I have shot in over 180 countries on all seven continents, photographed over 1300 magazine covers, written 15 books, and have great advertising/magazine clients all over the world. I have completed countless assignments where I directed models, assistants, clients and make-up artists to photograph major, well-known advertising campaigns world-wide. My clients include many of the world's major advertising agencies, travel companies, airlines, cruise ships, magazines and Fortune 500 companies.
Yet I do STILL love taking pictures for the shear fun of it. For my enjoyment, and the reason I am on this site, I still enjoy shooting creative (mostly B&W) figure studies with an idea that I create in my brain. I want models who can do either nudes or regular lifestyle advertising images from time to time, either in my home state of Florida or as I travel our Earth. I have even shot B&W nudes in cold Antarctica! (check my real life website for those)
Look at my website www.billbachmann.com to see my advertising, travel, lifestyle and nude photography and also see my lectures & seminars coming up soon. We have a lot of great advertising clients, but I also often love to shoot for just me with my crazy, crazy ideas.
My "Red Stockings" picture won PIC OF THE DAY. My reward always is knowing that the work is from ideas in my head, even without any prizes..
I have been selected "Photographer of the Year" in the People's Choice Awards, "Photographer of the Year" in Asia, ASMP President & board member, PPA board member, selected to "Who's Who In The World", guest lecturer in over 300 Photography Conventions & meetings, been a guest on over 100 TV & radio talk shows, worked with 4 US Presidents, and had a great time with a career that I truly love. I am often available to lecture to camera clubs & photo organizations if you write and inquire. And I do love so many of my commercial assignments. BUT..... my best assignment is always my next one!
Recently I have had great shoots in Australia, the Greek Islands, then Cuba twice and shot wonderful images in Kenya, Tanzania and Ethiopia. I had a cool shoot shoot in Dubai in the U.A.E. and just returned from a shoot in the sand dunes of Namibia. I will be off to Northern Norway and then later to Spain & Morocco. I tend to always be busy on some projects, but will have plenty of time to shoot some Nudes & Fine Art. So models, if you are interested, just dash off a note here. I do love my assignment work, but also love the freedom that B&W Fine Art Nudes allows both me and the models I shoot
My three latest books would be good for photographers who want to learn about the business!!
My latest book "Remember The Joy" will help any photographer who wants to make money from stock photography and help in getting better assignment work. "Send Me Anywhere" and "Images of Woman" are great picture books for ideas to share with other photographers & nude models. All books are available to order on my website www.billbachmann.com If you mention Model Mayhem when ordering, you can take 20% off price of book. If you want them signed to you, just include that in a note. Hope the books help to make you a better model or photographer!
