Artist's Statement

"I'm a cinematographer and camera operator who is shooting a personal stills project in hopes of having a gallery opening. I'm looking for a female model or non-model (no experience required), any age 21-100 for a fine art photography series that is shooting in Silverlake between now and the 26th. Model should be what some might consider very, very thin to fit the set of photos being created. I will only need you for two hours one of those days. It will be shot in a small black room set, with very moody, soft lighting.

All the photos in the series are nudes, but this is an art project. All the poses will be very non-sexual and in most them, the crotch will be in shadow or blocked. Since this is just a personal project, it's all out of pocket, so I can only pay $50- but I can promise it will be fun, easy, and provide you with some cool and unique images.

It's not a requirement to be experienced in front of the camera, but do need to be comfortable being fully nude, and I will work with you when we are shooting and finding poses. Nothing too complicated, no dexterity needed.

The idea behind the series comes from the metaphor of a common river that runs through all people, deep below the surface, that represents our darker side. The parts of us that are rebellious, angry, or just in a word: different. The idea is that when we tap into this river and put that on display for others, they will respond because they have the same water running through them, even if they have kept it way below the surface.
A little heady and overly poetic, I know- but that’s the thought process that started the project. Although these are nude photos, I don’t want to poses to be sexual at all. I’d rather show a body in a stranger way, slightly contoured, or just off in some way. In addition to that, several poses that are just 'neutral,' and more of a 'this is just how I am, take it or leave it' type thing. The lighting is very soft and top-y, and flows over the body in a very pretty/soothing way. You can see some test images at
