Sadly there seems to be a growing number of companies who prey on aspiring models, with promises of fantastic images and/or guaranteed work modelling for top brands. They carry out photoshoots for free and then impose a significant fee for a handful of edited images, often running into hundreds of pounds. My fee structure below has been created to keep everything as clear as possible.
A portfolio building session with me can either take place in my home where I convert a rooms into pop-up studios, or you can have an outdoor shoot on location. You may even prefer a mix of both over several sessions, in order to have a series of images that show a variety of looks. Specific styles that can be covered (depending on location chosen) include:
Portraits and head shots
Concealed topless/nude (in this you would be posing topless or nude but 'private parts' would not be seen in the images due to the angle of the shot or your pose)
A typical home studio session could involve shots in front of a selection of pop-up backgrounds of your choosing, using studio lighting. Posing guides are always on hand to help models who are new to the industry.
An outdoor location shoot is obviously weather dependent and the location itself. In an urban setting, we would aim to shoot in a number of different locations within a specific area, walking between locations. A rural shoot may involve a walk through the woods or similar.
All sessions involve extensive pre-shoot communications regarding shoot style, outfits, etc. possibly using Pinterest for the sharing of ideas where appropriate. Unfortunately, I am not able to provide a professional hair or makeup artist, so you would need to arrive for any shoot with this already done.
Please read my Terms and Conditions carefully before booking a shoot.
At my home:
£90: A session of one hour. Six retouched high-resolution digital images, with the option to purchase more at £8 per image.
£140: A session of two hours. Ten retouched high-resolution digital images, with the option to purchase more at £8 per image.
£160 A session of two hours. Ten retouched high-resolution digital images, with the option to purchase more at £8 per image. This also covers cost of my travel within a 30 mile radius of Bracknell if I am driving, or my train travel into London with a zone 1-6 travel card. For shoots outside this area an additional cost will be calculated and added to this rate.
Variations on all of the above can be discussed prior to the shoot. A 50% deposit required in advance to secure your booking, which is refundable if a minimum of one week’s cancellation notice is provided.
