I am a New York City photographer--I spend about 90% of my time in the city--when not traveling. The other 10% of the time I'm in Roxbury, NY in the Western Catskills. I'm looking for models for a project to be shot over the spring, summer and fall. All types of models are welcomed, but body modifications such as tattoos and piercings, as well as unique and unusual looks are a plus. Flexibility and long hair are also important for various parts of the project (but don't think that excludes you...if you're bald, I want you too!).
This project involves the juxtaposition of nude or implied nude models with public art and/or juxtaposition with stereotypical or iconic New York City streetscapes. See the first four images of my portfolio to get an idea. In this phase I am seeking to incorporate something of the model's personal narrative into the images. For instance, if you're a dancer, or musician, or a skateboarder, or a chef, or a dom, or an athlete, or whatever, I'd like to incorporate some part of that into the images.
The ultimate goal of all of the projects is fine-art prints for gallery showings. All models participating will receive copies of any prints used in shows.
If you are interested in working on one of my art projects, feel free to contact me. If you fit the need for the project I will compensate you TFP & TFCD.
