Please read my profile fully before contacting me!
I'm Gina Soden, I’m 25 and I'm based in Wokingham, Berkshire.
I’m a photographer with 5 year’s experience shooting models, families, happy couples.
I believe I have great people skills, and I definitely have some AWESOME locations up my sleeve.
I also have a studio in Crowthorne which I use regularly.
I love to shoot the female form, and being a female photograper, it's great to know the models feel very comfortable with me.
Normally I get an idea pre-shoot, but it develops as I shoot...
I love Cindy Shermans work, Helmut Newton, and the bright colours of David LaChappelle. I also love shooting film, so love the retro look.
Clients and models have described me as very friendly, and I love working in a team. I am always professional and will make sure the model is comfortable.
I describe myself as a peoples person and welcome friends to come along for support if need be.
I have unusual ideas and would love to explore them fully.
I am a creative person and appreciate good communication before a shoot to understand what the model requires of me, or vice versa.
Even if you have never modelled before, I can guarantee you will leave with images and advice that will really help you in the industry. If you want to update your portfolio with some unique work, then do not hesitate to contact me. I shoot most of my portfolio sessions on location, but I do have a studio available for use. I do ask all models to sign a release form
Taster session - 90 minutes/5 images on disc (fully edited)/ £175
Portfolio - Half day/10 images on disc (fully edited)/ £300*
The Experience - Full day/20 images on disc (fully edited)/ £500*
*Make up artist included
I have many locations available to shoot in, but I try to keep each shoot unique. I tend to use derelict spaces/old hospitals/rooftops/urban areas.
To further discuss your requirements, please don't hesitate to get in touch via my website, or drop me a message on here. Please let me know where you live, what type of shoot you wish to undertake (glamour/lingerie/fashion/swimwear/nude e.t.c) and what package you are interested in. Thank you!
I have had various pieces of work published, nationally and internationally and have lots of experience working with new models or experienced professionals.
If you would like to collaborate with me on a project or wish to shoot for a publication I will be pleased to hear from you.

MODELS PLEASE NOTE:
COPYRIGHT: If I am being paid for a shoot I assign copyright to the model but retain the right to use the images for my own self-promotion. Conversely if I am not being paid (upon the rare chance I may do a TF* shoot) I retain full copyright and allow models to use an agreed number of edited images for their self-promotion (e.g. profiles and other advertising)[/centre]
**I work in a team on a regular basis, I expect all participants to act professionally. I treat everyone with respect and expect the same back, there is to be no drama on my shoots.
If anyone has any concerns or problems, I wish for people to voice them before the end of the shoot!
