About Me

Award winning, published art and fashion photographer.

Over 2200 of my works are either accepted or awarded in international photography competitions patronaged by FIAP (International Art Photography Federation) and PSA (Photographic Society of America) in over 30 different countries.

My works are published in MMMagazine, Moveir Paris, Elegant, Picton , Horizont, Vous , Gmaro, Marika magazines and many more...

Please read before applying. This is all about what I am looking for and how it works. I will be assuming that you agree with all details once when you contacted.

First part is about my casting calls and what I am looking on a model or for the models who reaches me for shoots and the second part is about me, who you are gonna shoot with.

I am always looking for new models for my future art projects, publications, magazine submissions etc. Portraits, action/sports, artistic nudes, editorials...

I mostly work with male models but beautiful women, group of models are always welcome. I prefer open minded, younger models(18-30 yrs)  with fresh look and good body (skinny to muscled)

My TF shoots may contain nudity. Not all the photos or all the time but some. So if you are not willing to pose nudes, not sure about it or your agency doesn`t allow you but you still wanna work with me then you can request a paid shoot and we can arrange a shoot for your needs.

I prefer to meet the model (paid or TF) before the shoot and discuss about the shoot and get to know the model. So before you contact me you must agree this. Because this is important.

Models are gonna be asked to sign a model release.

Agency models needs to have their agency`s permission.

I am an art photographer as well as a fashion and commercial photographer. So please be advise that the main purpose of these TFP photo shoots for me are creating new art works. I am shooting in half of the period to the models needs. Head shots, editorial looks etc. And on the rest of the time we got, shooting for my current exhibition/show projects, for submitting art photography competitions and books I am working on. So if you or your agency has anything against of artistic usage of the photos then you are applying to wrong casting call. So you can ask a paid shoot that we can create for your needs. Even for artistic uses of photos, models/agencies are gonna have full credits given and also will be informed.

TFP(TFCD) / PAID works
Everyone prefers to get paid and so do I. But on artistic  projects I prefer to put money aside and work TFP...

The models are gonna get the final photos within 10-15 days with my logo on for social media uses such as instagram, facebook, personal websites, blogs etc... Then model is able to request up to 5 photos without logo for official uses once he recieved the photos (agencies, lookbooks etc). The usage of the photos without logo is limited for official uses only. And if the models, agencies or others are using the photos online without logo, without credits ;  if published anywhere without credits they will be ask to remove and not use the photos anywhere from that moment. This does not includes the selected 5 photos to use on agencies sites and look books as long as credits are given.

The photographer holds all the copyrights.

In any photo I use (TF or paid) the credits will be always given and you will have the priorities on my paid shoots.

You will be asked to follow on social media, tag and give credits separately  as I always do.

You can contact me here or on IG barisbarlasphotography

"Baris was quite possibly the best photographer I could have had for my first project with Model Mayhem. He was organized, competent, and made me feel comfortable no matter what I was doing in front of the camera. I highly recommend him." Read less
