Feb 2016 UPDATE: The recent, tragic and unexpected death of a famous and experienced model, likely related to a fall during a shoot has forced me to consider the risk and reward of this " hobby" of mine. Even with hold-harmless statements in Agreements, I'd still feel terrible if involved in such a tragedy. As of now, I'm halting my work. Perhaps I'll return to activity one day. Be careful out there!
I've been doing this for several years now, always learning. I won't attempt to label or categorize my skill level, look and make your own decision. There are years worth of MM references listed below, All listed, none omitted regardless of experience.
Because most of my work is 18+, I will not work with minors, no exceptions. I generally only shoot when traveling to minimize day job conflicts.
I do this as an creative outlet. That being said, I expect models to behave professionally from initial contact, thru post-shoot. I expect industry standard things like releases, proof of age and professionalism, including saying NO if uninterested at any point during negotiations. I am admittedly OCD about ironing out details before a shoot. No need in surprises. The following will need to be settled by the end of negotiations:
-Appointment: e.g. date,min length (hrs) . Start time
-Compensation: e.g. $123 or Trade & terms
-Genre: e.g. Mix of lingerie and implied nudes
-Copyrights: e.g. photographer, model purchased, model licensed
-Wardrobe/MUA: e.g. Model
-Set: e.g. Photographer provided at Acme a Enterprises
Age Verification: Photo taken of valid photo ID indicating DOB. ID numbers covered for security
Escorts:Meet and Greet OK, prefer not during shoot unless needed to assist model with wardrobe/setup
Unless otherwise cast, I am generally only interested in paid work. My rates are very reasonable and negotiable. If I have a specific shoot in mind,I will pay for models that meet the needs of the casting. If a model has a great concept, I'm open to discussing a trade.
The rest remains negotiable and in the details.
