Model Call for Tokyo & Yokohama for summer themed shoot

Updated: 2nd Aug.

Wanted:

  1. (found) Models. Men, women, young, old, whatever.
  2. URGENTLY need a Makeup artist (do makeup, create a look suitable for scenes, assist the model, and some help with flashes)

Theme: Japanese summer. Shoot 1 “At home”,  Shoot 2 “Girl in Tokyo”, Shoot 3 “At the beach”.

When: all day, 8th August 2017.

Where: This is only open to models & MUA already in Japan.

Shoot 1, Indoors, 8th Aug: At a traditional style Japanese house, near central Yokahama.

Shoot 2, Street, 4th Aug: Will be a street shoot around Akihabara. (cancelled)

Shoot 3, Beach, 7th or 8th Aug: May be (depending on budget):    (cancelled)

 



Shadows.

 

Why: 1. Actually, I’m not normally available to shoot in summer in Japan, and so I have this big gap in my photo library. Also, I really don’t know what to shoot, and so I need some practice and a chance to experiment with a summer theme. 2. Some of these will be sample-photos to call for sponsors for future shoots. 3. Product placement shoot (if sponsors can be found in time).

Paid: For the right model & mua, yes I will pay.

What to wear: Summer fashion themes. Strictly, no brand names, no logos, and no copyrighted designs. This will be a low-budget shoot, and so you will need to use your own wardrobe.

Shoot 1: Normal comfortable clothing (not old unfashionable things)

Shoot 2: Something that looks good, but can still look nice in 10 years.

Shoot 3: Swimsuit(s), beach/summer shawl, hat, sunglasses, flip-flops, towel. (You will need to get into the water).

If you have another idea, please tell me.

Other: A model release needs to be signed, and you cannot have exclusive contract restrictions for too many products.

More info: My standard model call (en) and モデル求人, 日本語 (jp), contact me and I can send the draft shoot plan.

Wanted: Models. Men, women, young, old, whatever.

Theme: Japanese summer.

When: Summer (Any time now to mid-September), but contact me as soon as possible, so I can fix my schedule.

Where: Mostly Nagoya (Sakae, Shin-Sakae, Higashiyama Botanic Gardens, Tsurumai Park, or even Shin-Maiko on the Meitetsu Line), but I may also do a trip to Tokyo and Kyoto. For travelling models, look at my Nagoya, Kyoto, and Tokyo pages for ideas.

Why: Actually, I’m not normally available to shoot in summer in Japan, and so I have this big gap in my portfolio. Also, I really don’t know what to shoot, and so I need some practice and a chance to experiment with a summer theme.

Paid: For the right model, yes I can pay. Otherwise, TFP (Trade for photos), which is perfect for models wanting their first photos for their portfolios, for professional models wanting shots for their Instagram feed, and creative models & MUA wanting help on a project.

What: I’d prefer to show typical Japanese summer themes like fireworks, festivals, but also water and sea. However, I’d be happy to hear your ideas and creatively plan a shoot together.

What to wear: Depends on the theme and creative style we can plan. If a summer festival, then a yukata would be great. If in the city, then summer fashion themes. If you have another idea, please tell me.

More info: My standard model call (en) and モデル求人, 日本語 (jp).

#ModelShoot Japanese in business suit

Models: I need basic portraits of Japanese men and women in regular business suits (dark and light coloured suits are fine).
Make-up artist: Provide a normal but photogenic look (schedule depends on the models availability).

When: any time before 30th November 2015.
Where: Anywhere major city in the Tokai area (like Nagoya, Gifu, Yokkaichi), or Osaka and Kyoto.
Where: Firstly, simple street shoot in places like Sakae, Shin Sakae, Meieki, or Namba and Yodoyabashi (Osaka). I’m sorry, I cannot fly you into Japan for this shoot.
How much: ¥5,000 for two hours (not USD$)
How long: Depends, but possibly additional follow up work may be available. I do like to work with the same people and people I know.
Who: Preferably Japanese ethnicity. I have never demanded this before, but photo buys to specify things like this, and I must guarantee that my images meet their exact requirements (event location details must be accurately reported for most cases). So, if you are not Japanese, I’m sorry; however, I would still like to work with you on other projects.
What: Business suit, young working professional. Most likely it will be a street shoot. This is a low-budget shoot, so please wear your own suit. If requested, I can supply a make-up artist (if one is available on the day of the shoot).
Why: I get requests for photos of professionals in Japan, and this is a gap in my photo library.

Contact me for more details. This was also posted at: http://www.modelmayhem.com/casting/2242272. Please share this page with people who might be interested.
