Thank you for your interest to be considered as a model with Creekstone Photography.
You more than likely came to this page because we have scheduled a session and a group shoot and I am looking for more information or we are discussing the possibility of scheduling an individual session sometime in the near future. In either case I look forward to working with you.
I consider these sessions a mutual exchange of our respective professional talents. I do not pay models nor do I ask to be paid for my services. This is strictly a TF* session.
I treat every session as a professional engagement. To me that means we start on time, we have planned the session, we work through the shoot list, etc.
If this is part of a group session we probably have an hour together, which we will be shooting for about 30-40 minutes, one or two outfits/looks. So it is extremely important we be on schedule.
If this is a single session, we will probably be shooting for two hours, around 3 outfits/looks, maybe two locations (studio/on location)
If we are shooting a specialty session, Boudoir, Maternity, Suicide Girls, Zivity, etc. The needs of those sessions will be determined on a session by session basis.
We start with a general questionnaire to make sure we are on the same page.
Based on your preferences and my goals for the session I will create an online "Look Book" to establish a theme or mood for the session.
Finally we will schedule the time/date/location(s) for the session
I will send out a copy of the model release in advance for your review to be signed on site before the session begins. In general, I require models bring photo IDs as well.
As a general rule I am all about safety first and have no problems models coming with an Escort. Once the session has begun If I feel the escort is distracting or in any way detracting from the session I may ask they to walk away. For this reason I do tend to prefer Escorts who are more supportive (sisters/girlfriends) who can help with hair and outfit changes rather than protective (Moms/Boyfriends) I can provide references as needed by a number of models I have worked with. Just ask.
Hair and Makeup
Unless it is a group shoot where I will be shooting 8 or 9 models in a day I tend not to invest in a HMUA. If you are looking for photos to launch your modeling career, invest in a hair and makeup session before the shoot.
If we have decided on outfit choices before the session, please arrive in other loose fitting clothing with the session outfits pressed and on hangers. For Lingerie, Implied nudes or nudes please make sure to remove all tags and undergarments should not be so tight as to leave elastic marks on the skin.
I understand life happens and sometimes uncontrollable things occur. All I ask is that you be professional about it and if you will not be able to make a scheduled shoot, please let me know in advance, with as much notice as possible. By the time we get to that point you will have my cell.
Processing & Delivery
Processing a session can take 7-10 days. You will receive a link to download images from my servers generally within 2 weeks. Most of the time it is sooner than that, but just to be safe. Processed means fully edited, photoshopped, with a light watermark. I do ask you leave the watermark in place.
In a group session you will get between 7-10 photos
Single session - 15-20
Specialty Session really depends on the session.
