As anyone can tell by looking at my various Online Photography Portfolios (just do a Google Search for "Mick Tobyn" and you`ll find Tonnes of them...), my Photos celebrate the Female Form, in ALL of its various sizes, shapes, and colors...
*** I`m currently seeking PREGNANT Models for a "Maternity" Series that celebrates the special Beauty and Sensuality of Women when they`re experiencing the Miracle of being "With Child"...
*** For References, just look at the Maternity photos of Celebrities like Britney Spears and Christina Aguilera in Magazines like Vanity Fair, or the old photos of Demi Moore, who was the first woman I know of to have an "Implied Nude" Photo (totally Nude, but covering her "naughty bits" with her hands) on the cover of a National Magazine...
Or the Maternity photos of Nadia Leyf in my Portfolio, who was 9-months Pregnant at the time we did the Photo Shoot, which was mostly right in Toronto on the Shore of Lake Ontario. (The pics of her on the Rocks.)
*** My "Maternity" Series requires some Photos of the Models NUDE, or at least semi-Nude (Implieds or Silhouettes are OK), because you can`t celebrate the CURVES of a PREGNANT Woman properly if they`re covered up by a bunch of Clothes... ;-)
>>> The "Maternity" Series will be very Tasteful and Artistic though, as are all of my Nude Photos, and might make an excellent Coffee Table Book in the near future...
In the meantime the Photos might be showcased in Art Galleries, and will definitely appear in some of my Online Photography Portfolios, with Model Credits for the Mothers-To-Be...
*** All of the Models with also receive ALL of the photos on a CD afterwards for their own Modeling Portfolios, as long as they give me a Photographer Credit on any Portfolio Sites like Model Mayhem they post the pictures on, and put links to my own Portfolios on them if possible.
>>> Note: The Models must have a visible "Baby Bump" at the time of the Photo Shoots for the "Maternity" Series. (Otherwise how could the viewer tell they are Pregnant?)
*** But if they would like to meet with me beforehand to discuss ideas or to do some TEST SHOTS, they don`t have to have a "Baby Bump" at that time... They just have to be willing to be photographed Nude. ;-)
>>> This is especially true for any Models who want to Photo Document the Various Stages of their Pregnancy at Several Intervals... I obviously can`t do any BEFORE shots, but I can certainly do AFTER and DURING pregnancy photos.
*** I am even willing to do some "Mother With Baby" photos for the Maternity Series, and some "Just Baby" photos for the Models` own Scrapbooks, or Facebook pages...
>>> I used to be a Photographer in a Portrait Studio at Walmart, so I have shot lots of photos of Babies and Children, but wasn`t able to keep any for my Photography Portfolio for obvious Privacy Reasons. But I wouldn`t mind getting some of those shots for my Portfolio now, for Models who don`t mind having their Newborn Babies photographed for Public Display...
Think of the famous Anne Geddes baby photos you see everywhere in Prints and Calendars...
*** In the "Mother With Baby" photos the Mothers would be Clothed, or at least have their Breasts mostly Covered, because those photos would be more publicly displayed and viewed than most of the other ones... They could even make it into Medical Journals, or Mainstream Fashion or Health and Beauty Magazines, or other Periodicals... But the Models for those will also have to be willing to do the other Artistic Nude shots.
***** If you live IN or NEAR the TORONTO, Canada Area, or you`re able to get yourself there at your own cost, and you`re PREGNANT, and would like to Model for my "Maternity" Series:
Please CALL ME or EMAIL ME DIRECTLY at the Phone Number or Email Address below, because I rarely have time to check my Messages on ALL of the Photography Portfolio Websites I have Portfolios on, like here on Model Mayhem... But I check my Voicemail and Email almost daily. *****
