Want to model for a book cover?
As a published book cover photographer I am always looking for new interesting faces to collaborate (men in particular as I don't get to work with many male models) with on TF Basis (meaning you get the edited images after to use as you wish via wetransfer).
This means I will work for free (photo-shoot and editing) and in return you will give me a bit of your time for a photo-shoot ideally in East Anglia but I'm happy to travel or even pick you up from the local train station, and as payment you will receive 15+ professional fully edited photos and also a chance to see yourself on a book cover! Generally shoots only take 2 hours or so depending on the genre we are shooting.
You don’t have to have any prior modelling experience or look like the traditional 'model', but you do need to feel comfortable in front of the camera and take direction well. Being a book cover model is more like acting, taking on a character and playing out a role. I'm there to offer assistance in feeling comfortable and giving direction.
So if you think it might be fun to potentially see yourself on book-covers around the world and at the same time get some free professional photos, then send me a few words about yourself along with a photo (feel free to add your website/instagram handle below).
I will then make sure to get back to you, when I have an idea for a creative shoot, where I feel your look might be suitable.
Please notice that TF* models must be a minimum of 18 years of age and is always required to sign a standard model release prior to the shoot. If you're under 18 I will speak to your parent/guardian first and ask them to come along to the shoot also. This happens regularly and I love meeting parents!
Hair and Make Up Artists are welcomed to apply too to work together on future covers!
