Call for Photographer for David Lynch inspired collection

*Preface- if you are a photographer, model, or h/mua interested in working with me on other projects, please feel free to comment below! I appreciate your interest and perhaps we can work on something together. 

Call For Photographer:

I am looking for a photographer for a project I have long wanted to do. A collection of clothing inspired by the ICONIC and incredible work of David Lynch, particularly Blue Velvet and Twin Peaks. I can't even begin to describe my feelings for these works. I love them, they make me feel things deeply, they are RICH with powerful imagery.

The clothing for the collection is mostly still in sketches, a few pieces are actually underway. I would like to arrange to shoot in 2 months. The clothing.... will be spectacular.... it will include ephemeral gowns, sexy blouses, textured skirts and dresses, chunky oversize sweaters, which will be inspired not only by the clothing from the movies but the themes, imagery, scenery, patterns, etc.

I am looking for someone who is equally obsessed with David Lynch, who knows the moods and scenes and characters... I am hoping to find someone who is as excited by this project as me. If you are not a fan but this is reeeeally appealing to you, I would still consider you, but you have some TV watching homework to do. 

I don't want to duplicate the inspiration material but I want it to set the MOOD, inspire the makeup, and the lighting, as well as props and other details that would add to the artistic connection (nitrous mask, YES!). I also would like the models to have some resemblence to key characters in the works, specifically: Laura Palmer(medium-long blonde hair), Audrey Horne (short haired brunette), Nadine Hurley(redhead with eye patch) of Twin Peaks, and Dorothy Valens (curly haired brunette played by Isabella Rosselini) of Blue Velvet. The same model(s) could double for characters. 

Payment:  Essentially TFP. I can provide a small stipend, which you may keep as compensation for your time, or use in part for gas money, supplies for the shoot, etc.  

What I need to get back from the shoots: 1-2 edited photos of each look I send you. I would be posting the photos on my various social media and also in my Etsy shop, which gets traffic from all over the world. Clothing needs to be returned promptly after the shoot with no stains or tears.

Arranging the shoot: Ideally photographers would want to arrange most of the details of the shoot such as location, models, and h/mua. This has worked out well before as it avoids miscommunications from "too many cooks in the kitchen" so to speak. I would be in contact with you, and you could conduct the team. 

I will have some specific ideas for scenes and poses I would like to see but there is room for creative freedom on your part as well. I am always open to ideas.

Contact: If you are interested in learning more, email me at or send me a message on facebook (Rosie Rose or Rosie Rose Designer page) and we can discuss details. If you have never worked with me before, please include two references that I can contact. 

Thank you for reading and I hope to hear from you soon! :)
