Stumptown Blue Magazine
Is Looking for Models and Actresses!
Every week we shoot two distinct types of work for our monthly subscription-only magazines available through our Patreon account.
We are looking for attractive, fit and charismatic models for non-nude, implied and tasteful nude projects
The first opportunity involves shooting photo sets in the artistic, beauty, fashion, boudoir, lingerie, swimsuit and glamour categories – in our studio, or on location, sometimes with your wardrobe, often with what we provide. These projects may or may not involve tasteful nudity – that’s a choice a model is free to make, and we will discuss that choice, respect it, and work with you happily either way.
We are also looking for models and actresses for our erotic adult-themed productions
Our “After Dark” category, appearing in a completely separate secure online gallery, include fetish, kink, BDSM, erotic, and other adult-themed still photo sets and video projects. Some of our models/actresses shoot in both categories, others have no interest in doing adult-themed work. And that’s perfectly fine — your choices and preferences are always respected.
The two most common questions: what does it pay, and do you require/provide STD test results?
Email us for our current rates; we try hard to be fair and pay well for the Portland market. Yes, our rate is lower than what LA studios pay, but we’re not in LA. Suffice it to say that most local and traveling models and actresses say our payment rates are both fair and competitive, all things considered.
In terms of STD testing, we don’t generally require or provide test results unless the production involves genital/genital or genital/mouth contact. In addition, “couples” who are sexual partners outside the industry are not required to provide proof of testing to us. As we grow and formalize our business practices we’ll get stricter about STD testing, and we will also be providing information on the best places to get economical testing here in the Portland area. The bottom line? If you provide STD test results and require them from anyone you work with in front of our cameras, we will respect that preference and provide them to you as well.
Don’t wait – contact us now!
If you are 18+ and love being in front of the camera, we may be interested in working with you. Use the contact form provided below, and email us three photos to @, preferably including at least one full length nude or bikini, and let us know the specific type(s) of work you are interested in. If we don’t get back to you right away, that doesn’t necessarily mean we aren’t interested in working with you. Some weeks we get swamped with dozens of requests, others we get none at all, so we will keep your information on file and contact you when we need someone with your look for a particular project. And if you’ve contacted us in the past, it absolutely doesn’t hurt to do it again — we tend to give preference to models who show that they are serious about working with us. If you do work with us, you will be required to produce state-issued ID for proof of age, and sign a model release.
Regardless of the type of content we are shooting with you, we will ALWAYS provide a safe, respectful consent-based working environment. We keep it fun, drama-free and professional and appreciate the same from the people we create art with!
We love shooting with entertainers who need photos for professional purposes
In addition to shooting for our online magazine/Patreon, we also often shoot with professional models and actresses updating their portfolios, webcam girls creating photo sets or video content to sell on their sites or use on social networking, hoop and fire dancers, go-go dancers, burlesque performers, strippers, drag queens, all types of sex workers and other entertainers who need photos to promote their profession or work. Contact us to discuss your options – we’d love to work with you!

We Pay You
From time to time we pay models and actresses to shoot still photo sets or video for our online magazine, for our concept and for our business purposes. The range of payment varies — contact us for specifics. If we pay you to shoot with us, you should not necessarily expect to receive any rights to use the images, although that can easily be arranged if you would like to use them too. For paying shoots, we always require a signed model release and proof of 18+ age. We reserve the right to choose who we cast for paid shoots, and unfortunately, we are unable to hire every model who would like to be paid to shoot with us.
Nobody Pays Anyone (Trade)
If you want us to shoot photos or video of you, and we have a project, business need, or personal artistic interest in working with you, we can do it with shared usage rights — you can use them however you like, and we can use them too. In this situation, we work on a trade basis — we exchange your modeling time for our photography time — there is no charge or payment for the photo shoot. Requires a signed model release and proof of 18+ age. Trade shoots are a sign of mutual respect between a model and a photographer; they are like getting invited to stay at a bar after closing hours, having your meal comped at a restaurant, getting backstage passes at a concert, or having your budtender put an extra nug in your jar. Neither models nor photographers should assume trade shoots are automatically available. We can't offer trade shoots to every model who requests them, but it can't hurt to ask! If we decline to shoot with you on a trade basis, please don't take it personally -- we may simply be swamped with work for our paying clients; we may not have a business use or a project needing photos of you at this particular time, and we reserve the right to make the final decision about who we choose to invest in by agreeing to a trade shoot in lieu of the payment that is normally required.
You Pay Us
If you want us to shoot photos or video of you for your exclusive professional or business use, we generally charge a simple hourly or “by the look” rate for the session — we provide you with the hi res images either via an online gallery, or on a USB thumb drive. We also provide you with a broad usage license that gives you the right to use the images commercially if you choose, without need for further permission from, or payment to us. The pictures are truly yours! If we choose not to shoot with you on a trade basis, or pay you to shoot with us, chances are good that we WILL work with you if you compensate us for our time, equipment, studio space, experience, and expertise.
However you choose to work with us, we have a well-earned reputation for creating a safe, respectful, but fun environment for our models and actors. Regardless of the nature of the content we are shooting, we provide a consent-based environment, and we never try to push your limits or comfort zone. You’ll love working with us, and you’ll love the results even more!
Contact us at @ if you live in, or are visiting the Portland area and are possibly interested in working with us. We’ll ask you to email a few pictures so that we have an idea of what you look like, and we’ll ask about what type of work you are interested in shooting. If you’d like, we’d be happy to set up a meeting with you before booking a shoot so you can meet us and discuss your options. We always require proof of age (18+) before we shoot – no exceptions!
