In this page, I will try to describe how I work for people photography service.
For other kind of inquiry, please contact me directly.

1. Let's get to know each other!

Going for a shooting with me is a bit like meeting with a longstanding friend you haven't seen for a while. I won't ask you to pose or give me the best of you right away because it's fundamental to establish trust and fun relationship first. Read more about me.

In order to make the best of our collaboration, I strongly recommend you to share about any previous shooting experiences. What was great and what was not so we could align our expectations and boundaries.

The process may be long if you lack of self-confidence but this is okay. The result matters, not the time we spend to get it. I'll ensure to be friendly enough to remind you why we are here.

2. The shooting

A first time is generally planned in a public place to tighten security feeling; then from there, we basically turn our meeting into a very casual photo-walk.

My shooting process is rather very spontaneous as we walk and see things around and as ideas arise, we try things and shoot together. There is no leader in the shooting, this reveals the essence of a successful collaboration.

No specific time limit, I value the quality moment with my models instead of the quantity. By experience, generally not less than one hour and up to a whole afternoon if the project and connection are strong!

According to the type of shooting, we may sign a Model Release Form in order to cover the legal aspect of the delivered photos.

As far as I know, going for a shooting with me is fun, that what my latest models suggest. Being able to combine silliness and conscientiousness makes the best results and a good memory.

3. Debrief'

Once the session is over, we will stay in touch for the post-session feedback and photos, of course! After a first selective sorting, I will send you a contact sheet so you could pick the photos you like the most as a final delivery and you will also tell me which photos you absolutely don't want to be published.

If you enjoyed the experience, the next shooting sessions could be more straightforward as we meet and shoot: let's get the job done!

Maybe there are some photos you would want printed as gift or even framed. In that case, I can advise you since this is something I've already done very successfully.

Agreed-upon understandings

A few things you must know before reaching out:

  • Models are legally adults
  • Shooting sessions are exclusive to collaborating parties only (no extra guest, assistant, escort, etc.)
  • Extra fees are either yours or shared depending on the project
  • Photos delivery is expected between 2 and 6 weeks after the shooting
  • Photos are delivered in highest quality and watermark-free
  • Photos alteration is prohibited
  • Photos selling is not permitted unless ahead agreement
  • Photos printing is allowed
  • Photos may be published/featured for self-promotion purposes
  • Any publication must indicate my full name Joris Berthelot and a link to my portfolio https://joris.berthelot.photography

Some of the previous points may be relaxed when working in a collaboration mode.
