Service Description

Each month I offer a limited number of sessions for models, photographers, makeup artists, stylists, and anyone interested in telling powerful stories through photography. We cover sets, lighting, location, talent, and angles to make sure things are just right. Let's work together! THE PROCESS: 1. Consultation - You send me examples of your best images to date and a selection of images from other models with styles and poses that inspire you. I then use these to create a vision board which captures poses and lighting that will highlight you at your best. 2. The Shoot - We schedule a session in the studio which will start with 20-30 minutes to relax and get to better know one another in person. The remaining time will be shooting as many looks and poses that fit in the time. 3. Image Review - We will end the studio session with a review of the images from the day and you will have the opportunity to select your Top 8 images. After the session I will do a detailed review of the images and also select a Top 8. 4. Retouching - I will select the top 3 to 5 images with preference to images we both select for our Top 8. If the is no overlap, I will edit the top images from my selections. 5. Final Images - I will post a private downloadable gallery on my website with the final 3-5 images. You will receive a signed Photo Release that allows you to use the images as you wish with minimal limitations (See Terms & Conditions). You also agree to sign a Model Release allowing me to use the images with minimal limitations (See Terms & Conditions). You will be able to purchase additional retouched images for $25 per photo. TIPS TO MAXIMIZE YOUR SHOOT: Bring several low-maintenance quick-change style outfits in different colors and styles to allow different looks. Starting with hair down and more formal then moving to less formal can make transitions faster. Also bring any personal styling or grooming supplies you might need to make sure you look your best. Remember you are the focus of the image! The outfit should highlight you. HAIR, MAKEUP, AND LOCATION SERVICES Additional services include onsite professional hair and makeup and location booking (office space, photo studios, hotel rooms, pool side, etc). These services will be billed to the customer based on available rates. IMAGE LICENSE Please see Terms & Conditions under the resource tab for image rights. © Darnell Kemp for all images.
