model tests

If you are a model interested in investing in your book one of my sessions could be ideal for you.

Every model has experienced a free test that hasn’t lived up to expectations, it’s something I hear time & time again, a wasted day for images you can’t use, over retouched images, I’ve heard it all and for a model it’s disappointing. With over ten years of model testing under my belt, both through direct bookings and agency bookings, I know what works and how to get the images that showcase you and add value to your book. I’ve been told by some models that they wanted to shoot with me for a long time but thought I would be out of their budget so never asked. I’ve put this information together for that reason.

My basic model test starts at just £200 and honestly this is the one that I usually recommend. If there is any retouching needed then I will keep it subtle and natural, you will look like you, not some photographer’s ideal version of you!

I generally work from my purpose built home studio in Benfleet, Essex, which is just a 30 minute train journey from West Ham on the Fenchurch Street line and I will pick up and drop you back to Benfleet station.

If you would like my full rates card please drop me an email and I’ll send you a copy with the various options and more detail.

Free tests - I do on occasion collaborate with models, however this is something I may only do once a month or every couple of months, usually for a specific idea, project or if I’m looking to test a lighting set up. I have no problem with those who ask but I do have models and agencies contact me weekly.
