About the shoot:
Usually I shoot for one or two hours, depending on the requirements.
I ask the client to practice poses prior to the shoot so that it will be easier on the day to get into pose. Modelling can be quite exhausting, trust me. It is really important to practice pose and expression prior to the shoot.
I like for the client, if possible, to put together a PINTEREST board of ideas and inspiration, so that we know the kind of “look” we are going for.
Studio shoots take place in a studio on Lower Gardiner street… Hotels or other studios can be arranged to suit the client requirements.
I have many props which I can bring on the day of the shoot, if required.. unusual things like: a deer head (made from a heavy man-made material), artificial flowers, artificial petals, feathers, vintage prom dresses, lace gloves, vintage neck pieces and the list goes on.. Props will depend on the style of shoot or type of image you want to achieve.
I usually do direct a model to change practiced poses in small ways to perfect the image, graceful and pleasing hands and feet.. point those toes.
I don’t like leaving things to the last minute so everything is discussed in detail prior to the shoot on the phone or and by email.
I can put clients in touch with a Make Up Artist if make up is a requirement. For Art Nude shoots, it’s preferably to go as natural as possible, boudoir images tend to be more made up/heavier make up and creative images then the make up will depend on the mood / style / costume.
