Most Asked Questions

Where are you based?

My studio is based in Vancouver, Canada.
If you travel by car, there is plenty of street parking available.
Once you arrive – give me a call and I will come out to receive you.

What digital platforms are you going to use my
images on?

Images taken in photographic sessions may be used by me for display or marketing purposes.
This could include social media (Instagram and Facebook studio pages), marketing literature (styling and session guides) or galleries on the website to promote my style of photography to the future viewers. By accepting the invitation for a photoshoot, you agree to those terms and
for me to use the images in the ways stated above. On the day of the shoot I will have a model release form for you to sign.

Who has the copyrights to the images?

Under the Copyright Act of 1985, I retain the copyright of all images taken. You are not allowed to copy, screen grab, scan or reproduce photographs without written consent from Gina Russi Portrait Photography. There is no third party involved.

What is this model call for?

As a professional, it is important for me to be able to offer you the best experience possible, to show you my skills as well as beautiful final products you can choose from after your photoshoot. As I grow and develop my skills as a photographer, artist and a business owner, my goal it that my samples reflect that journey. At present, I am creating new studio products and this model call is for me to produce wall art samples (framed prints and acrylics) as wellas folio boxes or heirloom albums you can keep for generations to come orgift to your dear ones.

What will the session look like?

When you come, on the day of your photoshoot, we will go through the inspirations again, the dresses we collected and decide on few best options. After styling the hair and applying the makeup, we will have up to three hours of creative time. As every person is diferent and has diferent needs, we will try to achieve three diferent looks but it can vary dependent on the flow of the shoot. We will have breaks to refresh, change outfits.

What happens after the shoot?

After I take all the beautiful portraits of you, I will then select the best images and edit them carefully in my signature fine art style. In about two to three weeks, you will be invited back for your reveal appointment. I will prepare only the very best images from the shoot and you will have a chance to view those images and select your favourites. Then I will send the images that you have chosen to be printed.
