Would you like to Model?

I am almost always seeking to expand my portfolio to include more fine art and model photos.

I am looking for models willing to TFP (trade for prints), who live in, or plan to travel to, the Seattle area. If we choose to work together, I offer a selection of images shot (sized for web/internet use), plus two 8"x10" professional prints of your choice, negotiable depending on your experience and the success of the shoot. Additional prints can be purchased at a nominal cost.

No experience is necessary. All serious inquiries welcome. Outgoing personality, a slight exhibitionist tendency, and a photogenic appearance are all I require.

I see TFP as a mutually beneficial arrangement. You get some experience in front of a camera. I get some experience working with a model. You get some highly unique images and prints for your portfolio, and so do I. I would expect that we both need to work together to produce images that we both think will benefit our portfolios. I will have some ideas in mind for what I want, but I will be open to shooting something you want as well.

What I am currently looking for:
- Male models, 18-30, in good shape, from slender to slightly muscular build.
- Any race or ethnicity (non-caucasians strongly encouraged).
- Punk/alternative lifestyle models (either gender).
- Female models, non-traditional look, butch.

What I am not looking for:
- Steroid muscle-pumped hulks.
- Traditional pretty female models (there are tons of photographers doing that already).
- Wannabe porn stars.

I will most likely shoot digital with a Canon 5D (a high quality digital SLR). I have a full range of high quality lenses and studio lighting equipment.

A note on nudity: Nudity is not a requirement, but my ongoing fine art project, Painting With Light, is particularly suited to artistic nudes, so willingness to do mild nudity is a plus. ‘R’ rated, unless you are looking for something stronger for your portfolio.
