About this project

Objective of this project 

To create sensual (yet natural), photographs of models, performers, dancers, actresses etc with their own rescued and adopted pets, all photographed using film cameras ( 35 mm ), without any cropping or major digital enhancements on the results. 

These photographs will be used as original contents (or mini campaigns) for letlive.life social media platform to promote adoption of stray, abandoned or abused animals of any kinds. #AdoptionIsSexy      ( Tumblr, Instagram, Twitter )

As I would be the creator of these photographs, I can also give them exposure (by re-blogging, sharing, re-posting) in my own personal social media which reaches to 80K+ people across various platforms. ( Instagram, Tumblr, Vimeo , website etc.). The hope is that the contents would go viral and carry the message with them ... which is kindness towards animals and nature in general and more specifically, helping animal shelters by adopting the rescued animals instead or purchasing them from breeders.

The budget would be used to cover the cost of 9 additional photo shoots  (all shot in 35mm film, without any cropping or any major digital manipulations on the results) within next 3 months and creating limited edition prints (1-2 prints per model) and a 60 pages hard cover book (10" x 8") made of the best photographs of this project so far, for the supporters of the project.

The book would include information regarding the models/subjects and the story of how they met and adopted their rescued friends.

Any additional raised fund would go towards more photo shoots for this project, creating a website for it, promoting it and feeding a stray cat colony in Las Vegas which I have been taking care of directly and indirectly for the past 5 years.

Within few days, after each new photo shoot, the selected new photos would be posted here as updates as well as in the social media. There are already many unseen images which are being reserved for the book and consideration for the limited prints.

 The range of photos is between editorial portraits (fashion editorial) to fine art nude and erotica. The nude/erotic shots would be used in platforms which are comfortable with it (twitter and tumblr) and the safer shots would be used for facebook and instagram. 

The prints and included photos in the final book, would be chosen simply based on their photographic merit and strength within their respected genre. Basically, the rewards for the supporters of this project, would be the best of the best between all of the photographs.

Risks and challenges

There are no technical challenges in this project. I have been a creative director, photographer, experimental film maker and book designer for more than 20 years. ( http://wolf189.net/about/ )

The only potential minor challenges and delays might be regarding the upcoming shoots, in case any of the models/subjects have to reschedule a shoot for any reason (which can be fixed easily) and the tight chosen budget.

Aside that it should go smoothly.

I estimate all of the shoots will be done within two months and the prints and book would be ready by the end of October.

Thank you very much for your support and love for animals.
