Personal Stock Commision information

Tue Dec 20, 2016, 12:23 PM

.: Purple Lights

Happy holidays to any minion who is celebrating. Happy day to everyone else!

It has occurred to me that maybe I should pull back a bit of the curtain on my Personal Stock Commission info. I have let you all know before that I do personal stock commissions but what exactly is that and what is involved?

Personal stock is when you the artist make a request to me the provider of reference stock to build stock for your needs. This is far superior to wasting many hours looking for that "sort of fits the bill" stock we all have searched for.

When you consider what you need to take your art to the next level you look for a good model. But did you think to look at the actual costume? Or perhaps the lighting of the stock? Instead of having to take your vision and conform it to the images you find why not take control and make the images conform to your vision?

When I design stock I control the model chosen, the way it is lit and the costuming where possible or location. Most times these are constrained to my own personal budget. If I were a millionaire I would not even care about charging for my services. I love the process and working with the models. When I post stock it is more because I love the community and love to see what you the artists will do with it! So I reduce my rates to help.

So you are probably thinking that this would all be pretty expensive and not in the range of your budget (and as an artist my budget is normally 0 or under $100)

Now it is true that the costs can add up but lets just look at it and you be the judge.

So a base rate for one model for one hour ranges anywhere between $50 - $150. Depends on the model and the subject matter of the shots needed.
My base rate for just shooting stock for one hour  is $50 and goes up depending on the subject and the skills required for a particular shoot style.

A good calculation would be 1 hour of personal stock shooting with one model costs about $100. This does not include special costume requests or locations needs.

The best part about personal stock is you get to send your shot list. What you want and what angles you want. We also can arrange to have the shoot live streamed so you can watch and direct as we go. Finally any personal stock you commission comes with a automatic one year exclusive license. This means only you get the stock  for the first year. If you need permanent exclusivity this will be a separate charge.

Negotiations are available depending on the project. So do not hesitate to make us an offer.

Hope that makes things a bit clearer. Hope we get to hear from you soon!
