    Sorry if you receive this twice.

    We are doing a photography project and wanted to know if you would
    like to volunteer as a contributing volunteer photographer. We are
    collecting an array of portraits from different photographers around the
    world. The goal is to portray the idea of beauty in women within different
    cultures. We are asking each contributing photographer to submit 1-10
    portraits of women between ages 18-32 which are considered to be beautiful
    in their local culture. If the photos you submit are accepted into the
    project it will give you great exposure in the international photography

    We need a photographer in your local area. That is why we are emailing
    you. If this is something that interests you respond with your name, phone number, email, and country you will be shooting in and I will give
    you more info.
