It’s best to allow a full 9 hours for a shoot (from when you meet with the Shoot Producer until you leave), just to be safe, but it’s unlikely to take the full 9 hours.
If you have to be somewhere at a certain time on the shoot day, please let the Shoot Producer know when you discuss the date and start time with them.
We want you to look your best, and that might not happen if we have to rush. We can always re-schedule you for a more suitable day.
“We made it a bit longer because we had a lot of ideas and we wanted the best shots possible. We wanted to make sure it was actually cool and a good first shoot and a good first impression for me. We agreed that that’s important” (Dalilah, Nov 2021).
