Models (and dancers/cheerleaders interested in getting into modeling) are all welcome! Jaze Companies is excited to announce this opportunity for Dent models to get FREE photo shoots to build their portfolio and gain experience. These shoots are open to any Dent model who is able to travel to our Dayton OH studio location.
No experience? Just getting started? No worries! We'll help you look your best for your photos!
Shoots are scheduled based on your availability. This is NOT a group shoot style event. You will receive individualized, personal instruction on set with a photographer.
You'll benefit from one-on-one attention with posing basics, on-set 101 and cater your shoot based on your experience level and needs.
Copies of all the images from the shoot are included free as well.
A standard procedure with modeling photography is signing a model release. Each participant will need to have a modeling release signed by their parent or guardian in order to shoot. Please print out a copy via link below, complete the form and have it with you when you come to the shoot. We understand this experience may be new for some parents. We've included answers to many common questions below. But if you'd like to discuss any particular questions or concerns you're welcome to contact us via the information at the bottom of the page.

STEAMPUNK SESSION DETAILS
We're excited to offer this unique photoshoot opportunity to Dent Models but there are a few restrictions we want to make you aware of:
We have a few garment pieces available models may use for this session. A model's participation in this session is dependent on their ability to fit into the wardrobe we have available. We'll want to talk sizes and fit in advance. Please bring black undergarments to wear underneath.
We have a limited stock of related props that models may use for this session. Props include goggles, top hat, lace parasol and other items maybe be available.
We have a limited option of footwear available but due to variability in sizing we recommend models bring black heels or chunky boots with them for this concept that you're sure they will fit comfortably.
Models should bring bring red lipstick and some brown or black powder to create "dirt smudges" on their face.
