We finally hit our fundraising goal! Now, I'm on the hunt for the perfect photographer to help us get pictures of hands & feet for the new tool. Although I have a starter list of photographers I'm calling, if you know someone who would be a perfect fit for this job, please link them here so they can get in touch with me! I'm hoping to interview as many photographers as possible to make sure we get the one best suited to us. Looking forward to meeting your favorite Portland photographers!
This project requires pictures of hands and feet, from "models" (although we want regular hands and feet, not "pretty fashion model" hands and feet) of many ages and ethnicities, and both genders. These photos will eventually be used as reference resources for artists, in tools similar to the one visible here: https://line-of-action.com/practice-tools/figure-drawing/
The emphasis will be on adults and young adults, but having at least one child and one elder in the mix would be ideal. We're currently looking at somewhere between 8 and 15 models, depending on time, availability and cost. There are no specifics as of yet as to which ethnicities -- we'd just like to see a healthy range represented.
We would like these photographs to be done in a studio with lighting that makes clear the depth of the hands and feet so that they can be properly studied. We'd like to get between 20 to 100 shots of each model, with their hands and feet in different poses, running the models through the session one after another in a single day.
Please answer the following questions in your bid:
- Do you have a studio available for the shoot?
- Where are you located?
- What would you charge for your time?
- What would your price be per picture, or would it be a flat payment for time and labor?
- Do you have a relationship with a modeling agency? If so, what would it cost to have you handle lining up a diverse range of models for the day?
I look forward to working with you!
If you are a photographer based in Portland, OR and can help us with the above project, please send a bid to firstname.lastname@example.org.
