Jivago Photographic – Paid Casting(s) 2013/14

Once again at the beginning of a new year, Jivago photographic is seeking expressions of interest from a model(s), in relation to a series of shoots in 2013/14. This casting is being sent directly to a range of models and may also be posted on PURESTORM, RAM and ONE MODEL PLACE. Dates are currently flexible and will be fixed later, according to mutual availability. The model does not have to commit to the whole series - i.e. one shoot at a time. Further details below.

Please reply with expressions of interest, after reading all of this casting and all of my profile notes, quoting the last two words on my profile.

Any replies that indicate, that these have not been read and/or omitting the specific reassurances (see below) will be ignored:- Sorry! :)

Dates:- Flexible – See Below. To be clear there is some flexibility on dates and these can be fixed later, according to mutual availability.

Schedule for Each Shoot:- 10 hours shooting scheduled over 3-4 days.

Levels:- Up to fine art nude shot in landscape.

Pay: - These are paid shoots. Competitive rates of pay will be offered. The fee will depend upon the model, her specific experience in fine art nude shooting and the basis upon which she is working with other photographers - And on other factors. An offer will be made to suitable models, following expressions of interest.

Previous Work:- Go

This site is how my online work is best viewed. Hover your mouse over a shot at top left and click ‘Dim the Lights’.

Model Specification: - Size 8-10 (12 maximum and only if she is tall). In all cases:- Healthily slim, toned and ideally athletic, flat stomach, Height 5-3 to 5-10, Statistics 32-36, 23-26, 32-36 (all approximate for guidance only!), ideally with long hair and natural. 25 to 35 years old (approximate for guidance only!).

Tattoos and any piercing should be to the minimum and discreet.

Profiles shots must be representative and up to date.

An actual background in the arts and artistic inclinations of her own is a significant bonus.

Freedom to Undertake Longer Shoots:-

These Highland shoots are something of an ‘expedition’ The model would ideally be independent and certainly without ties or commitments, that would restrict or interfere with participation in extended shoots in the Scottish Highlands or overseas. After a number of unreliability issues and interference from 'insecure' partners, I am now seeking clear definite reassurance on this aspect. (I really don't want this to happen again!!). These shoots frequently exceed £1500 in total cost and they represent my time away from my main profession and also from a business that I run – I trust that you will understand – Thank you).

If this reassurance is not addressed within your reply, it will be ignored:- Sorry :)

Expenses:- All travel (usually airplane) accommodation and subsistence is also paid for.

Dates:- Flexible: - Mid May/Mid June/Mid July – And into 2014.

Locations: - Beautiful and dramatic locations within the Scottish Highlands and overseas. Beinn Eighe, Torridon, The Outer Hebrides and Glen Coe.

References: - Many superb references. See my profile on PURESTORM:-

In addition many further references will be provided through my website and I will put you in direct contact with former models.

Formal Business Arrangements: - All my shoots are predicated on a formal contract and a comprehensive written briefing for the models. The contract protects the interests of both sides equally. The contract is intended to 'filter out' and deter models who cannot organise or commit - And who may therefore 'No Show'.

Prompt Communication: - Essential.

I look forward to any suitable replies. :)
