Shooting with me ~ Melody Jasmine

Here's a little run down on some information on what you can expect when booking me to create a shoot for you.


Gardens of lush greenery, Autumn hues sitting upon the morning dew.
Sunlight shining through tickling your skin into goosebumps..

I am always eternally inspired by nature, there is something so romantic & enticing about winter moments in a beautiful garden.
What a beautiful time of year this is in Byron Bay. 

These images are all entirely produced shot & styled by me and I am looking forward to creating more imagery like this, even if a little more sun soaked for the summer campaigns. 

Find out more about shooting with me

The below is a guide to how it works booking me to create a shoot for you either from afar or if you'd like to put a lot of the creative direction in my hands.

The way that i most often work is that brands chat with me & we gather the ideas on what they need and expect from this shoot and we negotiate styling & location. Often i am then trusted to create the shoot solo, and most often the label is not present at the shoot on the day. I occasionally work solo (simply with an assistant) most often without a team, but I am also happy to work within a team of stylists, HMUA ect.. 

I often shoot in my local area of Byron Bay but am also occasionally happy to travel interstate/OS upon negotiation. I do have some incredible location ideas interstate!



I can shoot entirely on film, if this is something you admire and we feel is suited to the job. All of the images shown on my website are shot on film.

It is very different to digital, i encourage you to browse my website thoroughly & have a common understanding about the difference of shooting film and digital. 

My films will be delivered to you in high resolution suitable for any web use & printing up to a4. If you require them in an even higher res (suited to print A3+) this is also possible. 


I can also shoot on digital & deliver you beautiful edited imagery.

I am happy to cast the model, scout a location, source & loan props, style the shoot on the day, even do a simple & natural HMUA look (as i have done throughout all the images on my website) Regardless of which of these things you would like me to cover, my rate stays the same.

If you or a team member would like to come along to the shoot, you are most welcome to involve yourself as much as you like. 



~ My base rate is $1100 AUD ~ This is for a campaign/lookbook style shoot. 

~ I will shoot up to 10 outfits & i will shoot for a maximum time of 4 hours for this rate

~ If we go over, after the 4 hours, the rate is + $200ph. 

~ You will receive 100+ images all ready to use as you please. 

~ I require a deposit to book in a shoot. The balance is to be paid upon receiving the images. 


All stock will be returned to you via postage (to be at your expense) or on the day of the shoot. 

I will post on my social media & website, as many images that i love, i will of course tag you in any imagery posted!
