THANK YOU... for your interest in becoming a High School Senior Model for Eve Taverne Photography!!!

Eve's Senior Model Program is quickly becoming one of the most sought after model programs in our area. Many of her models have gone on and pursued modeling further with agencies and boutiques around the country. Becoming a part of this program is like being a part of a family as you will work together closely with her over the next year or so!  AND many of her models have walked away from this program with much more confidence and strength in who they are, and has prepared them with excitement for their own senior session the following summer.  It is Eve's desire to bring out the best in you!

SO WHAT'S IT ALL ABOUT?

Eve's Senior Model Program runs throughout your junior year to the summer following. She offers many shoot options during this time. From studio, location, themed and group shoots as well. When signing with Eve you are only obligated to do one shoot, but you have the option of participating in multiple shoots and themes throughout your term.

All models will receive a 1-2 hour complimentary Senior Model Session with 3 of your favorite outfits at the studio at 95 Cold Brook St. in Poland, NY and will be completed no later than February 15, 2018.  This session does not replace the normal summer session.  The purpose of the Senior Model Session is to create stunning images used to design your personalized model cards that you will be handing out to friends at school.  The session will include in-studio with the option of bringing multiple outfits.

You’re not required to purchase any images from the model session but the opportunity will definitely be available to you.  You will receive social media images plus model cards featuring your AWESOME images that you will use to show off and promote the studio.  Remember you’re not restricted to just your school, you are encouraged to reach out to friends at other local schools as well.

The senior models chosen will also be featured on Facebook, Instagram, Snapchat and Twitter and also on the studio website, blog and printed marketing materials. The models chosen may also be entered into online image contests.  Since Eve may be submitting your photos to nationally recognized Instagram accounts, senior photography blogs and other photography websites and contests, it is VERY IMPORTANT to choose your wardrobe, hairstyle and makeup very carefully and bring appropriate accessories as well.  A great suggestion is to bring a formal outfit, semi-formal and casual to bring variety to the session.  Great examples are prom dresses, semi-formal dresses, jeans and sweaters along with accessories like scarves, long necklaces, favorite boots, high heels...you get the picture!  For the guys, a suit coat, tie, jeans, leather coat, t-shirt and your favorite kicks!

Promoting Eve Taverne Photography is one of the the main objectives of a Senior Model.  You will receive referral credits for each HS Senior you refer to the studio.  Encourage your friends to choose Eve by showing your images from your modeling session, telling them about the studio and encouraging them to choose Eve Taverne Photography for their senior portraits. You will receive $20 towards the purchase of your summer session OR prints for EACH referral that you send to Eve Taverne Photography from the school you attend.  For high school seniors that attend another school that you refer you will receive $25 for each referral.  Just remember their package MUST be paid in full for you to receive their credit. For this reason it is important for you to encourage them to make their appointment in a timely manner.

WHAT'S IN IT FOR ME?
For starters, you will receive the most incredible senior portraits ever! Eve is one of the top senior portrait artists in the area and is super easy to work with and fun to be around. Upon selection, senior models will receive:

-Complimentary model mini-session by February 2018.
-Personalized model cards from the mini-session or other sessions.
-$20 towards session or package for every referral.
-Social media images to share

WHAT DO I HAVE TO DO?

HOW WILL I GET CREDIT FOR REFERRALS?
To receive credit for a referral, your model card that you handed out must be presented or mentioned when the HS Senior books their session. They need to have their order paid in full to receive the credit.  The senior MUST hand in your card for you to receive the credit for their session, since there may be other models handing out cards at your school as well.
You are eligible for referral credits until the yearbook deadline date for your school.

WHAT IS THE INCENTIVE FOR THE SENIORS I REFER?
Your model card entitles the bearer to a 15% discount off any session. This may help sway them in their decision and it ensures that you get credit for the referral.

HOW MUCH DOES IT COST TO BE A SENIOR MODEL?
At this time there are no fees involved in being a Senior Model. ALL of the sessions are complimentary. When becoming a Senior Model for Eve, you become a senior portrait client just like everyone else, but with many more perks! Upon signing the contract a non-refundable retainer fee of $100 will guarantee your position on the team. This fee will be used towards your session fee the following summer for your senior portrait session. A minimum Basic Senior Portrait order of $599 is also required, which can be paid for in increments up to your summer session for your convenience.  A $200 retainer is required for Conceptual Senior Models. These senior models will also have the chance to take part in a Conceptual Portrait Session.  Eve and the Senior Model will choose a theme or concept.  An example of this is my theme/concept with past senior models, such as 'Snow Queen' and Ravenna 'Evil Queen'. These examples are on my website and social media accounts. You will be required to purchase the top senior model package when committing to this level of Eve's Senior Model Team. Once you are chosen as a senior model all the information regarding the two levels will be available to you to make your decision.

You will also be required to have your hair and makeup done professionally, especially for our themed shoots. If you think you can do your own hair and makeup you will be asked to provide pictures. Camera ready makeup differs from everyday makeup in its application.  Remember to share this with your makeup artist.
