Commercial / Stock Photography
I work with the world’s top photo stock agencies to sell images online for commercial purposes. Please find my current model call below, along with examples of how some of my stock images have been used recently. If you are looking to receive a free photo session and a CD with high resolution images from your session, along with an opportunity to have your child images featured in magazines, print and online publications online, becoming a stock model is a great choice. Please note that I do not work with designers and publications directly, my images are offered for commercial use via stock photography agencies such as Shutterstock, Istockphoto, Fotolia, Dreamstime, and several others.
All commercial models are required to sign a commercial model release prior to the session allowing me to include their images with my stock collection available for sale via microstock photography sites. Underage models require a parent/guardian to be present at the shoot, and to have the parent/guardian sign the model release form. All commercial sessions are TFCD: you will get a studio session with me and a CD with high resolution images from the session in exchange for your modeling time and a commercial model release. Subsequently, your images will be purchased by designers and used online and in print around the world. While I have no knowledge of who is buying which images and for what purpose, we will hopefully start finding your images in use within 1-2 years of the session (sometimes sooner, depending on the session).
All sessions will take place at my Reston studio. I will make suggestions about what to wear, and provide props. I am currently looking for these models:
1. Newborns (6-21 days old)
2. Babies 5-8 months old
3. Girls 4-7 years old, siblings 4-7 years old
4. Individual models and couples aged over 55 years old
5. Children and adults with special needs
5. Experienced models for beauty, fitness, themed commercial shoots
