Frequently Asked Questions

I want to get into modeling. How can I build my portfolio?

We can totally help you! We can set up a portrait session with you and do images in different outfits, at different locations and showing varying emotions, attitudes and features. Remember, you should have a comprehensive portfolio that shows your range, but is also consistent and professional. 

How much do you charge for model photos?

Our sessions start at $175 +tax. There is no limit on the amount of outfits or locations, as long as it fits into the time frame you paid for. These sessions do not include prints or digital files. 

Should I get digital or printed images?

These days, most places want digital files. However, you should definitely have a few printed images so that if you need them, you have them. It never hurts to be prepared. 

How can I practice modeling?

Honestly, there is a lot to learn in the modeling world. You should practice your angles and posing, know at least a little bit about lighting, know which side is your best, what type of modeling you really want to do, what kind of jobs you want to get and what kind of images you need in your portfolio to get those jobs.
