This is a casting call for adult females (therefore at least 18 and above, though I would ideally prefer people aged 20 and above if possible) to be involved with individual photoshoots, to pose in outdoor locations in the Peterborough area. It runs parallel with a current casting call of mine, but with a few twists.
I'm aiming to provide a fun experience for the model, so if you like fun, and find the descrription intriguing, please think about this! Maybe you are an individual who wishes to get started in the world of posing and modelling but doesn't know where to begin without spending a lot of money. Maybe you want to build your own portfolio up. Maybe you lack self confidence within and hope to challenge your perceptions of yourself. Whatever your motivation or reason, please consider me! :)
--ABOUT THE PHOTOSHOOT
The photoshoot would comprise of two parts.
The first part is a standard series of poses and portraiture shots, but without the cheesy "say cheese!" snaps that many people seem to take. Head and shoulder shots, full body length. Wearing clothes that you'd wear in a casual environment, office, or evening out.
The second part is something that admittedly is fairly new to me - to take more "daring" photographs to try and draw various emotions and questions from the viewer. Shots that immediately grab the viewers attention. Therefore these more "daring" photographs would be taken at interesting angles, maybe wearing more revealing attire. The model would pose to provoke such emotions and questions, while wearing ideal clothing and accessories.
Examples of what I mean, but certainly not exclusively limited to, in terms of emotion, are:
- tearstained makeup shots, as if someone has been crying
- isolated or derelict areas, with the model portraying a grimy appearance
- a drenched model, looking cold, lost and lonely. I've tried this before with a StarNow model and would love to explore this further
Examples of what I mean, but not limited to, in terms of grabbing the viewers attention (and I hope this doesn't come across as sexualisation, that's not what I'm trying to do) but they would be slightly suggestive.
- Shots which show cleavage. Eg, maybe wearing a shirt with the first few buttons undone.
- Shots which show the thighs and upper legs, but nothing beyond. Eg, maybe wearing short shorts or skirts, maybe hitched up to show the thigh. Nothing more.
- Shots in "teasing" poses, maybe blowing a kiss/pouting at the camera, hands on chest, that kind of thing.
My personal goal is to build up a portfolio to present to prospective employers, but also to try and make people feel good about themselves and see their true beauty. A lot of people don't realise how beautiful they are, and I hope to change that. I hope to encourage anybody who feels uncomfortable to open up their feelings and see the true beauty their body beholds. At the same time I want my photographs to be interesting and unconventional.
I don't judge on size or age, unlike many photographers who only want youthful stick-thin models. You'll find that I have a charismatic, almost child-like personality, despite me being 28 years old! Ive also done a few photoshoots through StarNow, as well as a couple of corporate and charity events (please see my profile). I still consider myself to be an amateur and haven't done it for too long, so if you apply please bear this in mind.
If you have any questions, please message me, or if you're interested and feel this would be fun, please apply! :)
PLEASE NOTE: I am an amateur photographer! Not a professional! I don't take life too seriously so if you want a professional approach I would suggest you try elsewhere.
