This page is to answer any questions regarding my upcoming shoots
What's it all about?
2016, I am currently working on a storybook project for a book.
I have specific creative ideas that I need to execute for art projects I am working on.
These are projects for the publishing/licensing industry.
I have created artwork for greeting cards, posters, puzzles & more for over ten years.
If you are curious about that side of my business; (you can see much of that work at my other website: http://alixandramullins.com . ) I also run a portrait studio (AlixArtPhotography ) - which is the website you are on .
(above are some of my publishing partner samples)
Question: Is this a trade for a free shoot? or a paid modeling gig?
Answer: No. I need models for specific ideas for an image I am creating with the intention of using for upcoming publishing projects I am working on. Though,you do receive a complimentary session, it's not anything like my regular sessions in which the client gets to make all her creative desires known, though I do try to be flexible for a few wishes. Professional models with experience may be paid DOE.
Question: So I get a complimentary session?
Answer: No, Not exactly; While I do regular portrait session, I generally charge $ for portrait sessions; during this time clients / parents get to tell me their wants & preferences, choose all their outfits and stylings, (as in I want my daughter wearing this in front of the ocean.. , I want to wear XYZ, - This is not the case. For my fine Art projects & modeling call; I am working towards a specific theme & idea for the images I need & props, clothing, styling & scenery will reflect as such. You do, get a Session, but it's more limited in the sense I am focused on getting the ideal shot for the project (which has been pre-planned) & not generally taking other photographs
Questions: do I get to keep all the images from the shoot?
Answer: No. You will get 1 complimentary (8x10) high quality mounted metallic printed professional image of the art that I produce as part of the project & one social media image of the same art image. Possible free copy of calendar once produced. Professional models / character actors may get headshot sheets (which is a $200 session / $150 artwork + print $130 a total $480 value complimentary for participation+ as a model in the project).
Question:Can I have all the digital files from the shoot?
Answer: No. You will get 1 complimentary (8x10) printed image of the art that I produce as part of the project & one social media image of the same art image. Possible free copy of calendar once produced.
Professional models / character actors may get headshot sheets (which is a $200 session / $150 artwork + print $130 a total $480 value complimentary for participation+ as a model in the project).
Question: Will I have access to the photos you take afterwards ? I will show you my favorites and the finished artwork. The rest of the images I take will be available to your family, however at my regular studio prices. (I specialize in 16 x 20 canvas wall art)
Question: What if I want to use the images you take?
Answer: Models get one complimentary 8x10 print as part of TFP (trade for Print) , though though additional images can be purchased at my regular studio prices.
Question: What if I want specific photos for my modeling portfolio?
Answer: Please communicate what your needs are, sometimes this is possible for professional models / actors - headshot sheets for professional models & actors are available at TFP prices depending
