Modelling Casting Calls
I'm a professional freelance photographer who gets paid by taking photographs of my clients. My portfolio speaks for everything. However, as an artist, I would like to create more beautiful work whenever I'm available, apart from having to do more marketing in order for more people to know about my work. Therefore, I do TFCD / test shoots with suitable models who can help me to accomplish some themes that I'm interested in.
This is an opportunity for models who wish to build up their portfolios with quality work to showcase to their potential clients.
What models can gain from doing the shoots with me are the quality of photographs as seen inside my portfolio. The rules and details are inside my TFCD shoot page and thus please read them before contacting me.
I have included a reference album (partially related) out of my existing work for some of the themes, however, they are definitely not the best examples (I can't google and upload other people's work). Moreover, some of my ideas are simply thought out of the box. I do not list the full details for each theme in case people steal my ideas and do them before I'm able to work on them.
The model should be open-minded and also provide the outfit(s), unless indicated.
Apart from the themes/concepts below, I'm also looking for models who are daring enough for me to take photographs for educational purpose by creating more tips for others. For examples, I will be uploading before and after (photoshop) photographs side by side to demonstrate what is professional editing, and I also need to demonstrate errors of both fashion and photography etc. Of course, during the shoot, I will be taking some good photographs to reward the models.
Bikini shoot in studio
So far, my bikini shoots have been done at the beach or by the pool and in my usual lifestyle shooting style. I'm looking at doing a more model-pose shoot with plain background at indoor so as to expand my portfolio to attract new clients (models who wish to create a full set of professional portfolio) and to showcase result from shooting indoor. Preferably a model with some experience.

Elegant bikini in the beach
Probably something like the usual stylish modelling poses at the beach but I'm going to show others that I can do it more tastefully. Yes, someone with modelling experience or aura will be more preferred as well.

I have done quite a few bikini shoots but not many swimsuit shoots. Therefore, I'm open to ideas. No experience required.

A good housewife knows how to lock her husband's heart by cooking good food. The model doesn't need to really know how to cook. Perhaps, a hot lady in apron by the oven.
