The experience is very similar to the regular nude body painting session. The main difference is the painting selection will be something that we don’t have in our portfolio. In other words, you’ll be the first to have that design.
The purpose of this session is to create a new image to expand our portfolio (and yours). This is why we subsidize half of the cost for the session. In addition to showcasing the image on our site, we may use the images for our next book and/or other commercial and promotional uses.
What to expect
Private body painting session by Danny Setiawan, our master painter, with the coverage area of your front or back upper body. This would last anywhere from 1.5 – 3 hours depending on the design.
After the painting is done, the newly painted masterpiece on your body will be captured in a studio photography session that last for about an hour. At the end of the session, you’ll sign an industry-standard model release form.
After the session, we’ll apply basic retouching to the images and upload them to an online gallery.
You will receive a $50 credit that you can use to purchase prints from the online gallery
We will also send you 10 digital images of your choice that you can use for your online portfolio (web resolution approximately 600 x 900 px)
Here are some designs/paintings that we’d like to add to our portfolio. If there’s one that you really like, please mention it when you contact us.
The Bather - Renoir
Girl Before Mirror - Picasso
Prodigal Son - Rembrandt
Summer - Mucha
Great Wave of Kanagawa
Mother and Child - Klimt
Do I get to choose the design that will be painted on me?
You can suggest a design, but the painter will have the final say based on your look and the information that he gathers from you when he speaks with you.
I don’t have modeling experience. Am I eligible?
Yes, we work with both professional models from agencies and people who have never done modeling. We will provide guidance for posing and other aspects of the session for inexperienced models.
