I am located in the Puget Sound region, currently building my photography website and planning for ways to monetize my photography projects.
For most of my shoots I am going to need female models dress size 6 and smaller, with no tattoos. Projects will range from bland "girl drinking coffee", to concepts involving latex, bondage, and socially controversial topics. You do not have to involve yourself in all of those shoots if you have limitations on your comfort level. I will try to outline my expectations prior to each shoot.
Just about everything I shoot will be going into photography books, and will be posted to my websites, and likely submitted to stock photo sites which could mean your image will find its way into products sold around the world. Keep this in mind when you are considering whether to do a shoot.
Often my shoots will involve a "making of" video. Sometimes I use a cinema camera as the primary camera, extracting still frames from the footage; it is a very high-end camera that produces stills comparable to a dSLR. A lot of my shoots will involve an element of acting, this is not just to extract emotional images but also because I plan on eventually making movies and I take every opportunity to practice my skills at directing.
One other hobby/business I have recently started researching is dressmaking. I'm not very skilled at it, but if we develop a rapport as photographer & model then I will probably ask to make a dressform dummy based on your body so that I can design custom clothes for future shoots. For details on what it entails, look up "duct tape dressform" on YouTube.
