About the Shoot
Before the shoot
Before the shoot takes place, I like to talk to you on the phone, it’s good to go over the details in person, I can explain more about the shoot and we can confirm a time and place etc. If you have any questions, you can ask. Also if you have any images you are after, please send them through to me, it gives me the chance to see exactly what you are after.
I do require a non-refundable deposit before any shoot. Once we have confirmed a date and location, details will be sent to you.
During the shoot
On the day of the shoot, I like to sit down first and have a chat (hopefully over a cuppa) and we can have a look at the Release Form, I like to make sure you understand it all and you can ask any questions you might have.
The shoot itself I try to make it as fun as possible. I’m a big believer in ‘If you’re smiling, your body is smiling‘, so even if you don’t want your face shown in the finished images, I’ll still get a smile out of you. I will help you relax and pose in the most natural way possible.
I can understand that you might be nervous, that you don’t know how to pose, you can leave all that to me. I’ve worked with lots of people, from professional models to ladies who are very nervous in front of a camera. To be honest, if you don’t know how to pose, that makes things easier, when you have to think about posing, it’s never that natural, so I will give you direction, how to stand, how to breathe (yes, that makes a difference), how to lay etc. You only have to relax and enjoy the shoot…I’m the one that has to do all the work.
When we have finished the shoot, I will put everything on a USB stick for you, so you have a copy of everything I have taken.
After the shoot
I will then edit what I think are the best images. I do not overly ‘photoshop’ them, I don’t make your skin look like plastic. The editing is very light, bringing up the shadows, bringing down highlights etc. I will put it through Photoshop to blur out your face or tattoos, but that’s it. I will get the images looking as best I can and getting you looking the sexiest you’ve ever been.
Since you will have everything I have taken, if there are specific images you would like me to edit, you only need to ask and it will be done for you, at no extra cost.
You will usually get between 30 – 50 images per hours worth of shoot, delivered to you within 7 days, on a private server with a password or via Dropbox. You will have a full portfolio to choose from, not just half a dozen images, but a full set of everything we have taken on the day.
Photos stay on the server/Dropbox for 6 months. After that time, if you need me to upload them again, there is a small fee.
