Classical Photography continues to be the leader in senior portraits in West Georgia and East Alabama. We started photographing high school seniors beginning with the Class of 1996! We were also the first studio in the area to introduce "The Model Program", way back with the Class of 1998. Now, it's truly hard for us to believe that we're working on the Class of 2018, but we believe that this year's crew will, hands down, be the best ever!
We pull in seniors every year from more than 20 high schools and our goal is to have at least one SpokesModel from each of these schools. We'll often pick more than one from the larger schools in our market. Last year we had over 50 on our Class of 2017 team. These students represented the best and brightest upcoming graduates of West Georgia and East Alabama.
So, what is a SpokesModel and what Great things do you get to do when you're selected?
A Classical SpokesModel is a student who will be graduating with the Class of 2018. We seek out those of you who are active and involved in both school and or community. It doesn't mean your family is the richest in town, nor does it mean that you're the best looking guy or girl at your school...it means that you're a hard worker and your fellow classmates and teachers, like and respect you. That's what's most important to Classical. We want kind, considerate, well rounded students to represent our studio for the Class of 2018. Our program is not a popularity contest, it's a fun way for you to shine and have an amazing time during this, your final, exciting year of high school.
SpokesModels are representatives of our studio who are photographed early to show off our current image options to their friends and classmates. We always want to showcase our newest looks and styles to the rising seniors and we find that our SpokesModel team is the best way to do this. Most seniors have their portraits created in the summer before their senior year, and we want the Class of 2018 to see a good mix of images prior to getting out for the summer. SpokesModel sessions begin in the spring and continue into the summer. You don't just get one visit that lasts 30 minutes or an hour, you get to be photographed multiple times, in a variety of different ways, to showcase not only your unique personality, but also our unique studio style.
SpokesModels will be the face of Classical Photography for the Class of 2018. You start off with a mini, in-studio fashion headshot session, not long after joining the program. This will be utilized to introduce you as a SpokesModel to your classmates and the community. Once we reach May, we'll schedule you for one of our most unique options, our "Let it Rain" session. Last year's models were our first group to experience this and we're looking forward to creating some new variations on this theme for the Class of 2018. Then, we'll schedule you for a full two hour session here at our studio. We'll make use of tons of the great options that make the sample images you see throughout our site look so amazing. SpokesModels also have the option of adding in an on-location destination to their experience to truly make their session one of a kind.
It goes without saying, that these images we create of you will be your senior portraits. They will represent the coolest combinations of what we and you collaborate on over a period of months. No where else can you experience such a interesting mix of photography.
