Started out simply helping out a couple of photographers in University and friends who wanted to become photographers, and I suppose thats where the passion started. In heinsight I should have kept in touch with them and organised some shoots to see how far we have all come.

I then decided to go the other side of the lens and did photography for a while, however I couldn't be happy with it when I really wanted to get in on the pictures so I put it down and took up modelling. Initially starting with shoots with friends and family, then building up to the more interesting, surreal and stylized shoots.

My experience is quite extensive, I have worked group shoots, themed shoots, for artists and students, underwear shoots, infact I am getting to a stage where there is very little that I haven't done...But there is always more or inventive twists on concepts I have played with already. I am all ears if you feel you have something new I would suit.
As a general rule, the stranger the concept is, the more likely I am to be excited by it. I enjoy the surreal and when original concepts are twisted in some manner. Combining this with the alternative style and I have found that great images can be created.

My main inspirations within styles are H.R.Giger, Victoria Frances, Tim Burton, Him Henson
and several others.

My rates are £10-£15 per hour, depending ofcourse on travel and makeup and such, however I'm still happy to do TF shoots if I think that it will either benefit my Portfolio or the idea is ingenious.....usually one and the same.

Jason has a unique look that just works! I would definately work with him again and would recommend him to any other models or photographers looking for an experienced, versatile and hilarious guy to work with.

In my limited experience male models are usually reluctant, uncomfortable and wooden. Not Valen!
Valen is full of ideas energy and fun, he takes direction well develops the shot and makes it unique. Valen is comfortable working alone and in groups. Valen is comfortable working from light humorous shoots right through to dark and sinister shoots and carries both ends of the spectrum with ease.
Well done Valen, here's to the next time

Have worked with Valen in two shoots now, and he has a high range of facial expressions and he is not afraid to try new things. His explosion of energy as a whole is wonderfully positive and will always make you giggle ^_^
I highly recommend him as both a model and friend. ^_^
