Having always been a fan of the gorgeous Marilyn Monroe, I have always loved the idea of doing a Marilyn inspired shoot. I don't necessarily want to do a Marilyn lookalike shoot, just copy the poses, the flavour and the feel of the Marilyn shoots. So, you don't need to be blonde with alabaster skin. Below is a contact sheet with an example of some ideas. I want to get as close to the feel as we can. I have collected a lot of images for inspiration, of which below is just a small sample.

I have stated upto implied, but we can work to suit your particular level. I have cast this as a collaboration, as this is a personal project rather than for commercial intent. I would consider negotiating a part TF for the right candidate. I don't usually give RAW unedited images, but this might be negtiable to the right person. I would also prefer to travel to you (within Essex and 1 hour drive from Basildon), but can shoot from home if needs be.

As for the right candidate, I am not sure whom that might be. I will know if you are right when I see your portfolio, although I would prefer you to be aged under 40. If you are interested then please do drop me a line and let me see if your profle 'speaks' to me re the project. Your stats and ethnicity is not important, nor is experience. I may even shoot the project with various models, if the response is good. However, please do not be offended if I do not offer to work with you on this particular shoot. This might suit a new model starting a portfolio, as I am generous with the number of images shared.

Also, although it is widely believed that Marilyn was a plus size model, this is, in fact, a myth. She simply had a classic hour glass figure. Here are her statistics from her modelling profile in 1945:

August 2, 1945
Blue Book Modeling Agency
5’ 6”, 120lbs

This is around an 8-10 UK size

I look forward to hearing from you and, maybe, working with you soon :)
