Everything Models Need to Know About Remote Shoots
As our platform expands, we have been booking more and more remote shoots! One of our models, Áine Campbell, sat down to talk to Backstage about how to successfully shoot from home.
1. Preparation is key.
Because you’re taking on so many different roles during remote shoots, prep beforehand so you can save time and aren’t worrying about logistics the day of the shoot. E.g. choose your outfits, decide on hair and makeup looks, find the room in your apartment with the best light etc.
2. Have the right equipment.
Make sure you have your tripod - this makes shooting from home much smoother. We recommend one with a bluetooth remote you can discreetly hold to take pics or turn on the camera's timer to take pics. A ring light can be helpful too.
3. Research the brand to avoid re-shooting.
Practice your poses with the product that you have been sent and take a look at the mood board from the client or their website/social media, so that you can understand their aesthetic and don’t have to reshoot something.
4. Client communication
Sometimes a client doesn't like what they receive and the model may need to do a reshoot. To make sure the client is getting what they want from you, have them on a video call while you're shooting or send them a pic of your set, outfit and suggested poses before you start.
