FREE PHOTO SESSIONS
With top international photographer Amy Ward
(includes make-up artists)
ACTORS, MODELS & ENTERTAINERS
If you have excellent skin (completely smooth and clear) you are welcome to
book a free photo session at Award Studio. The sessions are usually 3-4
hours and you must arrive 5 minutes early and stay for the entire time. Our
make-up artists are trained in the latest camera make-up techniques including
HD and airbrushing. When they are in their advanced classes we bring in
actors, models and musicians for them to work on to build their make-up
portfolios. The only thing you pay for is $50 for a CD of all your best images
in high resolution. You can use these for head shots, websites, etc. We use a
professional lab and they include color balancing and minimal retouching. There
is a $5 fee to have the CD mailed to you about 3-4 weeks after the photo session.
You are required to pay the $55 on the day of the photo shoot. The lab only
takes cash, so please come prepared with the exact amount. You will have your
make-up done by 2-3 artists, wearing different clothing for each one.
Photos will be taken of each look. Please email recent photo to
email@example.com to be considered.
To be considered for our fashion shoots on location you must be slim (size 2-6)
and have a great fashion face. If you feel you qualify please email a
recent un-retouched full length photo with statistics to
firstname.lastname@example.org and please be sure to include your name and phone
WHAT TO BRING
Come with no make-up on but with hair camera ready. You can do minor hair
changes between outfits if you wish, as long as they are quick changes.
Bring 4-5 outfits (no white). The sessions are mostly shot in natural
daylight, but the studio is also available. Midweek we shoot actors' head shots
and 3/4 lifestyle shots. On the weekends we shoot fashion and beauty.
WHY ARE THESE PHOTO SESSIONS FREE?
The photographer is Amy Ward who has worked internationally for Vogue, Vanity
Fair, Marie Claire, etc. The only reason she is doing free photo sessions is
because they are for the make-up artists that she has trained. This enables the
make-up artists to build their portfolios and you can get great photos for
actorís headshots and modeling.
By law the photographer automatically holds the copyright to photographs they
take. The photographer, models, actors and make-up artists have the right to
use these pictures for personal promotion in the form of portfolios, business
cards, zed cards, head shots and their website. The photographer, Amy Ward, can
also use the photographs for brochures, books, training videos and magazines to
promote her work and Award Studio. The models, actors and make-up artists may
not give or sell the photographs to be used in advertising for another company,
editorial or other publication without first getting written permission from
the photographer, since she holds the copyright. You must read this before
booking a photo session. By booking a photo session it means you agree to these
Your Responsibilities After Award Studio Has Booked You
For A Photo Session
Once Amy has emailed you with the shoot date and
you agree then be sure to mark your calendar 7 days before to call and confirm.
This is very important. If you canít keep the appointment you must call
and give as much notice as possible - at least 7 days. Many of the
make-up artists fly in from all over the world to build their portfolios.
So it is essential that we have the right number of models/actors for each
artist. If you didnít show up there would be a make-up artist with no one
to work on. You must take the responsibility to call seven days ahead to
confirm and to let us know well in advance if you have to cancel. If you
have to cancel at the last minute you must send us someone to take your
place. This is a wonderful opportunity for you to get some great photos,
with make-up application included, at no charge. But we do require that you
take responsibility for everything listed above. And you must be on time.
