CREATING, SEEKING, & OFFERING:
* I am currently creating high-contrast, colorful, sunset silhouette photoart pieces, to sell large-format prints in art galleries/shows. See Examples
* I am seeking 3 to 5 people who are punctual, spunky, flexible, fit, have a great attitude, easy to work with, and have as much positive & creative energy as I do! Backgrounds in yoga, martial arts, dance, contortion, or other visual entertainment that can be captured as a sunset silhouette is obviously a plus, but it's not required. I'll consider everyone, and all of your concepts/ideas.
* I am offering you my 30-minute photoshoot package for each sunset we capture together, so you can add whatever you'd like to your portfolio; Headshots, Full-Body, any outfits you're missing, or updating your new look/hairstyle. Each sunset is about an hour, and the 30-minute shoot is to be done that same day, on location, right before our sunset shoot starts. You can see examples of Recent Headshots here, or see below.
* Shooting location options include the beaches of either Point Dume in Malibu, Santa Monica Beach (on the sand, aligned with Arizona Ave), or Manhattan Beach (on the sand, aligned with 17th Street).
* I am available for shooting during weekday sunsets (Mon-Fri) in Malibu/Santa Monica, and during weekend sunsets (Fri-Sun) in Santa Monica/Manhattan Beach.
* We will arrive on location 2 hours before sunset. That gives us time for your 30 minute shoot, and then to prepare for an hour of sunset photos.
* You'll get at least 4 well-finished/touched up images from our 30 minute photoshoot segment (color and black/white versions), no limit on wardrobe changes as long as time allows. You'll get these finished images emailed to you within 2 business days, so you can use them. (Monday-Friday are my business days. A Friday evening shoot means you get finished images by Tuesday night.)
* I have a modeling release form, so we both know what to expect going forward, which (1) makes me the owner of photos, and gives me right to edit, finish, and sell the photos as I'd like, (2) states that there is no monetary compensation for participating [however you get my 30-minute photography package], (3) gives you the right to use all finished pictures from our shoot for promotional, marketing, social media, etc., as long as my thunderbolt logo remains on the image, and (4) allows for amendments or changes in the future, should we both agree to do something else.
To be considered, email me with the subject "Sunset Photoshoot" - firstname.lastname@example.org
* Your basic details,
* A link to your portfolio or attach several photos,
* What concepts/ideas you already have for the sunset silhouettes,
* What photos you'd like to take during your 30 minute shoot, and
* The best way and time to reach you.
Let's make some art together!
