Photographer Wanted to support Junior School Photoshoot

Gidders28 is looking to pay a photographer for this casting. It's based around Sutton Coldfield, West Midlands B73, UK Added 1536958441.

I've been commissioned to undertake the portrait photoshoot for a local junior school. The shoot dates have not been finalised but will be mid week mid October - early November.

The aim is to capture 12-15 fun creative images of each child - this is not a "sit on a chair & the a head shot" shoot so expect to have to direct the children to get the required shots. Guidance will be given on required poses. You will also need to be able to work methodically - its it's imperative that we get to the end of the shoot knowing which child is which! With the number of children at the school I'm anticipating it will be two days work.

The shoot style is high key /white background. I use a lastolite hilite with two lights in the background & 1/2 front lights with shoot through umbrellas. If you have your own studio kit, that's great as it means I don't have to hire it so there's more in the kitty to pay you :) As far as your lenses are concerned, experience tells me me that FF equivalent of 24-105/120 is ideal, a 24-70 on a crop sensor will work but an 18-55 is to short for tight head shots

Pay is negotiable depending on what studio kit you have

If interested, to show that you have read & understood the casting, respond with "I have got /haven't got the studio kit (as appropriate) in the subject line. When responding tell me, why I should choose you, if you've any experience of this type of volume shoot, what camera & lens you propose to use & what daily fee you'd be expecting. 


I am a full time photographer and have more than 42 years experience. I work for either pay or trade depending on assignment.

I'm based in Sutton Coldfield, West Midlands B73, UK. Map
