Thank you!



We are in search of women of varying ethnicities to update our Beauty and Glamour Portfolio. 

We are particularly interested in darker skin tones such as those of African, Caribbean or South American descent. However, any ethnic background will be considered and we encourage you to apply.

We will choose you for your unique look and style. This is not a beauty competition, so please don't let that hold you back. We will consider women of all ages and body types. 

If chosen, you will be required to sign a Model Release (see FAQs below)

In return for your services, we will wave our standard session fee and provide you with two 11 X 14 matted and mounted prints, ready for framing. You will also recieve the corresponding high resolution digital files and printing rights. This package is valued at $340.

We will require a $50 refundable deposit to book your session. (see FAQs).

To enter, please complete the form below and attach a photo or two using the upload button. This call is open until March 31, 2018 or until models are selected.

Also see FAQs below the form.

If you ave any additional questions or comments, please ask in the message box.

We look forward to your submission!





Frequently Asked Questions (FAQS)


1. What is a Model Release?

This is a consent form signed by you to allow us to use the images we take of you for our website, social media, and print marketing. 

2. Do I need experience modelling or posing?

Not at all. You just need to be your beautiful self. Our style of shooting does require sitting and standing in different poses, however, we will guide you every step of the way and help you feel relaxed so you can enjoy the experience.

3. Where will the photo session take place and how long is it?

The photo session will take place in our home studio. Please allow up to 2 hours depending on how many wardrobe changes you have.

4. What type of photos will you be taking of me? 

The style of our photos can be described as contemporary beauty and glamour. We focus on your true total beauty and not just your physical beauty. Outfits should be classy and glamourous for the most part. We are OK with some comfy casual shots as well.

5. Will you be taking boudoir shots? 

That is not our intention for this model call. If you're interested in boudoir, please make a separate request. 

6. Will you provide hair and makeup?

We do not typically provide hair and make-up for model calls. This will be up to you. We will be glad to include it for a fee of $125. Please allow one extra hour for the session if you choose to include this.

7. Why are you asking for a $50 deposit?

We are looking for people who are serious and willing to make the commitment. In return, we are setting aside time from our business to create beautiful portraits of you. The deposit is fully refundable and will be returned to you immediately after your shoot.

8. What if I need to reschedule?

The shoot will take place at a mutually agreeable time. Once booked, it will not be rescheduled except for emergency reasons or at the discretion of the photographer. Please note that the deposit will be forfeited if you fail to show at the agreed upon date and time.

9. How will I see and receive my image?

Approximately 2 weeks after your session, we will invite you back to our studio to view your images and select your favourite. The print will then be ordered, prepared and delivered to you. You an expect to see a minimum of 20 images.

10. What if I can't decide and like more than one?

That would be awesome!. It's our job to create images of you that you love. The remaining images will be available for purchase at our regular prices, however, you are under no pressure or obligation to do so.


11. How do I know this isn't just a scheme to lure me in to having to spend money? It almost sounds to good to be true. 

We are fully upfront about our intention, which is to build our portfolio. In return you will be given a professional, archival, mounted and matted 11 X 14 print at no charge. There is absolutely no obligation to spend money.

Bear in mind that we are a fully licensed and legal operating business in the City of Edmonton. We certainly do not wish to damage our reputation with deceptive tactics.

Please feel free to contact us if you have any other questions.
