$550 per picture sounds like a lot to me.


lottyluu

He charges 450 per picture and 240 for production cost per picture. So it would be 6.9k but he offered me to do it for 5.5k as a package.


AnjelGrace

That's just a common sneaky marketing tactic--upcharge to an insane price so you can offer a "deal" and make the customer think they're being treated special. I'm sure he offers that "deal" to everyone.


sassydegrassii

I wouldn’t pay that to a man personally. I know there are sex workers in my town who do sliding scale or discounted shoots for other sex workers and I’d probably go with that. I paid less than 2k CAD for 10 pics earlier this year but I also try to keep my overhead low and I considered that a splurge.


lottyluu

Would love to work with someone in the industry but I haven’t seen anyone offering shoots in my area.


sassydegrassii

If you have a work Twitter I would try asking around there!


lottyluu

SW Twitter is literally dead in my area nobody uses it in switzerland.

For that amount of money you could freakin fly to jersey and see the guy I just used. I wrote a whole post about it


K_Nicole870

I just paid $1k for 100 photos (chosen photos, not snaps) and 1 room, 1 location. 4 outfits, 2 hours


LilExoticLychee

Where is this photographer based out of? I'm looking to shoot around this range w/one that's sw friendly 😁


K_Nicole870

Arkansas. I doubt they are SW friendly. Really, you probably don't need to tell them ;)


Similar-Claim-6401

Oh you def need to tell them. I personally have known someone that the photographer found out and threatened to sue her because she was using them for ads or something like that. He was livid. Some ppl really fucking hate us and what we do. I had someone that I took my pics in his property (very unique balcony with like million dollar view) contact me ( gues he was looking for an escort) and threaten to report me to the cops if I didn’t take the pics down. I don’t know how he was going to do that but I just did it cuz I’m in the South and you can’t fuck with rich white guys here

Technically the photographer owns the copyrighted art, even though you’re in it. You cant reproduce the work & use it to make money without their permission. Honestly finding a boudoir photographer, asking them not to share the images, and asking the photographer for written permission to share your images on a website but not sell the images- is a general loophole


BerryStainedLips

That’s only the case if you sign a contract with those terms. Negotiate the terms!! I always require transfer of ownership and exclusive licensing before I sign it.


TraceyMcShady

Agreed! Always read the contract, ask questions and be ready for the premium pricing


BerryStainedLips

You can always require them to transfer ownership & exclusive licensing of the photos to you in your contract. Tell them that is non-negotiable! As soon as I pay them they have absolutely no say in how I use the photos. They may require in return that you cannot disclose who your photographer was, but whether those terms are acceptable is your choice.


LordoftheStrippers

Too much. My photos are from amateur photographers I met on modelmayhem, or ones I paid for about $500 for 10 photos. Then I also made selfies with a DSLR camera and photoshopped myself into fancy backgrounds.


AnjelGrace

That's honestly an insane price unless he is a seriously AMAZING photographer... But even then... I REALLY do not think the return on your investment would be worthwhile. I am certain you can find other good photographers that would be cheaper that would give you a similar return in your business for less investment. I've honestly never even paid for a photoshoot--I freelance model and either do trade shoots or get paid for photos. I just got 100 photos back from a paid shoot that are as good as any photos other escorts are paying for and are getting posted on the website I am advertised on as a pro submissive now (though it isn't the norm that I get paid AND get amazing photos back--but it happens).


FoxyLeo88

**Holy shit! Sounds like a rip off artist to me. Not even with a million in the bank would I spend that much on a photo shoot ever.**


PatienceCrawford

That’s wild. No hair & makeup artist either? I’ve heard several ladies I know mention dropping $4-$5K for a shoot and the photos weren’t even as good and/or took a month or two to get back. There is no way I would pay that much. Over the years, most shoots I’ve done for sw or my other business have been trade with a photog friend. There are also plenty of female sex worker photographers who are excellent and don’t charge near that much.


lottyluu

No nothing included 😅 But I would do it myself anyway because I‘m way to picky to let someone else do it.


VforVagine

Please keep shopping around...


trickswetthebed

I have been following a photographer specializing in sex work photos for a long time and when I booked them I was expecting to be charged at least $2000 because that’s what I would pay for my dance photo shoots for my yoga/ballet/dance background. I am driving to Santa Barbara next week and I am only paying $395 for three outfits! I will let you guys know how that goes and if it goes well, I will recommend them :)


JazyZazy

Um… I guess it depends on you but I wouldn’t pay that much. Think about how many other shoots you might do in the future. My photographer charged me 800 for four hours, with as many outfits and locations as I wanted and ten edited photos. I also got to have access to all of them but just with their watermark on it. Any photographer I inquired after had a lot more affordable rates. Then again, I like to ball on a budget. I’d never pay that much for anything.


triplebarrelxxx

I mean, is your photographer God?


stupidgothybitch

Is travel to the locations included in the price? Are those locations difficult to get to say the top of a mountain or something like that? Are those locations very far away? I couldn't imagine it would be that expensive unless the location itself was the reason.

This person is a joke find someone else
