Seeking multiple FEMALE models for multiple fine arts nude photography shoots being shot in November, possibly December, and January in Lynchburg, VA.
*** IMPT: Models only interested in doing Playboy or Hustler style photos NEED NOT APPLY. These are for fine art photographs, not over-sexualized, raunchy, or racy images. ***
*NOTE: This is specifically for FEMALE models comfortable with being shot nude. These shoots are for a series of photographs taken by a respected, professional, and established Lynchburg based photographer, primarily for a photography exhibit that will open in spring of 2020, and all shoots will be done in a professional, elegant, artistic, classy, and tasteful manner. No lewd, raunchy, or inappropriate behavior or actions will be requested nor will be permitted. Again, models only interested in doing Playboy or Hustler style photos need not apply. If you've done photo shoots like that in the past or regularly do them, it's fine for you to apply, but just know that it will be a VERY different experience and you need to be comfortable with the fact that you may end up being in a shoot with natural hair and makeup, possibly bare-faced, and will need to be able to offer a wide range of expressions and body movement per direction from photographer and not capable of only delivering "sexy faces" or "sexy poses."*
*** DETAILS & WHO WE'RE LOOKING FOR ***
*Anyone comfortable with nude modeling is encouraged to apply though experienced models, especially those who have done nude modeling before, will be given preference and are highly encouraged to apply.
*All body types, ages, and races are welcome, we want variety and diversity, and are especially seeking those with unique faces or characteristics! Although experienced models that have modeled nude before are encouraged to apply and preferred, first-timers are welcome to apply as well as long as you are 100% sure you're comfortable with being photographed nude and having the photos placed on exhibit or published online or in print. If interested, and have confidence that you can fully commit to the shoot, exhibition of photos, and/or publication of the photos, please do not let an insecurity you have about your body or appearance stop you from applying!
*Must be comfortable with doing full-frontal nudity and/or full backside nudity.
*All of the shoots will be of individual models, there will not be anyone else in the photos with each selected model. Each shoot will have a slight "theme" even if it's a simple black and white shot against a backdrop in studio and each shoot will be one on one with the photographer, a member of the production team and/or hair and makeup, and if you so choose, you may elect ONE person of YOUR choosing to accompany you and remain present with you at all times before, during, and after the shoot, though all people present - including the model -- will be required to sign non-disclosure agreements relating to the content, styling, and other production details, and this NDA will remain in effect until selected photo of model has premiered at exhibit/in series, been published online/in print at photographer's choosing, and/or until photographer states NDA is no longer in effect.
*Please note that you may be asked to shoot both interior and/or exterior shots. In other words - it may be that a model's shoot takes place outside and it may be cold, especially if your photo shoot occurs in January. Any shots taken outside will of course be in private and you will not be asked to pose nude in any outdoor environment where the chances of the public will see you or where you would be at risk for public nudity that breaks the law.
If you're NOT comfortable with shooting outside, please specifically note this in your response/application!
*For the chosen models, details of the date and time for your shoot and other details pertaining to the shoot (ie, location, theme, hair and makeup, any use of props, etc.) will be provided upon selection and commitment from model.
*** HOW TO APPLY - Please pay careful attention so to not leave out any required details ***
*Preference is given to models that apply by November 13th.*
*Please apply via email by sending a short summary of your experience, and any details you feel are important for us to be aware of or consider and also send:
- If you have nude modeling experience, please detail it in your cover letter and tell us about your
experience (what it was for, when it was done, who it was for, how it was utilized, etc).
- If you have never done any nude modeling but are willing to do so, please note this in your cover letter
and explain why you're choosing to do it now but have not done it before. Those without nude modeling
experience may be asked for test shots.
*Please include your stats including age, weight, height, current hair color and type (short, long, curly, etc), and any other details regarding your look or physique that you feel we may want to know about or that set you apart and you think make you unique.
*If you have experience modeling in general, please submit a link to your online portfolio or to other photos.
*If you have done PROFESSIONAL nude modeling before, please submit links and or photos of nude modeling shots as well. You are welcome to watermark ALL photos you submit for consideration to ensure they are not copied or distributed in any way. However, please ensure any watermarks do not completely cover your face or body in a way that prevents us from being able to clearly see you in the photos.
*If you have modeled before, please provide at least THREE references and their contact info regardless of your nude modeling experience. Extremely recent references are preferred.
***If you HAVE done nude modeling before, please ensure that at least one, if not all, of your references are
from nude modeling gigs.***
*Please include any dates and/or times between now and January 31st that you would not be able to shoot on or commit to in your cover letter, other than Thanksgiving Day, Christmas Eve and Christmas Day, New Year's Eve, or New Year's Day.
*Please include your contact info including cell and/or other phone numbers you can easily be reached at, email address, location (what city/town you live in), and any relevant profiles on social media outlets (such as your Instagram handle.)
*Pay is dependent upon experience and on which photo shoot you are selected for.
*Please include "Application for Nude Female Model - Fine Arts Exhibit" in your subject line.
*Applications/Emails without cover letters, references, links to portfolios and/or photos will not be considered.
*Feel free to include any questions you have for us in your applications/cover letters.
*Serious inquiries only please! If there's a doubt in your mind about nude modeling, please save us all the time and effort involved and pass on this. We will have other opportunities in the future that you can keep an eye out for that are not nude shoots.
Thank you in advance and we look forward to hearing from you!
