Are you a hot ER doctor, nurse, tech, paramedic, or EMT?
Do you have a photo of
some dramatic, poignant, or otherwise memorable ER moment?

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 dan@insertyouraddresshere.com."

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?

  • If they agree to let me use the photo without further compensation (you can split your compensation with them if you wish), have them submit the following release in writing:  "I, __________________(insert their name here), of __________________ (insert their current complete address), hereby permanently grant permission to Kevin Pezzi, MD to use this photograph in his ER calendar or any marketing materials for it."  Then have the person sign and date it.  If the person is under 18, his parent or guardian must also sign.
  • If more than one person appears in the photo, make a photocopy of the photograph.  On the photocopy, indicate who is who.

9. I have another question that you haven't addressed.

I'll answer it.  Contact me via this page: www.myspamsponge.com/doctor.php

ContactMeFree is a dream come true for anyone involved in online dating. If you have your profile posted on a personals site but don't pay for a membership, you know how limited you are in terms of being able to send or receive messages. You probably assume that those limitations disappear if you pay for a membership. Guess what? You are still far more limited than you realize. Frankly, if you knew how limited you were, you would be furious that the personals site was charging you $20 to $50 per month and still keeping the shackles on you! The person who created ContactMeFree was so outraged by those limitations that he decided to do something about it. So he did!

You know that writer's block you get when you sit down to write the essay portion of your personal profile for online dating? And you know the difficulty you have trying to think of a catchy headline? Well, MyProfileWriter allows you to create a profile essay and headline without typing, just by clicking!
