I have been shooting architecture and sports for longer than most folk reading this will have been alive and am a fairly recent convert to this genre. I maybe haven’t yet perfected a “style” of my own, but I lean towards dynamic, expressive images and am equally at home in the studio or out and about.
Most usually I do paid shoots which leaves me free to decide, whether, or not, to share images. It is rare that I would not give a model some images from a shoot and for the occasional TF shoot, I shall provide an agreed number of images sized to suit social media etc. Normally this will be within a week.
I do not pay models what I’d consider to be silly, high rates above the norm. As a good guide, I have worked with some extremely experienced and capable models charging around £30 - £35 per hour. Generally, for fashion, I think £20 - £25 is fair if you have a competent portfolio.
I enjoy the process of shooting and you will see from my references that I’m easy going and considerate to my models. I also tend to source most of the outfits for shoots by trawling the internet for bargains, or something quirky.
Chaperons: See my references, unless you are under 18, you don’t need one! If we can’t trust each other, we don’t shoot. If you want someone to drive you to a shoot, that’s fine. We can say hello and shake hands before they go and find something else to do for the duration of the shoot.
