The models get the holiday - the photographers get the images and pay for the whole thing.

This casting is open to all female models offering artistic nude or higher levels, and all photographers looking for a great photographic holiday.

My daughter and son in law own a small 37 acre farm in Central France just north of the Haute-Vienne / Dordogne border comprising a three acre lake, covered in lily pads throughout the summer, four acres of woodland and the rest is open fields. There are two horses with stable, two donkeys, sheep, a few goats, geese and ducks, plus a rather cantankerous peacock.
 
 




[Photograph taken March 2008]

There is extensive secluded woodland and a number of other small lakes in the surrounding area, nearby is the historic city of Limoges, the world centre of the circus industry at Nexon and numerous public lakes with relatively secluded bathing.  Topless bathing is fine at all of them.  The ancient historic towns of Rocamadour and Brantome are an easy drive away.
 
 
 
Accommodation will be half board in local hotels and my daughter and son-in-law will provide light lunches for those around the farm at that time of day, plus a constant supply of tea and coffee.  Alternatively camper-vans and caravans may stay on site for a modest fee, however please note that there is a 4,500 Kg weight limit on the causeway approaching the house.
 
What is asked of the models is two and half hours shooting in the morning and two and half hours shooting in the late afternoon from Sunday through to Friday.  The rest of the time is their own.
 
We are proposing two one-week breaks, one in early July and one in early September.
 
We are hoping also to have a number of local models there to swell the numbers.  I am a member of the French model/tog site Book Foto.
 
Go to http://maps.google.co.uk and type in Nexon, France.  Zoom in just twice and you will see the word Valette near the bottom of the screen.  The lake at the farm is the small very dark green tear-drop shaped patch to the left of the word Valette.  Re-centre on that lake to zoom in closer.
 
What we are trying to arrange is that the photographers attending will provide transport for the models to keep costs down, (a car for photographers at least is an absolute essential), and that the photographers will pay for the models' accommodation and the costs incurred by my daughter and son-in-law.  You will be welcome to bring a partner, but you will also have to pay for that partner's accommodation and food and any additional transport costs.  If you want to bring the whole family then again you will be responsible for your family's food and accommodation costs.
 
IMPORTANT: the number of photographers attending will determine the cost, so we will calculate the cost per photographer when we have a clearer idea of numbers.  We accept that that may result in one or two drop outs.
 
As most hotels in this area are small, we can't guarantee to get everyone in one hotel, especially in July, but will do our best to get as many together as possible.
 
My daughter is fluently bilingual.  I speak very good French but, I'll admit, not as good as she does.
 
There will be a one-to-one photographer to UK model working ratio, and photographers will work with twelve different models over the course of the week, and vice-versa.
 
Models' stated levels will be respected at all times.
 
At the moment this is very much a case of gauging interest and the exact dates are not yet set in stone.
 
To prevent drop-outs models will be required to lodge a £100 deposit with us, which will be refunded to use as spending money in Euros on arrival.
 
Photographers will be required to pay a deposit of £100 on firm booking (non-refundable if you drop out less than four weeks before the week you are attending), and the balance four weeks prior to departure.
 
So please send me an email stating
  • your preference  for arriving July 2, July 9, September 3 or September 10;
  • whether you will come alone or bring a partner or the family;
  • confirming your willingness to travel with someone you may never have met before.
