MODELS/CLIENTS - please read entirely

I have an online photo shoot interest questionnaire that all models will complete. This gives me an idea about what you have in mind for your photo shoot and also completes the model release. No photoshoot will be scheduled until this form is completed. Also, please note that all photography subjects must be 21 years of age. ID will be required prior to photoshoot. I am very interested to see your ideas. Do you have a location in mind? A really cool prop or wardrobe? Tell me as much as you can about your vision for our shoot. Of course, I’ll have input too. We will be shooting at my home studio in Surprise unless otherwise directed. Shoots will be at 10:00am to 1 or 2pm on either Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday or Friday. I do consider trade shoots for PROFESSIONAL traveling models only. For all trade shoots I will have another shooter with me that I am giving instructions to (workshop environment). Paid shoots will have the option of allowing a student, or not.

Shooting Suggestions, Guidelines and Policies
Escorts are always welcome, but please bring only one and someone who will not create stress or impede our creative efforts. No children or babies. Please, no glitter or bling on nails, lips or hair unless I have directed your make-up artist otherwise. Spray-on tans are not necessary, but can be nice if properly applied by a professional. All wardrobe should be in good condition, ironed or steamed and be camera ready to shoot. Bring only a few outfits folded or on hangers so we can place them on a rack to decide the looks we want to shoot. Bring accessories and any interesting props you have. Communicate with me, ideally a week prior to and again two days before the shoot. No message or confirmation with me within 48 hours of the shoot is an automatic cancellation. Please be on time. No photo's can be taken without a model release (see link below). Also, please note that all photography subjects must be 21 years of age. ID will be required prior to photoshoot.

 

Full Disclosure
I am a photo artist. I create art. If you are hiring me to shoot a creative portrait or theme you have creative control for your concept. However, if you are a professional model and we have agreed to shoot trade note that images may be published in my books, printed and displayed in art galleries, and submitted to various magazines. Art is to be seen and will appear on my websites, social medias or galleries. As copyright holder, Colby Files Photography sells prints, specialty items, gift items, and file downloads on various stock photo library sites. Also, please note that all photography subjects must be 21 years of age. ID will be required prior to photoshoot.
 

 

Meet the Artist - Colby Files

After being introduced to photography during college in the late 60’s, Colby worked as a photographer for the college and local newspapers. During this time he created a monthly column that featured photo layouts and bio for college coeds, which became his introduction to photographing beautiful women. The photos were taken with black and white film and Colby also performed the darkroom tasks.

After college, living in an agriculturally based community, he was hired to photograph small towns, land parcels, and broadcast radio towers. That period of shooting aerial photography provided for a modest income and made the airplane payment. Photography played an important part throughout his working career until retirement in 2011. After retirement, Colby immersed himself in the art he now considers “more than a hobby, but not quite a real job”.

Colby's work has been published nationally and internationally, won dozens of contests, and received many other accolades for photography. His highest honor came when his work was published on the cover of Photography Masterclass Magazine.
