My prices are reasonable. Don’t ask me to do anything for free. If you expect to get anything like you see in my portfolio, then I expect to be paid … no trades.
I am not opposed to doing “test” shoots. Testing is the industry term for a free or paid shoot between a model and photographer to see how well they do for possible future work. Every model and photographer in the industry must do this from time to time regardless of experience level or status. It has less to do with building a portfolio and more to do with staying current and fresh. A test shoot for me means: no makeup artist, no concept, no stylization. A model shows up with a few simple outfits and we come up a shoot from there with no expectations. I DO NOT do free test shots for just anyone. I will contact you if I'm interested in doing a shoot. Otherwise, I will be happy to quote you my rates.
