So.. With the start of part 2 of this thread... here are the lists. and the current information on our over 40 book project....
Please.. check the list and try to get with someone in your area.. Lynn has extended the cut off date to September 15th, 2008.
Back in October of last year (page 11) An idea was proposed for a book (later the thought of a calendar was included), of Mature Models all over 40.
Frequently a list was posted of those Photographers and Models who wanted to be included.
This list reflects those folks who've agreed to participate in a tribute to the 40+ year old mature models in our industry. The list allows folks to network together and produce images around the theme "Sexy Mature Model". The images will then be collected and we will produce a book and/or calendar (non profit) that will be available at cost to all who participated.
Not to long ago we decided start getting ready for this Book (and possibly Calendar) to go forward to the finished product.
The Person who with Lynn Louise was putting this together, stepped out of the project, and Lynn asked me to step in and help put it together.
Back on March 12th (page 81), I posted the final "lists" of Photographers and Models.
Due to the fact that some models did not have photographers on the list that were near them (in the same state), we decided to allow them to submit their images, if they have a written agreement from the photographer that they had permission to submit an image for publication in a book or calendar. As most (not all) releases or usage agreements, allow for portfolio use or comp cards, etc., not all allow for publication in a book or calendar that will be sold.
Ok....a little update as there have been some questions....
a. As long as the PHOTOGRAPHER is on the list, he/she CAN submit images of a non list MM model.
b. As long as the MODEL is on the list, she/he can submit images from a non list MM photographer. But the Model must have a written agreement from the photographer giving her permission to submit the images for publication in a book and/or calendar.
c. as long as the subject is over 40, then there is no time frame for how long ago the image was shot.....it does not matter if it was 9 months ago or 1 year, etc....as long as the subject was over 40 at the time.
2. Some have asked for an extension due to some upcoming shoots (i.e...warmer weather, etc.), so lets put the tentative deadline for September 15, 2008.
3. Since we are extending the deadline, then we have to change the time frame of the image....the image must have been taken no more then 9 months prior to June 2008.
We also cannot go by those #'s Actually look at the profiles and see that some youngsters are trying to pass. Thats why one must check Id's.
Seriously I was looking to make a MM picture list of models over 45 and there is NO way some of the 99 year old models can LOOK that good. We really should have truth in age listing here. I just got 278 models listed as 60-99. And 182 from 80-99. Yeah RIGHT!
