Model


Thankyou for your interest in modelling.

 
Before you read any further, if you do want to model for me, you must be 18 or older.  Unfortunately, if you are not 18, I wont be able to work with you. You will also need photo ID to prove your age.

 
Here are a few question and answer for the most common questions, if you need more information please email me here,  I am always happy to help.

 
Q. Is it paid?

A. Yes, its paid in cash at the end of the shoot.  I pay from £50 up to £200 cash for a "shoot" which is 6 sets of images but more details are below.


Q. Why me?

 A.  I am looking to work with people who have not modelled before or only limited modelling experience.  I’m not looking to work with currently working models. I have done that for about 30 years! If you are reading this I already would like to work with you.  I don't make this page public as it is strictly invitation only.


Q.  I don’t have a perfect figure or know how to pose / model.

A. I only want natural “Real” people, so you are exactly who I am looking for. I will direct you with your posing and make it as fun as possible.  If I have spoken to you I already want to work with you!

 
Q. Who does my make-up?

A. You do your own make-up, I need you to be you, ie. real!  You should do 90% of your makeup before coming to the shoot and just do the finishing touches when you arrive.

 
Q. How long is a shoot?

A.  A shoot is 6 sets. That's 6 different looks or 6 different outfits.  I generally estimate 30 minutes per "Set" made up of about 10 minutes to change / re-touch makeup and 15-20 to shoot.  You may want a coffee break or a cigarette break that’s fine, so I estimate 3 to 4 hours depending on how many breaks you want to take.  I am totally flexible with you.


Q. Where do we shoot?
 
A.  I use as my home studio in Ilchester, Somerset, where I have a range of different and varied areas to use as well as all my lighting. If you are within about 30 miles I can collect you and drop you home too.

 
Q. Can I bring a friend?

A. Yes of course, although they can't be in the room while we shoot as you tend to look at them and not the camera or they distract you. We have plenty of space for them to wait with great music and Sky TV.

 
Q. What do I need to bring?

A. I will let you know what to bring, it won’t be anything that most people wont't already have in their wardrobe.  I don’t expect you to buy anything special.  What you, however, must bring is Government Issued Photo ID, e.g. Driving Licence or Passport, sorry no copies. If you dont have this contact me so we can see what you do have.  As mentioned, you will need to prove you are 18 or older.

 
Q. Who will see the images?  

A. I offer the sets of images for sale on sites like Artfinder or Bentbox.  To see the images, you must buy them.  I will use a stage name for you and there is no personal information given about you. This makes finding you as a person very difficult.  I also may publish images with Electric Dreams Magazine who I shoot for, which is an old school Lads Mag publication.  They take lingerie or topless sets only of about 15 images. Again you need to purchase to view and you real name or location won't ever be mentioned.


Q. You offer different levels as below, who chooses them?

A. You do!  This is very important, the level you shoot at is your choice. Its not fixed you can change your mind, as you gain confidence you may decide you want to make the most of it and earn more money.


Payment  / Levels

I shoot 3 levels and pay per shoot, as mentioned, a shoot being 6 sets.  The levels / rates per shoot are:-
(The rates are fixed, but you can mix and match see below)

Lingerie £50   (approx. £16.67 per hour*)
    
Topless £85   (approx. £28 per hour*)

Nude £200   (approx. £67 per hour*)

*(Hourly rate as a guide only and is based on a shoot lasting 3 hours. We pay per full shoot)

 
I pay cash at the end of the shoot. I will also edit a few images from each set for you to have a digital version of too.


The images below give an example of the different styles / levels.

You can mix and match too shooting some lingerie and some topless for example.  You will be paid in proportion to what you shoot, so if you shoose to increase you levels you will get paid more. For example, if you did half the shoot in lingerie (3 sets) and half nude (3 sets), it would pay - £125.

Its helpful if you can give me an indication as to what levels you are comfortable with beforehand, but can pick and choose your levels on the day, even changing your mind as we shoot, people often gain confidence during a shoot and want to explore their own boundaries.

If you are ready to give it a go drop me an email HERE and we will book a shoot.
