I have a studio in Rockwall, TX. I also do location work, so let me know if you have any ideas you want to add to your portfolio.
Here are some ground rules:
~Escorts- If it makes you feel more comfortable, bring one. One. Don't bring an entourage and do not bring a boyfriend that is going to try to run the shoot. Once an escort is in the way, they will be asked to leave. If this is a problem, you will be asked to leave. Escorts are expected to help with the shoot or stay in the reception area.
~Payment- First of all, I DO NOT PAY MODELS! If I have a client looking for a model to be in a shoot, they will pay the model. That is the way to get paid. Most of the shoots set up through Model Mayhem will be test shoots or TFCD shoots. Once I have worked with you I will know whether or not I can recommend you when someone comes looking for a model. I can not recommend models I have not worked with because I do not know if you will show up on time, or even show up at all. So let's shoot! It may turn into something good for you down the road. This is my full time job. I have equipment, insurance, mortgage for studio, and other expenses. Models are not one of them. Rates for a shoot are normally $125 an hour and that does not include prints or files. I will help you build your portfolio if your look is something I can add to mine as well. All TFCD are for 10 retouched images.
~Late Arrival/No Show- If you do not show up and do not call, do not expect to ever be asked to come out or get booked again. Completely unacceptable. If you are going to be more than 5-10 minutes late, call. Just to let me know you are still on your way. Otherwise I will assume you are a No Show.
I try to return the favor for comments and tags if possible.
