Note: I'm not on this site other than for creating castings from time to time. If you are interested in booking me for a shoot contact:
- Please describe the nature of the shoot, location(s), do you require hair/makeup/wardrobe stylist/etc.
- If the use is for commercial / advertising use, please specify this
I was born and raised in Toronto and have been happy to work with some wonderful people here. I look forward to meeting and working with as many talented people on and off MM. I would like to partner with MUAs, Hairstylists, Designers, Models, etc to collaborate on shoots throughout the year on an ongoing basis.
PAID Shoots only! Very Limited TF, will be willing for those with concepts that are mutually beneficial (non-commercial use), such as for magazine submission. I don't honestly have time for TF, I have enough paid work to keep me busy, but I will make time if I see a benefit. In terms of images provided, I only provided selected edits, no raw images will be provided. When it comes to paid work, that gets done first. I don't have time to do all the planning the planning for TF shoots though it depends on the shoot. I do now have a staff available to plan shoots for larger productions for paid shoots if required.
Currently I am looking to partner with other creative people on an on-going or project-to-project basis to help with organizing and working on shoots. So, any MUA's, Hairstylists, Wardrobe artists, Designers, etc contact me through my site at www.lubintasevski.com. I currently have 7 photographers, 3 cinematography teams, 1 wardrobe stylist, I have a half dozen hair and makeup people I go to often, but always find times when I'm searching for one due to availability, so opportunities still exist.
I won't update my MM account much as I don't intend on paying for a premium or VIP account when I can post thousands of photos on Facebook for free or on my site. Feel free to go and check out my work at:
5004 Timberlea Blvd, Unit 33
****Shoots are scheduled by appointment, book early (min 3 weeks in advance) to get the time you want****

What is Lubin like?
I'm here for business not socializing, so I expect professionalism from those I work with. That being said, I am easy going and a genuinely nice guy.
I prefer to work with experienced models as when a client is paying for a shoot there is no time to mentor or teach models how to pose and succeed in the business, etc, that is your job as the model. Just like I don't tell MUAs how to apply makeup. So I hope you come to the shoot ready to go so we can make some magic. That being said I understand new models have no experience, so I will try to be more patient and helpful on some TF shoots or when paid by a model for a shoot, but still don't come to a shoot like a deer in headlights. The camera is not a magical tool that makes pictures better the more expensive it is. Modeling is not much different than acting, if you are not familiar with the role you are put in, do research, practice, practice, practice. At some sets/shoots a director will send you packing if you show up unprepared and I don't want that to happen.
Where can we shoot?
We can shoot in studio or on location (outdoors or in the comfort and privacy of your own space).
What do I like to see in a model?
I want to see someone that can perform for the camera. To me the only difference between a model and performer is that the shot is still and not moving. So if given a role to display in a shot, whether simply sexy or happy to evil or deprived, let see the emotion throughout your body and be real to the role you are given, even if you yourself are not what you are portraying.
I shoot with a few Canon DLSRs (Canon 60D, 7D, 5D mkII and 5D mkIII), a variety of lenses, a variety of studio lighting equipment.
