1. Chaperon: 1 chaperon is OK but they cannot be there looking to learn something (eg. photographers/students/your dad or boyfriend looking to learn/etc.) or worse make comments and suggestions. Their only job is to be a fly on the wall.
2. Files and Pay: If I pay you, then it's unlikely that you'll get images since you're already compensated. If you want images, then we'll set up a trade and this is your compensation.
3. Image Policy: For trades, 1 retouched and print ready image of each clothing change and/or shooting situation/set will be provided. We don't give out the entire photo shoot nor unpolished images.
4. Copyright: You get reproduction and display rights. You can use your images for your portfolio, website and for your agency book. You can't sell them to a stock agency or use them for any commercial venture without first contacting me and to arrange for a profit share.
I teach professional lighting workshops via non-profits. Please look up the Professional Photographers of America, Professional Photographers of California and the Professional Photographers of the Greater Bay Area websites for my next group workshops.
One on one mentoring is available on a case by case* basis.
*I'm not able to mentor anyone who is within a 50 mile radius of my studio.
