How To: Organise A Model Photoshoot For Under $400

If I had a jewellery business and wanted to upgrade my content for the best price and quality ratio… without hiring an expensive jewellery photographer, how would I do it?


1.

Plan and pre-meditate 15 layered jewellery looks you’d like to have photographed - $0

2.

Find a freelance professional model that would agree to work for $100 per hour and book her for 3 hours.

3.

Book a makeup artist - find the best-rated beauty salon the model can go to prior to the shoot (check their profile prior to sealing the deal) - this should cost approx. $70, depending on where you’re based.

4.

Ask the model to get a fresh manicure done prior to the shoot - $30

Find a jewellery photoshoot location- you can find a free location for your shoot in nature or in town, provided you scout it prior to your session - $0


6.

Sort out the wardrobe - you can either make an order on high-street / ASOS and return everything afterwards to get a full refund or collaborate with local designers and boutiques - $0
