Unplanned Location Shoots
For the past 10 years I’ve been photographing unplanned location shoots.
They’re photo tours per se where we stop at random spots and shoot, then jump back in the car/s and go hunting for the next location/s. There’s never preplanning. We just hit the road and let the location find us, and every time we’ve come back with a stack of great images.
Own Hair, Makeup and Wardrobe
Models do their own makeup, hair and wear their own wardrobe. I usually have no idea what styling choices will be made, which is very intentional. I’ve always shot this way because the purpose for me is to portray the model as a person and not the mannequin / human clothes hanger. I enjoy creating the images far more when the goal is to retell the model’s story – instead of interpreting some creative team’s narrative which offers no insight into who the ‘model’ is as a person.
How Long is the Shoot?
The shoots usually last a few hours. If you count back 4 hours from sunset, this is the time we usually start.
Transport and Guest
If you have transport you’re welcome to follow and you’re also welcome to bring someone. All I ask is that if you do bring someone they remain quiet while we shoot and allow you to get into your zone 😉 If you don’t have transport you’re to either request your guest drives, or I can drive.
What do you receive?
The shoot will be TFP, meaning that in exchange for your time and modelling you will receive the images and rights to use them to promote your modelling.
You’ll receive fully processed high resolution image files that can be printed at any size. You’ll be able to download them from your own private password protected gallery. The images are yours to use in all of your promotion, socials and folios. You can also post the images online and print them as well.
