Models Needed

It's time to start winding up some of my summer shoots, and I could always use a few new faces in my projects.

These are the projects I'm working on presently, some of which were in my last blog post, but my RSS feed was jacked up, so it didn't get distributed properly, etc, etc, etc... here's what I'm up to:

A "studio" project, featuring figure studies which are composed in a shallow pool of tinted water.  The result are high contrast images that are naturally abstracted.  This series will be shot on medium format film. 

Bear Naked
Classic environmental figure studies shot in and around the Sleeping Bear Dunes National Lakeshore.  This series will be the topic of my next major exhibition as well as a book.  This is a project that I've been working on for about three years already.  Settings will be within the dunes, woods, historic ruins in the lakeshore, and various lakes and rivers in the area. 

The Black Box
So I have a thing for constructing large, complicated and totally immobile sets (see "caged", case in point).  This set is a permanent fixture in my studio, and will likely be an ongoing project.  I'm interested in shooting all body types and skin tones for this project, but have a particular interest in models with darker skin tones, or very pale skin tones for this series.  But I'm flexible, of course...

In other news -

The Traverse City Art Center needs more entries for their "Of the Earth" juried exhibition.  The entry deadline is Saturday, May 30th, which has been extended over the original deadline.  Prospectus can be found here:

That's all for now!
