Light of Some Kind Copyright David Birdsong Photography
Please read my entire profile before messaging me.
Thanks for stopping by! My name is Tiffany, and I have been modeling since mid December of 2006. Modeling quickly became my biggest passion in life. For the first three years I built my portfolio, working sometimes twelve to fourteen hours straight on TF to build a career out of this from the ground up. From the start I have had no problem pushing myself to the limits or coming up with varying concepts for shoots.
Photographers have often commented that I am definitely different than anyone they've ever worked with, and a blast to be around. I can't count the number of times I've heard "I've never met anyone like you in my life, and I mean that in the best of ways," both in my personal and professional life. I am energetic, creative, driven, professional, and reliable.
My shooting style varies widely, and I have no problem pushing myself to the limits or coming up with varying concepts for shoots. I am the model that will push the limits within reason, that will scale building walls without a net in high heels and lingerie in broad daylight in the middle of a city park, or lay on frozen rivers outdoors in 7 degree weather in the buff, or insert myself into bars and pose on pianos in public while the band is playing (with permission of course), to get a great shot. I do my best work outside of the studio, but work just as well in structure as outside of it.
At first I wasn't sure what I was going to do with this. I saw it as a hobby but didn't yet have a plan for where it was going. After five years experience though, I would love to launch this as a full time career. Currently I am working on several small plans of action that will hopefully help this dream blossom into the full fledged monster I would like it to be. So without further ado, please see below for my specifics. :P
I am currently working on building my own web site. Please be patient as it will take some time for it to get finished. I will put a notice up when it is launched. In the mean time you can either email me here or at email@example.com
I plan to put a print store on the web site when it gets launched. Some of my photographers have agreed to allow me to sell prints through this print store, with a contract giving them a commission of profits. Just to be clear, the print store is entirely to sell PRINTS, not the picture itself for any use. I will not be selling prints I do not have permission to sell. Also, if you would like, and if you are selling prints of photos taken of me, I will put a buy button under the picture in my web site gallery which, when clicked on, takes the buyer directly to the location where they can buy the print online where you are selling it, or a page that gives your information for them to contact you to buy the print. An example would be the print selling of me on fineartamerica. The way I see it, the more exposure the pictures have, the more prints will sell, as well as the exposure of seeing you credited and if a client is interested, I will forward your information to them if they would like to hire you for a project.
I do understand that when a model signs a release she is signing over copyright to the photographer. I do expect to have written in contract that the pictures will not be used for pornographic or adult entertainment purposes. I am not a smut model. Also, I have had a few photographers agree to shared copyright. If you are willing to do this please let me know. Again, more exposure equals more income.
I do have a few side projects that require the photos taken to not have copyright already. The web site that these photos are used for auto copyrights all images upon upload. The images are used for contests. This is a separate case, and if you'd like to work on this or I contact you to work on this with me please note that I am still aware that in all other shoots apart from this project copyright is still retained by the photographer, and I agree NOT to use any photos not taken under the side project conditions for this project.
Compensation Paid Work Preferred Working for free is an Oxymoron.
For the most part I prefer to not do TF shoots. I can not, when this is my only source of income, pay out money to shoot with you without getting anything out of it and going in the hole.
If we are shooting some nude some clothed, the clothed rate applies for the time spent shooting clothed, the nude rate applies for the time spent shooting nudes. So if in the same shoot we spend 2 hours shooting clothed 1 and a half shooting nude, the rate would be 2*50 + 1.5*75 = 212.50. I do round my rates down. So for this shoot it would be 200.00. A flat rate is set for prolonged shoots. My time on the clock does not include travel time. I don't expect you to pay me for my time to get to you.
I am available for travel as long as my scheudle permits depending on my financial situation. If expenses are paid, I'm all for it.
Escort I prefer to shoot with escort unless I have worked with you before. My husband escorts me to shoots and he does not interfere in them. He has been known to be helpful to them. Please understand that this is the web, and I don't know you any more than you know me. Though I don't allow the horror stories to slow me down, I don't want to become one, either. This is non negotiable for me. If an escort is NOT an interference on a shoot, I do not see the problem with me having someone I know present if your motives are truly well intended, unless you have something to hide. Hopefully we can all work together to make shoots productive for all involved.
[B]What I Expect Out of You and What You Can Expect From Me.[/B]
I expect photographers to act professionally at all times. I expect what is agreed upon to be delivered in a timely fashion. On all shoots I expect images back that are EDITED, RETOUCHED AND/OR PHOTOSHOPED As NEEDED, AKA REAL PRO PICS NOT KID WITH EXPENSIVE CAMERA PICS, OR permission to have them done. Raw images are not suitable for portfolio usage.
I expect releases to include all specifics of what is AGREED upon, and I expect BOTH of us to have completed, signed copies of all contracts and releases. All releases and contracts should include who owns copyright, what the pictured can and can not be used for, both the model and photographer's rights, compensation, both present and future, liability measures, reproduction and use release agreements, and free will and consent.
I promise to be reasonable, but if we are going to do business together, we will do so with equal respect for each other. I will not sign a release unless I am compensated in a fair and reasonable way and I agree with it in full. Specifics in this regard are negotiable.
Please understand that these stipulations are not meant to be offensive. However, I will not be taken advantage of and I would like things to remain respectful, fair, and professional.
