The Traveling Models of America – They Redefine the Modeling Career

Share Article

This Kickstarter project, initiated by Unveil Me, seeks to produce a coffee table book and accompanying DVD that will focus on 10 models as they go from their hometowns in select locations of America to areas across the country for bookings. The book will be titled The Traveling Models of America, and it is the project team's hope to produce several editions and branch into other forms of media including a website, calendar, and model placement.

Jeff Surratt, the owner of Unveil Me and the project’s creator, started photographing models as a way of public engagement and language skills recovery following two back to back brain surgeries in the fall of 2012. During his six month recovery Jeff met several talented young models at a local coffee house and was introduced to the concept of the “traveling model”. As time progressed Jeff realized that his focus should be on their stories and experiences as well as their personal beauty. Jeff plans on using a talented team of photographers as well as his prior experience working in digital post production for both the 48 Hour Film Project - Richmond and Revolutions Studios, LLC.

Kickstarter campaigns operate under an “all-or-nothing” funding model so if the Traveling Models project doesn’t reach its goal at the end of 30 days then it may not see the light of day. The project team hopes to be fully funded by the end of December 7, 2013. If it is, full production can start and the team can begin providing rewards to investors including behind the scenes access to several photo sets from production work that started in October of this year.

As with any Kickstarter funding campaign, word of mouth and social media are key – your contribution could be as simple as telling 3 to 5 friends or posting the link on your Facebook page.
