I have a model that I have shot many times. She can snap a selfie in my changing room mirror and have it on Facebook before I have taken a single picture of her. (You know who you are Penny). It isn't a problem.
I don't mind; a cheerful selfie that shows shoots with me are relaxed and fun sometimes makes other hobbyist models want to work with me. I've had several folk say to me that I look like a laugh to get on with, and they'd like to collab with me. I have an outtakes folder on facebook of funny moments and selfies with models, people love seeing 'behind the scenes' stuff even when you're just a hobbyist like me.
Of course, wanting to take a silly snap every two minutes would be annoying, but so long as the shoot isn't being majorly interrupted by it then I'm fine with it. Most people I shoot with just snap the odd few in between sets, or at the end of the shoot.
Do you approve and let models take selfies before or after your photo shoot? It would be good to get people's opinion on this subject, so fire away.....
As long as it does not require a lot of effort on my part, or spend time I have paid for it's OK. I also don't want the selfies to appear to be "from the shoot". The typical "Behind the scenes" look is great. And I am always happy to be mentioned in the posts.
I get lots of models / MUA / Stylists etc. who want a quick snap of themselves or the team to put on there own social media sites etc. Which I've no problems with unless -
The client has non disclosure agreements for their products, collection or whatever. Then of course its a total no.
Its also an unwritten rule that no one posts any bad photos showing people / products / dresses or whatever in an unfavourable light, poor quality photo, stupid over editing or whatever. It goes without saying, everyone know the rules.
You break them, and you'll not be working in that team again or getting any recommendations.
The only people who ever seem to break these rules and the only ones I'm ever cautious of is the newbie junior photographer there doing behind the scenes. They rarely have a perception of what is a good photo.
They are just a bit of fun. I originally planned to take a selfie with everyone I've worked with but I have so much fun and caught up in the shoot I forget. I have a chance to with many of photographers I work with because we keep coming up with new shoots to do... however there's one who I worked with this year and sadly he died a couple of weeks ago and I just wished I had a selfie with him. To remember him by
Yes, sure. Why not?
nice image, but thats actually not a selfie. Thats a photo of someone making a selfie. Selfies are image made by the model (self) or with mirror, but not someone else making the photo ...
