First Agora shoot of the year

Back in March, I had the pleasure of shooting with dancer Vikki Badd at the Agora Statues as part of my Agora Project (boy thats a mouthful).  It was in the neighborhood of 20 degrees that morning, and very windy.  But Vikki was awesome and we got some great stuff.

Casting for some Agora time!

Hello friends!

It'll be spring before you know it, and that means warmer weather for shooting outside.  I've got a project that I'm pretty excited about and looking to jump into this year.  I've been calling it the Agora project, and as you can guess, it's shot at the Agora statues downtown.

What I'm looking for is people who are interested in standing out from a crowd.  If the Agora represents a crowd of people with no individual characteristics, then I want to showcase people who break free from that norm in visual ways.  Dancers, soccer players, bubble artists, whatever you have to offer, I'm interested.

Here are the details:

  • All shoots happen in the morning around Sunrise.  Through trial and error I've found it's the best time to shoot.
  • The shoot is TFP.  After the shoot is completed, I'll select the best work and send you digital copies for personal use.  If you need gas money, or you're bringing something perishable to the shoot that is a primary element of the images, I will happily kick in some money to make it happen.
  • The goal of the project is to have a gallery showing hopefully in 2014, but more likely in 2015.
  • No Jerks.

If you are interested or have additional questions, feel free to fill out the contact form to the right.
