“I wanted to thank you for making me feel beautiful and giving me the confidence that has helped me become who I am today!” — Leslie, a young model that I helped to launch her career.
When I’m testing cameras, lenses and especially lighting equipment, I need models to pose for these photographs. With repairs to my home studio finally complete, I will be doing more and more studio shoots and will be needing new models.
If you have a friend (or maybe even yourself) who would like to be a model, the best way contact me is to use the Contact page or send me an e-mail at joefarace at gmail dot com. This is followed up with an interview at a convenient Starbucks so the model can meet with me and discuss details of how the shoots work and answer any questions she might have.
I like to work with women of all ages (21-55,) sizes and ethnicities. No experience is necessary. For shoots for blogs as well for publication in photography magazines, models will be paid to pose for photographs similar to what’s shown on this blog that will be used to illustrate how-to stories about using cameras, lenses and lighting systems to demonstrate how the equipment works.
I am especially interested in finding a new Muse. A muse is defined as a “woman, or a force personified as a woman, who is the source of inspiration for a creative artist.” You can read about my former muse, Tia Stoneman, here and here.
Photo shoots typically run two hours and are scheduled during the day Monday through Saturday at my studio near Parker, Colorado. Assignments for print media are paid an hourly rate based on the model’s experience. Trade (TFP) shoots include money for gas and the model receives a CD containing all images from the shoot.
