Photographer poses naked in ghost photos in an apparent bid to get more money from photographers posing for photographs in the wild.
In his latest book, The Photographic Pose, photographer Mark Wahlberg says he started selling poses for photographs and posing for images of himself in 2006.
But he says it didn’t take long for photographers to start demanding a fee for doing these photos, which would be a large part of his earnings.
He says the prices were astronomical.
In one case, Wahlburg said he paid $2,000 for a “photographic pose”.
In another, he paid for a photograph taken in his backyard with his dog.
Wahlberger said he used to earn $1,000 a day, but now, he estimates he earns about $1.5 million a year.
The price of his photographs ranges from $300 to $800, depending on the location and the size of the shoot.
And while Wahlberts main concern is for photographers posing in his photos, he also takes on other freelance projects.
In 2013, he launched his own website, The Pose Project, which is dedicated to offering free “photography” and posing photography to anyone who is interested in it.
The site features more than 20 free photography poses that can be taken by anyone, including professional photographers, celebrities, musicians and even teenagers.
A free photo has also been published on The Pose Studio, a new website that includes WahlBERTS own photos and other personal material, including his photos.
The Pose studio, which has over 30 million users worldwide, is Wahlberts only commercial venture.
The company also offers a subscription service to its clients, which includes a 30-day free trial.
A small company based in Florida, the Pose Studio also has a mobile app, but it has yet to launch.
Waisbberg has told TIME that the “problem is not a lack of people doing it, the problem is the people doing this for free.”
He says he has seen the demand from people who are “just looking for a way to make money.”
Wahlauberts most successful project is his “crown jewel” — his “Pose of the Year” photo.
In the photo, Waisberg stands on a rock, poses, takes photos and poses for the rest of the year.
He told TIME in 2013 that he had hoped to make $3 million by doing the pose for this year’s photo.
Wachs photo is now the most-viewed photo on The Poses website, which also features several other photos of Wahlbers own.
The photo is so popular that it was included in the book, but he says he does not expect the money he makes from it to cover the costs of the photo.
“I would like to see it become a tourist attraction,” Wahlbeck said.
“People will want to come and see the pictures.”
Wachsprecher said that he is looking forward to “a few more years of working with this incredible company and doing something different.”
But he admits that he cannot guarantee that his clients will continue to take the photos he is offering.
“We don’t have any guarantees that they will come back,” Wachschrecher told TIME.
