Senior Spoke Model Program Essentials! Part I :: Feature Friday :: Teran Elaine Photography
Senior Spokes Model/Rep Programs are very popular and allow you to burst into multiple school districts in the same year. Now is the time to start setting up your Senior Spokes Model Programs. (I always refer to my models as spokes models. The thought of being a spokes model sounds like so much fun!)
Create an application! Once your perks are in place, you must figure out a way for your seniors to apply. In your application be sure to ask questions about activities, clubs and organizations the senior is involved with. The more activities, the more connections! Many times with the application, seniors are required to send in a headshot with their application. While optional, it’s a good idea – this will allow you to place a face with the name.
Choose and Meet! Once you have chosen your models, have a meeting at your local bakery or coffee shop to discuss your contract (yep you’ll need one of those too), perks and incentives! Be sure to meet with both your model AND his or her parents. At this time you may also want to set up a date to photograph the senior during a mini session. This will allow you to get a few headshots to create their spokes model cards.
Good luck organizing your own spokes model program!
