Experience with professionals builds confidence, confidence gets you noticed, and getting noticed can lead to paid work!
The IslandBound Shoot Process
Before the Shoot – Our team will discuss details about the shoot through our instagram @Islandboundmodels. We will discuss a suitable time, date and setting for your shoot! Please feel free to share your ideas during this time so we can work together to create a fun and professional shoot that suits. We will also answer any questions you have regarding the shoot.
During the Shoot – You will meet at the agreed upon shoot location at the agreed-upon time. Once there, our team will recap what they want to get out of the shoot and then give you the IslandBound clothes we want you to model in. Once you are changed and ready, our photographer will begin the shoot. He will take you too different setting at the location, taking advantage of available light, interesting backgrounds or special features. He will also help you with posing suggestions during the shoot if needed. During the shoot, our photographer will offer you to change into the attire of your choice for the second half of the shoot.
After the Shoot – Our team will go to work on post-production of the photos. We will look through your shots and together identify your photos to be finished (“best-of” shots from the shoot). We will then professionally edit the selected photos and once done (usually within a week), our team will contact you and send through the finished photos alongside any other photos you want for your own portfolio.
