Working with Models
Models have very specific needs for their portfolios. Casting directors, modeling agencies, and other clients need to see you before they will hire you, and often, a model's "zed" or "promo" card is her only chance to open a door.
Whether you are an experienced model who needs an updated portfolio, or a new model just starting out, we can set you up with great images that will get the job done.
If you need hair, makeup, or styling, we'll find the right artist for you.
TF (Trade For...)
Trade shoots are done for free. We're trading your modeling time for my photography time if I feel that your images will benefit my portfolio (and of course, yours as well). You do your own hair and makeup and provide your own clothing. We can bring in a makeup artist if we find one willing to participate for free in exchange for images for her portfolio. Usually we do these shoots on location to avoid studio costs. We shoot for 1-2 hours, maximum.
Headshots start at $200 for a 1-2 hour session in a studio or on location. You'll receive 5 shots with 5 different looks. These are basically shoulders up shots only and are used on social media, your web site, and your promo cards.
Updating a portfolio starts at $250 for a 2 hour session on-location and includes up to ten images and three different looks.
A new portfolio starts at $400 for a 4-hour session on-location and includes up to twenty (20) images, six (6) looks, and an initial design for your zed card.
If you have specific needs, ASK! We can and will accommodate you!
Hair and makeup artists, and clothing stylists extra. Studio time billed at $75/hour (2-hour minimum). Travel billed outside of Monmouth and Ocean Counties, NJ.
Models under the age of 18 MUST BE ACCOMPANIED BY A PARENT OR LEGAL GUARDIAN- NO EXCEPTIONS!
Models over the age of 18 may also bring a chaperone, but they must not be disruptive to the photoshoot.
Please note, no outside photographers will be allowed to take pictures during your photoshoot- thank you.
