I always get amazed as to how many people who do not want to fill out a booking outline. It just makes things easier. It takes away the back and forth. It covers everyone’s hind quartersJ. It makes a shoot more into a plan. I have never been one of those who are just like, let’s show up and shoot. Some people can. I just am not one of them.
A booking outline is basically just what the expectations are for a modeling assignment. It covers the who, what, when, and where. It also covers the images that are supposed to be given to the model, what time frame, and how many. With all of the detail covered in one, it basically is your own contract to make sure that everyone keeps up with their end of the bargain. Once you get to the assignment, everyone signs off of it so again there are no last minute changes to it. And if there are, you make them in writing. No more he said, she said. That is the last thing you want to have taking up your time is to try to figure out on what was agreed upon.
