Booking Info

Communication

Communication is made by email (info@minh-ly.com) or via the Contact form. I usually reply within 1-7 days depending on the amount of work I have. What’s App, Telegram, BBM, Skype and calls are possible if in need of an immediate discussion. As I am not always available to do so, please schedule an appointment with me, if that is the case.

Your level of experience ?

It does not matter what your level of experience is. I am grateful to have being hired by both professionals and hobbyists, but I always make sure we are on the same page with inspirations and styles.

  • For those with less experience, I am confident to move through poses and can make suggest suggestions in lighting, angles, ideas, communication, achieving and choosing the best images possible.
  • For accomplished photographers, I love and appreciate to work deeper together on ideas, moods and connection.

Disclaimers :

  • Photographers that prefer models to be quiet and look pretty probably shouldn’t book me because I care about the process, the connection and the results. I can offer much more than just my physical appearance and this what my collaborators value when working with me.
  • I do not believe that just because you pay a model, he/she should do anything you want (unless agreed to those concepts/ideas prior to the shoot). If I feel uncomfortable with anything or it’s not in my taste, I will adapt the idea or suggest something else.

Limitations

I believe there is no bad genre of art. It is all in the execution and intention. However, my passion and interest lie in creating artistic imagery. Please use my portfolio as a guide to my comfort levels. If you require further clarification of my boundaries, I strongly encourage you to communicate with me.

Deposit and Cancellation Policy

A 30% deposit is asked at the time of booking to secure our shoot. Please understand that it is very difficult to rebook on short notice, and when travelling overseas I have a considerable amount of non-refundable overhead expenses (flights, trains, hotels, etc.). Refund for deposits are given if I am unable to commit or cancel. All transactions can be made either via Interac, Paypal or TransferWise.

I have never cancelled on a shooting. Once we agreed on time, location and emergency contacts, I will message you with a final confirmation with our shoot summary and, when accepted, there won’t be a need to reconfirm. If on the same day, there is any problem (delays, sickness, etc), please call or text me at the number provided in the shoot summary.

Terms and conditions :

  • The clock starts exactly at the agreed time, and ends exactly after the agreed number of hours (without time overflow). On a case by case basis, we can discuss an overflow at the beginning of the shoot, but, in general, I have to stick to my schedule as I am bounded to the constraints of my transportations
  • If we plan to shoot outside, I highly recommend having a backup indoor location. Cancellations due to weather will incur a fee (please see my cancellation policy)
  • If you choose to end our shoot early, my fee will not be prorated
  • Please inform me at the time of booking if you:
    • Want to cover me in any substance such as baby oil, mud, or paint. There must be facilities available to clean up, and sufficient time to do so must be allotted (within my billable hours).
    • Want me to pose with another model. Portfolio of the model will be asked.
    • Want to shoot me with another photographer. Please include his/her name and link to his/her portfolio so I can verify and approve. Normally, I expect to solely shoot one-on-one each time.
    • Want to use clothing or props that will leave marks (such as ropes, corsets, etc.) so I ensure you are the last shoot of the day to avoid marks for my next assignments.
