It’s hard to get an agent to meet with you to look over your book so it’s imperative that your book is full of winners! Diana Carelli will review your book in detail to give you the edge and catch the agent’s eye.
If you don’t have a book we can review your Instagram account or you can just follow along to learn where to begin. We can all learn from each other.
It used to be that your “book” was all that mattered but now your Instagram account is just as important. Find out why.
We will show you how to make your profile eye-catching and help you clean up your account so that it can start booking you real jobs!
You will be provided with an agency represented model and a mood board to get your creative juices flowing. A make-up artist will be on hand to finish the look.
Together with our founders Justin, Shawna, Anna, Matthew, and Bree, you will shoot your look with two different industry-leading photographers so you get maximum experience and see how a different eye can really vary the results.
After the class you will receive one retouched image from each photographer to use in your book!
(Additional images may be purchased from the photographer directly at a later date.)
We will also have a behind-the-scenes photographer to catch you in action so you have some great content for your social!
Come be a good one!
