In order to provide everyone with the most comfortable time in front of the lens, we have a few standard practices and guidelines we adhere to at every shoot:
We like to use what we call a Model Wrangler whenever possible. A Model Wrangler is someone who acts as a liaison between our models and our photographers. A Wrangler talks with the model before the shoot, offers advice on poses, keeps a broad picture outlook on the shoot while the photographers stick to their viewfinders. Our photo shoots are a ton of fun, and a Model Wrangler is a great way to keep everyone focused!
Zero Contact Policy
In addition to using a Model Wrangler, we also have a Zero Contact policy. No VMAD photographer or Wrangler is going to touch a model in any way unless we get verbal permission to do so ahead of time - every time. If your hair is dipping into your eyes, or the fluff of a pillow is blocking a shot, we're not going to reach out and make any adjustments without you being comfortable with it. Consent is a beautiful thing, and that means we need to honor it, before every adjustment. It might be a bit labor-intensive or annoying at times, but in the end it means you're keeping control of your shoot.
