What is shooting with you like?
We do our best to put you at ease during your shoot as I understand how self-conscious and awkward we can all feel in front of the camera. Most of the ladies in our portfolio are professional models who signed a model release, but everyone requires a certain amount of guidance during their shoot. No matter how much or how little experience you have, rest assured that you will walk away from your shoot with pictures worthy of a magazine page.
What does a shoot include?
At our Studio in Miami, the packages include the shooting time and specified retouched images in each packages only. Professional Airbrush Makeup and Hair Dresser are included in most of the packages at our studio in Miami. When Touring, a location is included in the package. Since many of you do not require a makeup artist,We do not include it on a regular basis. If you decide that you will need it, you can either book your own or visit any reputable makeup counter/salon in your city. We are not responsible for poor quality makeover services if not provided by us. Beauty retouching will be considered an extra work subject to an additional editing fee
How long does a shoot last?We offer different packages with an estimate of the maximum – from a 1 hour shoot (Miami only) up to 8 hrs, however we are always happy to create a special package just for you, according to your specific needs. Additional hours may be purchased at $300/hr the day of the shoot, should you find you need more time. Additional retouched images can always be purchased at $50 after the shoot as well.
Do you provide a location for the shoot?
In Miami, we have our own state of the art studio. For all other South Florida cities, We recommend that you book a hotel room that represents your style and best suit your budget. For our tours, a 4-5 star luxurious location is provided and included in the package fee, however if you like to book a different location, it is to be done at your own expense. We are also happy to shoot outdoors, weather permitting. Should the location you chose be far out of the downtown core, a small transportation fee may be applicable unless we are traveling to the location together.
Can I arrive late?
We have a busy booking agenda so unfortunately we have zero tolerance policy on late arrivals. All delays on your part will be subtracted from your shooting time package.
Who is in the set during the shoot?
Just the photographer and you. If your package includes hair dresser or makeup artist, then the stylist will be present to provide hands on service during the shoot.
Can I bring a friend/boyfriend/pet to the shoot?
We strive to create a comfortable and relaxed environment during the shoot and welcome anything that would make you feel relaxed, like your favorite music, etc. But we prefer to avoid having an audience at the shoot.
How far in advance do I need to book?
We recommend that you contact me at least one month prior to the desired shoot date as to ensure that we can best accommodate your scheduling request.
Do you require a deposit?
Yes. We require a non refundable $500 deposit for all our shoots and a full payment for our Eros Special. A shoot is considered confirmed once the deposit has been received. Deposits are refundable 30 days prior to the confirmed shoot date, provided no hotel/travel fees had been incurred. With less than 30 days prior to the shoot date, no rescheduling may be accepted. Should our availability permit, any changes to the booking after confirmation are subject to a $150 re-booking fee. Deposits are not transferable.
How can I pay you?
We accept Major credit cards, Paypal and E-transfers for the deposits. The remainder of the fee must be settled in cash at the time of the shoot.
What do I need to prepare for the shoot?
Prior to the shoot, we will draft our shoot by you send us images to looks that you like. Although when most images will be cropped or blurred in their final versions, we highly recommend that you apply some makeup for your shoot, just to get you in the mood for it. It is very important to pay special attention to your hair and nails (both pedicure and manicure) as, without your face visible, that’s the next detail one’s eye will travel to. Bring just a selection of outfits for the looks that are included in package (lingerie, shoes, dresses and accessories) We have years of experience in styling and we will be able to assist you in coordinating your looks should you need help. In selecting garments for the shoot, keep in mind the kind of image you would like to project to your admirers. Remember that if you want to stand out, it’s up to you to make that difference. Please arrive “camera ready”, unless makeup and hair styling is included in your packages. Any preparations done ‘on set’ will only take time away from your booking.
Who will see my images?
Your images are kept private and shared with only you via a private sharing system (dropbox).
Can I get all the high-rez images from my shoot with no watermark?
Of course. A CD of the whole shoot can be purchased for $300, or shared via dropbox.
Who will select the final images?
The final choice is always up to you. We are happy to make recommendations or help you narrow down your selections after the shoot if you like but you always have the final say.
When do I get my photos?
Unless We are travelling (on tour), the gallery is available to you the day after your shoot. Turn around on edited images is about 5-6 days. If you need your images sooner, please advise us as soon as possible – a rush fee of $25/pic per image will be applied, and you will get it after the shoot
Our skills allow us to fix most common problems with lighting, poses and styling during the shoot, Although each photo needs some level of retouching to look perfect.
How can I make sure I get my photos on time?
Unless otherwise specified, We will leave time in the few days following your shoot to work on your photos. To make sure they are done in a timely manner, please send me a concise list with file names within a day or 2 of receiving your gallery. If you choose to send them to us a few weeks after, be prepared to a wait a little longer as priority will be given to more recent shoots. We will honour retouch orders up to a maximum of 1 month following the date of your shoot. After that period, we will not keep back up of your photos
Can you take out my rib?Can you add a palm tree in the background?
Yes we can, but it will be considered as an advanced retouch and it will estimate the cost accordingly
We add a metadata encryption as well as a faint watermark (lower corner of image) to make sure that your image and the investment you made towards the shoot is protected.
