Model call

All applicants need to apply by Sunday 8th May 2016

1st shoot for 4 - 7 year olds takes place on 14th May, so not long!

Hello,

Sorry it's been so long since I last posted!  I've been a bit quiet on the social media front recently. For the last 9 months, in-between shoots, I've been on courses, workshops and focusing all my attention on developing my new photography brand. I've decided to go in a new direction.  It won't suit all families but to some it'll make total sense. 

I've researched, spoken to a lot of my clients, been really anti-social, done a lot of reading and just completed an ahh mazing course (details below) I now have in my hands a photography brand that makes my heart sing :) I'm getting a little emotional here as I have created a business not only based around who and what I am passionate about, but to top it all off I get to do it all with a camera in my hand! :D

 

Although I'm nearly there I can not reveal too much yet as the new website and copy is still being worked upon and most importantly (and this is where you might be able to help), in order to visually present my new brand I'm looking for some models.....


I am looking for 6 models, all girls, aged 4 through to 18 to be apart of my pre-launch BETA shoots. Working with your daughter/s in this BETA phase allows me to test and tweak my signature style before my launch near the end of the year. If your daughter is selected, I want to thank you and your daughter by giving you a free photoshoot worth £190 PLUS 5 high resolution, fully edited digital images worth £250 from the shoot. Yup, a massive thank you worth £440.


Do you know of anyone with daughters from 4 - 18 years old?

If you do please share

  • Plays guitar, wise for her years and knows what she wants to be.

Things you need to know before you apply

  • Even if you are not chosen, I am giving £50 off a session fee with me next year for all who complete the questionnaire and enter. (1 x £50 off per family)
  • I will send you an online questionnaire, each questionnaire will take between 15 - 30 minutes to complete (all questions to be answered by your daughters)
  • All shoots will take place outdoors and locations will be decided after girls have been chosen.
  • Clothing & hair you will provide/do yourself, however I will guide you on what to wear and what to do with hair.
  • All locations will be within the Surrey, Hampshire or Berkshire areas and decided my me.
  • For these pre-launch BETA shoots I cannot photograph anyone I have photographed before, sorry.
  • All parents will be expected to sign a child model release form.  A model release form is simply confirmation of consent given to a photographer by the person in the photograph or the parent/guardian if under 18, that the images may be used for various marketing purposes.
  • The 5 high resolution images from the shoot will be given to the parents after the launch.
  • The parents/guardians of the 6 chosen girls will be expected to pay a fully refundable £50.00 deposit before the shoot which will be given straight back to them the next working day after they have attended the shoot.  This just ensures commitment as an enormous amount of time goes into each session.
  • I need all applicants' questionnaires back by 12pm Sunday 8th May 2016.  Those chosen girls parents' will be informed on Wednesday 11th May (the first shoot for 4 - 7 year olds takes place on Sat 14th May - nothing like cutting it fine hey :D)
  • If your child is 18, she is more than welcome to apply herself, but I will need proof she is 18 with some ID.
  • If you are under 18 your parent or guardian MUST request the questionnaire and give you permission to apply.  This will be checked.


If you'd like your daughter to be considerd please

contact me here let me know the age of your daughter

and I'll send you a questionnaire.

psssst - a little tip - although there is a big reward for helping me out, a lot of people will be put off because of the 15 - 30 minutes it takes to fill out the questionnaire.  Most assume I will be inundated with applications and its not always the case. If it doesn't take a minute for people to enter most won't bother.  Just saying as you might be one of a few :)

 

The course I mentioned above is called That Thing you Do by Alicia Caine.  This fantastic, talented lady from Fort Worth Texas has created a course that helps creatives establish authentic, outside the box buisness'  I Highly recommend her course, not only to creatives, but any business owner!

 

Really look forward to hearing from you :)
