I am now living in Edmonton Alberta, Canada and looking for local models that want to experience working with a traditional artist.
I specialize in glamour and classic / modern pinup artwork. I am self taught and produce highly realistic art. My paintings are from my photographs or are provided by the model with copywrite permission.
Typically I pay my models with a free black and white portrait painted on canvas 16"x20" suitable to be either mounted on the wall as is or to be framed, or give them a discount on a larger painting. The painting doesn't necessarily have to be of the model either, it could be her child or a parent etc.
I encourage models to have an escort that they feel comfortable posing in front of and we will work in an environment that they feel comfortable in.
I invite the model to bring any ideas/outfits that they would like to try to the shoot and I am completely open to suggestions. I am not a professional photographer but keep in mind that the photograph isn't the final product in this case and will result in a great painting. I provide a cd of the images un-retouched for free and permission to use them as the model desires.
Just for fun I put this little thing down here so if you message me please use the topic "pinups" just to show you spent the time to read my profile.
Thank you in advance.
