Whether or not you're considering approaching model agencies, these shoots are designed to give you a great set of professional modelling portfolio photos. No experience necessary.
— Are the images really all included?
Yes! Almost every other studio and photographer charges you per photo in addition to the shoot, meaning that end up spending hundreds of pounds more than you thought. All of my prices include all the photos we take, so there's nothing extra to pay on the day.
— What about a make-up artist?
I do have a separate Makeover section, but if it's important that the photos feel like 'you', then it's much better to keep it natural and do your own make-up. This also means the shoot is half the price it would otherwise be! Agencies also much prefer minimal make-up.
— What happens on the day?
When you arrive, we'll have a quick chat about what photo styles and ideas would best suit you and your needs. We'll do some warm-up shots to get you comfortable in front of the camera, and then proceed with the shoot.
— 100+ photos seems a lot...
Part of the magic of good photography is taking many variations of any one pose so that you have options when choosing ones to use.
— Can you help with agencies?
There are a handful of reputable, accredited model agencies out there and a whole lot of dodgy ones that make all their money from the girls themselves instead of getting you work. If you're considering sending your photos to agencies, I'm very happy to offer free impartial advice throughout the shoot, and will tell you how to avoid the bad agencies and 'modelling platforms' and also how best to approach the legitimate ones.
— My friend and I both want to do a shoot...
If there are two of you, I do a combined package that works out much cheaper for you than two separate shoots. It's a hour longer than my Standard package and is the equivalent of doing the Standard package each because I can be photographing one of you while the other is changing - it's more efficient to alternative outfits. So that shared package is £310 total (just £155 each), and that includes all the photos plus you can each pick 5 for professional editing. We can also do some photos together if you like.
— Do you do child model portfolios?
I don't do any shoots for babies or children under 10, I'm afraid. It's a different set of skills and isn't what I'm good at. I can recommend a great child and family photographer though - please ask.
— I have another question...
Please see my information page here which has my studio address and answers to all the questions people usually ask! And feel free to contact me any time; I'm very happy to help answer any questions you have.
