Your fee includes working with all of the attending models throughout the trip during the organized shoots. Hair and Makeup Artists and a photography assistant are also included. Models are also available to book privately for additional shooting at your discretion and according to their limits during any/all scheduled downtime. We find that shoots outside the normal course of the organized shoots may not be necessary as there is always plenty of time for one on ones that are inherent in a workshop with a 1:1 photographer to model ratio. However, if you desire additional shoot time this can be arranged. This is an all inclusive package and includes meals while on production and all lodging and transportation.
This is tropical island shooting at its best. We are limiting the number of photographers who will be able to attend this unique and exclusive event to 10 and will have a 1-1 ratio of photographers to models (8-10). 4 to 5 photographers will be in each group and there will be 2 separate groups. If booking for 4 days there will be 16 different models that will be available to shoot. Due to overstaffing there may be more than 4 models per group each day.
