Model Scouting - Pixl Photography

- If you have one of my cards, I appreciate your interest in working together! Hopefully, we can make some great photos!

- Introductory pay rates for models are about $50 dollars an hour. Follow-up sessions may be more, depending how well we can work together. A great session with rapport between the photographer and model always produces more valuable photos, which is why I'm willing to pay more.

- Each shoot lasts from 1 and a half to 2 hours. I typically schedule three shoots per session, so plan for a single session to last between 4 to 6 hours. Oftentimes the complete session is shorter, but I prefer working at a relaxed pace, with plenty of time to create great photos. I believe the best photos come from a relaxed atmosphere where the photographer and model have a good working rapport. Because of this, I strive for my shoots to be as laid-back and casual as possible.

- After the session, the model receives copies of any photos taken. Use them in your portfolio (if you have one), post them on your social media accounts, or even just share them with your friends. One exception is business contracts. I am sometimes engaged by businesses for an ad campaign photo shoot or something similar. When this happens, the business owns the copyright, so it can designate restrictions with using the photos. One possible stipulation is an embargo against public display of some of the images (usually due to marketing intentions). If such stipulations are part of the contract, the models are informed ahead of time. However, models do still receive copies of any other photos from the shoot.

- I am actively seeking models for these genres: Fashion, Lifestyle, and Themed (Fantasy, Cosplay, Historic, etc).

- I prefer outdoor photo shoots. Our scheduling needs to be flexible enough to account for weather. Short travel may be required, depending on the nature of the shoots and location availability.

- You are welcome to have a friend come along to assist with hair, makeup, or clothing. However, they will not be paid.
