Seeking Dallas/Fort Worth local female models for a project utilizing 19th century wet plate photography process to shoot fine art nudes and implied nudes on metal (Tintype) and glass (Ambrotype) plates. Will consider all who apply. I am located in Grand Prairie, which is where the shoots will be held. **Out of state models welcome, but must travel here at their own expense.
The purpose of this project is to work out technical issues in the process, test new equipment, chemicals, and lighting, and build a portfolio. Due to this, the compensation will be on a TF basis, unless otherwise agreed.
All participating models will receive watermarked digital scans of all the plates created, along with the permissions/rights to use in their portfolio(s), or as they see fit. The model will also get to choose one of the plates created to take home.
In addition to the above described nude/implied shots, all models who participate in this project will also have one standard portrait photo taken on their choice of glass or tintype.
If you are unfamiliar with wet plate photography, contact me and I will be happy to show you some completed plates and answer any questions you may have. Examples of past wet plate shoots, as well as behind-the-scenes shots, can be found in my galleries.
