I am based out of state, so coordinating schedules will be critical. Typically, there will be no rescheduled shoots if you miss your shoot. However, please do let me know if you are unable to shoot, as there are usually other models who are ready to book on short notice. I typically confirm one day before, and one hour before each shoot.
I travel to New York from time to time for photo shoots with models. I’ve done shoots on rooftops, Central Park, lofts, skyline views, and in apartments. Shoots typically take place in Manhattan or Brooklyn, but some are nearby in New Jersey.
These are paid art modeling photo shoots for publication. A small, select portion of the images will be marketed through major international art dealers such as SaatchiArt and Zatista. The photographs will be used for my artwork and photography books, which is how I support myself full time. I am seeking models that are art-minded and not necessarily career-oriented. If you think you qualify for this casting as a nude model in NYC.
You will have access to proof images for self-improvement purposes. Some images will be provided for your modeling portfolio. Critique, feedback, and coaching is available on request after the shoot.
