Hot Enterprises USA
Milwaukee, Wisconsin, US
Thank you very much for taking the time to review our portfolio.
Hot Enterprises USA specializes in womenâs wardrobe fashions including hosiery and shoes. To date, we have worked with over 75+ models featured here on Model Mayhem. The purpose of each and every photo session we conduct is to capture the perfect image to represent the products we sell here in the United States and around the world.
** IMPORTANT INFORMATION FOR THE MODELS THAT WE CONTACT **
If we have approached you to model our products there is something about your portfolio we like and consider to be a good fit for the images we are attempting to capture. Please take the time to respond to our offer whether you are interested or not ASAP.
What our shoots are like:
Models who have not worked with us before often ask us what to expect from our photo sessions or describe the shoot itself. Our photo sessions are always 100% professional yet we like to keep them light and fun at the same time. We keep the sessions light hearted and fun on purpose. If you are not having fun or the session is too serious it will impact images in a negative way.
The images we are attempting to capture fall somewhere between trendy fashion and glamour in nature. We are looking for classy, elegant, and trendy images that showcase our products. We want the images to be sexy and suggestive however, the images will not exceed a rating of PG13. We are looking for images that have creative and unique backgrounds, settings, and themes. At this time we are trying to move away from plain back drops or images that look like a catalogue. We prefer images that are from head to toe and feature the entire model in the image. The images that are taken during all photo sessions would be something you would feel comfortable showing to anyone.
Most of our photo sessions are booked in 2 hour blocks of time. This is for two hours of actual shooting in front of the camera. There will be extra time required as part of the shoot. The extra time is needed for signing releases, filling out forms, hair/makeup touch ups, and wardrobe changes. Most models finish a 2 hour shoot under 3 hours.
ONE POINT WE WANT TO MAKE PERFECTLY CLEAR TO ALL MODELS: Our shoots **NEVER** involve nudity of any kind. Our photographers will **NEVER** ask you to pose nude, implied nude, artistic nude, fetish, or topless for any of our sessions. In addition, our photographers will never place you in poses, positions, or settings that will compromise your integrity. You also will **NEVER** be forced to model anything you are not 100% comfortable with. From that perspective you are 100% in control of the shoot. If any of the above occurs during one of our shoots please end the session and report it to us ASAP.
Hair and Makeup:
Unless otherwise noted, we are requesting that all models do their own hair and makeup at this time. Hair and makeup should be trendy and highlight your natural beauty. It should define you at your absolute best. Ideally, your hair should be done as if you were standing up in a wedding, going to prom, or attending any other special event/occasion. You hair should look stunning yet natural with the right amount of hair products. Makeup should look natural and not be over done. The biggest mistake most models make is to overdo the amount of makeup they use. Lately, the problem has been way too much eye shadow/eyeliner. Our tip here is to keep it natural and use makeup only to highlight your natural beauty.
What you need to bring with you to a photo session:
We will be providing all hosiery and shoes for your photo session. The purpose of the shoot is to get images of the products we sell so we will be providing these items.
We are requesting that models bring their own wardrobe for all photo sessions. This would include new and trendy dresses and top/skirt combos ideal for modeling hosiery. Anything above the knee is perfect. Bring an assortment of colors ideal to shoot with an assortment of hosiery (pantyhose, stockings, and tights). If you have a costume or non see through lingerie that you think would be ideal for this type of photo session and you are comfortable modeling it, please bring it along. We like outfits that are sexy yet elegant and tasteful at the same time. This is your chance to show us your best and that should be your guide when selecting outfits. The more outfits you bring the better.
All compensation will be outlined and confirmed prior to booking your photo session. No exceptions.
Unless otherwise noted at the start of each photo session, all models we select and schedule to shoot for us will get to keep the hosiery and shoes they are asked to model. These are all brand new products. In addition to the products, our photographers will provide images from the shoot to you for portfolio use. You also will be able to add a commercial shoot to your list of modeling accomplishments.
We are already offering a substantial compensation package as is to the models that agree to work with us. However, some of the photo sessions we conduct also have a paid element of compensation. In some cases, we also will consider travel expenses for models traveling greater than 50 miles one way to shoot with us. We will notify you if pay or travel expenses will be added to your compensation prior to booking your shoot.
We understand that for most models this will be the first time working with us and our photographer. For some models, this may be your very first time ever doing a photo session. Your safety and security is always our first concern. For this reason escorts are always welcome provided that they do not interfere with the shoot or obstruct the photographers work in any way. We recommend that you chose an escort that you are 100% comfortable modeling in front of that has the patience to sit through an entire photo session. Based on years of experience we have found that female friends, sisters, aunts, and mothers make the best escorts. Jealous boyfriends, brothers that get bored easily, and impatient fathers typically make the worst escorts for a photo session. You know your situation and your options better than we do. Please keep all of this in mind when selecting your escort. We ask that you tell us if you intend to bring an escort and who the escort is prior to the date of the shoot.
About booking a shoot:
When booking a shoot with our photographer, please pick a date and time you know that you can keep. Photo sessions require a significant amount time and expense to arrange, book, plan, and set up to fully utilize the entire time we have available. No shows and last minute cancellations are very frustrating. There is no way for us to fill time slots and recover in these circumstances.
We are asking that if for any reason you need to cancel the shoot, that you notify us ASAP no later than 48 hours (2 full days) prior to a scheduled shoot. Models that do not extend us this courtesy will **not** be called back or rescheduled for another time. They will also be removed from consideration for future photo sessions and projects.
