 Q: What is an Exclusive/Custom Shoot?

A: An Exclusive Shoot is something you request us to do, with your own directions, and choice of models. (which we will provide and you pick)


Q: How do I buy an Exclusive Shoot and how much does it cost?

A: Our Exclusive Shoots start at $295 and up, depending on your preferences. If you time your exclusive shoot with our Major Shoots (we announce when our major shoots are), and use the models attending the major shoot (list provided), then the cost will only be:

  • $295.00 for one model in a single pose (Rates may vary depending on current model rates)
  • $350 and up for two models in a single pose (Rates may vary depending on current model rates)
  • If you want 3 models in a single pose, base rate is $450. If you need more than 3 models, additional models are $200 each on top of the base rate. 
  • To inquire, please email us at: PeriodImages@outlook.com or use our contact form on the website. Please note: Exclusive/custom shoots are non-refundable. 


Q: What does an Exclusive License allow? 

A: Buying an Exclusive License means you'll have a one-of-a-kind image in your book cover. It also allows you to print an UNLIMITED number of books (paperback and hardcover), including promotional materials. Please note, an exclusive license is not the same as copyright. Period Images still owns the copyright for the images. You are not allowed to share the image with your friends to use. However, if you are an author and you have a publisher, you can either have your publisher buy the exclusive license, or have your publisher get an "Extended Use License" (If you, the author, already bought the Exclusive License). An "Extended Use License" allows your publisher to use your Exclusive Image for your books printed under their label. The cost for an "Extended Use License" is $75.00 (After the Exclusive License cost)    


Q: What do I need to provide when ordering an Exclusive/Custom shoot?
