I am looking to work with several women over the next year on a creative personal project. The project will consist of portraits of the women throughout the year. The intent is to capture the subject in a documentary style in their home environment; it will not be a posed portrait/ boudoir session which is the main body of work on my website currently.
If you are interested in working with me on this project, please submit an application (see below). There will be no monetary compensation, but subjects will receive digital copies of final images for their own use. I welcome everyone over the age of 20 who lives in Vernon and surrounding area to apply. Preference will be given to women who I have not met previously.
I will work with the subjects individually over a period of about 12 months to document a small portion of their lives in their homes. Subjects will be asked to make time for me to visit their home to photograph them 2-4 times over the period of the project. I will be asking personal intimate questions to determine how to best represent subjects in the images.
Wardrobe/ makeup will be decided individually as the project takes shape. I expect to be photographing the subjects with minimal makeup in clothing that they would normally wear at home, in various degrees of undress, depending on the comfort level of the subject.
Images will be displayed online and/or in print. The photographer will choose which images will be included in the final project.
The final project may include a write up sharing the personal experience of the subject. If I decide it would make the project stronger to include this information, I will obtain permission. I anticipate that I will include vague information about the group of subjects within the project, but will not identify them directly.
Subjects will be required to sign a contract and model release.
To be eligible to apply you must be over the age of 20 and reside in Vernon, BC, and surrounding area.
