If you would like to model for me you have to be over the age of 18. A model release is also required to legally allow me the right to use your image. I have worked with models between the ages of 18 and 75 with varying degrees of shapes and sizes. I can do glamour, but lots of photographers do that. I prefer your most natural state. No jewelry, no make-up, nothing that isn't natural.
Most all of my models are non-professionals and most have never posed nude before. Several whom have modeled for me recall the experience as liberating and often therapeutic. Some just want the chance to see themselves in an artistic atmosphere and I afford them that opportunity. Self-expression, curiosity, exploration, empowerment are some of the reasons I get for women who choose to model for me. Ask me about Private Commissions!
If you received a business card from me and I personally asked you to pose for me, then more than likely I have a specific project in mind that I could use your help for. Right now, I am handing out several, so I can develop a good local modeling pool. I'd like to do about 2 to 4 shoots a month.
If by chance you have stumbled across my site, or heard about me somehow and would like to work with me, then I would appreciate your contact info, a short description of what you have in mind, and the means of how you came to hear of me. When I respond to you, I may ask a few more questions and request a recent photograph. The photograph does not have to be nude but clothes that are form fitting are preferred.
I have a MODEL RESOURCES section available on my blog at www.PhotoAnthems.blogspot.com where you can visit other sites with advice on warnings for amateur models as well as articles on the experiences of models who pose nude for the first time. Most times, I conduct two interviews. Most questions get answered by the first interview. Normally the second interview is you deciding what you want to do and then discussing concepts for the shoot. I have a hardcopy of all the information you need for you to take home and read thoroughly.
