have prepared this website to answer some of the questions
that prospective models may have. Please take time
to look around! If you don't find an answer to your
question here, please feel free to contact
us for further information.
Do I need to be a professional model to qualify
for a photoshoot?
No, we photograph men, women and families without
any experience. The only requirements are:
have the ability to display emotion on demand
can follow instruction
are not camera-shy
do I get for the photoshoot?
We work on a TFCD (time for CD) basis with all of
our models. At the end of the shoot, you will receive
a CD containing all of the photo from the shoot. If
you would like, we can also provide you with CD of
edited photos (up to 20) about a week after the shoot
as well as those same photos as 4x6 prints.
much will the photoshoot cost me?
The photoshoot is absolutely FREE. Photography
agencies charge between $300 - $600 dollars for the
same service that we provide. The only thing that
we ask is that you sign a model release form. A model
release is a document which enables us to sell the
photos under a royalty free licence. You can read
the model release form by clicking
sort of photos will be taken during the photoshoot?
Generally, we shoot business, health, holiday and
lifestyle. We encourage our models to come up with
their own ideas prior to the shoot as well. It is
important to us that you leave happy with the photos
taken. Please see our portfolio
do the photoshoots take place?
They take place in our home-studio in Deansboro,
about 15 minutes south of Utica. You can bring someone
along with you if it makes you feel safer and more
confident. Having said that, please take into consideration
that boyfriends/girlfriends are not always the most
appropiate companion during a photoshoot. Parents/friends
are always more cooperative and relaxed. Now that
the winter is over, we also plan to do some outdoor
photoshoots at various locations around the Mohawk
you provide a make up artist or a hair stylist?
We have partnered with a fantastic
make up artist to assist us with shoots. However,
due to the cost, the make up artist is not available
for your first shoot with us. If everything goes well
the first time, we'll schedule the next shoot with
the make up artist in attendance. We are in the process
of finding a hair stylist that is a perfect fit for
us and the models that we work with.
