Are you interested in documenting your teenage years and getting a lot of fun images! Pictures are not just for Seniors, babies, or Weddings! It seems like the pre-teen and teen years somehow get overlooked the most. Hopefully, I can put an end to this :-) This market is quickly evolving and I hope you will consider helping me get it started!
1. So, what exactly is a Teen Model?
A teen model on my team isn't someone who aspires to be a model. It is someone who is fun, outgoing and just loves to experience different locations and get a variety of images. I feel like the more we work together the more relaxed you will be in front of my camera. You can also bring ideas to me, I am always up for creative sessions. You also get access to my dates before anyone else. So those prime Saturday slots will be yours first.
2. What are the requirements?
It's pretty simple. Book a 1 hour session (with digitals) with me for a Introductory year price of $250 (a $100 savings over my regular fee of $350). My fall weekends are booked up, however I have a lot of weekdays open and you could wait to book your 1 hour session in the Spring and get access to my calendar first.
3. Will it be a problem if I can't make all the sessions you offer?
Absolutely not, just come to what interests you. I had one daughter who was super active in dance, and a son that plays travel soccer. I know that if you are active in church, school, or other activities your time is more limited.
4. So, what will I get for being a Model for Melissa Holleman Photography?
You will get to participate in more than just your one hour scheduled session for the year.
For each themed session that you attend you will receive at least 5 Digital images you can share and print from. Typically you get way more than 5 images!!
5. What/Where will the other sessions be?
Oct- 20 minute session in a field, either at Joyner Park or the Art Museum in Raleigh.
Jan/Feb- 20 minute session in a inside studio setting. You can use this time for headshots, or I can figure out a theme.
April- Group session at the American Tobacco District in Durham. I will block off 2 hours that day just for the teen group.
Your passion session- 30-45 minutes to do a session for whatever you are passionate about. We can tailor it around sports, dance, musical instruments, video games, etc. If you don't have something, we will think up something to make it different than your regular 1 hour session. It can be themed. This can take place anywhere from when we book to May 2021.
End of the year Silhouette image! I will put your grade or age on your image to finish out our year together.
Share ideas with me as well! I will send an email to you to sign up so that I know who is coming. Just make sure on the form to let me know if you can make it or not.
6. Are there any additional costs to being a Teen Model?
After you pay for your 1 hour session, generally speaking the answer is no. Your time is the main thing you will be using here. Gas getting to the locations is all that I can think of that you would need to worry about. If anyone ever needs a ride, you are also welcome to ride in with myself and Autumn (my daughter and lovely assistant).
