Senior Model Summit

What is Next?

Next: Senior Model Summit is unlike anything you’ve ever seen before. Sure, there are workshops, shootouts, and conferences all over the place but NEXT is DIFFERENT! We’re starting things off with a national model search! We’re looking for the teens from across the country that have always dreamed of modeling! But we’re not stopping there!! NEXT, you’ll have the opportunity to photograph the winners of the model search at an insane location you can’t get access to anywhere else!

But that’s not it! NEXT, you can add on an optional day of education in this hands on learning experience from three of the top regarded senior photographers! Photographers that know first hand how to run hugely successful model programs, are setting the standard for what teens are looking for, and are named some of the best photographers in the industry.

Did you think we’re done? Nope! NEXT, We’re adding on ANOTHER learning experience and this one is going to blow the roof off! We’re pairing up with not one, but TWO incredibly insane artists OUTSIDE of the senior industry that are known for creating national campaigns and have worked with the most high-end clients out there! 

NEXT Is the evolution of hands-on intensive training and we’re taking it to the NEXT LEVEL! NEXT is sure to raise the bar and it's going to be the event of the year that you’re not going to want to miss!!

For NEXT, we're also giving teens & seniors a chance to come and be a part of a high-end photo production just like you would see for a major editorial campaign. It's for those teens wanting to have a true "model-like" experience and have images that look like they were pulled straight from the pages of a fashion magazine.
