Photograph PROFESSIONAL MODELS 1-on-1

 

Shoot-A-Model is the first of its kind studio where you can photograph beautiful models on practically a walk-in basis.  We provide the models, the space, and the lighting.  All you need to bring is a good camera, a positive attitude, and payment!

Our models are experienced, fun to work with, and are selected via a competitive process for their look, their personality, their posing experience, and their comfort working with photographers of all levels.

Here's what some of our clients are saying about Shoot-A-Model:

"Overall I think the concept is brilliant. Shoot-A-Model is really addressing a big pain point of many photographers and making it super easy, accessible, and affordable to hire not only a model but also in a great studio space to test with or portfolio build. I'm extremely satisfied with how the process works and the professionalism of the model I worked with."  
-- Jakub Redziniak / Headshot & Wedding Photographer

"This is a wonderful idea.  The model that I worked with was on time, professional, eager to lend a hand and we got some amazing shots. I would definitely use not only the space in the future but the model again or pick a model and shoot for an easy hour or two. The bottom line was it was convenient. It was quick and it allowed for the creativity to flow without having to worry about equipment."  
-- Alix Day

"The session was great! I like the space and the chairs.  Was good for fashion designers like me who need a quick photoshoot for new product. It definitely takes the hassle out of finding a model & making sure she's there on time. I also like how you have different/fresh faces too. Tanya looks amazing! She's very photogenic and easy to work with. Hopefully I'll work with her again thru your company in the future."
-- Dorothy Williams / Fashion Designer, Founder Luminaa

 

Shoot-A-Model is open 10-5 pm Saturdays and Sundays in midtown Manhattan.

How to Book

To book a shoot with one of our models, you pay $50 deposit online and the balance in cash when you arrive. 

Select the model you want to shoot, then select the type of shoot, how many hours, and the date you want to shoot from the list of her available dates. 

In the confirmation page, you'll be able to tell us your preferred time of day (between 10 and 6 pm).  We'll do our best to accommodate it.  If for any reason we are not able to accommodate your time preference, we'll offer you other times and if none work for you, you would get a refund of the deposit.

 
 

Shooting Policies

 

First and foremost is utmost respect of our models.

Any direction you give a model must be verbal and only verbal.  No touching our models directly or indirectly or approaching closer than 3 feet at any time.

Shoots are booked back-to-back and all setup and breakdown must happen within your time slot.  To allow the model time to get ready for the next shoot, you must wrap at least 5 minutes before the end of your reserved time. If you are bringing your own studio lighting equipment, you must stop shooting 15 minutes before the hour to have time to pack your gear and be out without running into the next photographer's time.

Photographers must be at least 21 to shoot at Shoot-A-Model.

Only one photographer per model.

Before booking a nude shoot, a photographer must book a lingerie shoot on a separate day.

All photographers must read and sign our service agreement before each and every shoot.

A model has the right to decline shooting with a particular photographer for any reason (her comfort comes first).  

Shoot-A-Model retains the right to refuse service to anyone intoxicated, under the influence, or violating any of our service policies.

 

FAQ

 

Who is Shoot-A-Model useful for?
Shoot-A-Model helps amateur and hobbyist photographers to more quickly develop their skills and portfolio by working with talented models that they wouldn't otherwise have access to and at a cost that is much lower than if they tried to hire them on their own.
Shoot-A-Model similarly provides professional photographers who want to expand to other genres, to quickly hire and work with talented models in those genres.

Can I book one of your models to shoot beauty or fashion instead of lingerie or art-nude?
Yes, you may hire any of our models for a beauty or fashion shoot and you would pay the "lingerie" shoot rate. 

Why would I use Shoot-A-Model instead of hiring my own models?

Here's what Shoot-A-Model saves you:

  • Saves you time posting ads on modeling sites (unless you are an established photographer, you might not even get any replies).
  • Saves you time going back and forth with models agreeing on rate, time, and location.
  • Saves you the time finding and the cost of renting a studio (forget it if you think a professional model will shoot in your apartment).
  • Saves you the cost of renting professional lighting equipment.
  • Saves you the uncertainty of whether the model will show up late or even show up at all (does happen) and the time and money you spent goes down the drain.

What type of camera should I bring?
Any camera that has a hot-shoe for a flash on top.  That's where the trigger for the strobe lighting will go.  If your camera is a point-and-shoot without a flash hot-shoe, borrow or rent a camera that does.

What lighting equipment does Shoot-A-Model provide?
Each shoot gets two to three Profoto D1 strobes with a large umbrella and small umbrella.  There's also access to softboxes and a beauty dish.

Can I bring my own lights?
Yes.  Setting them up and breaking them down needs to happen within the time slot you reserved and not before or after.

What background and props does Shoot-A-Model provide?
That depends on the location, but in general there is a grey background (fabric or paper), a variety of seating and reclining options, and plenty of accessories for the models.

Can I bring lingerie for the model?
Yes, but only if it's new/in original packaging and the model gets to keep it.

What's the cancellation policy?
Call us at least 24 hours before.

What if I don't show?
You still owe for the time you reserved.  You won't be able to book a future shoot until you've settled any amount owed.

Where is Shoot-A-Model located?
We are currently located at Space-4-Shoots in Midtown.  We'll send you the full address when you book a model to shoot.
