Hi! My name is Elyse, and I am a nineteen year old photographer from Montreal (Canada).
I am currently doing a project on people and their physical insecurities. Basically, I am searching for models who will be willing to reveal what they dislike the most about their body, where afterwards I will photograph them with their ”flaw” highlighted by lighting or body position. Obviously, I am searching for people in the Montreal area, but otherwise anyone is welcome to participate! Men, women, plus size, thin… It really doesn’t matter. The goal of this project is to illustrate the ambivalence of the viewers in, say, a gallery, who might see these pictures as simple portraits, whereas the subjects will feel the unease of what they try to hide on a daily basis being revealed to a certain public.
Unfortunately, I do not have any scans of my final prints, as these are not digital images and are currently in my teacher’s hands, being corrected. I work with a Yashica model A, a twin lens film camera handed down from my grand father. I develop and enlarge my films at school, where we have the required facilities.
If you are interested, you can contact me on Tumblr via my personal blog: http://www.primitive-senses.tumblr.com
You can also visit my website where I have left my E-mail and phone number: http://www.elbphotographie.com
Below I have submitted some of my recent work, as my website is not complete and I believe it’s in any model’s right to know what kind photographer he/she’s dealing with!
Thank you very much for reading,
Q:Hi I'm doing a disposable camera project which mean I send disposable cameras to girls across the world, they then fill the camera with photographs of their lives, choosing to photograph whatever they want, they then send the camera back to me. More about the project is here at the-secret-lives-of-girls tumblr. When the photos come back they will be put on the page anonymously, only stating the country/state the photos where taken in! Would you spread the word on here?
Anyone interested in this awesome project?
(Maybe not my best photo, but certainly my favourite!)
Hi! I am a 19 year old female amateur photographer living in the GTA. I mostly just love taking pictures, and I recently upgraded my camera to a Canon Rebel T3i (600D). I saw Amateur Artists Connection as a great way to start getting myself out there to meet new people and try new things as a means to cope with the depression that I’ve always struggled with and my newly-diagnosed bipolar disorder.
I am of Indian and Canadian descent, and I am a size 22/24. I’m basically willing to take photographs for just the cost of transportation, because all I have is my camera and limited experience (basically my dog has been my only model so far). Please feel free to contact me for more information or with any questions, no pressure. Thanks!
Hi, my name is Rima, I co-admin this blog (though it’s Essence’s baby).
I’m 25 and living in Belgium (Europe). I’m a hobby photographer and usually use myself as the subject. I’d love to photography others and/or model (no nudes).
My camera is a Canon EOS 50D and I usually use my nifty fifty (50mm 1.8F) lens for portraits and my 17-40mm for full body photographs.
I’ll photograph/model for free and I’m willing to travel to the borders of the Netherlands and France provided we share gasoline costs. As for make-up and wardrobe I can provide my own.
My blog is www.rimadeer.tumblr.com.
Looking forward to creating with you all!

My name is Sami. I am a 22 year old wanna-be-photographer. I just enjoy taking pictures and being creative, though it’s hard for me to break out of my shell and photograph people since it requires me to be at ease with practical strangers sometimes - and that’s hard. So I’m hoping this may help.
I live in Savannah, GA. I am a fat redhead who likes to work interchangeably with film (Asahi Petax Spotmatic) and digital (Canon EOS 550D). I also crochet a lot so if any lovely models want to help model some of my hats and other creations that would be really awesome since I can never seem to network and find other people to model them besides myself and usually my disgruntled sister.
I am open for to discuss creative ideas for shoots, headshots, artistic nudes, fashion, etc. I really want to expand my profile so don’t be afraid to contact me for something unique.

My name is Jo and I’m a lovely little queer from the Seattle area. I both do photography and modeling work (staying on one side of the camera is so boring) and my prints are for sale.
With modeling I mostly do artistic nudes and I’ve been told that I’m fun to work with. With photography, I am mostly a nature photographer but I refuse to stay in a box. Really, if you like my work and want to model for me just tell me and we’ll discuss options. Most of my prints are for sale though~
I’ll photograph you for free but I do charge a fee with modeling. Contact me for more information~
I’m jules, 24, queer, kinky, invisible disability, littlefat. 5’7, about 180lbs. I live in beautiful Austin, Texas.
I use modelling as a form of self-love and would be more than happy to share my body and overall ridiculousness with a photographer or any other type of visual artist. I’m especially interested in doing happy chubby bdsm-themed stuff because I’m bored to death of only seeing grim-faced uber-skinny women floating around, but I’m open to almost anything!
All my other silly selfies are on my personal blog: http://excessemotions.tumblr.com/tagged/me
First submission! (I know, I know, it’s from one of the blog owners but I wanted to give us a kickstart. Also, typically you should submit yourself as a model and photographer in two different posts but I’m condensing to one post in my own case because I don’t want to flood this blog with submissions from myself!)
Hello! My name is Essence and I’m a mod/founder of AAC. I’m nineteen years old and available in the Chicagoland area. I like to model and take photographs as well. Most of my photos are self-portraits done with a timer. I’m working with a Canon EOS 40D and a 50mm f/1.8 lens and a standard 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6 lens as well. Looking to upgrade on the camera and lens when i can afford it, but anyway…
I’m a size 22/24, and I can provide my own wardrobe and makeup.
