Avid Light Modeling – Web Newsletter & Update

Periodically updated by Avid with scheduling, announcements, and general info

 

 

NEWS & UPDATES

 

Platform & Scheduling Changes

After my March/April session surge I had a little pause, but am resuming live online open sessions in May with a couple changes!

·       All my sessions will be via Zoom Meetings. I enjoyed aspects of using Yondo for a full year but am making the switch for budgetary and feature reasons.  The group interaction capability on Zoom is sometimes needed, and they meanwhile have made some improvements that I think will enable me to provide a video stream of similar quality to Yondo’s.

·       Concurrently I’m trying a ticketing platform so artists can self-register and securely pay for my events. It also allows me to offer things like free trial access or other options. I’ll provide a unique registration link for each event listing in this newsletter, DCAMC calendar, and elsewhere. Once you’ve registered for an event you should receive an order confirmation with a unique Zoom link for the session.

·       With occasional exceptions, scheduling will be standardized to 3 sessions each month, with the same general session types on the same days/times. As we enter the post-COVID period I’m hoping this will make planning a little easier while still offering some affordable and creative sessions online.  See the schedule section below for more details!  Each session will have unique aspects and poses, with the same level of creative input and professional lighting I am known for providing.

·       I can also still be booked for private or semi-private custom modeling sessions for an individual artist or small group, either online or ‘in-person’ within the DC/Annapolis area. In the warm months I certainly would consider outdoor photo shoots or drawing/painting artists considering a plein air figure project.  I will no longer have the Yondo “1-to-1” scheduling feature, so for now these will need to be booked by direct coordination.  Most weeks I have several feasible time slots including days or nights, weekdays or weeknights. But availability varies greatly so please inquire by email and we’ll figure it out!

 

Artists’ Input Invited!

My goal is to bring variety and creativity to my figure modeling, including different themes for planned sessions. At the bottom of this newsletter is a table with a ‘menu’ of theme titles and descriptions I can interpret. I keep adding to that list as ideas evolve and pre-select a few options I will use to plan my next open modeling sessions. I welcome hearing from artists anytime items from the menu that interest them, or their own ideas/variations!  Email is usually best:  avid44444@avidlightmodel.com   (but omit all “4s” …just an anti-bot trick)

 

 

MODELING SCHEDULE


Events open to artists interested in work or practice with a life model. These are all events I am hosting and/or for which I am modeling; see info for private bookings further below. Session-specific details are included with each listing; additional general info and FAQs can be found at the end of this newsletter.

May 8, 3:00-6:00pm EDT (1900-2200 UTC):  DCAMC Second Saturdays “Model Extravaganza!”

Theme: TBA   (this is a monthly themed multi-model session hosted by DC Art Model Collective and Washington Studio School; I plan to participate in May’s)

Type: Costumed/clothed professional models of DCAMC taking turns to interpret the month’s theme with their own pose and creative style; typically 8-12 models participate! Artists of any skill level or age welcome.

Plan: These sessions usually open with a few short poses by one model, followed by each additional model taking a turn for one 15-20m pose – all interpreting the same theme in different ways.

Platform: Zoom, hosted by DCAMC and WSS

Fee: $20 requested with options to pay what you can afford if that isn’t feasible

Registration:   see DCAMC website and “Register Now” button for additional info and registration (if this month’s hasn’t been updated please check back): https://www.dcartmodelcollective.com/model-extravaganza/

 

May 15, 3:00-6:00pm EDT (1900-2200 UTC):  Avid’s Theme Thing Third Saturday!

Theme: Concept: WISP (034U) -- working with sheer fabrics, screens, lighting to create ethereal, flowy, silhouetted, or diffused looks with the figure

Type: Undraped professional male life model in uninstructed live session for practice or work in figure drawing/painting. Attendees of any skill level are welcome but should be age 18+ or have parental permission. Notice: session is approved to be held in Zoom Meetings for educational purposes, with any nudity in that context only (not sexually explicit or ‘adult’ content).

Plan: Let’s have creative fun with diffusion! I will be planning medium to long poses using a few different approaches to soften or alter the form, such as with sheer materials and lighting effects, without obscuring all detail. Goals range from a ghostly or ethereal look to playing with unusual shadows or silhouette interacting with the solid figure in the scene. I hope to provide good challenges for practice but also content you might use for an interesting, finished work.  Specifics are still evolving; pose flow planned so far (// = short break and/or scene change):

5x 2m warm-ups, 2x 5m // 10m, 15m // 25m // 25m // 50+m or to end, with a break

Platform: Zoom. Attendees are not required to share identifying info, camera, or mic during poses but are welcome to interact during set-up, breaks, or wrap-up. 

Fee: $20 requested or pay what you are able.

May 25, 9:30-11:30am EDT (1330-1530 UTC):  PAAM Tuesday Virtual Life Drawing

Theme: Long pose open life drawing session hosted by Provincetown Art Association and Museum (PAAM)

Type: Undraped professional male life model in uninstructed live virtual drawing/painting session hosted/moderated by PAAM

Plan: I’m honored to again be the model for one of PAAM’s weekly virtual life drawing sessions. For the Tuesday long pose sessions, I usually start with about 10 minutes of short warm-up poses, then begin one long pose that will be sustained to end of session (with breaks about every 20m).  These are sessions are uninstructed, but the PAAM folks do a nice job hosting and helping attendees. There are usually various skill levels and I select the setup and poses to help add variety.  These morning sessions have a nice vibe and attract a great mix of artists.

Platform: Zoom  (NOTE: PAAM activates the session by 9:00 or 9:15 EDT and we start promptly at 9:30 so it’s best to plan to join the meeting a little early)

Fee: $10  (PAAM also offers pre-purchase of multiple sessions)

Registration:  Please see PAAM’s website for more info and to register:   https://www.paam.org/courses/virtual-life-drawing/

 

May 27, 7:00-10:00pm EDT (2300-0200 UTC):  Avid’s Fourth Thursday Night Theatrics!

Attendees of any skill level are welcome but should be age 18+ or have parental permission. Notice: session is approved to be held in Zoom Meetings for educational purposes, with any nudity in that context only (not sexually explicit or ‘adult’ content).

Plan: A little drama balanced with a chill-out vibe for a night of practice and work with the figure. Grab an adult beverage or soft drink, dim the lights, and be ready to create and/or just enjoy some art therapy!  Session will offer a variety of whole figure and closer-cropped views, and different pose durations including a couple long-ish ones. No complicating props or costuming, but interesting poses should combine with low-key lighting to provide plenty of complexity just with the figure. Pose flow planned so far (// = break ~5m):

5x 2m warm-ups, 2x 5m // 10m, 15m // 10m, 15m // 20m // 25m // 30+m to end, with stretch break

These monitored sessions hosted by WSS usually start with several short poses then quickly progress to one long pose that will be sustained for most of the time (with breaks).

PRIVATE BOOKINGS


 

ONLINE/VIRTUAL

 

Private appointments cost a little more than pre-scheduled open sessions but allow you as artist to choose your own scheduling, pose flow, and details within my abilities. There are two basic types available.

 

Individual Session. Best for a single artist, or up to three co-located artists sharing one computer or device to display the model view. (Participation of more than artist in a 1-to-1 sessions requires my awareness and authorization in advance).

 

Please email me to check my calendar availability, pricing, and to book me.

 

Private Group or Class.  When scheduling allows, I can be booked for one or more sessions to model for schools, classes, private groups, or events needing a figure model during online sessions. If you are the model coordinator, moderator, or organizer of such a group feel free to inquire. I’m happy to pre-coordinate specific instructional goals or needs you may have or suggest a session framework. 

 


IN-PERSON

 

I am now available for in-person modeling bookings in the Washington D.C./Annapolis/Baltimore area, or further if travel arrangements are agreed.  I have been fully vaccinated against COVID-19, but happy to follow ongoing precautions for others’ sakes as needed. If I am available and capable of the modeling work needed, I can attend sessions as short as two hours or up to multiple days. In-person bookings can be made by individual artists, schools, or groups working in painting, drawing, sculpture, or photography. This availability generally covers the Washington DC/Annapolis/Baltimore area without travel charges; more distant assignments will be considered depending on feasibility and compensation for travel time & expenses.

 

In-person bookings and rates are based on specific availability and agreement to be coordinated, so please contact me to inquire.  Don’t hesitate to inquire about any sort of idea or project. Particularly while the pandemic is active, my agreement to model on an in-person basis depends on confidence that essential precautions are being practiced.

 

 

GENERAL INFO / FAQs


ONLINE SESSION INFO, RULES & ETIQUETTE

 

PENDING

 

MY SCREENSHOT/PHOTO/RECORDING RULES and REFERENCE PHOTO AVAILABILITY

Modeling work is a type of intellectual property, has privacy considerations, and there are important reasons to preserve the “life” in life modeling. Like most professional art models, I do *not* by default allow artists to take screen shots (either on the device or by photographing their screen) during live sessions.  Exceptions are sometimes made so you are welcome to ask. 

As this is part of our livelihood, we also tend to protect the notion that our modeling imagery has value (else you would not be using it!) – so we typically offer reference photos for a small fee.  For most sessions, with a little notice I can create still images and them available to you shortly after the session for continued work on particular poses. Typical rates are $5 for a ‘screen quality’ version (using the same webcam as the live stream), or $10 for a higher quality and resolution version made with a DSLR. It’s important to let me know during a live session or very soon after if this is something you’d like, so the images can be made while the setup is intact, and the pose is fresh in mind.

 

WHY ARE SOME SESSIONS 18+ AND SOME ARE NOT?

Zoom sessions marked 18+ do not contain any pornographic, sexually explicit, or ‘adult’ content. Some sessions do involve full nudity artistic contexts for figure drawing/painting work or practice, however. As noted, attendees to these sessions must be age 18+ or have had parental permission sent to Avid in advance of the session. This is simply to avoid surprises or offending anyone’s sensibilities.

 

PAYMENT/TIP OPTIONS

You do not need a PayPal account to pay for events or services for which a ‘shopping cart’ or self-registration has been set. But for accepting tips, donations, or separate transactions I have a few other payment options. You do need an account to use these:

- PayPal (use web address paypal.me/avidlight1)

- Venmo (to Avid-Light) – smartphone app

- CashApp  ($AvidLight) – smartphone app

 

SHARING/SOCIAL MEDIA

I always appreciate it when artists share works in progress or projects that they completed based on my modeling services. I also respect artists’ wishes about further sharing, so please let me know if you wish my usage to be limited (for example “portfolio use OK with artist credit, but no social media”). 

Likewise, although sharing photographic screen grabs etc. is a no-no, it is almost always acceptable to share work you did in other media (drawing, painting etc.) from my modeling work in your portfolio or social media shares. Tagging my model name is appreciated. If in doubt, just ask (especially if you think the content is sensitive).
