Dreamphoto / DP1 has successfully moved to Fort Mill SC. We are just over the border from Charlotte and only 9 miles away from the old studio.
We will be fully operational by the end of November.
Hello and thank you for checking out my portfolio.
My name is Bernard Schnacke and I am a professional photojournalist.
Some important points before a shoot:
A standard model release of the Professional Photographers Association of America (PPAA) needs to be signed and we need to see a valid picture ID.
Escorts / Chaperones are welcomed and encouraged on the premises in order to make you feel more secure and comfortable. They can watch TV in our showroom and can check in with the model at any time.
We encourage you to check our reference list and also Google the business and the photographers name.
YOU should do this ALL the time before going somewhere and let friends and family know where you are going, who you are meeting with and what you are doing.
The world is a scary place and we want to make sure that you are safe......at least when you at OUR studio.
I find it amazing how many MM members are reading e-mails without responding at all.
A simple yes, no, maybe...or "leave me alone" would do.
I think this just common courtesy. The other unbelievable fact is that many models or newbies are not checking their e-mails for days, if not for weeks and then are surprised if they missed a casting call or even a planned photo session.
I will NOT book any photo sessions without a contact telephone number!!!
ModelMayhem has a neat feature that not many people seem to be aware of: You can have a copy of the MM mail sent automatically to your regular e-mail or your phone. That way you do not have to log in to your account on a daily base and you do not miss any important mail. Check it out and set it up.
MOST IMPORTANT: YOU need to reconfirm with Dreamphoto one day prior by phone, e-mail, text or carrier pigeon.... otherwise the session will be canceled automatically.
A very special -THANK YOU-to all the great models that have made my portfolio and my business what it is today.
As I am traveling a lot, it is important to plan your session with me as early as possible.
Please read the comments below or contact the models I worked with in the past...word of mouth is the best advertising.
Greetings and enjoy my port
