To apply to be a 2011 Mandi McDougall Photography Senior Spokesmodel please fill out the form here.
What is a senior spokesmodel?
Basically, you are my presence at your school. You are charged with helping market my studio to your peers and getting them to book me for their senior pictures!
What am I looking for in a senior model?
I want kids who are fun, outgoing, involved, adventurous, creative….you need to be up for anything! I want kids willing to try out new poses, new locations, and bring their individual style and flair to a photo shoot! I want kids willing to be supermodels for a day and have fun! I need kids who are willing to go out of their way to promote my business and be excited about their pictures!
What do you get out of it?
Well…..sort of. You have to earn the rewards as payment for a job well done. Basically, the more kids that book with me the more you get.
How does it work?
You need to apply to be a senior spokesmodel. Once you are chosen we will get together in April for your session. That session is all about you and what you want to accomplish with your portraits. Creativity is a must! At this time you will be responsible for a $100 session fee which is earned back with two referrals and will be applied to your print order. Why a fee? Well, history has taught me that kids need a little incentive to get out there and get the referrals. And, well, if you don’t I still need to be compensated for my time. Being a senior model is much like a job. You do your job, I pay you.
After your session we will work together to choose the best to put in your 5×7 brag book. Then, you get your brag book and a set of gift cards to hand out to your peers. You need to show them the pictures in your book and convince them to book me.
You will be asked to sign a contract to not represent another studio during your time as a senior spokesmodel. You will also be expected to not seek additional senior portraits at another studio.
I also expect you to keep up with any promotions I am running and inform your peers any way you can to take advantage of them.
I also use your images on my marketing materials, facebook, and website.
In the fall of 2010 or spring 2011 we will schedule your follow-up mini session. When you’re ready to order, you will come into the studio to see the proofs of your sessions and place your order. I’ll tally up the referrals and you can choose your prints or other products at that time.
That’s it! Easy peasy, right?
So, how about those freebies?
Well…..each referral earns you $100 print credit. Remember, at 2 referrals you earn your session fee back!
