Brie fell in love with the fashion industry. Energized by her trip to Paris, Brie began to plot where she wanted to settle down and set up shop. Brie landed in Los Angeles and began to work as a bartender and headshot photographer. Constantly shooting, she began to make more and more connections through her headshot clients until one day her makeup artist arranged a shoot with Shannon Elizabeth. It was a little fate, a little luck, and a lot of tenacity. The shoot went extremely well and as Brie puts it, “Shannon is one of the nicest people to work with.

She doesn’t sit back and wait for the work to fall in her lap. Even at her level she’s constantly marketing. But she doesn’t just market herself with her commercial images. Her promos have a little commercial work and a lot of art. I can only think that art buyers and art directors look forward to the arrival of Michele’s promo pieces. I would. 21 She also has a list of awards she’s won that’s as long as your arm, including the Black & White Spider Awards Photographer of the Year 2007. I get the sense that her vacation from shooting pictures is shooting pictures in a different way.

A bid is a list of fees and expenses with a final price at the bottom indicating what the cost to the client will be for the shoot. When you and your client agree on a final number, that number is set in stone. It is now your job to produce the agreed-upon work for that price. Personally, I love working with bids because they offer the most potential for profit beyond my fees. They also require the least amount of paper work because you don’t have to support the numbers with actual receipts. For example, if I agree to shoot a jeans ad for $15,000, and the fees I’m going to make on the job are $6,000, that leaves me $9,000 to produce the shoot.
