How to book

General info

This text is a short address to the FAQ about the shoot organisation and is intended to help, so please read carefully – most of your questions are probably addressed here.

 

Photoshoot:

– if the shooting is on the paid location (I have a studio that is included in price), then the client is responsible for covering the rent, same about styling, HMUA. I can provide contacts for the professionals I work with.

– photos are usually ready in two weeks, guaranteed readiness is within three weeks. Urgent editing as also possible at extra fee.

Usage of the photos:

– by default, you can use all the edited photos for non-commercial purposes, however, no editing is allowed.
– if you allow me to use some photos from the photoshoot in my portfolio and other promo materials, I will give you a discount of £100.
– if you need photos for commercial use, please discuss beforehand.

Misunderstanding:

– I return the money back only if for some reason the photos were not delivered to you (damage to the film, the memory card or the hard disk drive). If you are not happy with the photos, probably, I am not the best photographer for you.

Thank you in advance for your understanding.

You can even watch me developing film and printing! (for a little extra)

 

Lessons

I teach whatever I can do myself for the past 25 years or so, do not hesitate to ask.

Notes:

For an hour of shooting, a maximum of two different outfits or their absence is a reasonable amount, three extra outfits for any extra hour.

Actors, models, PhDs and students!

If you are an actor or model and shooting for you is not a whim, but a necessity — do not hesitate to offer your price. If you are a student or a researcher, do not hesitate to write also, it is probably difficult for you to earn money. This relates to individual portrait/headshot/test shoots only.

How to book:

1. Contact me about your photoshoot, tell what kind of photos would you like to get, and to agree on the location, time and date. Only after these details are settled, we can proceed to the booking.
2. Transfer a deposit of 30% of the photoshoot price to book the time and date.
3. The rest 70% are paid on the date of the photoshoot. Payment for extra edited photos is paid before delivery. I don’t start edits until I get the full payment.

 

Free option

I believe that everything in the world should be free, but there are few people like me, so I take money from people the same way people take money from me. However, once in one’s life, almost everyone can shoot with me for free – in the project Virgins of Nude (nude photoshoot of people who have never done this before).
