I am a non-commercial photographer. I always work on TfP (Time for Print): that means that I do not charge you anything for my photography. At the same time, I will not pay you to model for me. No salary or wages, and also no fees to cover the costs you make related to the photo shoot.
Hence, my photography is for personal use only. No commercial use is allowed.
I am not available for commercial work like baby portraits, communions, weddings, etc. If you are looking for someone to cover the special events in your life, I can refer you to some of my friends and colleagues.
I only ask that I can publish a selected number of photos as part of my portfolio.
I usually work with a basic model release outlining the our agreement, including the fore mentioned TfP and non-commercial use requirements. You can download a copy of my model release(opens in a new tab) to read all details.
I will also use a call sheet(opens in a new tab) for complex shoots (working with multiple models, photographers, makeup artists, …). This call sheet contains important information like names and contact details of everyone involved with the photo shoot, date and time, meeting points, locations, etc.

If you are younger than 18 years old (legal age in Belgium), I won’t allow you to pose in latex on my shoots.
Good make-up makes a world of difference for the photos. I prefer to have a make-up artist on set. Over the years, I’ve been working with a number of make-up artists. I have a good working relationship with them. Some work on based on TfP like me. Some only accept paid assignments.

You can also bring your own make-up artist if you like. Or you can do your own make-up if you like.
Studio or Location
I can work both in studio or on location. I have a decently equipped studio at home and a spare room that doubles as dressing room. The use of my studio at home is free of charge.
If you want to use another studio, you will have to bear the possible cost (studio rent, …) that incurs from using that studio.
I am always open to working on location. A nice location adds something extra to a photo. Depending on the theme of the shoot and our ideas, I will help you look for a suitable location. If rent is due for a location, you will have to pay it.
During the shoot
[to be completed]
If you don’t want to come all alone to the photoshoot, I don’t mind if you bring an escort. Bring your sister, a friend or one of your parents. As long as your escort is 18 years or older, I don’t mind.
As a matter of fact, if you are a minor and you want to model for me, I insist having one of your parents (or a legal guardian) on set.
I’ll be honest though: I would prefer it if you do not bring your boyfriend. I know from experience that having a boyfriend on set is often too big of a distraction for a good photoshoot.
After the shoot
At the end of the shoot, I will transfer the images to my computer. The model can review the images and make a selection of his/her favourite photos. I will base my selection of photos I edit on the model’s selection
On average, I will edit and deliver between 5 and 12 photos of a photo shoot to you. I will make sure there is at least 1 fully edited photos per outfit/setting. It usually takes me between 4 to 6 weeks to finish editing my selection of photos.
You will receive a link to a personal album on my Dropbox. I’ll send that link via email or a PM on Facebook Messenger or Instagram. The Dropbox album will contain the final edit of my selected photos.
The photos will be delivered in JPG format and are optimized for publication on social media and/or prints up to 30cm x 20cm. The maximum resolution of the photos will be 2048 pixels by 1365 pixels.
Your album will be available on my Dropbox at least 6 months after I send you the link to the album. I advise you to download all photos to your personal device and archive them for future use.
The photos I deliver to you are optimized for prints up to 30cm x 20cm. Any decent print lab will be able to print my files. You are allowed to print as many copies of the photo for personal use as you like (commercial use is not allowed).
If you decides to print the photos yourself from the files I provided, I can not be held responsible for the quality of the print.
For larger prints or if you want to certain of the print quality, please contact me. I collaborate with a couple professional photo labs that will print for me. I will provide you with a price quite upon request.
