I'm looking for several attractive ER doctors, nurses (of either sex), techs, paramedics, or EMTs to appear in an ER calendar I'm creating. What's in it for you? Half a dozen free calendars. In addition, you can (if you wish) popularize your web site or yourself by writing a short blurb. Who knows — perhaps you'll become a celebrity!
I'm particularly interested in photographs that depict you in an emergency
setting without showing any identifiable patient or other persons who wish to
preserve their confidentiality. However, I'm willing to consider other
picture motifs, such as you
reading an ER journal or book at the beach.
Frequently asked questions
1. How do I submit my picture?
The best way is to submit it in a JPEG (.jpg) format as an e-mail attachment. Please keep the file size below 75K. If I decide to use your picture I'll ask that you send it as an uncompressed TIFF (.tif) or bitmap (.bmp) file because JPEG compression invariably degrades picture quality by introducing artifacts.
2. What if I don't have a scanner?
Mail your picture to me. Contact me to obtain the address for photo submission.
If you want the picture returned, please include a self-addressed stamped envelope. Also, if you think the picture is priceless make sure you have its negative so that it can be reproduced if it is lost in the mail. The last statistic I read in regard to loss of mail is that the postal service manages to lose about 1 letter out of every 1000. Applying Murphy's Law to this, you can bet that the one lost letter will be the one bearing your picture, not the piece of junk mail inviting you to play the lottery in the Republic of Congo.
3. When do I get my free calendars?
As soon as they're printed. Naturally, I need 12 photographs before I begin printing them.
4. I don't want some cyber-stalker harassing me. Can you keep me anonymous?
Of course. In such a case I'll use a fictitious name and omit your location.
5. I want to be famous, and I want to make it easy for people of the opposite sex (or producers or agents, etc.) to contact me.
That's fine. Along with your picture I'll include a short blurb about you, including contact information. For example: "When Dan isn't saving lives in the ER, he enjoys skiing, traveling, boating, and meeting intelligent, attractive women who share his interests. Contact Dan at firstname.lastname@example.org."
6. My picture is blurry. Will you use it?
7. Can I submit more than one picture?
Yes. That will increase the chance that I'll use at least one of the pictures.
8. There are people in the photograph besides myself. What do I do?
9. I have another question that you haven't addressed.
I'll answer it. Contact me via this page:
