Thank you for your interest in booking me! Let's cover some ground rules:
I am happy to shoot up to artistic nudes and glamour lingerie. I am no longer taking glamour nude work. This generally means I will not be wearing heels when nude unless there is a specific purpose, and I will not be making direct eye contact with the camera on demand while pulling down my panties. If the pose suits this viewer-model interaction, I will be happy to make this connection. When nude, this interaction becomes sexual very easily, and I do not want to overdo this. This does not mean I do not pose sensually in general, but it does mean I am less likely to pose sensually when nude. My intentions are artistic, not for arousal, although I am aware arousal and artistry sometimes come hand in hand. I will not fake a smile when nude or slowly undress. I do not want to be included in brands such as Playboy, Penthouse, etc - or images similar to these. I am, however, interested in the idea of eroticism without nudity or explicitness. This is a case to case basis and requires discussion.
If you are unclear, let's share mood boards and inspiration images. All styles MUST be discussed before hand, it is very unlikely I will accept a change in genre on the spot/on set.
My rates for Canada and USA are currently $100/hr with a 2 hour minimum booking. Other countries have varying rates in accord to the industry there. If I am providing the location, there is no minimum booking. I provide locations sporadically and depending on the city. I am also sometimes able to offer studio discounts. I offer discounted rates for duo model bookings. I do not charge extra for additional photographers at this time.
I request a 25% booking deposit. This confirms the shoot arranged in my calendar. The remaining 75% must be provided before I leave set. I accept cash, e-transfer, and paypal only.
I understand things may happen with short notice, and I will do my best to accommodate for any changes. If a change or postponement is not available, I require a cancellation fee. If the cancellation is within 7 days, I will ask for 50% of the agreed price (this is including the booking deposit, so it would be an additional 25% payment). If it is within 24 hours, I will ask for 100%. Please understand this is my full time job and last minute cancellations can make a paying trip into an expense. I depend on stable bookings as it is my only income.
Please do not touch me for any reason, unless consent is given. Yes, this means I can normally fix my own panties if they're twisted, but I may ask for your help to hide a tag.
The clock starts and ends on the time agreed on previously. I often have shoots back to back, so if you spend the first 30 minutes talking and then ask to begin shooting - this can back up my entire day and make me look unprofessional to everyone else.
If we are shooting outdoors, I strongly suggest having a back up location. I am fairly tolerant with weather, but I understand your camera gear likely is not.
I do not accept water bottles on the shoot. This is entirely an environmental decision and I ask you do not buy me bottled water as this increases production demand. I will have a reusable water bottle with me, and I suggest you take the same habit (but I'm not your mother).
In general, I believe there are no wrong questions and will never be upset by a question asked. To avoid potential awkwardness, please note I am happy in my relationship and am not looking for another one.
