About MeMODELS: I can only work with you if you are over 18. Please also be willing to get up uncomfortably early to shoot.
I rarely remember to update my portfolio here; you can see much more thorough and up-to-date examples of my work at my site: http://sarahallegra.com
Internationally published conceptual, fine art photographer and self-portrait artist.
I've been in front of the camera for a long time as Artos the Bear: http://www.modelmayhem.com/artosthebear
Now I'm stepping behind the lens. It's been incredibly fulfilling for me to bring my own visions to life and create the art I want. I see the world mythically, symbolically and spiritually. I want my photos to have these same qualities. I take a lot of inspiration from fairy tales, myths, stories and music. If there are any fairy tales or myths which especially resonate with you, please mention that to me and we may be able to create a photo idea around it!
I'm looking for male and female models, 18 and up, who would like to work with me, who are not afraid to be raw, emotional, and vulnerable; who have an ability to EMOTE. I need deep emotions from you, and I need to see it not only in your face, but your whole body. We are telling stories together, and you carry a big part of it! So be ready to be raw and brave!
You do not have to be willing to do nudes to work with me, but I will be able to use you for more ideas if you are :)
When I shoot someone, there is a specific end image I have in my head; a goal image to reach. Usually each picture is very detailed and tells it's own story. For each concept I use you for, you will get one beautiful, high-quality, retouched image. If we shoot two different concepts, that means you're getting two different shots from the shoot. My shoots are not the kind of shoots where you walk away with tons of photos; this is for creating a select few, incredible images which you will be able to display with pride. My goal is quality over quantity where photography is concerned. My shoots tend to be fairly short, so you won't be devoting your entire day to me. I should also note that I do not send out CDs full of raw images. The photos I create often require a lot of post-production, and as such I only release the retouched photos.
Because of the mysterious, other-worldly feel to many of my photos, your face may not be showcased as much as some models are used to. I'm going for an overall look and feel, and sometimes having your eyes closed, your face turned away or otherwise obscured creates a much more interesting image that if you were staring straight at the lens. Please be comfortable with this idea if you want to work with me. Look, you're beautiful! You've already proved it :) Trust me that sometimes less face is more. If you're unsure of what this will look like, just browse through my portfolio.
I don't get along with escorts. No matter how quietly they stand to the side, I still feel like my shoulder is being stared over. This is very not good for creativity. I'm happy to set up a coffee meeting with models who would like to meet me beforehand and make sure I'm not going to murder them.
My schedule varies from week to week but is generally somewhat flexible. However, since I do the majority of shoots out in nature, we are at the mercy of the sun. This means my shoots often have to happen very early in the morning, before the sun gets high in the sky. If I could make the sun rise later, I would, but that's just the way things are.
Be bold and brave! Inspire me! Let's make beautiful art together!
