Because I own and run a fine art group here in Utah, I get suggestions for events all the time by various photographers.

Most of them are of "artistic" merit.

But "art nudes" on a child's playground or at a elementary school just isn't my idea of something 'artistic'...

Apart from the standard cheesy glamour stuff which I feel way too old and retarded to be doing. The worst was doing art nudes and being handed a cow skull to work with. what really annoyed me was that I had casted for a themed shoot. I agreed to cover the shots he wanted first which was nudes, after 2 hours of him getting me to do some seriously crummy nude themes and insulting me throughout ('m too old to be doing glamour and I need to be doing "age approriate" stuff) I invented an engagement I had to get home for and never got my shots.

I can't remember the other bad concepts that have been offered because i was smart enough to decline before the shoot. Once i'm at a shoot i usually just do it, i don't think it's right for me to refuse (unless it's dangerous or beyond my limits of course) when I'm being properly compensated.

Oh yeah, someone wanted to photograph me with 'their eyes" once. big_smile

Back when I was taking one of the class (I forgot the name of the class).  A teach suggested to take pic of oneself for a month.   It was really an interesting because you can see the mood changes from morning to night and it depends on the day as well.

  There are times an image capture our mood, emotion, feelings, and document the things that we do that simply make us unique in some way.  Those type of images have deeper meaning than pretended images (have makeup, wear pretty clothes, pretend to do this or what etc).

I knew someone would come in here and try to be all "but it's ar-rt!"  Taking one picture of yourself every day for a month is drastically different from having a complete stranger taking 12 hours worth of pictures of you doing nothing.

Both projects could result in interesting art, but in both cases they need to have some sort of deeper message than "I documented a random girl's entire day", which has been the extent of the project in all 5 cases in which it was pitched to me.  When pressed for more info, all five photographers said they were interested in showing me waking up, getting dressed, and brushing my teeth.  Like they were running some kind of waking up, getting dressed, brushing teeth fetish site.  I kid.  The "document your day", "take a picture of yourself a day", and let's throw in "a picture of a woman clothed, and then naked in the same position" are all "art" ideas a lot of people have before they actually know what art is.  They seem really edgy and clever.  They aren't.  They are the art photography equivalent of putting a bird on it.

None of these projects will result in images that have any place in a working model's portfolio.  I don't give a crap about my "real self", I need images my agents will accept, to send to clients, who will pay me to pretend to do this or that.

I had a lady on here wanting me to TF for her online clothing store.
Using my studio, shooting over a dozen models, with hundreds of variations, then retouching the entire shoot to her spec's.
Lol the funniest part about it was that she seemed offended when I asked for a minimal rate on the project.
Some people must be on drugs or something.

And sadly, someone else probally took her offer of nothing.

Well, it might be weird to you but not weird to others.  Very feel people would face their true self and willing to document what they really look like.  I know a lot of people won't go outside with out makeup. 

  if you really looking for agency type of images:

1.  Plain back ground.
2.  No heavy makeup, no red lips, etc.
3.  Show swimsuit, lingerie, but no distraction background.
4.  They prefer plain looking type where it truly show you and not what you would look like ridding horse, playing in the field with some fantasy land etc.
5.  Forget about any creative type of images.  Those has no use for agencies.

I have done photos for agencies but those images look plain and boring.  But that is what the agencies want.  They prefer images that shows you, not the type of images that you think you want.  As a matter of fact, some even prefer polariod type of images.

Really depends on the agency to be honest. I've done some of my most creative High Fashion work purely for agency/editorial submission.

I think self portraits every day for a week should be left to the tumblr generation.

I don't think they are weird ideas, I'm telling you they are bad, cliched ideas.

No.  I am a full time, published commercial print model with commercial agencies and those are not the kind of images my agencies want.  They want lifestyle: happy consumer, young mom, business woman, healthy living.  Playing in a field is pretty much *exactly* what my agencies want.  But thanks for the bad advice.

Strangely, the worst idea from a photographer was one I did to humor him. We were in the middle of doing a shoot (which looked great, btw) and he said "Wait! We should do this look I thought up!"

He bought this EXTREMELY tacky bright colored fedora with mis-matched clothing-equally as bright. Looking back, I'm not sure what the hell he saw in this idea because he has great taste. I did it, he took the pictures...for some reason he liked the pictures and wondered why I didn't.

Timothy Greenfield-Sanders has a good project that is basically that, but with porn stars, http://thinkingxxx.com/  He did a great job with it though, using a huge view camera, working methodically, etc. I think a lot of people who try to copy it are a lot less talented though.

I was just looking through old journal entries and remembered this one.  It wasn't pitched to me personally, but I stumbled across a casting for it.

It was a casting for women who suffered from anorexia for some kind of fantasy project (not related to educating on ED or anything).

The compensation?  *Meals.*

Yeah.

For commercial, I can see they want jumpy happy, out door images.  As I said before, some people are comfortable going out without makeup while others will not go out without makeup on.    Some people like fantasy type of images while others hated it. 

  What is bad idea for one person might not be bad for others.  Some of the very creative images comes from ideas that most people usually don't think about.  Some are creative thinkers while others are followers..  The followers will never go out of the comfort zone where as the creative thinker will go out their comfort zone.

Two ideas have been pitched at me that I absolutely would not consider, they both involved the same dress. This one:
http://photos.modelmayhem.com/photos/100421/17/4bcf9a26d5dfd_m.jpg
When I purchased the dress at a vintage store it was so tiny it would not zip over the dress form it was hanging on, but fit me perfectly. The woman told me it was late 40's/early 50's. It has a lot of lace (also at the hem which you cannot see) and somewhat of a train.

Concept one was from a photographer who was a problem from moment one. He would not give me any concepts at first. Then mentioned goth and some MUA he knew who then became unavailable because she got addicted to cough syrup or something similar. Then he got mad because I did not respond to his messages on Thanksgiving. Finally, he angrily told me his apparently secret concept: I would be in an old bathtub with water and green apples, wearing my dress and a pair of much too large old, dirty combat boots. I declined, mainly because the way he described the concept came off as very cheesy and because I really would rather not expose that dress to a dirty bathtub or wear something something so pretty with combat boots that were both too large and beat up and dirty. You can do some pretty with ugly concepts and they work, but that just sounded like a mess.

Concept two was more recently and the photographer wanted to do a trash the dress. Obviously I declined that. If it had been a cheap, modern dress I got of Craigslist or something, maybe, but not a vintage dress. I think she had failed to really look at my port or did not realize the dress was vintage, maybe.

I am surprised someone would suggest to trash your dress. If they want to do it, shouldn't they provide a dress?

I posted a cast call like this recently (bad me). However, as I thought about it more, exactly the things you pointed out came to mind and it stopped making sense. So I modified it to be a working day. Still no taker.

Some ideas maybe ok, but probably needs some more thoughts to be developed. Even a working day is kind of hard, because I don't want sitting there and wait for you do someone's hair for 3 hours. But I leave the cast call there, just so I can think about it from time to time.

But I contend, that capturing someone in their "normal" state in a more journalistic way has it own appeal. That's why some of the news photos trigger so much emotion, precisely because it is real. On the other hand, any such attempt could end up like a reality show.

We sort of agree.  The problem is when someone *thinks* they have had an idea that most people usually don't think about, when in fact a lot of people have thought about it and executed it before.  If they are willing to rethink it and approach it from a new direction, then the project has merit.  But in most cases they are either not willing, or unable, because too many people are not the creative thinkers they think they are.

I'm not sure why you keep bringing up make-up, but for the record I don't wear it on a daily basis: only when an MUA applies it to me or I'm attending an event.
