Ideas - First of all I believe a successful photo shoot should be a collaboration of ideas between the Photographer and Model. To ensure I can give you the type of image you are after, I require seeing a selection of sample photos that you like. This can either be done by sending them through to me prior to the shoot – or worst case scenario, save them to your phone so I can view them on the day.
Spray Tanning – Spray Tanning done right will look amazing in the photos and will give the model an extra boost in confidence! However, it can also be a retouchers nightmare if there are blotchy patches - particularly around the hands and feet! If you want to spray tan prior to the shoot - my advice is to err on the side of caution and go for a light tan with smooth skin tones. Besides there are many ways I can aid your tan in post-production.
What to Bring? – The photos always look best when the model is wearing something they feel comfortable in. Most of my work is Bikini / Lingerie - however this is not by any means mandatory. Some other items to consider are favourite pieces of jewellery and a selection of heels. Water and snack food also come in handy!
Turnaround – After the shoot I will upload ALL the photos into Dropbox, and send you the link. I always endeavour to have this done within 48 hours. You are then able to download the album to your PC or Laptop. Once you have been through the photos I will ask you to quote the file numbers of the photos you would like to have edited. Turnaround for editing normally takes 2 weeks.
Don’ts – There are a couple of don’ts I insist upon. I don’t shoot anyone under the age of 18 years and I do not condone the consumption of alcohol or illegal drugs at any of my shoots.
Fun – Most of all I want you to have fun and ensure your experience with me is a memorable one. I look forward to working with you to create some amazing images we can both be proud of!
