Seeking a full-figured, plus-size female model for a photo shoot being done for a fine arts photography exhibit that will open in Lynchburg, VA in spring of 2020 for a respected Lynchburg based photographer.
*ALL ages, those who are plus-sized, and all races will be considered and are welcome to apply! We love diversity and uniqueness!
*Please note that this is for a tasteful, fine arts photography project and we are not looking for a model to do anything distasteful, racy, degrading, or sexualized. This is 100% a fine art project. No lewd or raunchy behavior will be asked for, nor will it be permitted. Everything that we can do to make the model comfortable will absolutely be done.*
*Preference given to those who submit their information by Monday at 6PM*
*Preference will be given to those with prior nude modeling experience.*
This is a wonderful opportunity for a model that's looking to build their portfolio or just starting out, and to gain experience and a reference with a respected and reputable Lynchburg based artist who has worked with respected brands and artists nationwide, and a great networking and contact building opportunity. Snacks and drinks will be provided during shoot and model will have ability to use approved finished photo(s) at photographer's discretion in portfolio AFTER photo has premiered at exhibit and/or been published online or in print. Any other pay is dependent upon verified experience.
This shoot will occur on November 23rd or November 24th in downtown Lynchburg. (The model will only need to be on location one of those two days, and likely date of this model's shoot will be November 23rd. Call-time and amount of time of actual shoot will be determined likely by November 13th at the latest. We are seeking a plus-sized female model that is comfortable with doing an indoor shoot that will be quite simple, and essentially be the model against a black backdrop with a prop or two in hand (again, this NOT sexual at all).
This will be a solo shot - nobody else will be in the photos with the model, and the only people on set will be the photographer and MAYBE a member of the production team and/or makeup or hair. The model may also elect to have ONE person they can bring with them to the photo shoot to remain with them at all times - before, during, and after the shoot - though the model and model's companion will both need to sign a non-disclosure agreement pertaining to content/theme/style of the shoot and other production details which will remain in effect until the photo has premiered at the exhibit, or online or in-print, and/or at photographer's discretion.
What We're Looking For
We are seeking someone who:
-Preferably has posed nude/done nude modeling before and is therefore comfortable doing so. We are open to considering models who have not done nude modeling in the past but are willing to do it if the right person comes along that we feel we could rely upon to go through with nude modeling for the first time. Test shots may be required without prior nude modeling experience.
-Is comfortable with finished product(s) of photo shoot being used for an exhibit(s), published online, or in-print.
-Takes direction well, is versatile, and patient.
-Works well with photographer, production staff, makeup artist(s), and hair stylist where applicable.
-Is comfortable with wearing some sort of prosthetics and/or makeup if needed.
-Obviously comfortable in their own skin and is open to doing both full-frontal nudity, backside shots, shots from the side, or shots requiring poses of sitting or laying down.
