Read Over The Shoot Preparation
The general information applies to all shoots.
We want to start off by saying we thank you for taking the time to read over the information below
and for giving us the opportunity to possibly work with you. Our photo shoots are unlike any other shoots.
We do multi-purpose shoots so we can help you maximize every business opportunity.
You can use your images from our shoot for your own portfolio, magazine submissions, business endeavors, your own business websites, or just to have new professional images of yourself or family.
The main goal is to shoot you exclusively and to help you generate revenue through your own business ventures or use the images to create more opportunities for yourself. We appreciate your time and we look forward to working with you soon.
Shoot Dates: TBA
Even if your city does not have a shoot date listed, still read over the details below.
General shoot times for all cities:
DAY 1: 3:30pm, 5:00pm, 6:30pm, 8:00pm, 9:30pm DAY 2: 8:00am, 9:30am
*Keep in mind, the times above are the general times. If we have already begun scheduling for the shoot then one of the times may not be available.
Do I shoot on 1 day or both days?
1 day! You can choose the date and time that best works for your schedule. If your not sure of your shoot time yet, then you can decide later on as it gets closer.
What is the theme for the shoot?
There is not one set theme for the entire shoot. Each shoot is different and is generally geared towards the clients shooting style. You will be able to see pic samples and select images that best fits your style of shooting.
How long is my shoot?
Your shoot will be 1.5 hrs long if you shoot 2-3 outfits. If you shoot 4 outfits your shoot will be 2 hrs long. If you shoot 5 outfits your shoot will be 2.5 - 3 hrs long. Shoot times will be adjusted accordingly.
Will I be shooting solo or in a group?
All shoots are solo unless it is a group shoot. So make sure your on time, dressed, and ready to shoot.
How many outfits should I bring?
We recommend you bring 3-5 outfits. Even though you may not shoot all 5 outfits, at least you will have some options. Down below we have a pic samples page link that has a variety of images that will help you get ready for the shoot.
Will a hair stylist, or make up artist be provided at the shoot?
We do not provide a hair stylist nor make-up artist. Our shoot slots are solely for the shoot. We always suggest getting your make up done before the shoot (ex. like at a MAC store, etc.) or if you have your own personal MUA they can always do it prior to the shoot, not during your shoot time! That way, you will have more time to shoot since you would be arriving with your makeup already done. We want you to look and feel like yourself. So if you do not wear much makeup or any at all, then stick with that for the shoot. At least that way you will be more pleased with the final results of your images.
Can I bring props or music to the shoot?
Both are allowed at the shoot. Bring whatever you need that will help your shoot be a success. Whether it's a bar stool, a fan, music, a speaker box, nacho cheese doritos (j/k) etc. The more props the better.
Can I bring an escort to the shoot?
You can bring 1 escort to the shoot. Make sure your escort is not a distraction for you.
*Children are not allowed at the shoot unless your child is actually shooting.
Will the shoot be indoor or outdoors or both?
Both! We select a nice location that allows us to do indoor and outdoor photography. So just know there will be an indoor location where you (and any escort you choose to bring-optional) can change attire, shoot, etc. We can assure you your shoot will be great and you will have plenty of variety displayed in your shoot. If it is raining, snowing, etc. we will still shoot! The weather will not be a factor for us.
When will I receive the shoot location and where will the shoot be held at?
The location will be sent via text from the agent you have been working with 7 days prior to the shoot date. You must have already selected a shoot date and time, and have already signed up for the shoot. The shoot location is generally within 7-10 miles from the main airport.
How do I receive my images?
You will receive all your raw (unedited) images via dropbox. Once you have downloaded all your images, you will then need to select the images you want to be edited. The edits are then uploaded to your dropbox as well. Edits take 4-5 business days to complete. If you do not have have a dropbox account, you would need to signup for a free account at dropbox.com. Once you have done that you will be able to preview and receive all your raw images and edits, after your balance is zero.
Is there a cost for me to shoot? Yes. There is a fee to shoot. Great part is our shoot rates and payment plans are extremely reasonable. We have weekly payment plans that start at $39/wk and monthly payment plans that start at $116/mo. Our payment plans are set up on a 3-4 monthly basis. So you can continue on paying on the balance after the shoot is over for the next 3-4 months afterwards. Payments are set up on auto debit via PayPal. Payment plans are available in regards to how many outfits you choose to shoot. More information will be discussed via phone when we contact you so you can see what works best for you.
What all comes with my photo shoot?
We believe in quality vs quantity. We generally shoot 50-65 images for each outfit. Your shoot comes with head shots (for each outfit), glamour shots, unlimited images, photo editing, and a $50-$75 future credit. Plus its a full tax write off. So as long as you write it off on your taxes, you will get the money you invested in the shoot as a full refund.
Ultimately you are investing in yourself. With you being a business professional in your field, these images will create more opportunities for you and also create more revenue for you in the long run. Not to mention it is a full tax write off so you can write it off and get it all back when you file your taxes. Invest in your business, yourself, and reap the benefits!
1. Practice posing in your attire. Get in the mirror and practice. Even if you do not have your attire but have something that is similar, then put it on and practice. It helps so much when you can see what you look like and know how to pose in it.
2. Remove any visible tags from your attire. Bring any accessories and little things you may need like bobby pins, rubber bands, hair clip, brush, comb, scissors, etc.
3. Make sure you have everything you need at least 48 hrs before!
Day of the shoot:
Please arrive in your 1st outfit at least 15 mins prior to your shoot time. If someone will be dropping you off, then please make sure you have your transportation arrangement in order at least 48 hrs in advance. Our shoot schedules are tight! So if you are late, then you will have less time to shoot. You will not be able to reschedule for a later date and time if there are any last minute changes on your end. We are in town for a limited time so you need to make sure you have everything in order to insure we have a successful shoot.
