Enjoy a modelling experience with Monapics

Want a glamour or boudoir shoot just for yourself? You know you will always look glamorous to the one that loves you!!! Just a few situations where the gift of portrait session will be truly appreciated for many years to come. You can use our studio in Renfrew, your home. or hotel as the studio and feel much more relaxed in your chosen surroundings. Now with free prints included!

I Thought it would be helpful to give you an idea of what to expect from a booked studio model portfolio session with George at Monapics.com. Please use the other links to see the outdoor or Glasgow Nights style sessions.

Each session usually lasts up to three hours and will have a few changes in costumes/dress for the user and lighting set-ups from myself. Attire is up to the individual concerned and I will work to within your comfort levels. Most models will work to at least lingerie, swimwear etc. The choice of clothing is obviously yours. Underwear should be new with the labels removed. Shoes should also be new or only used for modelling with clean soles and uppers. Shaving your legs the day before a shoot in not a good idea. Do this at least a few days in advance and allow any redness to disappear. Fake tan is a nightmare and shows up orange and or blotchy in the final images please allow this to fade completely before your shoot. Unless of course you wish to look as if you have been Tangoed!

You should be able to do your own makeup and hair to a fairly high standard to achieve the look you wish to create. Photographic makeup is not the same as you would normally apply going for a night out and you have to ensure your skin has no shiny bits so makeup is generally matt in appearance. Shiny skin (or sweat!!) creates hot spots that will reflect studio light and does not tend to look too great in pictures. The inhouse highly qualified make up artist and hair stylist can be provided at extra cost. This extra cost is very worthwhile to create a new and unique look for you and your images. Cannot stress too highly what an advantage this is to you ans would suggest this for every session.

I have included some images below from a studio session with the model Debbie Shaw to give you an example of what can be achieved and to expect to create some differing looks. Click the links above Debbies picture for other options available to add variety to you model portfolio. Please remember though that Debbie is a professional model and is excellent in front of the camera.

Before you arrive: try and have your hair/make-up ready (to save you time) and you should try out some poses that you would like to use when being photographed. Please remember not to wear any tight or restrictive clothing for a few hours prior to arrival (that includes tight waisted jeans, bra, etc.) as this leaves banding marks around your body which is seen very easily in camera and the resulting pictures.

Sincerely hope you enjoy your studio session as they should be fun and a pleasure to participate in. Hope to hear from you real soon. A booking fee is required before any studio session or outdoor location shoot. This is non refundable if you no show but every effort will be made to rebook you at another time. Payment can be taken over the phone or in person as required.
