In these times of hardship, I was wondering how many of you lovely models are happy to shoot with 2 or 3 photographers so they can share your costs. I know that some of you charge per day more than I earn in a week (I'm not knocking this as you do a job which I couldn't) but would you be happy to work with this arrangement so that you're more financially accessible to us mere mortals. We're not talking a group shoot here - just one model with 2 or 3 photographers.

Any comments girls (and boys)?

Yeah I can't see why that would be a problem, I've certainly done shoots like that before x

It's quite common, I have photographers working together on a shoots at my studio, usually 3 or 4 hour bookings between a couple of photographers. Models get longer bookings as does the studio.

No problem at all with that... depending on the style of image being taken and how the photographers work. As a small group of photographers, you have the option of taking it in turns to shoot, or one taking the central shooting position whilst the other two shoot 'over his shoulder' so to speak. This kind of shooting is fine (in general) for all types of shots where nudity isn't involved. I think, and I'd hazard a guess that most models would agree, if shooting nude there needs to be only one person taking images at any one time - to avoid, for example, an open leg shot when the model doesn't do open leg, or 'Little Joel' making an appearance in a frame when I don't do frontal nudity...

Speaking from a togs point of view and someone who has mentored studio sessions, always work one to one and take turns!

The "press pack" method can never work and the results will usually be poor..too many cooks comes to mind!! The model and photographer need to focus on each other with clear instructions given by the tog that the model can respond to without feeling she/he is in the middle of a bunch of paps!

I have worked like this plenty of times and it works really well!
Usually better when the photographers take it in turns as sometimes can be a little confusing in which direction were too look.. Lol
But generally it's a great idea really!!

As long as the photographers are organised and respectful then I don't mind. Have done it a few times with various duos of photographers, which I've really enjoyed. Seems to work best when the photographers are good friends and know how each other work.

I think more than two and it becomes a group shoot, doesn't it really? And those are a bit of a handful sometimes! Not really my problem, but a lot of the folk at group shoots seem to argue/have strops about 'their turn' or the lighting being changed, and this doesn't make it a very nice atmosphere as I like everyone to be cheery on my shoots!

I think also, when you are shooting with someone else, you have to resign yourself to the fact it is no longer solely your shoot, and also you will get less photos (unless you do favour the 'press pack' method of just madly aiming and clicking!). I've had a few problems with these types of shoots running over, as everyone is trying to get 'one last shot'.

Majority of shoots I have done recently have been shared between two or three photographers. Works the same as a Camera Club or a Studio Evening in my eyes. I guess the only downfall I see is that you get several photographers with similar images!

Thanks guys - some positive feedback there. I think I'll try such a shoot before the summer's out.
