We are a family company producing a large volume of business websites for companies around the country. We also provide photography for the firearms industry and produce Guns and Lace, an online magazine whose mission is to empower women and support the Second Amendment
Our style is sexy to artistic, conservative to edgy. We are passionate and serious about our work, and your safety is always our first priority. Our shoots are a lot of fun, not just a modeling shoot but an adventure. We don't just hire models, we collaborate with each individual to create the best images and videos possible for them. Please bring your ideas with you and lets create. We are stronger as a team and together we can make great things happen.
We just recently moved our studio to the beautiful resort town of Friday Harbor, located on San Juan Island in Washington State. We are just a fast Clipper ferry ride away from Seattle or a car ferry ride out of Anacortes, Wa.
Our studio is our family, Pat is a Vancouver Film School grad, photographer and Photoshop guru. Rick is a marketing manager, web consultant and photographer, CJ is our MUA/Stylist and Jessica is the Guns and Lace site Admin and Miss Jan 2012. All of us hold NRA instructor certs and have years of shooting experience. Jessica has her own training company at www.GunsandLaceTraining.com

We also produce video for the Guns and Lace YouTube channel at http://www.youtube.com/gunsandlace1
Models for feature shoots for Guns and Lace must be pro 2nd Amendment and have firearms experience or skills. or willing to commit time to learn firearm safety and shooting skills from us. Guns and Lace photo shoots are paid and include a studio shoot and a day of candid photos and gun time at the range including ammo, firearm rental, and certified instructor time. We feature one model each month, compensation for featured Guns and Lace girls is $180.00 total for the studio session and some candid video and stills while at the gun range with the instructor the next day. This project is not about the money it is about empowering women, supporting the 2nd amendment and also always remembering to support the troops. Are you up for it?
We have professional gear and rigs, but often end up renting props, costumes, and making advance schedule commitments to be in the studio. Please don't accept a shoot from us unless you are able to commit to make the shoot as scheduled and can be on time. We have a reputation for always making deadline and if a model doesn't show up or takes another gig after committing to us it puts us in a bind. Transportation assistance is possible.
If we friend you, we are interested in working with you on this or other projects. Commercial model releases are required for all photo and video work.
We also accept paid shoots if you like our style and would like to be photographed with firearms in a manner that the industry will respect. There is nothing worse than gun photos of a model who does not know the correct way to hold a firearm. Both Hollywood and the firearm industry are always looking for women who know how to shoot. Our rates are reasonable, ask us. We don't do much in the way of TFP, but you can always ask, we are friendly and happy to explore ideas. If you own a tank, you are a sure thing for a TFP session with us
We are fine with you bringing an escort until you get to know us, female escorts who can assist with hair and makeup are preferred,. However, in all cases if you bring an escort they must be patient and not have someplace to be. We are a professional organization with work to get out, we do not have time for drama. We are happy to provide references.
