Looking for a snake to borrow to use for a photo shoot with a model

I am a professional photographer in Toronto & I am looking for a snake to use for a photo shoot with a female model. I want to do a shot similar to the famous one taken by Richard Avedon when he photographed Natassja Kinski in the American Photo March 1982 issue. Any help or suggestions would be appreciated. Samples of it in the link

My work can be seen at this link

How experienced is your model with reptiles? If she is inexperienced I should inform you that this may not be something you want to do. If you are looking for a snake on the internet you will have no idea of it's disposition, and risk injury to your model and the animal.

Just a thought, and by the way I have a large burmese python that is absolutely beautiful, but if you want his face I need some $$$$!! LOL

I agree. I am looking for either a boa or a python only. At same time, I don't want the snake to be too long or thick, since it becomes too heavy for the model.

Hey I'm a former model (how else could I support myself in a country where I don't speak the language)! LOL

Bandula is almost 14 feet long and probably weighs more than your model... LOL =)

imagesbygary what you need is a 6-8 foot bomb proof albino burm. manigable size for smaller people and temperment are usually pretty good.
