Wanted Models: Saabat Soorat Sikh Males For PhotoShoot For International Magazine





Photographer Timur Celikdag is currently casting 16-28 year-old male Sikh individuals for a photoshoot for an internationally renowned magazine.

It will be shot in a photography studio in central London and we will be happy to pay the model a little fee and all of your expenses for the day. We are prepared to fly them in from abroad if they do not live in the United Kingdom.

The portraits will be in the magazine and their name will clearly be credited.

They will also receive a digital file of their photos as well as a high quality print for them to keep. Also, the picture will not be
used for any commercial purposes and will only be published in this particular magazine.

The shoot will be on 1 day in late January, and on the same day they will be styled to go with the concept of the shoot. They will be wearing a designer suit and they will not have to cut their hair, clip or shave or change their appearance at all. Wearing a turban will fit in with the theme and is what we are looking for.

The project will basically be 6 pages of portraits in a fashion context, involving 1 Sikh guy wearing a designer suit. The portraits will be quite simple and easy, no experience is necessary. There won't be any text to go with the shoot apart from the credits with the model's name in of course.

Timur Celikdag is a renowned, award-winning photographer ( His previous subjects include Leona Lewis, Oasis, Sebastien Chabal, and Karl Lagerfeld amongst others.

The magazine is distributed worldwide and ranks amongst the best fashion magazines in the world. Over the years it has established a reputation as a training ground for fresh talent, featuring celebrities, music, art and fashion. Cover stars have included Jay Z, Shakira, P Diddy, Victoria Beckham, Lily Allen, Leona Lewis, Sienna Miller and Mariah Carey. I'm afraid we can only disclose the title of the magazine to our shortist of candidates.

If you are interested and meet the criteria, please send us your contact details to , as well as a couple of snap shots to the same email address ASAP.

Simran: Get into gear to participate in this photoshoot.

2: N. Singh (Canada), December 15, 2011, 9:35 PM.

Come on guys, go for it! Let the world see how sexy, smart and stylish Sardars really are ... just make sure they photograph you in a positive light, otherwise why not? How else is the world going to find out about you?

3: Baldev Singh (Bradford, United Kingdom), December 15, 2011, 10:24 PM.

A photo is worth a thousand words! Hope they'll find another Sikh super-cool model!

4: Jorawar SIngh (New Delhi, India), December 16, 2011, 8:46 AM.

This is an opportunity to once again show that a lion with his mane is more attractive.

5: Sarabjeet (India), December 16, 2011, 10:38 AM.

Last date of submitting? [EDITOR: The sooner the better. I suggest no later than the end of this month.]

6: Gurjeet Singh (Chandigarh, Punjab), December 16, 2011, 11:42 AM.

I compliment Timur for this wonderful idea. I'm sure he knows who we are. You have put a bracket on the age limit, otherwise with my salt-pepper beard I would have made a perfect model for his photography. Pity. Best of luck!

7: Jangbir Singh (Auckland, New Zealand), December 17, 2011, 4:21 AM.

Done ... Let's see how it goes.

8: Gurjeet Singh (Mumbai, India), December 19, 2011, 3:26 PM.

Sent the pics ... Waheguru ji kirpa karan sab te ...

11: Gary Sethi (¸Toronto, Ontario, Canada), December 23, 2011, 3:13 PM.

What a great opportunity to portray Sardars in a positive light. Do we email pics to you prior for approval? ÊDITOR: No, please send them directly to casting team, as directed.

12: S.S.N. (Belmont, MA, U.S.A.), December 30, 2011, 7:39 PM.

Sent mine too! One quick thought - I see here that a lot of us are interested. I would like to go one step further and ask my fellow Sardar veers - Guys, is there a way to organize or form a group within ourselves based on this hobby/ passion/ ambition? A platform to express thoughts, action-ize priorities. Perhaps the editor can facilitate such a discussion. Any takers?

13: Narinder Singh Sidhu (Middlesbrough, United Kingdom), January 03, 2012, 9:50 AM.

Best of luck to all. Wish each of you success!

14: Cham Kaur (Australia), January 04, 2012, 6:04 AM.

M son, 17, is interested.
