My name is Chas Kimbrell
I am a photographer in Plainview NY, originally from North Carolina.
I have been in and out of photography since 1974. I started out shooting Rock and Roll concerts and working for Modern Recording Magazine. I have since done photo-jounalistic projects as well as headshot and portfolio work for models, actors and performers. I shoot glamour, fashion, commercial and promotional as well as creative and artistic projects. I work mostly with digital now and also use Photoshop for retouch and artistic photo-manipulations.
Feel free to check out my main page as well #245121
I like to shoot Series and Theme oriented projects which brings us to. . .
"A SHIRT AND HIGH HEELS"
About the Project:
(please read this before contacting me to shoot the series)
The main premise is very basic. The model will have 3 things to work with - a plain backdrop, a Shirt and a pair of High Heels.
I shoot every model in a Men's white dress shirt provided by me but, also in a 2nd shirt of their choice either from the one's I provide or one they bring to the shoot. . . The 2nd shirt can be ANY kind of shirt. . .as long as it is a shirt.. . (long, short, tight, loose, large or small; a dress shirt, tee shirt, tank top, blouse, pullover, any material. . . .whatever). Be Creative!
for the shoot BUT
You must be willing to pose in ONLY a Shirt and a pair of High Heels. . .
No other garments (or undergarments) of any kind -
NO EXCEPTIONS. . .
The concept is a sort of an experimental, learning experience, challenge type of shoot. How you wear and/or use the shirt and how much is covered or uncovered is entirely up to you. You can button the shirt up to the neck and stand straight with your arms folded. . . OR. .. take the shirt off, throw it on the floor and stand on it (and anything in between).
The idea is for the model to make her own statement within this limited framework, put her own creativity to work and explore her boundaries. The shoot equally challenges me as a photographer to capture interesting and creative images working within the design of the shoot.
My goal is to shoot 100 MODELS
for this series and showcase them here on a VIP page.
Since I have decided to make this a 100 model project, I would also like to have as much diversity as possible. I am interested in all styles and types of models.
Some of the specific types I am looking for include:
More Inked and Alternative types, Fitness and/or Bodybuilder types.
I am especially looking for the following:
. . .Identical preferred but, non-identical is fine too
. . .Again, prefer that there is a strong resemblance
ALL FEMALE GROUPS
. . .If you are an all female group such as a band, dance group, sports team, or any other similar grouping, contact me and we can discuss it!
NOTE: EVERY MODEL YOU SEE IN THIS PORTFOLIO IS WEARING ONLY TWO THINGS. . . A SHIRT. . .AND A PAIR OF HIGH HEELS.
Sound interesting? Then let's set something up. . .
Shoots are usually on Saturdays or Sundays and occasionally a weekday night for those who simply cannot make the weekend shoots.
My Series and Theme Projects are all TFCD
meaning I will provide the best images from the shoot via email and/or CD. These will be fully retouched images in both Full Resolution (for printing) and resized (for posting on the web). The number of finished images I provide depends on the project, and must be discussed and agreed upon before the shoot. In most cases I post watermarked proofs of the entire shoot on a secure website for evaluation or burn them to a CD within 3 days after the shoot.
In no case do I ever give a CD with all the unedited images. I am sure that as a model you only want your best work on display; likewise, as a photographer who is passionate about his work, I only want my best work on display as well. . .'nuff said.
