But the younger brother of James Bond star Daniel Craig, 46, was charging £15 an hour to take part in photoshoots. Harry Craig, 23, from Hindford, near Oswestry can be seen in a range of poses as he models for specialist pictures, some of them semi-clothed.

It is a far cry from the lifestyle enjoyed by his film star brother, who will reportedly earn more than £30 million for his next two 007 movies and is married to actress Rachel Weisz.

Harry, who attended Ellesmere College until 2007, said he spent two years modelling, but has now given up.

While Daniel Craig has become is one of the world's most famous actors, Harry has carved out a career as a male model, specialising in nude and fetish photos.

It is enough to leave you both shaken and stirred judged by these photographs of Harry, who lives with the brother's father Tim at Hindford, near Oswestry.

Harry, who attended Ellesmere College and worked as a barman at Chester Racecourse, says he has earned a global following for his alternative pictures.

He has reportedly posed for a number of publications featuring nude and fetish images and 'non­-mainstream' models.

But while big brother Daniel is believed to be earning £31 million for the next two 007 spy films and gained thousands of fans after appearing in his swimming trunks in Casino Royale, his younger sibling is paid just £15 an hour for his 'alternative' photoshoots.

And his model profile website says he will only accept a job if his travel expenses are paid because: "I cannot afford to drive everywhere."

He added: "I mostly specialise in gothic, horror and alt fashion but I am looking to expand this and add fetish and erotic work to my portfolio as well as more art nude and some fantasy stuff too."

The rate increases to £25 for nude shoots and £30 for more arty or fetish work, according to reports.

In his online profile, Harry described himself as an "alternative model from Shropshire, UK, with a fondness of Guinness, Victorian Gothic, Heavy Metal bands from the 70s and 80s, Chesterfield armchairs (Wingbacks) and log fires."

In the shoot, he poses wearing string vests, leather and chains and can also be seen snarling at the camera from underneath his strawberry blonde hair, sitting apparently naked astride a backwards chair, while smoking a cigar and wearing a bowler hat.

In a video on YouTube, which now appears to have been removed, Harry said he collects gas masks while drinking a glass of Guinness.

He said: "I look like a tramp . . . you probably wouldn't think I'm a model by the looks of it. I've got people spread out across the world who like my work . . . i's pretty cool.

He said: "When I first started out doing this I didn't think I'd get very far. Nearly two years on it's gone pretty well. Don't ask to see my gas masks though! My parents think I'm a freak and my brother thinks I'm a weirdo but I love them."

Harry has since said he's not currently working as a model.
