Application as a Nude Model (female)


 Would you love to for once feel like a super model and experience a free professional photoshoot? To extend his portfolio, Kristian Liebrand from time to time organizes reference photoshoots. If your application is accepted, you will receive a photoshoot of several hours, if needed a professional styling, and at least 12 elaborately retouched photos in data format, full resolution and without copyright notices (equalling the value of €500).

You can use those pictures for private, non-commercial use and for your Sed card. In return, Liebrand receives the unrestricted copyright for any of the photos he takes from you (modelling contract). The publication of those photos is going to be conducted without any mention of your name. The photos will, for example, be displayed on this website and maybe in art galleries. No photoshoot-experience is required. You also don't need to have the height of a catwalk model. Preferred age: 18 to 30 years old.

Your personal data will, of course, be treated with absolute confidentiality. If you are not accepted to the photoshoot, the photos sent to us will immediately be deleted. Please do not send ANY photos in your bikini, anderwear or any other clothing, as this is no fashion photography. Please also refrain from sending photos that are older than 3 months or strongly retouched. That way only an objective evaluation as of whether or not you are going to be invited to the free photoshoot in the value of €500 will be possible. The photos don't have to be professionally-made, mobile photos taken in front of a mirror are sufficient. The reference shootings generally are conducted without accompanying persons to prevent any disturbances and to be able to work fully (100%) concentrated. The only exception are costly outdoor photoshoots with assistants or with professional models on tfp-basis.

You can apply as a model by sending Kristian Liebrand an email with your nude photos and contact information to info@aktfotostudio-nrw.de.
