I am opening a casting call for male actors/ models for recurring photo shoots in 2017. I have a very general sense of what I am looking for in terms of look, so the submission invitation is open.
I shoot conceptual/surreal/fine art photography. It begins with a collaboration between me and a model, usually only one at a time. It is all shot on a blank stage, so creative thinking, imagination and improvisation is crucial. I tend to seek actors because I am aiming to create a sense of a scene, and don't want the "model look" in the imagery.
I work with some props, but mainly it is character driven and I build imagery and concepts from the raw shots we create.
I tend to seek male models for two reasons:
The field of FIne Art Photography is saturated with female imagery and I want to stand out.
I am a male, and the actor/model is substituting for me, a figure to represent my thoughts and ideas.
There is no particular type I am searching for at this time - I would love to get some submissions for consideration for future work as well, but some things I am not keen on would be:
A large amount of visible tattoos.
Very modern or trendy hairstyles.
I tend to look for timeless style - a haircut that does not pull attention from the face, a natural look, physically average/fit but nothing overtly muscular or heavy either. Height is open - anything from 5'5" to 6'2''. Ethnicities are not a concern - all are welcome. I tend to costume the models in suits (again, attempting to be timeless) and hats, but that is not set in stone.
The best way to get a sense of what I am looking for is to look through my portfolio: please follow the link.
If you can imagine yourself in the work, if you want to be in it, please consider submitting.
I shoot about 6 sessions per year, hopefully more, and am currently submitting for gallery shows and exhibits.
Please tell me a little about you, and provide a couple shots so I get a sense of what you look like.
