**Paid Projects**

Pin-Up Retro Style Models Needed (Portland-Pearl)

We are looking for models to appear in our latest calendar project. The concept is a vintage style of pin-up girls so we are seeking those types of models whether they are professional or amateur as we are looking for the right fit and look towards the artists concept. Keep in mind, that there are varying body type and our photographers initial concept sketches range from very slender to more of a buxom style figure. We do have great hair stylist and makeup staff to help you achieve the desired look.

We offer $125 for the initial shoot and then a fixed percentage of profit based on calendar sales. Our previous 2010 project netted each of the twelve models $2168, many of who were amateur status and two have already secured their spot on this project. A bonus of $250 if you are selected as the cover and an increased percentage of profit sharing. As noted in the title, this concept is likely a three calendar deal so if we use you on a continuing basis for other projects, your base payment for the shoot is increased by 20% each time. We find that when the models are familiar with the process, the subsequent shoots are more efficient and productive, so we reward that professionalism.

Those interested should email two headshots and two full body shots for initial consideration. A group interview will be held a local and reputable photographer's studio in which we are partnering with in two weeks.
