  • Educational workshops, classes, and events I am an experienced, patient, and easy-to-work-with model,
  • Photography trips – let’s explore beautiful and unique locations in Europe or abroad.

Make-up / Hair / Wardrobe2022-05-11T06:12:33-05:00
I am providing full makeup/hair/styling services. For any advanced/specific looks, I recommend hiring a professional make-up artist/hairstylist/stylist.

Make-up

Trained in Makeup, I am able to do my make-up to a very good standard, from natural to evening/glamorous looks.

Hair

I can do different simple hairdos from ponytails, braids, voluminous messy hair, bun, curls, to wavy hair. Additionally, I can bring short wigs upon request: black bob with bangs and brown pixie cut.

Wardrobe

Trained in Fashion Design, I can style my own sets. I also own a vast and carefully chosen collection of rare and photogenic outfits & accessories that would make most creatives envious.

My personal taste includes:

  • androgynous/business,
  • casual,
  • chic-glamourous/femme fatale,
  • eclectic/colorful/editorial,
  • feminine and sheer,
  • flowy outfits and fabrics for movement and dance
  • luxurious boudoir sets,
  • modern and traditional Asian fashion (Hanfu, Vietnamese, Japanese).
Rates2022-06-07T08:17:32-05:00

Rates upon request.

Modeling is my profession and livelihood and so I do not accept TFP/free collaborations. Read more: https://minh-ly.com/so-i-am-a-professional-model/

My regular rates apply from 08:00 to 20:00. For late night and early morning shoots, I charge an additional 40% plus taxi fare. Sunrise shoots are possible without an additional fee if you book me for a full day (8h).

I can provide you with an invoice.

I require 50% deposit to secure our booking, and the remaining 50% is due at the beginning of our shoot.

You can pay the deposit by bank transfer. Paypal is also possible with an additional 5% (platform commission).

Timing / Scheduling2022-07-01T08:40:38-05:00
  • The shoot starts and stops as agreed in my confirmation email,
  • If you choose to end our shoot earlier than agreed, my rates will not be prorated,
  • If our shoot is longer than 4 hours, we have at least one lunch/refreshment break (minimum 3omin),
  • Change of setup, hair, make-up, clothing, or travel between locations and breaks are included in my billable hours,
  • I will arrive at our shoot with my makeup and hair already done with a possible 5 – 10 minutes touch-up before we start. If you provide a makeup artist or hairstylist for the shoot, we can add one hour of the session without charge for preparation.

If anything comes up (72h or less before our shoot), call me at the phone number written in your confirmation email.

In the highly unlikely event I need to cancel, I will email/phone you as soon as I know.

Cancellation policy2022-03-08T11:03:54-05:00
  • From 15 days+ notice: deposit refunded in full,
  • Between 7 and 15 days notice: deposit non-refundable,
  • Less than 7 days notice*: payment due in full (deposit + remainder).

*It is often impossible for me to rebook shoots on such short notice and have as well considerable non-refundable travel expenses.

In the extremely unlikely event that I cancel, the deposit will be returned.

Covid-19 special conditions

For shoots booked that have to be cancelled due to government measures such as confinement or lock-down, the following conditions apply :

  • if I am already in your city/region, deposits will be partly refunded. I will keep just enough to cover travelling fees,
  • if I am still at home, deposits will be fully refunded.
