The modelling photo shoot package is ideal for anyone looking to add to or create a portfolio.  The photos can range based off your needs.  An actor may be looking for a variety of head shots where a fashion models portfolio may require more full body shoots. Executives and professionals typically are looking for head shots or location half body photos. Family and cosplay portfolio pictures can be almost anything creative and fun.

Photo shoot wardrobes are always flexible.  For beginners it’s best to keep it simple.  The goal is to create photos that showcase you and not the clothes.  Simple things like scarf’s, gloves, coats, shoes or shirts can quickly change the look.  Combine this with multiple locations during the photo shoot and quickly you’ll have a range of pictures that will fill your portfolio.  If you need help don’t worry, we’re here for that too and can work with you or a stylist to get the look you’re wanting.

An image license covers the photo and how that image will be used and where.  A photographers costs cover all the other things that go in to creating a professional photo.  Items like equipment, time, knowledge operating costs etc… all factor in to a photographers cost.

As with any other service professional we require a small upfront payment to hold your spot.  This is then deducted from the overall package cost after the photo shoot has been completed.

I recently had some new head shots taken by David, The pictures look great and David was a pleasure to work with, we tried lots of different looks and lots of different backgrounds . I was given lots of freedom to move around and try different things. I would definitely recommend DR photos to anybody looking for a great quality photographs.

David created some fun and creative photos of my daughter showcasing her passion for dance. The pictures were amazing and really captured her personality! It was hard to choose which ones to use for our collage portrait! Fabulous work!

Why work with David Reid?

Over the years I’ve developed a workflow that’s all about making it easy and simple.  There is a very important reason why I worked hard to develop this process.  The more relaxed you are as a model the better the photos will turn out.  It’s that simple.  Combine this with my photo skills and a creative approach focused on you looking your best and you have a winning combination.  Working in the Toronto (GTA) region I am available throughout Southern Ontario including Pickering, Ajax, Whitby, Oshawa, Bowmanville and Markham.  If you’re outside that area no worries I’m always travelling around and certain we can arrange something that works for you.
