Quick question? How much do I charge for my shoot ? I'm kinda nervous on charging them like idk how to ask them for the money and how to ask for It lol I'm 15 years old and want to know about charging the model (: thanks man !
Just ask for it and as far as how much it really depends on how much you think your worth.
Beautiful work! As an aspiring photographer I am super curious as to how you approach your shoots with models. Are you almost always working with a team as in with a hairstylist/mua/fashion-stylist? Do you meet up with your models and/or your team do discuss ideas prior to a shoot? Or do you just meet up the day of the shoot and shoot? How does it work when you're shooting agency girls? Do you have to run your concepts by the agents first? How far in advance are your shoots planned out?
Thank you. Umm i mainly just shoot girls one on one if i want natural images. if its a project i set it up using a full team that use for most of my editorial work. Waste of time to do meet ups just to introduce yourself, i find that awkward to be honest. Rarely do i ever run concepts by agencies unless one of the bookers that i know personally called out for the day and its someone that i never talked too before. sometimes i shoots are planned a week ahead, 3 days ahead, day before, same day, it varies. :p
My man ! Keep it up ! You are an inspiration to me and to others! Your work it's just way to amazing ! Oh and I did the shoot on Saturdays and it went pretty well ! A bit awkward at first but then it was cool (: would you like to see some of The result ? Where can I send them to you so you tell me what you think of them?
Thank you and yes i would love to see the results just send em to my email. info is on my profile up top.
Hey Kenny, your work is truly amazing. When browsing through all the social media sites, your photos make me pause or scroll back and say "Holy shit that's amazing!" I think it really says something when, as fast as things are moving these days, a photograph can make someone put everything on pause for a minute and just be in awe. I'm also really enjoying how you and The One Who Fancies a Riot capture the same subject differently. Or does she Riot for Fancy things? Either way, keep it up please.
OMG thank you soo much such for taking the time to even take a look at my work truly appreciate it. “The one who fancies a riot” :p my partner in crime FancyRiot. Keep on the look out we got some shit up our sleeve that people are not ready for, but that’s ok we are here for them. :)

okay great thanks! Yeah i plan to shoot in a style that i've not seen here in london yet! I have one more question! Is it necessary to take in a printed book of my work? Or would an IPad with my portfolio on suffice? Thanks again!
Still love a printed book its just feels better rather than a iPad, but now and days everyone is using there iPad for portfolios.
hey Kenny! I need some quick advice from a professional and was hoping you could give it to me. I plan to take my portfolio into model agencies in London to see if they will give me some girls to shoot. I'm assuming i shouldn't charge but i was wondering if you think i should? I've heard you should never work for free. thanks so much. Don't ever stop shootin!
Congrats on taking your work to modeling agencies you should definitely charge the agencies, but also make sure you are giving them content that no one else is giving them for there portfolio. Its always best to stand out with your work rather than following the pack .
I've only been shooting myself and a few other models lately but I've always had a strong admiration for ones who are able to capture the natural beauty of females. You do it so well! Any advice or thoughts on the beginning stages?
:) love capturing natural beauty, simplicity is key to me. :) Dont over due soo much on makeup and setups. i shoot my natural beauty with just the model and nobody else. Vibe out and have a good time and capture moments that stand out to you, make sure your camera is always up and ready to snap away.
