Hey Christina, I was going to do a shoot this up coming spring and it would be my first shoot ever. He is a good photographer (I know someone he's worked with and she's pretty well known now) and he's worked with some big names but I saw that you said for your first shoot you wouldn't suggest spending more than 500. His rates are high. It's 4 hours of unlimited shooting for $750 or 8 hours of unlimited shooting for $1200. Plus the cost of a makeup and hair artist if I choose to have one. Would you say I shouldn't go through with it? And if not, do you know a good photographer and makeup artist in the NYC area? Thanks!

If you live in the NYC area, try looking to photography students. NYC is one of the top regions for design schools. Many of the students have constant projects for which they need models. My best friend is a photographer at Parsons The New School of Design, where they started and film the well-known show Top Model. If you look in classifieds and school websites there are always photography students looking for models that will either take your pictures for FREE or even pay you. Best of Luck :)

Hey Cristina, sorry for the slow response. Yes he is located in NYC. I am looking for commercial print but I would like someone who can also take different types of pictures like editorial or something like that. Even if I don't use them in my portfolio I'd like to have them just for me. Thanks! Talk to you soon.
Still think that is really high... I would keep looking :)

There are tons of photographers, even published once, who can shoot just as good as these fancy photographers for TFCD. I have only been doing this since April 2010 so I am no proffesional by any means. I TFCD for the first few months and then I started getting paid around 250/hour for shoots. I am not shooting right now becasue I am aiming for hire things :) and have only been published once. You can find these photographers pretty much in any city. Just remember do not settle for "OK" go for the best you deserve!
Please excuse my spelling errors, I hit SUBMIT right as I noticed my mistakes!

Hi Lauren,

That is pretty high... Is he in NYC?

I can suggest several. You are looking for commercial print photographers right?
