High School Model Program – Senior Portrait Photographer

Attention Class of 2012 and 2013! Looking for a fun and fashionable way to earn money, portrait credit, or gift cards to your favorite stores? Charlene Chavez Photography’s High School Model Program provides you with all those things and more.

The Senior Modeling Program allows us to use your images in various marketing campaigns at Charlene Chavez Photography. Your images will be used in displays, website articles, and product samples, as well as online social marketing such as Facebook and Twitter.

Incentives for the Modeling Program are achieved by means of referral. For the first photo session completed by a referred friend, you will receive a free 30-minute session. The second and following referrals you will get a $25 gift card (or cash) to your favorite store. After three referrals, you will receive a free “BFF session” with a group of your closest 3 friends. After ten referrals, you are eligible to win one of two grand prizes: 1) a two day trip to the SPA 2012 Convention, location to be announced, to relax and model for the nation’s top high school photographers or 2) a two day senior destination trip, location to be announced. The winners of the SPA 2012 grand prize will walk the catwalk for AIG Model Management reps and compete alongside other top models from all over the U.S. for a modeling contract with AIG Model Management.

Below are a few images created at SPA 2011 in Palm Springs.

Here are a couple of videos created by SPA Member & Photographer Nick Sharples created at the SPA 2011 event in Palm Springs.
