It's time for some annual do-goodery, and this year I'm making myself available for a shoot sometime between now and Christmas, with all of my modelling fee going towards WaterAid (see info about them below).
I'll be hoping to hear from photographers between now and the end of this week, and it will be on a bidding basis, whereby you let me know your offer of budget and shoot proposal, and I will pick the most suitable offer. Email me at: firstname.lastname@example.org
In a nutshell, please state in your message:
The price you would be able to pay (for WaterAid) for a 2-3 hour shoot (and let me know if you'd like to go for 1, 2 or 3 hours). It's totally up to you what you say you can offer, but as a guideline (in case it helps) my normal UK rates are £45 per hour or £150 for four hours. I imagine I will get widely varying offers, so it's up to you what you state, and I'll pick the best offer.
A list of dates you would be available on, between now and Christmas.
The type of images you would like to shoot - just a vague idea so I know what you have in mind. (I'm available for all my usual styles: fashion, portraits, art nude, dance, wedding, lingerie, etc.)
Your location; I'm based in Oxfordshire so will probably need to prioritise offers in the south east, though not necessarily.
Other info:- You will need to arrange the shoot location yourself, whether it be a studio or home set-up location. If you'd like to shoot with me longer than 3 hours, that's great, but I will probably (guiltily) need to pocket the extra money myself, just so you know. :-) - Being (technically) a paid shoot, you will not be required to send me any of the images you edit after the date, though as always it would be appreciated if you wanted to. - In return, you get kudos and a good feeling. And some brilliant shots! - Think that's it! :-)
WaterAid's vision is of a world where everyone has access to safe water and sanitation.
WaterAid transforms lives by improving access to safe water, hygiene and sanitation in the world's poorest communities. We work with partners and influence decision-makers to maximise our impact.
What we do
WaterAid enables the world's poorest people to gain access to safe water and sanitation. Together with improved hygiene, these basic human rights underpin health, education and livelihoods, forming the first essential step in overcoming poverty.
We work with local partners, who understand local issues, and provide them with the skills and support to help communities set up and manage practical and sustainable projects that meet their real needs.
We also work locally and internationally to change policy and practice and ensure that water, hygiene and sanitation's vital role in reducing poverty is recognised.
Inclusive WaterAid aims to be inclusive in all that we do. We work with economically poor and marginalised people who often miss out such as women and girls, those living with HIV/AIDS, minority ethnic groups, older and disabled people and those who face discrimination. The needs and voices of the communities we work with, our staff, volunteers, partners and stakeholders shape our policy and practice.
Always learning At WaterAid learning is central to our practice. We continually evolve to make sure that our work is sustainable, innovative, relevant and effective.
Collaborative The water and sanitation crisis will only be solved by collaborative action. Our engagement with other organisations, communities, staff and supporters underpins our success. We value their diversity.
Accountable We believe that we should be accountable, responsive and transparent to those we serve and those who support us.
Inspiring WaterAid is a passionate champion of the role safe water, improved hygiene and sanitation play in improving health and education and reducing poverty.
Courageous We set ambitious goals, raise challenging questions and speak with courage and conviction. We are assertive yet humble and respectful.
