Frequently asked questions
PLEASE READ THROUGH OUR FAQ BEFORE SUBMITTING YOUR APPLICATION TO BECOME A MODEL. ALL MODELS ARE REQUIRED TO SIGN A RELEASE FORM.
Do you have an exhibitionist streak? Maybe a former model? Or just want to dare yourself to be a little naughty? Here is the perfect way to scratch that itch and make a little money!
First lets get a few questions out of the way…
Do I have to be nude? - No. You decide your comfort level. Choices include swimsuit, lingerie, implied nudity, topless and of course nude
Can I have someone with me? - Yes of course. Husbands, boyfriends or girlfriends are welcome to be with you for safety and moral support. However, we do ask that they do not participate in the proceedings unless they are registered for the session and have proper equipment.
Will I have to ‘perform’ - No. Again this is entirely up to you. At a minimum you will be asked to pose in various positions by the photographers.
Is videotaping allowed - No. Photographers are strictly forbidden from taking video
Will the pictures be published - Most likely. In any case you will be required to sign a model release which gives the photographers the right to publish your photos.
Can I get a copy of the photos - Yes. Photographers are required to give you copies of any photo that you would like.
How many photographers are there - Sessions are limited to no more than 8 photographers.
Can I wear a mask? - Yes. If you are concerned about your face being in the photos you are allowed to appear ‘masquerade’ style. You can provide your own mask or we have several to choose from.
Can I appear with another female - Yes. If you would like to appear with another female she can attend with you, however, the appearance fee is the same
Can I appear with a male - No. Our public sessions are restricted to studies of the female form. If you would like to appear with a male you can rent the facility for a private session and supply your own photographer or we can supply one for you. For more information click here
How does clothing and makeup work? - We prefer that you bring clothes, shoes and any props that you are comfortable appearing in or using. You know what you look best in and doing this allows you to be relaxed and perform at your level of comfort. We have additional clothing and props on hand that you are free to experiment with as well. Makeup should be applied before you arrive unless other arrangements have been made. The studio is equipped with a dressing area and a bathroom.
Do I get paid? Yes . We pay $75/hr for models, public sessions last two hours. You may also be asked to appear in private sessions where one photographer will have the chance to work with you exclusively. These sessions pay $100/hr
