IF I ADD YOU ON HERE, IT MEANS I'D LIKE TO SHOOT WITH YOU
I'm in Countryside, IL (South West Suburbs of Chicago, near LaGrange/Brookfield)
Let me know if you have any special talents and I'd love to try and make a shoot out of it. For example if you can play the piano and have access to a grand piano, I'd love to try and turn that into a shoot. I like to be creative and do interesting things rather than your typical glamor shots.
I like like the darker or more bizarre side of life, but I'm open to all kinds of shoots. And although I do all kinds of shoots, if you have an idea you want to try that requires leaving a studio or going off the beaten path, I'm that photographer. It's pretty difficult to scare me off with a shoot idea, so lay it on me.
That being said, blah blah blah, modeling is a career, so is photography. If I'm not making money off of your photos, it's not likely I'm going to pay you cash. However, I do have connections and other ways that I will sometimes (not always) pay models with. I own my own printing company and also am the President of The Offering magazine (a heavy metal zine) and sometimes may need models for projects related to that or sometimes can line people up with other organizations related to. I can also trade professional business cards for your time if that's something you'd be interested in. I recently did some shoots for the Chicago Metal Alliance Calendar and I shoot with bands frequently, if we work well together, I will be more than happy to give a referral. Talk to me, and I can give you more details, but for the most part, I'm TFCD/P (Time for CD / Photos)
If I really like a photo I take I may make poster prints for purchase in which I'll split net profits with the model(s).
Many of my shoots are goth, metal, dark themed, etc, but I are not limited to them.
I VERY RARELY PAY MODELS except in certain circumstances (read on). For the most part, my photography is a hobby, i.e., I don't make money at it either and photography is an expensive hobby (my camera body alone was $1600)
If I am going to pay you to do a shoot, then I will need you to sign all sales rights away on the photo stating that I am free to sell any of the photos I take at my own leisure and without royalties. If I am paying you for a shoot, then I feel that I have purchased all rights from you. I do not run a modeling magazine (just a heavy metal one), I do not work for a company.
I hear all the time that modeling is a career, well so is photography. If you want to make money as a model in this business you need to book work with companies, not just photographers. My work is for your portfolio and in some rare cases for sale.
Current Shoots That I Want To Do
I am currently looking for: (some of my shoots require custom outfits, if you'd like to keep the outfit after the shoot you have to pay for it at a discounted price, if I'm keeping the outfit, I will pay for it.)
Implied Nudity: You may be nude on the set of the shoot, but nothing will show in the photos, unless you want it too.
Experimental: Meaning I have not worked with this medium in the past and am experimenting with it myself. Model should be someone with some free time and looking to have fun.
Tattoos (model would ideally have bright, colorful tattoos and wouldn't mind showing them off)
Pagan/Viking (kilt, war paint, the works)
Splatterfest (white corset, panties, stockings, garters splattered in blood with a big smile while holding an axe)
Phantom Of The Opera
Liquid Latex (experimental, implied nudity) - Michelle Summers
Body Paint (experimental, implied nudity/nudity) - This will be with a professional body painter, the cost to work with the body painter is $180, so I'd need lots of notice.
Motor Oil (experimental, implied nudity/nudity) - similar to body paint, but covered in motor oil.
Morbid Fairytales (Dark Versions (goth/alternative) of fairytales)
Wizard Of Oz (Wicked Witch of the West) -
Little Red Riding Hood - Samantha Obluck
Gretyl - Cherry Darling
Snow White (need dark hair/very pale skin) -
Alice in Wonderland - Vicki Volt
Girls to Model for a Lady who makes custom corsets and dresses
So far (but still need more) - Samantha Obluck, Lisa Jablonski, Cherry Darling,
Elizabeth Bathory shoot (bathtub full of blood)(partial/implied nude)(looking for a portable clawfoot bathtub.)
Salem Witch (not green with a long nose) (must be willing to get wet in a lake) - Christa Chockley
Phantom Of The Opera -
Someone to play Hanzel (Hanzel And Gretyl) -
Salem Witch (Priest/Executioner)(Dressed in a black or brown robe, or possibly as a quaker if I can find the outfit) -
