Alan, I have a child who is very good with water and posing. She can pose under water. Are you interested? She is 6 year old.

The fashion show is a paid event.? Your pay is based on your market potential, just like any model or photographer. ? I will not pay you to learn how to model underwater or how to scuba dive.? I will not pay you to audition or learn.? I will not consider anyone if they are not able to show that they can adapt to the underwater world.? If you have never done it, it is harder then you think to be graceful, control your bubbles from being in the way, adjust your buoyancy, not flail your arms and legs, keep good body position in a neutral environment, sometimes have to adjust lung volume, control the flow of your hair and clothes and yet seem peaceful and serene.? Underwater modeling instruction is incredibly time consuming and expensive on my part and I won't pay you to learn.

If a photographer shoots you during practice then he must pay the studio which will pay you if you are learning.?? Photographers not associated with the production, will be charged during the event which will be livecast on video.? Practice will be videotaped and you must review the tape as part of your practice.? Practice sessions run no more than 20 minutes before you break due to the exertion.

The model / photographer agreements that I provide are tailored to the event.? You should always protect yourself by having at least two agreements that you bring with you to any shoot.? One that is general purpose and one that specifically bars the release of photos if no agreement is made.? You can then look at the photographers agreement and accept or reject it.? If you reject it, you can still proceed with the shoot if the "release block" is in place.? This allows you to negotiate later.

I will not make any promises about "what you will get out of it" until an agreement is signed.? Then what you will get out of it will be in the agreement.? During the event each model will be paid differently just like most events.?

On the non legal side of it.? Underwater fashion photography and underwater abstract photography can give you amazing photographs in your portfolio that can make you stand out.

We have access to some great boats, mansions and other Lake Locations and depending on how we work together who knows how that can work for you, I can't make promises about them.? I will not promise anything not in writing.? No photographer or model should.

Any other questions?? This is an open call to any model who wants to try it or photographer who is willing to pay to shoot practice sessions.

Photographers who are interested in shot and set development are welcomed to submit partner proposals.

For those of you that know me, we may be working closer with the Veterans Administration on our Virgin Islands sailing and scuba project as they have contacted us and are sending two reps over this week.?

Tell me the details and I'll think about it. Is this a paid work? If not, what am I gonna get out of it? What kind of paperwork do you provide, and so forth? Thank you.

It is a lot of very hard work.? Would you like to give it a shot?

Alan

Underwater fashion shows are complex. ?The models need some training and have to be able to work with designers. ?This is not the kind of shoot where you can just show up and "get r done". ?I am attaching a concept shot of what is required. ?I have an underwater studio and an event co-ordinator is looking for models who can work underwater. ?You may need 3 days practice just to be capable. ?Let me know if you would like to try this.
