Professional images can be very expensive, and you should be very careful when making your decision as to whether you pay for images, or try and get started with what you have. This being said, you must bare in mind that in reality if you are new to the industry, having simple snaps may limit the type and volume of work agencies submit you for.
You should not have to pay vast sums of money to have a professional portfolio produced, there are many companies out there desperate to offer you a free shoot and then charge you hundreds and in some cases thousands of pounds to purchase the images. We have heard so many terrible stories of people being involved with companies charging an absolute fortune.
Fresh Agents are sent images everyday from people who have unfortunately used these companies, many of them over style you and tend to do your hair and make-up so outrageous, they are absolutely no use to the commercial modelling environment.
We recognise that many artists starting out will need a good few professional images to start promoting themselves, therefore we have put together a offer for a reasonably priced photo-shoot where you will gain images that are suitable for the industry that we work in.
There are no hidden charges, this is something that has been set up purely to offer an alternative to some of these awful companies.
We are very lucky to be able to offer a unique service, as we have a magnificent studio and great outdoor locations for our sessions.
The shoot costs £299 and includes the following:
2 hours photo-shoot, made up of 1 hour in the studio, 1 hour on location
All images will be edited and sent to you on memory stick for your own use, there is no copyright, we tend to supply you with around 50 images.
You will have a varied shoot, in terms of poses, ‘looks’ and outfits which these will be supplied by yourself.
We will create you a website profile on www.freshagents.co.uk, this is the first step in promoting yourself, by being represented by a reputable agency, and by having a profile so clients are able to find you for work, and we are able to promote you (usual cost £49)
If you require a make-up artist, this can be arranged, it will add 30 mins onto the shoot and is at an additional charge of £40.
