Modeling with On The Fly Photography.

Want free photography? Looking to:

  • build a portfolio
  • gain experience in front of the camera
  • have fun
  • do something different
  • all of the above and more

Then you might have come to the right place. On The Fly Photography is always looking for new victims . . . I mean models . . . to stand in front of the camera and look cute.

Are you excited about:

  • modeling in exchange for photographs and the rights to use them
  • being sprayed by fog machines
  • playing with assorted weapons
  • being told to “look cuter”
  • being blinded by bright lights
  • waiting 6 months to get your photographs because the photographer is backed up with work
  • watching me futz with lighting for 20 minutes just to get one photograph
  • seeing yourself in time lapse videos on YouTube
  • listening to my idea of good music
  • having a unicorn horn attached to your head

Excellent. Here is what ya should do.

How To Make It Happen

1. Contact me. Ideally you should email me directly and attach a few photos of yourself. I know, it sounds so shallow. That’s me. Shallow. But what you look like does matter.  Email me at

SkippyOTF at gmail dot com

But ya know what else matters just as much? Personality. If I’m interested in working with you then we will set up an interview.

What you look like only goes so far.  I’m looking for personality.

2. Interview.  We will meet at a coffee shop or my office for an interview.  If it’s a coffee shop then I use Mugs Coffee Lounge, either Mugs on the Oval or Mugs at Olive and College.  If it’s the office then it’s at Cohere in downtown Fort Collins.  Or sometimes I interview at Happy Lucky’s Tea House when I’ve grown tired off too much coffee.

Interviews are important.  I very seldom work with anyone I have not interviewed previously.

Important – If you are coming to an interview with me:

  • If you have a portfolio please bring it with you.
  • Make sure you know where we are meeting – Cohere, Happy Lucky’s, Mugs on the Oval or Mugs at College & Olive are all regular meeting places I use.
  • Make sure you have my phone number.  It’s on the website.  If I remember I’ll email it to you before we are suppose to meet.
  • Please text me if you are going to be late.  I only wait 15 minutes for late arrivals.
  • Please do not wear make-up.

And that’s that.

3.  If we survive each other then we will go from there.

What do you get out of this deal?

You get to work with the greatest fashion and fantasy photographer in the world.  I will be there as well.  It’ll be lots of fun.

But seriously.  What do you get out of it?

Fun. I always try to have fun when shooting.  This is pretty critical.

Modeling experience and for people without experience you get my Modeling 101 class.  (That’s a $150 value!)

You will get low resolution copies of all photos you are in so that you can see how you are doing as a model – the good and the bad.  Plus you get low resolution and high resolution copies of all post processed photos.

You get the rights to use your photos for personal and professional use.  Essentially the only limits on your use of your photos is that you can’t sell them for money without giving me a percentage and you can’t enter them in any photography contests without my permission.

Depending on the magnitude of the shoot I may have wardrobe, make-up, hair styling and locations all provided to you for free.

Questions you may have:

But Skippy, aren’t you just trying to have sex with me?  The last guy who told me he was a “photographer” was a pervert.

Yup.  I Iike sex.  Your suspicions of my intentions are one of the reasons we do an interview prior to working together.  If sex seriously scares you it is totally okay to not work with me.  I’m pretty selective myself so I don’t hold being selective against you.

If you wanna check up on me and talk with some models I’ve worked with in the past that’s a perfectly intelligent thing for you to do.  If you go over to my ModelMayhem page you can view a list of models I’ve worked with and all of them can easily be contacted via MM for free.

On The Fly Photography on ModelMayem.com

And just because you claim you are a “model” doesn’t mean I believe you either.  Think about it.

By the way.  Working at Hooters is not modeling.  Just so you know.

Do I have to sign a model release?

Yes you do.  You can download a copy of my current model release from this link: http://204EastSouth.com/pdf/model_release.pdf

No release = no photos.  Release forms must be signed before shooting begins.

Are there any age requirements?

Normally I only work with people who are 18 or older.  I will make exceptions however if you are truly invested in the process.  Macie and Mady being two examples of whippersnappers I allowed in front of my camera.

If you are under 18 one of your parents or guardian must sign the model release.  Again, no release = no photos.  If you are under 18 you can bring someone to the shoot if you feel the need to do so.

Mothers, don't let your daughters model for On The Fly Photography. I give guns, knives, explosives and gin to 15 year-old girls.

Mothers, don’t let your daughters model for On The Fly Photography. I give guns, knives, swords, explosives and gin to 15 year-old girls. And they look good.

Will I get copies of the photos?

Yes. You will get low resolution copies of all the photos and both low & high resolution copies of the post processed photos.  You can use them for personal use and self-promotion as much as you like.  You can sell them but I get a percentage of the money.  You can not enter them in any photography contest unless you have my permission.

When you post the photos on Facebook if you crop out my copyright notice I will judge you.  Just so ya know.

How do I get my disk of photos?

1. If we see each other often enough I’ll just burn a disk and bring it to you next time we cross paths.

2. I can upload a zip file of the images to my website and you can download it.  Keep in mind this will be a huge file. Not a good idea if you have a slow connection.

3. You can bring me an envelope large enough for a DVD to fit into that has your address on it.  Put $1 inside to cover postage.  When the photos are finished I’ll mail the disk to you.

But Skippy, I’ve never modeled before.  I don’t know what to do.

Lot’s of “real models” don’t know what to do.  I know how to tell you what to do.  Here is a secret of modeling.  I can tell you everything you need to know about modeling in about 45 minutes.  After that it’s all experience.  If you can take direction, relax and have fun then we can make you look great.  I sometimes have a creative director working with me as well and that person’s focus is on helping you look good.

But Skippy, I’m not pretty enough to be a model.

I love it when women tell me this.  Look, I’ve been doing this longer than you and I know what the heck a pretty girl looks like.  This is the lamest crap I’ve ever heard.  If I say you should model then you should model.  Don’t argue with an expert.  I’m an expert.  You aren’t.

You will Photoshop my imperfections right?

No.  I will not.  I don’t Photoshop.  What you look like is what you look like.  if you are looking for plastic photography you have come to the wrong place.  Every girl and guy you see in my photos looks just like they do in the photos.

But Skippy, you have a sense of humour and I have a corncob up my ass.

Okay, ya got me there.  We probably shouldn’t work together.  I like to have fun when I’m shooting and I like everyone at the shoot to have fun as well.  If you are a stick in the mud . . . stay away.  Shoots can be long, boring and difficult.  You may think modeling is easy, that you just stand there and look pretty.  In truth it can be hard work and long days.  If it were easy everyone would be a model.
