Photographic Model Training

 

The majority of Modeling Schools normally provides training in all the different aspects of Modeling, but concentrates mostly on Ramp Modeling.

Although Photographic Modeling normally forms part of the training course, the exposure is most of the time limited, due to time and cost constrains. Studio photo shoots are time consuming and expensive and is normally kept to the minimum.

To work with an inexperienced model, from a photographers point of view, is very time consuming and exhausting. In most cases the photographer needs to demonstrate every look and pose before the actual photograph can be taken.

Over the years we worked with a number of inexperienced models from the rural areas, where Modeling schools are scarce or none existent. In order to address the training void we developed a photographic modeling course catering specifically for the inexperienced talent with-out any previous training or experience.

The objective of the course is to provide the prospective model with :

  • Basic training

  • Exposure to studio conditions,

  • Rapport with the camera,

  • Dress and appearance changes,

  • Basic beauty and nutrition skills,

  • Repertoire  of popular poses

Although this course is aimed at inexperienced models, sections "B" & "C" might be useful for models with prior training in their future endeavors.

There is two versions of this course, one for Adults, and one for Children Models.
