Frequently asked questions:
The photography studio creates new studio sets often. For advertising purposes, each new studio set requires sample images taken with models. In order to commence advertising right away, these sample images need to be shot and completed as soon as a new set is built. The model call sessions are designed for body positive clients who display confidence during their photo sessions. Model call photos will be used as a tool to sell other women on the idea of booking a boudoir session; the portrayal of confidence and self-love in these photos is key. For first time shooters the best option is to book a regular priced photo session so to gain experience in front of the camera before applying for the discounted model call sessions.

Future Modeling Opportunities:
Having images like these will have amateur and hobbyist photographer knocking down your door to shoot with you. The sky is the limit for your modeling if you have high quality modeling images in your portfolio.
Model call discounts will only be offered to those whose schedule permits the short notice needed for advertising new sets.
Must sign an irrevocable model release. In exchange for signing a model release, you receive a huge discount on your boudoir photo session.
Modeling in both lingerie and implied nude. Implied nude means you appear nude but the camera cannot see any of your privates (example: posing with bed sheets covering you). All "model call" photos will be social media friendly. Nude posing is alright; nude images will be censored when being used by Vertigo Productions for advertising purposes.
Arrive with the following "shoot ready"; hair, makeup, eyebrows, body hair, toe nails, finger nails (polished or at least not chipped). Full glam is not mandatory; wear your hair and makeup whichever way makes you feel the most confident and sexy. Hair clips on the back of the head will get in the way of poses when asked to lay on the bed.
Considering all ages 18+, shapes, sizes, and skin tones.
Cis Female, Trans Female, Non-Binary.

Models chosen for a "Boudoir Model Call" discount will sign a full model release. If you do not want to sign a model release you may pay full price, keeping your photo sessions private and confidential.

Don't be early:
Arrive to studio appointments no sooner than 5 minutes prior to your start time; the photographer uses the time between appointments to prepare the studio for the next session, make scheduled phone calls, or take scheduled breaks. There is only one FREE client parking spot on the property and downtown parking is limited, so please enter and exit your Vertigo parking space in a timely manner in case there is a client scheduled before or after your time slot.
Don't be late:
Time slots cannot be reduced or upgraded at the last second.
A guest is a person who is not having their photo taken. To reduce the photographers exposure to viruses and to limit distractions to both model and photographer which WILL effect the overall outcome of the session, guests are not permitted in the studio unless express permission is granted BEFORE booking. Vertigo Productions will not be held liable for photos not taken due to guest distractions.
Solo boudoir sessions are for cis women, trans women and non-binary, age 18+. Your photographer is comfortable shooting female / feminine nudity.
If you want a man to join you for your session he must be respectful, professional and be wearing shorts or pants during the appointment. Your photographer does not offer solo male boudoir and is not comfortable shooting nude male bodies at any time, with no exceptions. I would be happy to recommend a male photographer who offers DOUDOIR sessions.
No Behind The Scenes (BTS) photos or videos are to be taken in the studio at any time unless discussed with your photographer prior to your session date. Your photographer is not comfortable being filmed or photographed.
Now and then I'm asked why I do not include champagne or other alcohol with my boudoir packages; because it is because it is illegal and requires a liquor license both to sell AND give for free, whether it is considered an incentive to book a session or outright included in a businesses pricing structure.
Notify the photographer; prior to booking, of any medically induced sensitivities to flashing or blinking lights.
The photographer will have more creative freedom shooting models without glasses. Let your photographer know PRIOR to booking if you want to wear glasses during your session. Lighting will be set up differently if anyone is wearing glasses so this must be discussed upon booking.
The Vertigo client closet includes access to maternity gowns, lingerie, high heels, jewelry, accessories for women size XS-5X. If you like or need support, it is recommended that you bring a supportive bra, supportive underwear, body shapers and spanx to wear underneath because some garments in the client closet are sheer and lack support. (Nude or black undergarments). Feel free to bring your own wardrobe.
Boudoir sessions will show feet. The client closet currently has heels size 6-10. Feel free to bring your own heels. Any shoes worn in the studio must be dry and clean.
The studio is wheelchair accessible and carries business liability insurance. All equipment is carried in duplicate in case something should malfunction. Dual In-camera memory cards record every photo in duplicate in case one should malfunction.
