Local Collaboration Fun!

So I have this idea that I am working on for a photo shoot, based on some artwork from a favorite childhood book of mine, The Bearestein Bears: No Girls Allowed. I have a style sheet done using images that I complied from various internet sources to try and piece together what I envision in my head.

I want to set up a fun fort in the woods using a few pallets and blankets or fabric and show girls in the 3-8 year old range in play-clothes mixed with some more odd pieces, such as wings or feathers or funky jewelry, head pieces or hair accessories.  I want to actually portray how enchanted it would look if a bunch of kids built a playground exactly the way they wanted and dressed exactly the way they wanted. I want to show off local people’s cool art, clothing designs, consignments, vintage goods ect!

I would love to collaborate with other artists, shop owners, creatives,  in the Ashland/Talent area to make this happen! I would love for a writer to write and article about a topic such at local artist collaborations, kid culture or even a story or poem to publish in a local publication.

I am hoping to use children age 3 to 7 or 8, someone to do face paint and people to loan used or hand made or designed clothing, costumes and props. I am also looking for someone who owns a piece of property in a wooded creek area to use, as well as many other things. I have worked on styled shoots with children before to promote local businesses/designers and it is so much fun. If you would like to know more leave a comment or email me and let’s chat! I would love to be shooting this September 18th!

You don’t have to come to the shoot, but of course you are welcome to! I can pick up any items you would like to loan and of course you will be given access to images for your facebook, website, etc as well as credit for your art wherever it is publish in print and online! Let’s show people what cool thing we can do together all locally! And share this with other’s you know who may want to participate!

Note: I do not own these images, they are borrowed form magazines, books and google image searches for the purposes of helping other artists see my vision for the feel of the shoot. I in no way claim these as my own works.
