I present them with two 8x10 professionally done prints of their choice.
That would be a Time For Prints arrangement, Fred's doing a Time For CD shoot.
TFP used to be the most popular way by far to exchange talents but within the past year TFCD has become very popular. I think that's because it's easier for the photographer and the model is much more likely to get her stuff, and get it faster.
A win-win situation in my book.
I give them a CD with full resolution jpegs saved at the maximum setting and a web-size version at 800 pixels on the longest dimension.
Do you have a model release? If not you need one. PM me and I'll send you mine.
I upload full res JPGs to my SmugMug site and leave the Gallery unprotected for a week to allow time for the model to download images if he/she wants. I provide a CD with the same images on request. I typically provide 20-30 images per shoot.
I provide them with a CD (or DVD if needed) 3 sometimes 4 directories.
- Full size and resolution JPegs
- Resized JPegs 150 DPI and 10 inches on the long side
- TIFF compress
- And sometimes CMYK convered file
Ah so, I had no idea what TFCD stood for until this explanation. Thanks.
Do you need any help with the shoot??? Maybe a 3rd AB? :biggrin: This is a good thread, I could use this too, IF one of the models I actually talk to ever confirms and keep a darn appointment....
Thanks for the offer Keith, but I want to see how handle it. Besides you will bring that darn beast thing - and my camera is going want one if it sees yours. $$$$$$$$$$$$
It took me 3 months to pull together 2 models, a Hair/MUA artist, and a place to shoot them. More work than I ever thought it would be.
