For you newbies and some old pros looking for a marketing angle and a chance to meet potential models, it is Hooters Calendar time. The deadline for entries is Feb 10th. The young lady must submit 4 body shots and 2 headshots no bigger than a 5 x 7. I was in a Hooters having lunch last week while my car was being worked on. My server Shelsea was trying to get me to buy the current calendar and I asked are you in here and she answered no but I am trying to enter this year. I asked if she had a photographer, she answered there had been a couple in the place trying to get the girls to sign up but they were pricing their services far beyond the girl's income. I gave her my card and quoted a price. I have this week shot with four girls and two others are interested. This is from one restaurant. Keep in mind they are not rich and this is a crap shoot. If you were shooting them TFP and providing a CD what did you spend?

Anyway, thought it might interest some.

Oh and by the way, I asked about the other photographers. The girls said they looked like creeps but I looked like someone's grandfather and I talked professionally. They said they felt far more comfortable with the idea of working with me.

Are the images you shoot the ones that end up in the calendar? Or are they just trial stuff?

Do you mind telling me - even via PM - what you charged for a session like this?

If you all read my thread on model release forms, yep I messed up and didn't get her signature first. Beware!

They always say the others looked like creeps. Maybe you’re a better tipper, haha.
Very nice Mikey.

Okay, how I priced it does not really apply to anyone here and here's why I say that. I am closing down the Austin studio on January 31st. I would like to be shooting as much as possible between now and then. I'll do outdoor stuff until I move to Nashville but I want to use the studio. TFPs are fine, but at the moment the young lady talked to me I thought it better to quote an amount than explain what the hell TFP is, especially since she already told me the other photographers were creepy. So in my head I did the math on what I charge my clients for a 5 x 7 print, I multiplied that by 6 and I cut that number by 75%. Keep in mind I could have just said 'Free' but that might have scared them. I explained fully that they were getting a deal because I was closing down. Three of the girls showed up together. I spent 30 minutes on each model total as I rotated them between outfits. I only changed the background once. So what they are paying me covers paper, ink, and the water they drank I guess. So price what works for you. As an add on two girls are now going to do follow up TFCDs on their own and they are bringing girl friends. I will probably be busy until I close the studio and it becomes a master bedroom again. And in the end that was my goal. If you still want to know a dollar amount PM me.
