Jun Khanbekian, I love concepts that are different and have not been done often or even better not at all

After watching all kinds of things on the news etc. I just want to make the most of the time I have and to achieve and succeed in anything I wish to accomplish. Alternative modelling is definitely a way of life for me as you are being recognized by readers, followers and fans purely for being you.

My alternative modelling work consists of images that in some way or another resemble me as a person. That with every snap of the camera part of my character has been captured. I love concepts that are different and have not been done often or even better not at all. Character work and emphasis on my image are probably my main types of shoots.

To be honest casual and more natural I tend to find more challenging. I come from a small historic area in South East Kent in the UK, Rochester is also the home of another known world wide model Kelly Brooks who I am sure many of you know of. But around here to be truthful in the way of individuality there is slim to none what so ever. So it is great to know Rochester itself is home to some great models.

In 2014 I won the AMOTY Best UK Alternative Male Model. I have featured in 6 online magazines, 1 catalogue, 1 printed magazine, Kultur, Spiral Direct, Photo Shoot, Feroce, Centre stage, CT, Twisted Edge and Bizarre. Featured as cover for both Photo Shoot Magazine and Twisted Edge. In 2014 I worked alongside the well known International Model Shelly d’Inferno for the Spiral Direct Clothing Catalogue.

How would you describe your work, and what is your main goal with your work as a model? I would describe my work as Versatile however there are certain sides or concepts I prefer so much more then others, Character work and demonstrating my alter ego through images resemblance to myself. I dislike to do shoots that drift to far from my personality.

My goals as a alternative model would to be all I can be and to be, eventually to be known Internationally and to attend tattoo conventions across Europe selling and signing merchandise calendars, prints and t-shirts, this would be a dream. I do really appreciate and love everyone who has supported me. Up to this point I can only hope to progress further, I have the dedication and persistence just need continuous support.

What are your plans for the future are there any new exciting projects you wish to share with us? I have countless amount of plans for the future (laughs) erm again to eventually tour Europe attending Tattoo Conventions. Working with big brand names. And yes I do have some great shoots coming up.

I have a shoot on the 28th of February 2015 working alongside a great cast of alternative models one in particular being Welsh model Lady Lauren, internationally known and featured in more magazines you could count. In March this year I shall be attending and participating in a catwalk at Liverpool’s Albert Docks, and a few others on the horizon. So I can’t complain just remaining focused.
