Hello everyone, I’m David - a writer and photographer based near Birmingham.

I’m thinking through a new project about forests and the stories that surround them, called ‘The Book of Huldra’. (The title comes from Norwegian folklore, in which the huldra are beautiful but dangerous forest creatures. The story goes that a woman had washed only half of her children when God came to her woodland cabin; ashamed of the dirty ones, she hid them. God decreed that those she had hidden from him would be hidden from humanity. They became the huldra. They’re the unexplained noises in the shifting, creaking forest, the sensation of being watched from the undergrowth, and half-seen glimpses of human forms between the trees. They’re everything the rational, orderly and law-abiding city isn’t.)

So I’m looking for models to be art-nude huldra for shoots through the autumn. The aim will be wild, dreamy, earthy pictures like those below (all taken over the last few weeks, on shoots resulting in 3 FPIs so far). The only requirements are that the models work to artistic nude and are happy getting a bit mucky among leaves and branches - there’s room in the project for looks from classic elegance to alternative wildness (including tattoos and piercings) – but I’m particularly looking for people who feel an affinity for the forest creature theme.

I have some wonderful bits of forest near where I live, for models who are willing to travel (with the advantage of having a back-up location to shoot in bad weather); or I’m happy to travel to you if you know good locations and are within a few hours’ drive from me.

Very happy to pay your rates and travel: I’d usually be looking for a 4hr shoot, preferably either early morning or evening, for the best light.

My recent references should show you what I’m like to work with on location. And I can send you details about my previous projects if you like (where they’ve been published etc - they're photographic projects but noot model photography).

I’m intending to leave this casting open for a while. I will reply to all responses, but might sometimes take a few days to do so as I think through shoot possibilities.

Thanks for reading (sorry this got so long!), and looking forward to hearing from you!
