Preparing for a VAMPIRE Photoshoot
Vampire Photo Shoot

Explore your darkest desires...

We transform you into irresistible, terrifying vampires. You will be full of seductive charm at the start, but by the end you will be a savage fanged beast, drenched in the blood of your victims.

About this shoot

• You will be photographed as an attractive vampire who stalks the night in search of human blood. You will start the photoshoot as a creature of charm as you seduce victims to their death. As the shoot progresses we will add more blood until eventually the brutal savage vampire is revealed.

• You will be directed by the photographer into scary poses which will feature a lot of fake blood. As the shoot progresses, more blood will be added.

• This is a fascinating portrait photoshoot in which you will embark on a journey from your most attractive to your most terrifying and gory. The actual shoot is a lot of fun and not scary to do, but the resulting photos are very scary!

• Maximum x4 people.

Things you need to bring

Suitable vampire clothing. You can wear anything you like in your vampire shoot but we suggest gothic, dark, smart, dressy clothing, corsets, suit jackets, and so on. Black is fine but red, purple, even white or cream can look stunning too so give these some thought. Lighter colours also photograph better and allow blood and gore to show up more. We don't mind if you prefer jeans and hoodies to portray urban vampires. Just please be aware that you will end up getting fake blood on your clothing. We've found it does tend to wash out of most things but we make no guarantee and take no responsibility for damaged clothing.

Props: Feel free to bring any appropriate props if you have any that you would like to use (optional).

Eyes: You may bring your own eye contacts for scary eye effects if you want to (optional). We do not supply contacts.

• Please bring a towel for clean-up at the end.



We use "Scarecrow Fangs". We can provide these, however it might be a good idea if you purchase your own fangs, which you can set to fit your own teeth perfectly and of course you can take them back with you after the shoot. Scarecrow fangs are excellent and easy to purchase on the internet. However if you don't want to buy your own then we have fangs here which you can use for your shoot.

The makeup process

• Horrify Me will supply your fangs (unless you bring your own), as well as all the horror makeup and fake blood, so you will not need to bring any of this. If you have your own set of fangs that you love then please feel free to bring them.

Female vampires: Horrify Me doesn't provide beauty makeup, we only provide horror makeup. We recommend you apply your own makeup or we can book a professional makeup artist for you, for an additional fee. If you require a professional makeup artist then please let us know when you book. We suggest dark lips, strong eye makeup and lashes, dark long nails (fake nails are fine) and pale complexion.

The shoot

• You will be guided throughout the shoot and instructed how to pose.

• As the shoot progresses, more blood gets added and the process gets very messy and gory.

• All the makeup and fake blood is completely safe. The blood is sugar-based and fully edible allowing for plenty of drooling and blood drinking.

Clean up

• At the end of the shoot you can clean up. Everything is harmless but certain parts might pull on your skin like a sticking plaster, or leave small traces of skin glue behind which will need to be washed off.

• You will be able to wash in the studio. Everything comes off pretty easily and you will be able to go home in fairly clean condition, although you might need a shower when you get home.

The photos

• Horrify Me conducts very comprehensive portrait shoots to really make the most of your session.

• You will do a variety of poses, either solo or with your fellow vampires. There will be beautiful seduction, romantic shots, scary lighting effects, biting, blood drooling, and many scary set ups. The process is great fun and the photos look like real horror movie stills.

Age Limits

• 16 and over preferred because vampires can have mildly erotic overtones and seductive poses which would not be appropriate for children. However we don't mind if you want to bring children to this shoot, we will simply remove the "sensual" element and make it age-appropriate. Minimum age 8 years and over.

If you intend to bring children to this shoot then please read this page.
