I'm photo searching for a book cover. I need a royalty free photo of a "mature" 12-14 year old boy with longish blond hair in full profile or 3/4 profile with clean neck lines (no shirt collar) and serious or pensive expression. Photo will be used as a close up displaying face and some hair and just a small bit of neck, predominant on cover so needs to be good quality. I'd prefer non-harsh outdoor lighting. Boy will be representing US Revolution-era frontier character so hairstyle cannot look overly modern.



Purchase is contingent on my client's approval.



Thanks!

Just let me reiterate. I need a pre-teen, mature-looking 12-14 year old boy. Younger children simply won't do for this project. Thanks!

Background doesn't matter as much. I'll be cutting the boy out. If his hair is still long, your son might just work. Of course, I can't guarantee I'll use the photos, since I have to get my client's approval, but I would definitely like to see what you could get me, if you'd like to try. I'll give you some links to expressions and/or poses I like.

This image was too dark and the boy too young, but I like the profile and angle of the head. I'd prefer to see the neck better. I'm not showing body at all so as long as it's not in the way, I don't care about that.

I love the angle and expression on this photo, just about everything else was wrong. The arm is in the way of the neck, the color and lighting is wrong, the haircut too tailored, and the earring was inappropriate. I'd prefer to have something on DT, but was not able to find anything close except the image I linked too above.

This image was almost usable, but his hair is a little too clean cut, his expression a bit too angry, and his body turned at the wrong angle which ruined the neck line. Once again, it isn't on DT.



If you can give several options, I'd like to see three different perspectives on the eyes. I'd like one gazing down in full profile, and two in 3/4, one with the gaze into the distance, and one making eye contact with the camera. This book is a sequel, and I'm copying a pose used on the first book with a different character. In that one the character was in full profile looking almost back and down, but I'd like to play with that on this cover.

Yikes, it blocked the web addresses. Guess I can't direct you to other sites. Message me if you need the links.

Did you want a sad expression?

Not necessarily sad. Something serious without being overly angry or sad . . . contemplative of life, both the good and the bad. This is a boy that has been through a lot and matured beyond his years, but he's happy, not saddened. He's learning good things from his experiences without becoming depressed or angry. Really, I just want to avoid big, happy grins. He can even look contemplate with a pleasant, almost smile.



Does that make sense?

Thanks! I look forward to seeing what you come up with. Glad you puzzled out the links. I understand the block, but it's annoying at the same time. At least you have a better idea what I'm looking for.

One more question, do you want moody lighting or light and bright?

Don't worry, most microstockers are familiar with different sites and the structure of their links. ;)

Stock agencies just don't want to advertise competitive sites. More links to other sites give them advantage on search engines like Google etc - just an explanation to understand the policy. :)

Hope you will find what you are looking for. Godfer's photos are great.

I'd like the lighting to be day natural but not harsh. I don't want hard shadows.

Brill it was a pleasure to do as I have just been operated on my ankle and cant get out to do photo sessions, so it was great to pick up the camera and be useful :) Let me know if somethings not quite right....I dont have much else to do at the moment :)
