If the shooting details have been agreed upon, the deposit has been paid and I have sent the confirmation, then our shoot is confirmed. If I have not written you an email explicitly containing the sentence “I have to cancel your shoot”, the shoot is still on and planned, even if you don’t hear from me in the 72 h preceding it.
I understand that some photographers have had bad experiences with models not showing up for a shoot and need several confirmations, the week before, the day before, and then the same day, but I can reassure you that I will be present at the agreed time and location (feel free to check my testimonials or ask around for references).
On short-notice queries (72h or less), if I do not reply, I may simply be busy on a shoot, in transit, or lack a stable internet connection, in which case, please call me directly at the phone number written in your confirmation email, or at the emergency number (my husband) if you get no answer. If I am unable to answer your call, I will call you back as soon as possible.
