In my Photographic Resolutions post at the beginning of the year, I listed a number of things I wanted to accomplish photographically speaking by the end of the year, and one of them involved a photoshoot with a hired model, and I’m happy to say that item is close to being checked off, as I have hired a model for a shoot for next week.
This shoot is for a new photo project that involves portraits with vintage analog cameras (both for picture taking and prop!) As the project progresses the images will be posted here.
In the modelling world, there is a term “Guy With Camera” or GWC for short, referring to a creepy man who uses the pretext of a photo shoot to attempt to engage in a certain other kind of activity with the model. This is a real concern for many models, especially when they are working with a photographer for the first time. I am tempted to call this series “Girl With Camera,” but I’m not sure I will; it might make light of a serious problem in the industry.
Update: If you are female and would like to participate in this series just let me know; no nudity etc. required!
