Historical Style Shoot in Ballarat

Historical Style Shoot in Ballarat

Victoria, Australia
Listed by View details

PLEASE NOTE: This shoot is yet to be confirmed, but I need to put out feelers now due to the potential time-line.

This is a shoot with a historical bent. I'm talking 50s - 60s B&W and 70s gaudy colour finishes (like POLAROIDs)! I'll know if it's going to go ahead in the next 3 weeks or so. It will be a promotional shoot for a new service I'm hoping to run at a historical tourist attraction in Ballarat.

You'll need to get some 50s - 70s clothing together so you can wear a few different outfits for me on the day.

If you're interested, please confirm you can travel to Ballarat OK; tell me about yourself and the styles of modelling you do, or want to do; and give me a good number of pictures so I can see how you'll fit with this idea.

I'll be providing a selected number of images of the shoot for each model.

Job payment

Unpaid – this is a collaboration opportunity

Collaborations should create mutual benefit and are usually amateur, student or 'Time for Print' projects.


Young, stylish woman (no visible tats or piercing)

Someone who can look like a well dressed, trendy retro character. You'll need to provide your own retro-clothes for the role. An overcoat would be good (we won't keep you in it for long), and a few different dresses / outfits. Something really feminine and attractive would be nice. I want this particular character to appeal to younger women who want a historical portrait shot that makes them look sexy and sophisticated. The weight is a guide; I want a nice figure/ ability to carry the role.

As well as dressing in retro 50s- 70s clothes you'll provide yourself, you will also be dressed in a uniform that young men wore for a specific historical role. I need someone without a lot of height or large frame because it was mainly young fellows who got the jobs, and that's the uniforms we have as a a resource.
