02 Sep 10 questions to ask before booking your first glamour photoshoot
A glamour photoshoot requires a lot of trust in the photographer’s skills. You need to feel confident when deciding to go for it. So don’t be afraid to ask questions. If you’re thinking about making an appointment for a photo session, I have a collection of questions you should ask before you start photo shooting.
What is a glamour session and what does it look like?
Wondering what exactly a glamour photoshoot is and what it looks like?
A photo session in my studio is a time when you will undergo a complete transformation. Not only on the outside but also on the inside. It will be your day of beauty and femininity. You will feel the most important, pampered and beautiful! It is a unique experience that I recommend to every woman.
These types of women’s photo sessions are aimed at presenting physical attractiveness and at arousing very specific emotions.
The glamour photo session is characterised by the fact that the models quite often appear naked, in lingerie or in clothes that strongly emphasise their sexuality. The poses and gazes captured in the photos are meant to be defiant, and often provocative. Playboy, Maxim or CKM are magazines that present glamour photographs. Every woman can be tempted by such a photo session and feel exceptionally seductive.
List of 10 questions to ask the photographer before the glamour session
- What does the photoshoot look like?
In a nutshell, it’s a good idea to approach a photoshoot like a meeting. That’s why we start by talking and then setting up the order of things to be dressed. It has to be casual and comfortable.
- Do you need a photoshoot shortlist?
Some photographers prefer to get a shortlist from the customer to make sure they know ahead of time what poses, groups, and locations are the most important to you.
- Will photos with our image be published somewhere?
Remember that photos or behind-the-scenes sessions with your image may only be published if you give us your consent.
- Who chooses the photos after the photoshoot?
It is important to agree with this in advance with the photographer to avoid unnecessary misunderstandings.
- How long is the photoshoot?
You will determine this issue at the pre-session meeting. It is important to specify the exact date and time of the meeting.
- Have you ever had a glamour session?
Once a photographer, male or female, has put themselves in their clients’ shoes and had a glamour session of their own (yes, men have glamour sessions, too!), they can fully understand how self-consciousness and nerves can play a role in almost every boudoir experience, because they have experienced it themselves! Having this type of the first-hand experience naturally helps any photographer become more empathetic and better equipped to help their clients deal with these same types of issues, should they arise.
- Do you work with a hairdresser or beautician?
A professional hair/makeup artist should be licensed and have experience working with all different skin types, ethnicities, and ages, as well as a wide variety of hair lengths, styles, and textures. It’s a good thing if for such a special session as a glamour session you put yourself in the hands of professionals to look even more beautiful!
- How do you handle payment for photoshoot?
Always find out if there is a deposit due before the shoot or on the day of the shoot as well as when the full payment is due. It is possible that there will be additional fees if your time goes over the scheduled session.
- Can you please go over your pricing with me?
Knowing the prices will save you from unnecessary stress or later misunderstandings and anger. Discuss it thoroughly before the session so that you have time to make a decision.
- When and in what form will I receive the image package?
This is a very important element to establish. You will avoid the stress and nervous countdown, and the photographer the constant phone calls.
Women forget how special they are, because they get caught up in day-to-day living. Gifting a woman with a glamour photography session will make her remember how beautiful she is– both inside and out. You can also make such a special gift yourself.
