compensation: $50 per shooting session, plus $20 bonus if approved for quality by KEZI (HD)

I need one or more models with their own couches and their own pets to pose for pictures exactly simillar to the photo in the photo gallery on the homepage of my web site, couchhosting.org. The pay is $50 per shooting session, plus I can throw in an additional $20 bonus per session if the model has their own camera on whatever device that is capable of taking the shots in HD quality that get approved for quality by the folks at KEZI for tv broadcast.

Before hiring any particular model for a session, I would need to review photos of the model, their couch and their pet to be sure that they are all appropriate for the shots that I wish to compose.

After taking the photos, I would need to have the model sign a release, giving me (John Thielking and CouchHosting.org) the rights to republish and modify the photos as I see fit.

Since there seems to be some confusion and dropping out after not reading all of the above ad copy, I have decided to add the following ad copy:

Hello,

I am in search of up to three new models for my art cards, one of which is pictured in this ad. The pic in this ad is too dark and KEZI also told me that even the raw shots were too blurry, plus they were not high enough quality to be HD for broadcast in a commercial on MeTV (channel 9-2).

The requirements that must be fulfilled before I will hire you to do this new photo shoot with me are:

Send me sample photos. Photos that are low res and/or with watermarks are OK. I need photos of yourself, your pet (dog or cat or other cute pet that you allow to sit on your couch) and last but not least, your couch. If you are concerned that I might use your sample pics without paying you, please at least insert a makeshift watermark in each sample pic by importing the pic into Paint and adding your name in big letters (in transparent mode please) across the pic. The pic that I have in this ad with my name (John Thielking) across it is what the sample pic should look like with a watermark added using Paint.

I need the sample pics, not so that I can sort them by the models' skin colors, but so that I can pick the best ones that have good looking clothing colors, good couch vs pet colors and contrast, vibrant backgrounds behind the couches and good lighting.

If you have your own high quality camera that can take HD quality shots and won't wash out the pic if the lighting is a bit dim, please let me know that and if we use your camera and KEZI later tells me that the raw shots are good enough for HD broadcast quality, then I will pay you a $20 bonus on top of the regular fee of $50 per shooting session.

Because the model used for the art card pictured in this ad has recently struggled to remain housed, added street cred is to be had and bonus points given in the hiring process to those applicants who have had similar struggles with housing. If at any point in your life you have been homeless, or lived in a cramped room mate situation (ie doubled up), I especially want to hear from you. Experiences involving couch surfing as a tourist also add bonus points.

The hiring process is expected to be mostly completed by July 6th, 2018. If I have not yet hired three models by then, then the deadline will be extended.

If you are hired, you will be asked to sign a release giving me (John Thielking and CouchHosting.org) the rights to republish your pics in any manner that I see fit.

Thank you.
