Pricing depends on the complexity of the shooting and the length of time it takes to finish.
- Simple [1 scene, no costume change, 5-10 pictures] - about $80
- Average [1-2 scenes, 0-1 costumes changes, 15-30 pictures] - about $120
- Complex [2-3 scenes, 0-2 costume changes, 30+ pictures] - about $180
Payment is accepted via PayPal. If you cannot use PayPal, Amazon gift codes may also be accepted on an individual basis.
[WHAT IS THE GENERAL PROCESS?]
- You send me a note with your general idea. It can be rough or detailed, usually it is not hard to fill in the gaps.
- After we reach an agreement on the details of the commission I’ll negotiate the terms of the shooting with a model that is interested in it.
Up to this point it is all theory and you can back out of the commission without problems.
- Now we set the machine in motion. I’ll send you a cost report so you’ll have an idea about how the commission price comes together.
You pay the commission in full. I order additional props (if needed) and schedule the shooting with the model and the studio.
- After the shooting I edit the pictures and deliver them to you via Dropbox link.
- Commissions have to fit the general theme of the Project. I reserve the right to deny any commission requests without discussion.
- As this is an uncommon fetish the pool of models willing to take part in this kind of fantasy is limited. I won't relay any requests to the models that may strain a healthy working relationship.
- All commissions are non-exclusive and for your personal use only. If you need exclusive rights or if you want to republish or resell the commission we need to agree on a commercial license.
- Commissions have to be paid in advance. Planning a shooting creates fixed costs. If for whatever reasons there are problems with the payment I'll not only loose my time invested in the commission, I’ll also be stuck with model fee, studio rent, props, etc.- I need to ask for your trust, especially if this is your first commission with me.
Looks like I didn't write an update for my DA profile in months. These days I'm more active on our Discord server, Instagram or the Patreon page. Speaking of, I've recently changed releases to a format I call photo story. It's basically a digital PDF photo book with the story integrated into the picture as text. I do the layout of those with a tool called Affinity Publisher. It is pretty close to Adobe InDesign. There is also a more traditional media gallery with all the images used in the photo story and some more bonus pictures that I ended up not using. So far I have released three of those photo stories. "What happens in Core 4, stays at Core 4", a trial run combining two stories from 2019. "The First Birthday" and "Into The Conduit", the regular releases for April with new material. This was a super-important step for me after Dropbox shut down their Showcase feature at the end of last year. I also have some ideas about doing new interpretations of old photos in that
Happy Project Holidays
Not that it's getting weird being alone for the holidays for the first time in 40 years or something. To fight the Christmas blues I will video-call some family members later and prepare a special Christmas pizza for dinner. Nice home-made yeast dough, hollandaise sauce, red cabbage, pears and cheddar. Already looking forward to that. So happy Christmas, Hanukkah, Kwanzaa or just some nice non-religious days off for all of you. No matter if you spend the time together with friends and family or alone for whatever reason.
What do you want the Project to be in 2021?
It's the end of the year again and what a year it was! Usually this is the time when I muse why so many patrons left recently and what it means for the direction of the Project. This year is different - my dashboard says that support is stable. This makes me happy. If you ask me to summarize this year in one word it is "draining". Although there were (and are) long stretches of (so-called) lockdown, I can count the days I worked from home on one hand. Work is still piling up at my day job and I'm counting the days until my vacation starts (it's five days by the way). It will be a very lonely turn of the year in my little self-imposed quarantine, but it's better than risking making what is left of my family sick. I recently started streaming some nostalgic horror games on Twitch to reconnect to old friends. Originally I set up this whole streaming thing for the Project, but it's super-hard to find a time slot that works across time zones. I'm pretty content with the creative output of
YouTube suspension, video downloads unaffected
YouTube has notified me that they have suspended the Intravenus Project channel because of violations of the Community Guidelines. On hindsight I should have been more cautious on that platform. I will try to appeal this decision of course but I don't think we will get the channel back. I've already moved some stuff to Vimeo and see where we go from there.
