Part 1: Model call; Part 2: Assistant needed
Part 1, Model Call
Who: Women, preferably expats or travelling models visiting Japan. Basic English skills will help.
What: Summer themed clothing & fashion shoot, including swimwear
When: TBC (probably 31st May, 6th, 13th, or 20th June), and again in July and/or August.
Where: Possibly Utsumi Beach (Aichi) https://goo.gl/maps/eTx9hwq7A4F2, or similar place. If the model is based in another city like Tokyo, Osaka, or other, we may meet near there instead.
Transport: Public transport will be reimbursed (paid back, please keep receipts or photos of tickets)
Benefits: Usually ¥2,500/hour (depending on model) for four or five hours, transport time not included. Plus receive at least five key photos from the shoot. Model may keep the clothing for social media promotion purposes. More information about social media product placement and brand promotion provided when you contact me.
Collaboration projects, you of course won’t get paid, unless we can make sales. I’m considering 1. An Instagram project (portraits in the city), and 2. making a photo book and calendar. Let me know if you’re interested, or if you have your own idea.
MUST: Provide information about your clothing sizes as soon as possible, including type of mobile phone you have (especially if you have an iPhone or Samsung). Have own medical insurance.
Generally modelling information: Here.
Contact: Please contact me as soon as possible.
