Please bring an external drive or laptop if possible. It’s the easiest way to give you your pics after our shoot.
I get asked quite a bit if it’s customary to tip the make up artist and while it’s not mandatory, it certainly goes a long way. I’ve seen tips rage anywhere from $50 to $200. Again, this is not mandatory.
While we have select pieces of wardrobe available at the studio it would be prohibitively difficult to travel with. As a result, we ask models bring all their own wardrobe. It’s a good idea to bring more than you think you’ll need. It’s good to have options.
Please arrive to the shoot with clean, dry hair and no make up. All make up and hair will be provided for you.
Location shoots are closed private sets, we ask you refrain from bringing friends or family as a courtesy to other models.
From the day of your shoot, you have 365 days to select your edits. Simply email me (firstname.lastname@example.org) the file numbers of your selects.
Please be sure to email me your mobile number, and any names/aliases you may go by. (You would be surprised by how often we receive deposits from maiden/married names while models message using other names or aliases). Please also let me know any/all names we may expect to hear from you with.
Other things to bring with you to the shoot; Robe, Toothbrush and paste, Nude thong, No-show socks, Nude and black heels, and or props you would like to shoot with. (Please advise in advance if the prop is excessive in size).
Eyelashes will be provided however, if you have clip in extensions and choose to wear them for your shoot, please have them in when you arrive.
A little bit of color also always looks good on camera so if you are tanned great, if not you may want to do a spray tan, however do not think stage or competition dark. An even nice golden glow is best.
Wardrobe suggestions : FITNESS (simple sports bra, booty shorts, tank top etc .Please bring heels as they help to bring out your legs even when shooting from the knee up) LINGERIE if you would like, SWIMWEAR, or CASUAL, which could be tank and jeans and/or underwear.
You will receive all of your pictures before you leave. Your pictures are yours and you may use them as you please.*(For personal use only)
You get to leave with all your pics in hi-res at the end of your shoot.
Shoots are not transferable.
Most models are amazed at how fast the time seems to fly by. I can get the desired effect / look within the first few pictures. The benefit of this is you get a high percentage of usable images in a very short amount of time. In fact, there is never more than a minute or two spent on adjusting lighting, if even that. You may also have noticed how many images are circulated on social media that have not been edited. The images do not require much, (if any) editing to the final image. Another reason you get a high percentage of useable images.
