Hi, and welcome.
If you are reading this then you’re probably negotiating with me for a Boudoir shoot. You may have some questions this page may be able to answer some of them.
Length of Shoot?
I like to pay models for half-day shoots (4 hours), if I think a model is particularly expensive or just overpricing herself I’ll book for a 3-hour shoot instead. Shoots rarely last a full 4 hours but may do if there are many outfit/look changes.
My mind says that reasonable rates for most models should be :
- £20ph Fashion/Portraiture
- £25ph Swimwear
- £30ph lingerie/topless
- £40ph nude
If your rate is higher than this then fine we can negotiate, but remember I shoot to ultimately make money, so if I don’t know how you are during a shoot or if the images will have some commercial value, I’m less likely to be interested in paying more. Of course, the opposite is true and if I’ve shot two or three times with you, then you are considered an okay model with some commercial value, so you probably be able to lift the rate especially if the images from the last shoot made me a nice small pile of money. Regular bookings are available for model’s who have commercial value.
I shoot commercially, I will need a model release form completing and signing.
Model Use Of Images
As I sell the images, I generally don’t want them available on the internet before I’ve made money from them. So I don’t give out free images. Sometimes, I see my unlicensed pics on Models Instagram etc, and I have to tell them to take down the images. Unlicenced is the keyword, I often let the model see images from the shoot afterwards and give feedback on how I think the shoot went, then if she wants to use any images on her own social media, just ask. It will usually be okay but may have the condition that you have to wait a couple of months while the images are being used commercially before you can use them for free..
No problem at all, they can just sit quietly somewhere.
Specifically this Shoot
This shoot is for my Onlyfans page… It is necessary that any model I use to be age verified by having an account with them. Fortunately opening an account is free.
If your content contains someone other than you, you must tag that person’s OnlyFans account. If they do not have an OnlyFans account, please ask them to make one.Onlyfans Rule …..
– Video introduction.
The model will be asked to make a short (less than a minute) video intro facing camera with myself, This introduction will be posted for free on OF as a way of promoting the set of images to my subscribers, the actual set will then be sent out as a PPV.
Chris-“Hi and welcome, I’m about to shoot my next boudoir set with this wonderful model ………. ., and as she also has her own OnlyFans page let me hand over to her to tell you all about that”
Model – then promotes her onlyfans or any other social media/websites.
Chris – “and don’t forget if you have any specific bespoke requests, maids, nurses or whatever for future shoots, send a private message to me and I’ll see if they can be arranged”
– Setup and shoot
I like to work with just natural lighting and a reflector. But will have a couple of led panels in case there is none. Setup won’t take long.
My normal style is romantic rather than exotic. But will depend largely on the model. I typically shoot a short depth of field with the eyes and head in focus and the body drifting out of focus.
I would prefer the models’ home, but failing that it will be in a city centre hotel.
The minimum for this is up to tasteful nude.
