f you would like to “have a go” at modelling, then I am quite happy to have you along for a studio session.
As you will have seen my portfolio you will be aware of the styles I work in. I don’t do standard portraits and clothed shoots that you can get done at the local high street studio. I want to find the other you!! The VAMP-DOMINATRIX or HARLOT etc you can be girlfriend/wife or mother etc all day!!! Every day!!! You may already have some ideas about your alter ego or you may have seen something in my portfolio or a book that you would liker to emulate, that’s great!!
We then talk and plan a direction before the shoot, you can phone -email-or call in person.
Like many things we do successfully, preparation is the key factor. During the planning you also get to know me, and then it is less daunting when you turn up on “the day”.
In today’s advertising led society women’s perception of their attractiveness has been eroded by the projection of the fashion models anorexic bodies as the desirable standard and “real” women therefore are put off doing anything as glamorous as a photo shoot. I can assure you none of the women in my portfolio are professional models, they are normal girlfriends, wives, mothers and grandmothers!!!!!!!
Age should not be an excuse to not “have a go” if you are 18 years and onward you are fine I don’t set an upper limit.
Size should not be an excuse not to “have a go” whether you are size 8 or size 18 you are “woman”, lets project that.
All women I am sure would love to be a “femme fatale “just once but are afraid they may be ridiculed ,its time to have a go and if we don’t get it right the first time we can bin em and do it again.
You are welcome to bring some one with you but I am not into placating insecure or jealous boyfriends/husbands and it makes me uncomfortable when I see the model constantly looking for approval instead of expressing herself, so I would prefer you to bring a female friend who will support and encourage or even make tea or coffee.
If you don’t have some one who fits that description my partner is more than happy to assist, it is all about being relaxed and having a good experience and after those initial butterflies have settled down you will be pleasantly surprised how easy it is to be that “other lady”.
There is no charge for the photo shoot, it is all digital now so there are no films to buy or processing to pay for, I use Nikon pro cameras and big quality enlargements are possible, you can also view the images as the shoot progresses on my laptop. I will also provide you with a CD with all the images taken on the shoot.
If you are happy for me to use your images on my website portfolio I would then provide you with some framed enlargements of your choice. If you prefer not to do that I would ask you to pay for them (cost of material only).
Should you be looking to make some pocket money from modelling I am happy to pay the normal rates but I would expect you sign a model release and apart from the CD of images any other prints etc would have to be paid for.
