FAQ Photographers

General

We are an online community-platform that connects models and photographers all around the world.

We are not a model agency - we connect models with photographers, which makes us completely objective when presenting models.

If you are a photographer, Shootset is perfect place for you to find models because you can choose people who are not a professional models, which means that they are probably not photographed by industry competitors. Further on, Shootset models are not as pricey as a professional models.

There are 3 simple steps to use Shootset:

  • 1. Create your free profile. Fill your profile and find the perfect match for your next shoot.
  • 2. Find and compare models, set shooting details, and use our system to discuss specifics with models.
  • 3. Book online and keep all your shooting details in one place

Bookings

First, you create shooting. Then find models you want to book and add them to that specific shooting.
Next, you have to send them a booking requests. When sending booking request you will be asked to propose the price to the model for the shoot you are planning. Other than that, you will be asked to include all shooting details, such as: shooting date and time, the estimated duration of the shooting and location.

After adding a model to the shooting, you have to send him/her a booking request. Just click the “send booking request” button, specify all the details (shooting date and time, the estimated duration of the shooting, location and proposed price) and submit request.
Model then has 24h to respond to booking request. Model has options to accept, decline or request more money.

No. Model can only see the price you have offered to him. Also, model can not see other models in the shoot, nor the messages you have exchanged with them.

After sending a booking request, model has 24h to respond. If he/she fails to respond in period of 24h, the booking request will be canceled automatically.

If the booking request was declined automatically, that means that the model has failed to respond within the period of 24h after you have sent the booking request. You can now send another booking request to the same model, or find another model, add him/her to the shooting and send another booking request.

That means that the model has declined the booking request and added the reason for declining. You can now send another booking request to the same model, or find another model, add him/her to shooting and send another booking request.

Congrats! Model has accepted the terms of your booking request. If you have sent more booking requests to other models, you should wait for them to respond, or you can find another model, add him/her to shooting and send another booking request.
Also, if you have enough models for your shoot, you can confirm your shoot right away, otherwise it will confirmed automatically 24h before the date and time the shooting is scheduled.

This means that model usually works for more money than what you have offered. Model has proposed the new price, you can now Accept or Decline the new offer.
If you do not respond within 24h, that model’s booking request will be automatically declined.

If you have accepted the higher price, that means that the booking request is now confirmed.
