The Blog Project: Models Wanted!

The Obscure Holiday Blog Project

Persimmon Lane Photography is looking for some fun-loving folks to participate in some quirky and exciting (but occasionally very serious) photoshoots! We'll be looking for felines to feature on National Cat Day, real life caped crusaders to photograph for National Heroes' Day, or perhaps someone to slop down a Banana Split on August 25th to celebrate National Banana Split Day! No matter what the obscure (or serious) holiday is, we wanna photograph it! Keep checking back for our monthly model calls to be photographed and featured on our blog and Facebook page! the details

  • First and foremost, we're looking for passionate models! Perhaps you're an amazing bowler, or a self-proclaimed Chocolate Chip Cookie expert; whoever you are we hope to meet you! We welcome collaboration of ideas!

  • Sadly there are more wacky holidays than there are hours in a day, so the below list of holidays is not meant to be all inclusive. Simply put - we can't possibly photograph all of the ideas below. We're aiming to photograph 3-5 of the below ideas per month. Models will only be chosen based on photographer's availability.

  • Models will receive 3 photographers choice digital files as compensation for their time; any models seeking additional photos should inquire about rates prior to agreeing to model.
