Popular Questions And Answers



I'm nervous is that okay?

Yes! To be honest I get nervous meeting new people too. Sometimes I talk too much when I get really nervous, I hope that's okay. I promise once I get comfortable it gets better.

This is the main reason I have such a strict screening process. I screen for compatible personalities as well as for my personal safety. I will do my best to make us both as comfortable as possible.

 

How much time should I book?

I suggest the first meeting be two to three hours long so we can get to know each other. I'm looking to meet people I will continue to see for years, people who become good friends so I feel like this is a good investment for both of us. It usually takes me a few hours to get really comfortable with a new person, sometimes shorter and sometimes longer but two or three hours seems to work well for me.

If you are really nervous I suggest booking as much time as possible so we can have time to sit and talk over a meal or some drinks... or both!

If you haven't guessed I'm not in a hurry. I'm a super chill, down to earth type and like to take my time and enjoy myself. You know, long walks on the beach and all that, lol, you get what I mean.

 

Should I become a site member?

If you want to. Its free.

Members can view pages that are not available to visitors, like the Members Only Photo Gallery.

Members can sign up for email updates about site upgrades, discounts, specials, contest (yes, I run contest), new photos or video, etc..

Not excited about getting emails? That's okay, I don't send them out very often, usually once a month. Also, you can opt out at any time.

 

What exactly am I paying for?

Good question! Glad you asked it. ;)

I think it's safe to say everyone's experience and expectations are different so lets cut to the chase, you are paying for my time. That is all. Before you get too disappointed that doesn't mean we won't have a great time. The money I receive is compensation for reserving a specific time to be with you be that for a dinner date, photo shoot, hitting a casino or just hanging out an talking.

I do not offer any specific acts or services in exchange for monetary compensation, goods or services. Why? Because it's illegal. So please don't ask/solicit or negotiate for something I can't offer, plus it's just bad form and I will not respond to you.

Really.

 

Can I make request?

Yup, you sure can.

I appreciate hearing candid expressions of your interest and expectations, within reason. (see "What exactly am I paying for") I usually suggest saving specifics for the second meeting, things go much smoother once we've had a chance to get to know each other. Plus in person we can speak more freely and comfortably.

If you have a request for clothing or other attire I will do my best to accommodate you but in some cases you may have to provide the outfit yourself. For example, I don't own a banana costume and if that's your thing we can get together and work out how you can either get one in my size or compensate me for purchasing one for you to enjoy.

Some clients like to request specific places to meet. I have a budget based on the amount of money I expect to make for that day/trip and if your request works into my budget I'm happy to make that happen. However, if it's out of my budget I will tell you and we discuss options. Usually clients will pay the difference, book a longer appointment to cover my cost or get the place themselves. For outside photo shoots please contact me directly.

 

How do I get started?

All new clients must fill out my online screening form, no acceptations. Some people think because I've met them in person at events or because I've talked with them on social media I won't require this, but I do. Just because we got along as friends doesn't mean we will work in a intimate setting. Plus, this is for my safety and peace of mind.

I will review your screening form and check your references or employment information fully. If you seem like someone I'd enjoy spending time with we can move to the next stage.

When you pass the screening I will give you an alphanumeric code. This is for everyone's privacy and security. Any information I need to save so we can communicate will be encrypted an accessible to me by that code, your Client Code.

Once you get your Client Code you can book an appointment. You can always use your Client Code instead of your name.

If you later need me to give you a reference, you will need that code. Make sure to give the provider who is contacting me the code, without it I will not give you a reference.

 

How do I book an appointment?

I have a form on my website for booking appointments. This is the best way to reach me.

I don't book appointments over the phone or text. You can always email an appointment request but if you do please include all the information on the booking form.

 

What if I forget my Client Code?

Just send me a request via the Contact Page or by email.

I'll need the email associated with your account as well as your full name and phone number.

 

Do you offer incalls and outcalls?

Yes, both.

 

Do you book same day appointments?

Not with new clients. I will see regular/VIP clients on short notice.

 

Can I request a day listed as "Not Available"?

Sure. You can always ask but I probably have it listed as "Not Available" because I'm actually not available. Sometimes my plans are easily moved and I can accommodate a request for a date listed as "Not Available" but I wouldn't get my hopes up.

 

Can I book a partial hour appointment?

Nope, sorry. I do not offer partial hours.

 

What happens if I need to cancel?

If you cancel more then 48 hours before the appointment date there is no problem and any prepaid fees will be returned.

If you cancel between 48 hours and 24 hours before the appointment date there will be a 50% fee. If you didn't prepay that 50% will be added to your next appointment and must be prepaid. Again, this is to help cover expenses that I have already incurred. I only see one client per day so all my expenses like the hotel, travel cost, food, etc. are riding on that appointment. I hate doing this so I will credit you 50% of the missed time on your next prepaid appointment.

If you cancel less than 24 hours before the appointment you forfeit the entire amount but again, I will credit you 50% of the missed time on your next prepaid appointment.

Regular/VIP clients get some leeway here.

 

Why do new clients need to prepay?

For all the reasons you think. It helps me avoid flakes, pranks, robbers, weirdos and jerks.

I understand that it takes a lot of trust to prepay for an appointment with someone who is basically a stranger but to be fair it's not much easier on my end of things. I do everything I can to make it as easy and stress-free as I can. I've been doing this for a while and my reputation is literally all I have to justify my work so I would never do anything to tarnish that.

 

Are your prices negotiable?

I always say that everything in life is negotiable and you never know unless you try. That said, I do not negotiate with new clients. I feel like I'd like to know someone well before I get into something complicated.

I have in the past been open to negotiating with a few regular/VIP clients for trades but I will only do so if I think the offer is fair.

If you are an established photographer and want to do a marketing trade please email me the details.

 

What forms of payment do you take?

This can be discussed after you pass my screening.

 

What if I'm late, need to leave early or cancel?

Because you are paying for me to set aside time for you, that starts at the agreed upon time set during scheduling. Just like any other business you would pay to have access for a specific period of time.

If you are just
