So you are actually starting to travel know and going from maybe state to state for you modeling.
Some things you need to realize though, what you get in one state (or even city) will not be what you can get in another state (or city).
If you want $100/hr for your modeling go to those places where .....
Speaking from a photographer/artist that pays most of the models he works with, this is what I look for in a model.
First, I put up casting calls all the time when I need a model, as a model you should be checking these daily, and make sure you READ it fully. Replying to a casting call t .....
Ebay Pet PeevesMost people know little about selling on ebay and think it's exactly like a retail store that you put up a price and people just buy it, That is only half of it... if you are a seller, put yourself in the buyer's shoes, Do you go to eBay to buy things at retail price or .....
See the "What's to be Expected?" section for full details of a body paint session.
What's to be Expected? A) Important! Please understand, I don't care if you are a guy or girl, there is nothing you have that I have not seen, or even care, I'm an artist trying to make the best project I can, if you are not comfortable being nude in front of a male, than body paint is not for you! B) Most of the time I like to meet the person before a shoot so that I know who I am dealing with and what project would fit best for who I am painting. Sometimes this is not possible, and that is understandable. C) Body Painting takes about 1-3 hours to do, depending on what is done. This is not a 10 min make up job and we call it good... Yes, it's definitely a patience thing. :) D) It's recommended, not required, to shave, because the paint can definitely pull body hair, but then, if you don't mind this feeling, it shouldn't be a problem. E) I'm sorry, I don't paint over underwear, the lines and shadows it creates is sorta distracting from the art. I might be alone in my opinion, however, I like smooth surfaces not a sudden String over the hip or strap over the back. F) Though, when using my studio at home, Bring someone along if you would like for the paint... I cannot speak for photographers for the actual shoot.
Travel From Salt Lake up to Idaho Falls and anywhere in between every 2 to 3 months.
Project Plans! (I'm a geek, I know)
*Arisia (A member of the Green Lantern Corp) (Female)
*Wonder Woman (Female)
*Hal Jordan (A member of the Green Landtern Corp) (Male)
*Captain America (Male)
To Be Continued...
*Guy and Girl in a Shirt and Tie. (Both Sexes)
*Would love to do a "quilt" if you will.. this would be a long body paint, but way cool
*Would love to do a "Day Glo/Dark Light Shoot" Would be more Tribal like Vs Look Like anything... but it could be cool looking.
*Full body landscape-using the one leg as a grassy hill the other as a sky type, and move up the body with various scapes mountains valleys.... I really would like to do this with two models so that one could be laying down and the other behind on their side and I could get a bigger canvas this way. but one could do as well.
*About 4 or 5 models lined up side by side, more of just an upper body (Except the two end models which would be Stone Statues)... and Paint a Rainbow across each model.
To Be Continued...
*I will be working on a "Deck of Cards" series for a while. It will consist of the Numbers 2-10 and the Jack, Queen, King and Ace... This will be an ongoing project and I will need 53 models. This will not be done all at the same time... But I will be knocking out this Project one model at a time.
