Phone issue resolved! Thank you to all that have been experiencing difficulties with communication. Just wanted to give disclaimer; I will only upload smaller (lower res) images. I will have more uploaded on my Flickr account and Tumblr accounts soon. They have a bit more freedom and I am just using this place as a tool to help me work with more local models regardless of experience.
Oh Yes, changed the name to "Sirrah Swan Studios" from "GoldFlagStudios" but I still have some past work out there with goldflagstudios credit.
I dropped my phone and it was the final drop apparently. So I do apologize but I will be without phone until Thursday. Sprint is great like that... So please bare with me and use my email goldflagstudios @ gmail for contact. For those that I have been in contact with and may have missed follow-up communications this is the reason.
Thank you again!
Introduction: Hello Everyone and Welcome!
I am seeking to expand my portfolio and find models that are interested in working consistently with me (but only seeking 10 or so for my current projects). I am interested in building and expanding my portfolio to feature primarily females , in Colorado, doing things we "Coloradians" love. I am interested in clothed, implied nude or nude shoots. I own another Colorado-based business and the models may be used to market my products and promote my business; though, any nudes will not be used for my business - rule makers would hate that in my industry.
Lifestyle and Outdoor photography are what I love. I love natural light - and since Colorado is so beautiful, it seems to work out for me well. I have recently acquired a taste for doing more urban style shoots featuring more grit, dirt, and darkness - BUT I want to extract that from our everyday surroundings that are necessarily that way. I know... sounds weird, but give me a chance! ;-)
I typically will supply the model with release contract etc. I will supply the model with a PDF outlining the project and the role you take; especially for the Lifestyle series I'm starting.
Project 1: Outdoor nude shoot / some props (scarves, shoes, accessories, glasses, hats, etc) feature landscapes, and activities related to outdoor-life in Colorado.
Project 2: Urban Lifestyle Series: I will explain this one to the models once we meet. These will be typically in more modern (downtown) type settings to capture what I am seeking. Although I prefer to stay in the Springs, I may travel to Denver for this project and that would require the models to do the same. I will compensate for travel though!
Although I am not currently publishing for the public, I do have the ability to publish almost any format and style product on the market for retail and distribution. If these projects work, I may consider launching a magazine/photobook featuring the work we build together. If this happens, I will discuss royalties and options at that point.
Thank you again for your time.
Short about the Photography/Publishing company (old):
ZMe Productions and GoldFlagStudios was originally started to develop conceptual art and assets for video games; however, through years of soul-searching I found photography is my passion. I love the ability to capture an image that tells a story. As I started researching different styles and passions' of other photographers, I found that lifestyle & portrait photography most. I love interacting with people, and I love learning something interesting about them. I love working with people that are inspired and dedicated to building their future. I believe that independent talent is the best, and most enjoyable form of entertainment. Yes, everyone loves the mainstream but there is a unique perspective that is depicted with independent productions and that gives me a higher appreciation for the work and the creators.
