Professional Print Model Program
What will you gain?
Pristine Wardrobe (Not including the Green Bean Package)- KIP believes that all children should have the opportunity to look as fresh as the next child. A parent should not be responsible for styling their child unless they are a branded wardrobe stylist which most of us are not. Often times we are rushing our shoots, not paying attention to the smallest details. This method has become time consuming very stressful for both the parent and the child. KIP will alleviate this burden for you and provide wardrobe for ALL SHOOTS.
Makeup & Hair: KIP will include 1 Beauty Portrait Makeup (does not include Green Bean) each month if the shoot requires it. Basic applications will be taught by our house MUA within the first month of being enrolled (over 11 years). Each child over 11 will be required to wear a light coat of makeup at all her shoots. Same for hair. Dramatic hair will be included if necessary. Basic styling is excluded.
Off Site Shoots (pending progress report): All outdoor shoots will be located outside the perimeters of the studio. Each shoot needs a different look and feel to them. In order to achieve this, we will be branching off to local and non-local locations. There may be airfare, hotel, travel costs.
Viral Shoots Possibilities: Shoots that have viral capabilities (themed, specialty, controversial, look alike shoots). It's no secret that many of our shoots have gone viral. With proper social media direction, your child's photos have the ability to be featured by celebrities and the like.
Themed Shoots: Fairy tale, Comicon, Musician Look Alike, Movie Cover, Cereal Box, Pageant Photos, etc. Each child will have their choice of a themed shoot pending progress report results quarterly.
Magazine Features: KIP will be submitting their photos to magazines for features. If the magazine offers payment for photos, KIP kids will be paid as well. There is no guarantee that your child will be featured in a magazine however. It's important to understand that we have your children's best interest at heart in promoting and advertising.
Behind the Scenes Videos - These videos drive traffic to your website/social media, engage potential clients and give them peace of mind when hiring you, and greatly increases word of mouth advertising. Stand-out among your peers and reserve videography for your shoot *Optional Costs associated*
Job Leads - KIP has a private page just for KIP kids/adults. Talent uses this page to apply for jobs fit just for them. Every month the submissions are reviewed for professionalism and effectiveness. We feel it's important for children to get real life local experience before hopping on the next train to NYC. Keep in mind, this is just one of the advantages of being in the program. You are not paying for KIP to submit you for jobs, nor is KIP taking a commission. We are not representing you as a manager nor a talent agency.
Activities - Encourages team building, confidence, public speaking, and time management. All the important components necessary to be successful in this industry.
Industry Standard Photos (UPDATED PHOTOS): KIP has been conducting research across the country to determine the industry standard for agencies and they all have different requirements and change consistently. They consist of standard Commercial and Standard Model portfolio photos. They are not artistic, just basic catalog photos. You will be interviewed to determined if your child qualifies for either category of these photos. If your child is signed with an agency, you will be required to have a representative from the agency confirm their choice of photos. There will be samples to choose from. Un-watermarked photos are optional. Please keep in mind that agencies will try and force you to use their photographers in order to represent your child. This cost is around $1500 for 8 photos. Be mindful and do your research. Agencies should not force you to pay their photographers just to represent you. In rare cases, the agency may want their online portfolios to have the same look and feel which is acceptable, however should not make or break you becoming signed with the agency. Some of these agencies have agreements with their photographers who will give them a % of the cost of the photos sold. Then within 6 months, you find yourself paying another $1500 for another batch of photos. KIP standard photos have been used and accepted by several agencies to get children signed with agencies. Don't be fooled. We have email examples of what several agencies along the East Coast prefer, and guess what?? They are all different.
Time Shoots are scheduled in 30-1 hr increments to allow for professional preparation and clothing inspection.
Quantity of Kids: With less children, it provides KIP the opportunity to focus on each child's abilities and hone in on them. We will only be accepting a certain amount of children each quarter.
There are more advantages of course, however the above is where KIP needs to focus most of its concentration for ultimate results. Do you like what you see? Click the Sign Up button below to schedule a meet & greet. Good Luck!
