BEFORE YOU APPLY
I focus on male physique/nudes. If you are concerned that others will see the images, or if you are concerned how and where your images are used, there is no need to contact me. Once you sign the model release, there is no turning back. NO EXCEPTIONS.
ALL models must be 18 years of age or older and provide a government-issued ID with a valid birth date at the time of the shoot.
I am looking for athletic, well-defined models with trim to muscular physiques. Take a look at the models on this website to see some examples. I prefer to work with models between the ages of 18 and 35.
Naturally tan skin is fine; however, I DO NOT shoot models that use tanning beds, spray tans or bronzers (artifical tans never look right in photos). If you have an artificial tan, you will need to stop tanning at least two weeks prior to the shoot. You should apply a good-quality moisturizer on the day of the shoot (especially on the elbows and knees). Body hair can be natural, trimmed or waxed. I do not recommend shaving your body hair, as this can cause razor stubble and redness (which is very time consuming for me to edit). Don't forget to trim your fingernails, toenails and nose hair before the shoot.
I require models to sign a release on the day of the shoot. You will also need to provide a government-issued ID for me to copy for my records. This needs to occur at the beginning of the shoot.
USAGE & COPYRIGHT
Images are primarily intended for my website and social media; however, to help cover my costs I am trying to find different ways to earn money from my work. Models that receive financial compensation will receive six (6) retouched, watermarked images of my choosing for self promotion. All other models will be able to select the images that they would like me to retouch from contact sheets. I reserve the right to limit the total number of images based on the success of the shoot (10 images minimum). These images will also contain my watermark. I own full copyright to the images, no exceptions.
