Q: Do you accept girls of all sizes?
A: Our clients are happy with all sizes and shapes. The only real requirement is that you must be over 18 and you must have two forms of ID to prove it.
Q: Can any nationality apply?
A: Of course. Magazines love foreign looks, all nationalities are welcome.
Q: What about privacy during shoots?
A: There is myself and maybe the make-up artist if she is required for any touch-ups that may be required, but she can leave if you would like. I shoot with long lenses, so I'm not in your face.
Q: Am I guaranteed to get paid?
A: If we are shooting for magazines, you get paid by cheque some weeks after the shoot. If you have been accepted you will definitely get paid. Magazines I shoot for belong to very large Australian publishing houses. I've yet to have a girl rejected.
Q: What should I bring?
A: Depending on what we are doing, I always email the whole list, but in general, Photo ID - like Passport or Drivers license or ID card are needed to make sure you are over 18. Heels, the higher the better, 3 x lingerie or swimsuits, make up (unless you have booked ours), hair brush, any hair products you are using, also a robe and towel can come in handy.
Q: How do I prepare for a shoot?
A: The body should be waxed / shaved neatly, no under arm or leg hair, the pubic hair is usually up to you, but less is best. Eyebrow wax is essential as eyebrows frame the face. Make sure you don't have any lip hair. A good quality fake tan is recommended if you are really white or have bad tan lines. Nails neat and french manicure or plain glossy nail polish. Fake nails are fine but no glue on nails.
Q: I have some scarring and a bruise, would that be OK?
A: Minor scaring, acne, bruises are all fine, images get airbrushed before publication.
Q: I have many tatts, would that be a problem?
A: Magazines love tattoos, so no issue there. We can also approach tattoo magazines and sell to them as well
Q: Can I bring someone along to the shoot?
A: Yes if it makes you feel more comfortable. However in our experience girls relax and pose better without family or friends watching them. A supportive boyfriend might turn nasty on the day and we really don't like having fights or tears during the shoot. Also girls often look at their friend instead of the camera, so the photos are unusable and shoot takes that much longer. If you feel insecure the best way is to bring someone along to say hello and then have that person wait nearby.
Q: How long does a shoot take?
A: Allow minimum 3-4 hours.
Q: Do I do my own hair and make up?
A: For magazines, we highly recommend getting a professional make up artist and hair stylist at a discount price. Otherwise you are welcome to do your own, but a professional make up is always recommended as print makeup is heavier than day to day makeup.
Q: Do you come to other states?
A: Yes, quite often to Sydney and a few times a year to Cairns and Byron bay and the NSW North and Central Coast.
Q: How much money is it possible to make working with you?
A: The sky is the limit for the right person. If you have the right look and attitude, are reliable and keen, you could do modeling as your full time job.
Q: I'm a total beginner, wouldn't have a clue what to do.
A: That's perfectly all right. Most of the girls we shoot are new to the industry. I help with posing, and brief you on all that you need to know and do.
Q: Which magazines will I appear in?
A: People, Picture and Homegirls are always looking for girls and they pay quickly (They pay you and I direct)
Penthouse and Playboy use me as a talent scout, I send them your photos and if they are interested in you, they will get one of their staff photographers to photograph you and you will be paid direct by them depending on the shoot.
