Jo’s Big Debut

Jo’s Big Debut

In nearly 10 years in fitness photography Arsenik Studios has produced numerous fitness magazine covers, and thousands of published images in a variety of publications. From workout spreads, to supplement ads our goal has always been quality and that will never change. I have always said that all those images are a team effort, from the models coming in great shape, to good spray tans and makeup and hair, to spot-on lighting on set as well as photo editing to polish the process off. As with most growing companies, there…

It works, it gives you a few options, but in the end you are given an option between A, B or C packages. Pretty boring right?

Well, we’ve decided to flip it upside down and give YOU all the power…

Brand Builder Seminar

Share it – Image Posting Guidelines for Models

Share it – Image Posting Guidelines for Models

  One of the questions that we often get asked about is image licensing and online-posting practices. Since the questions are usually very similar in nature these few pointers and tips should be a helpful guideline to those who are unsure what is acceptable and what is frowned upon. It depends on the photographer, but in most cases you will walk away with your images on a USB/CD right after the shoot or they will be sent to you via a digital transfer (website/dropbox/etc.). Those images are proofs from your…
