If you are a Thunder Bay model, or aspiring to be, you are invited to contact me to arrange a photoshoot, without cost. It would be done a trade-for-pictures basis, so neither of us pay money. The model receives copies of selected photos from the shoot to use in their portfolio. As the photographer, I retain the copyright to all the images and you provide a model release, allowing me to use the images.
The photo shoot would be outdoors, probably in a local park in Thunder Bay, where we can maintain a COVID-safe distance. I generally prefer the weekend for shoots, but am flexible.
Based on experience, I think the best approach is to plan on doing two shoots, maybe a week apart. The first is short, up to an hour. This lets me review the initial images properly, share a few with the model, and for us to plan a longer shoot, of about 3-4 hours, with the knowledge of what will and won’t work for the specific model. Every model is unique. What works for one, won’t work for another.
You can read how to prepare for the first shoot.
You should expect to receive a modest number of quality images. Typically, that’s about one image for every 10-15 minutes of shoot time. I will only release my best work, with any touch-ups that I feel are necessary.
Please check out some of the images I have taken, and judge what I can do:
