I have a question for both the models and Photographers here. I am relatively new to model shooting and have set up a shoot next Wednesday with a new model. We have talked briefly about the ideas of the shoot with a understanding of what we will be doing. I told her I would let her know what she needs to bring for clothing before then. My question is after all that rambling is is it a bad idea to buy lingerie for the shoot for the model to wear or should I ask her to bring what she has and hope that it would be what I have in mind for the images? I can understand if this would be my everyday job to get wardrobe for the shoots but since I only do this on the side right now I don't want to scare the model off by buying her lingerie.

Any thoughts would be greatly excepted.

Mitch,

Do yourself a favor and find out exactly what the model has and make sure it is what you are looking for. I have had models show up with a whole bag of black lingerie. I have had models show up with dirty lingerie or stuff that was just worn out. Ask about stockings and shoes. I always keep "new" stockings and shoes just in case they are needed. I might add I have also worked with models that had everything you could want when they come to shoot.

Good luck..

Mike

She might not have what you want , and there is no reason she has to go and buy an outfit for one shoot.
So I would ask her if she wants to wear something you were going to buy for the shoot
just make sure you get her size

clear it up before the shoot , don't make her feel forced into it
" I bought this , you have to wear it " won't come across to well !!

Mike has a great point...make sure that the model has what you are looking for. The first time that I had a model in (and paid her) for a lingerie shoot, the model showed up with, well, NO LINGERIE! For weeks prior to the shoot, we talked constantly about what was going to happen, what kind of stuff she should bring and what not. The only thing she brought was a suitcase full of ratty old clothes and a couple of thongs and a couple of bras. Needless to say, it was the biggest waste of my money. I probably should have stood up for myself and told her to pound sand, but I was all geared up to shoot, so we shot.

Personally, I don't want to take the chance of buying anything without buying it for a specific person as a kind of compensation for the shoot. For example, I wanted some shots for a Christmas promotion for my studio and found the model. I then took her out to the store and bought the outfit that I wanted and made sure that it fit her correctly and that she was happy. Now, this outfit is a once a year wear, but I am sure that she will find some fun in it next year...if you know what I mean (yes, it was a sexy Mrs. Clause outfit).

Mike mentioned a few things to keep on hand, those I don't think would hurt because they fit a more wide range of models.

Good Shooting!!!!

Jeremy

I keep a decent wardrobe and buy stockings by the lot just for such instances. That way, I am not disappointed and usually can control the shoot from start to finish. Same with bikini, lingerie, etc....find a good, reliable and inexpensive source, it is well worth your time, effort and a little cash to assure that you have all the things you need as well as you would for your camera and lighting. No surprises...grins....good luck...Ralph
