From time to time I look for new faces and talent to help me build my portfolio and model for me. These times are few but they do happen! So that new face could be you! If you’re interested, please read on!
If you are selected for a test shoot, you will receive the shooting time and up to 10 to choose 3-5 retouched images in high resolution format. However, be aware that, under no circumstances, do I pay models for test shoots.
If you want to apply for this shooting position, you will need to provide the following information:
- Phone number
- Age (please note that if you are under the age of majority – eighteen (18) years of age – you will need to provide your parents name, phone number, and contact information as well as CC them the same email that you sent me. After you have been selected, you are then required to meet me in person before the shoot with your parent or guardian at which time I will check their ID and have them sign a parental model release)
- Measurements including, chest, waist, height and weight (if you do not know these, learn these before contacting me)
- 5 photographs of you (photographs do not need to be professional – selfies are fine – but they should show your build and figure and NOT JUST YOUR FACE). These should be front, back, and side photos of you and face shots.
All application emails should be sent to: firstname.lastname@example.org
What I am looking for in a model
EVERYONE SIGNS A MODEL RELEASE!! NO EXCEPTIONS! This model release is good for one year from the date of your signature.
IF YOU FLAKE ON YOUR TEST SHOOT, YOU WILL BE REQUIRED TO SCHEDULE A PAID SESSION BEFORE YOU WILL EVER BE CONSIDERED FOR ANOTHER TEST SHOOT. NO EXCEPTIONS.
For more detailed information on what I look for in a model (height, build, BF%, etc.), please click the following links:
I work with both men and women. The age range for each genre is different and varying, but typically between 18 and 40 is the range that I look for most often. No previous modeling experience is required but highly sought after.
Any photographs that you send to me should have been taken in the last month. Any photographs older than that will be denied and deleted. At least one photograph should be at a neutral angle with a neutral face (this means no duck/pucker/kissy faces). At least one photograph should show your body/form. Swimsuits are great for this. 5’3 to 6ft, thin, FIT, to average body type and pretty face are what I am looking for. Typically between sizes 0-6.
If you have tattoos I NEED to see photos of it when you send me your photographs. Beauty models: NO ink
You must include your current stance on nudity/implied nudity, and lingerie in photographs in your email. My intention is to create glamorous and artistic representations of the female form, not to be a perv. If you are opposed to any of this you may want to to re-consider working with me as a model.
All images should be taken in the last month, any photographs older than that will be denied and deleted. At least one photograph should be at a neutral angle with a neural expression. At least one other photograph should be of your body/form. Shirtless is good. Abs are good but not required. 5’5 to 6ft+, tone/fit/healthy body type and chiseled features are what I am looking for. To do fitness you MUST BE FIT. To do fashion you must be fit/lean and tall.
If you have tattoos I NEED to see photos of it when you send me your photographs.
You must include your stance on posing with women in lingerie, implied nudity, and in nude form. You must also include your stance on appearing shirtless in photographs. If you are opposed to any of this you are not in danger of being passed over for any projects. This is merely to know where you stand on these matters.
Minors will NOT, under any circumstances, pose suggestively, in the nude, with implied nudity, shirtless, or anything else that may be considered child pornography. If this is suggested then you will be asked to discontinue communication and/or leave the set.
Hair and makeup may be required for the shoot but is dependent on the theme of the shoot. If the hair and makeup artist feels that it is something that they want to do, they may do it for free as well. Otherwise, you are required to pay them their rate for that shoot. You are not required to use my hair and makeup artist for test shoots, but I ask that you have your makeup done professionally or at least done by the guidelines that we agree upon before coming to the set. If you show up without hair and a face on, you will be asked to leave and your next shoot will not be free.
Wardrobe is the responsibility of the talent. Please do not send me ideas of which you do not have the wardrobe or something like it. If you show up at the set without the proper attire (i.e. fitness – gym clothes, workout attire, shorts. Fashion – fashionable dress, accessories, etc.), you will be asked to leave. This will be discussed in more detail if you are selected. Name brand clothing is NOT required. However, wardrobe must be clean, without tears, scars, threading, and missing important elements.
It is important that you know that due to the high number of applications I receive regularly you will only receive a response if you are selected for a project. Responses to applications could take anywhere from 1 to 30 days. I get a lot of applications and out of those applications I choose a very, very select few people for personal projects. So, if you are waiting for me to respond to an email to work with me, but you simply must work with me then I suggest that you book a session with me. For session rates I suggest you look at my rates on my website(s) via the links below.
It has been known to happen that I am pretty taken by a client that I ask to use them again in the future and you will be placed on my list of talent to use for projects. This has happened more than once in the past and I am sure it will happen again!
