Since it is High School Senior week at Kimberly Jarman Photography, because of the launch of our new High School Senior Site : www.kimberlyjarmanseniors.com, I thought I would share a little bit about the model shoot that we recently did.
We LOVE high school seniors and I really want to do more of senior photography, but it’s really hard to let high school seniors know that they don’t have to necessarily use the photographer that the school makes them go to for the yearbook as their senior photographer. They have options. Yes, most schools do require that they have to go get that one picture done, but you aren’t required to buy anything. Since most people don’t know about this, we have to somehow get the word out there! Thus comes our Casting Call Model Program.
What is the Casting Call?
We get a lot of questions on what the casting call is. Basically it’s geared toward high school juniors. We ask juniors to come to us towards the end of their junior year. We enter them into our model program and they get a ton of discounts for their senior pictures and free stuff. We take pictures of them during the summer before their junior year and then again the spring of their senior year. The catch is that they have to promote us throughout their senior year to all of their friends. The more friends that have us do their senior pictures, the more free things they get!! It’s a win win for everyone involved!
Group Model Shoot
Part of the casting call model program is the combined model shoot. This usually takes place the summer before our models senior year and is the first session they will do with us. It’s here that we take pictures of them individually, which are the pictures they will show their friends to get them to also have us take their senior pictures, and also how we get our marketing materials for our website and promotional items. We go somewhere fun and have a blast taking individual pictures as well as group pictures. It’s a total experience and will give our models a good idea of what it is like to have their pictures done with us.
Below are some of our pictures from our last group model shoot. We did these around the studio and had hair & makeup there for all the models, plus afterwards we ate pizza and looked at the pictures. It was a ton of fun.
These guys did such an amazing job and had a blast doing it. Ask any one of them and they will tell you that it was a great experience and they would do it again in a heart beat! They looked amazing too and rocked the camera!
