PurplePort (and other modelling sites): Model shoot arrangements:
I'm really easy-going, but acting professionally. Above all I want you to enjoy the shoot and look fabulous in the images. After 200 shoots experience tells me that a few things sorted beforehand lead to a clearer understanding and a better shoot.
If you are unsure in any way then ask rather than simply assuming it will be OK - I will not act unreasonably so please discuss things first.
TFP/Collaboration and Images: if there is an interesting idea that will enhance my portfolio and you are enthusiastic then a TF/Collaboration shoot is possible. TF means the model trades their time for image usage rights these rights are for personal promotional and not commercial usage unless with my prior consent.
I will show you via Dropbox the images from the shoot that are technically acceptable and I'm OK to have my name on and edit an agreed number (usually 10) for you within two weeks of you letting me know your choices. Should there be an unexpected delay I will notify you. Images will be in provided in a web-friendly format.
The Dropbox images are for reviewing and selecting your choices - these low resolution images must not be downloaded or, used in any other way (it has happened.)
Edited images will usually be watermarked should you want them without a watermark let me know. Prints can be provided at cost. Image copyright will be retained by me and not transferred and I am to be acknowledged (tagged) as the photographer.
Please don't copy images from my port or website to use in any way (it has happened) this is a breach of copyright.
I spend a long time editing images and they will be provided in sizes suitable for the internet/social media. Please do not re-edit or apply filters etc
Paid shoots: Sometimes, I will pay suitable models for shoots to develop my ideas or techniques to expand my creative style. For the avoidance of any doubt I don't normally provide images.
Should you want images from a paid shoot, you can buy them; shoot part-paid or, offer another shoot on a full TF basis.
Image copyright will be retained and not transferred and I am to be acknowledged (tagged) as the photographer.
Portfolio Builders/Pay for sites: If you simply want images to boost your portfolio, or, for sites such as Only Fans, Patreon, Suicide Girls, Extreme PlayPen - contact me for my rates.
Chaperones: if you’re over 18 please don’t ask if you can bring a chaperone or, turn up unannounced with someone (the shoot will be cancelled) unless they are simply dropping you off – check my references and feel free to contact any of the models that have shot with me - none of the over 18s needed a chaperone.
Cancellations: if you cancel I will always leave an appropriate reference. If you cancel and I have booked a studio or venue or hired something else for the shoot then I will make reasonable efforts to find a suitable model as a replacement. If I’m not able to do this you will be responsible for the cost of cancelling that studio or, venue or, the cost of the hire. Payment is due on or before the original shoot date. A re-schedule does not remove the obligation to pay for the missed date.
Please do not book with me if you aren’t able to agree to the above.
I always provide lots of snacks and drinks on shoots with plenty of breaks. Let me know if you have dietary requirements.
