FAQs about TOPCat MODEL ShootOut
1. I'm not exactly new, but can I join?
Sure you can. As long as you are open to learning, we welcome you. The modeling profession, like photography, is so dynamic that there's always new things to learn.
2. When is the ShootOut Session?
There will be a few in May 2010. Weekdays and weekends. Call in to make appointment. If we're full on that day, we are flexible on date and time, so just fix another date that is convenient for all.
3. Do I have to pay anything?
NO. We are not charging for this session because this specially catered for models who want to improve themselves. When models improve and gain more knowledge, it helps photographers. That is good enough for us.
4. What comes after this ShootOut Session?
We will include you in TOPCat Studio's NextTopModel List, which means that we will contact you for any future shoots, if you are available/interested.
5. Do I get paid for future shoots?
Yes, if we find that you have enough experience to model professionally.
Not yet, if we find that you still need exposure and guidance. Usually, by the 3rd shoot, you will already be paid a mutually agreed upon fee, unless you still need lots of guidance.
7. Can we model for other photographers after this?
Of course you can. We encourage you to take on offers from other photographers for modeling assignments. That is how you can continue to grow professionally. Infact, we will recommend you to other studios who are in need of models. We leave it to you to discuss your fees with them.
8. Why is TOPCat Studio doing this for free?
Because we're good, generous, kind....(teeheehee...) and also because we find that there are many new models who want to be good, but have no proper direction and guidance. Good looks alone does not guarantee you a great future as a model. Most important is, we believe, to have a great POSITIVE attitude. When you have great attitude, you can take on anything. We like to impart these knowledge to you, because we can. We have been blessed in that we're able to pursue what what we are passionate about - it's time to give back. So you see, the best things in life ARE free...Furthermore, we also require fresh talents from time to time. So we do need to have a talented pool of models.
9. I have already done lots of shooting session with other photographers, should I have another one with TOPCat Studio?
Only you can answer that. Remember that with us, we will also impart knowledge on being a professional model.
10. Can I have my Modeling Portfolio done with TOPCat Studio?
Sure you can. It's important for you to be comfortable with the photographer who's doing your portfolio shoot. There must be trust and mutual understanding. If you find that in us after your ShootOut session, stick with us!
11. What else do you offer to models like us?
Besides tea and coffee...we plan to host mini learning sessions in future, specially for models. So you do need to be on our list....
If those don't cover your questions, just ask further.
Thank you for taking the time to digest all these info. We can't wait to start.
Cheers and have a great day!
