Casting for Families to Photograph (Sellwood)

I'm a commercial and wedding photographer in West Moreland, looking for a few families to photograph in the area. The shoot will be an upbeat, lifestyle shoot in the neighborhood. I'm looking for fun shots of everyone interacting and having a good time, kicking back. The images will be for my stock portfolio and I'll ask for a signed model release. In return you'll get some fantastic photos of your family and have a great time shooting.

We're looking to shoot this Friday afternoon or next week Tuesday evening.


Reply to:  All are welcome to submit, though at this time I'm not looking for newborns (it's best if everyone can walk on their own). Please email a recent picture, availability, and your ages to to be considered. Also, if you have a great backyard space or other cool options for background or props, let me know! Thanks!

How much would you pay for a painting? Would it matter who the painter was?

Winner of the Moliere Award for Best Author, the 1998 Tony Award for Best Play and the 1996 Olivier Award for Best Comedy.


Serge (35-45 yrs.) Any Ethnicity. He is a sophisticated, divorced dermatologist, steeped in modernity, who cannot fully appreciate his cultured lifestyle unless it is validated by his close friends.
Yvan (30s - early 40s) Any Ethnicity. He is the youngest of the trio, both chronologically and psychologically. A lifetime of yo-yoing between decisions and kowtowing to his friends and family is beginning to take an emotional toll on him.  Wrestles with weight issues. Chunky build.

I am in need of a gaffer (with their own lighting equipment) for a one day/12 hour film shoot sometime the second week of August. This is a paid position and we can negotiate the payment via email. The project is a promotional film shoot for a TV pilot episode I'd like to have fully funded and filmed summer 2013. The footage filmed will be used to show networks and possible funders what the show will feel/look like. Potentially, this could lead to more work and money!
