I occasionally paint tasteful, non-explicit artistic nude, semi-nude, and implied nude figurative portraits from conceptual nude character study photo reference poses using an artist's model.
I am looking for models who are comfortable with low-stress, relaxed, tasteful art nude poses and implied nude character study reference poses and have the patience and professionalism to hold a pose as I compose and frame optimal angles for each photograph.
Any photo shoot that I commission with a model is a paid assignment, so if I contact you for a project, and you are interested in shooting, please respond with your rate(s).
Some models enjoy having a copy of their photos for their own professional or personal use. It may take me a few days to get to it, but upon request I am generally happy to make a copy of the full photo session for any model and she is then free to use or edit her pictures however she would like. In technical terms, you may consider that you hold non-exclusive publication rights to any photo provided to you by me.
I generally book in one-hour increments, but rarely need the entire hour (I do always still pay for the entire hour) in order to capture the specific poses that I am interested in using as the possible basis for later oil or acrylic paintings.
Models are always welcome to bring a chaperone or friend to any photo shoot (so long as they remain respectfully in the background and let us efficiently get our shots).
