EROTIC MODELLING FAQ’S
We answer some of the questions & concerns you may have about working in the Adult Industry
Q: What do I have to bring to the test photo shoot?
There are several things, which you will need to bring to the photo shoot with you in order for it to run smoothly.
We ask you to bring some of your own clothes for the shoot. We do this for several reasons. Firstly as it will be your first shoot, we find our models feel more comfortable in their own clothes and secondly, as they belong to our models, we know they will be a perfect fit.
You will find a list of suitable clothes at the end of this document.
Bring a few alternatives with you and we will find the best ones for the specific shoot.
Important: Don’t forget to bring 2 forms of ID. At least one ID will need to show your date of birth and your current full address. Without ID, the shoot will be cancelled straight away.
Q: Will I get paid for test shoots?
Yes, rates will vary depending on the project but we insist that models are fully paid for any ‘test’ shoots.
Q: How long do the shoots last?
The shoots usually last between two to three hours. Please make sure you schedule at least three hours for the entire shoot.
Q: Who will be present during the shoot and can I bring a friend?
Normally there will be at least two people present, the photographer and the make-up artist. You are welcome to bring a friend, but we do not allow boyfriends/girlfriends on set as they tend to interrupt the work of the photographer.
Q: Will I have to sign a contract and what paperwork do I need to bring?
No, you do not need to sign a contract. You will have to sign a model release form that says that you are aged 18 or over and that you consent to your photographs been used (a copy of the model release form will normally be sent beforehand, it’s only available in English as most of our customers are based in English speaking countries). When signing a model release form, you will have to have identification with you, such as a passport, birth certificate, driving licence etc. (Important: if you do not valid identification that proves your age, your shoot will be canceled and you won’t get paid).
Q: I've seen websites where the models are expected to have sex with the agent in return for work. Does this really happen?
No, the content on those websites is staged. We take client safety very seriously and expect the highest standards from all our staff and clients. Anyone who doesn’t maintain those high standards will find their services are no longer required.
