I have been overwhelmed by the responses coming in from my 'Real Woman' model search. I originally thought of only having 5 models, something small and intimate...but there have been well over 15 women who are incredibly interested and eager to help me expand my portfolio and branch out as a photographer.
Therefore, I have decided that this *might* just have to be a whole weekend thing to get women who can, together on specific days...so everyone who wants to can participate.
The 'Real Woman Model Search' is going on the whole month of April, and up to 10 females will be chosen, by May 1st. The winners will be pampered with hair & makeup, wine and snacks, and the opportunity to have photographs taken of them that represents what a real woman looks like! We will be on location at Manito Park, where I will take photos of each woman individually in different settings. Each model will be featured in an online gallery, as well as on Facebook and my blog. Each woman will also receive up to 5 retouched photos for themselves, and the opportunity to purchase larger prints, if interested.
This is a huge opportunity both for me and for the potential models! These sessions will be absolutely FREE and should be a lot of fun. I cannot wait for more details to come soon!! If you are interested, or know someone that is, please either email me or leave a comment on this blog and I will get back to everyone with more details as they come in.
