I've been living in Fresno for 7 years and have only now discovered Mono Lake. This place is absolutely gorgous. So gorgous in fact that I am dying to take talented model(s) up there to see what we can shoot in the course of a weekend. I can not wait for next year.
In addition to the lake, there is a ghost town with loads of potential and the drive up is extremely scenic.
I'll be looking to create a wide range of images that include whatever concepts you and I can come up with. I do not want to be constrained to non-nudes or dance around implied nude definitions - so a willingness to shoot full artistic nudity is a requirement.
Finding the right places may require some hiking and some outdoor skills (canoe for example). You should be comfortable with getting around outside in rough terrain. Good flexibility and artistic outdoor modeling experience would be huge pluses, but are not hard requirements.
Budget is limited, but I'll certianly pickup reasonable travel expenses (like gas money from the bay area or Sacremento - no airfare) and all costs for the duration of the trip. Gas, food, hotel, admissions, etc.
If you feel the need to come escorted, I will not pay their expenses.
I am looking to shoot this over the weekend of October 25. I do have a little bit of flexiblity.
Please respond directly to me via a PM with your interest, questions and anything else I need to know in order to hire you. I will make a decision and notify those selected by October 17th.
Best - Ed
