We shoot all of our Express gigs in the smallest RAW format that your camera supports. We do this in order to ensure that we can adjust the exposure and white balance where necessary without degrading the quality of your image. Please do not shoot in JPG. 




Within 5 hours after your gig please transfer all RAW files to us for editing. Please keep a copy of the files for a minimum of 72 hours to ensure that the files were transferred successfully.                                                                                                      

How to Transfer Photos

1) Login to your nexus dashboard. Navigate to your Gig Overview for the gig you just worked. You should find a link to your Gig Overview in the Past Gigs table. 

Click the “Upload Photos” button next at the top of the Gig Overview which will scroll you down to the bottom of the page. C

2) Your file uploader for this gig will load with all info already entered for you.

3) Select all of the photos you shot, add any notes for the editors and then click the “Start Upload” button.

NOTE: Please start your upload within five hours after your gig ends. If you are unable to upload within this time frame, please contact Gig Support with the estimated delivery timeline so we can plan accordingly. 

Failure to send the photos within a timely manner on a consistent basis may impact whether you are hired for future gigs.


For gigs that don’t have a specific dress code or uniform, photographers are to wear professional clothing to Pretty Instant shoots. Our brand colors are black, white, grey, and pink, so try and keep it in that range. We try to maintain a metropolitan, Virgin Airlines-brand-style approach to fashion, so keep it classy, clean, and fun!
