2018 Seniors Ignite Shootout - [the13], images by Vokal Photography <--click to scroll-->
What is It?
A model competition hosted by the highly regarded education group for professional senior photographers called Seniors Ignite. Entries include a series of your senior session images selected by me plus a personal narrative written and a short video recorded by you. Winners attend a two day shootout, with Jan, this year in Austin, Texas where you are a fashion model for two full days involved in fully styled photo shoots with photographers from all over the United States at pre-arranged locations around Austin!
CONTESTANTS ARE JUDGED IN 2 ROUNDS:
ROUND 1: FINALIST SELECTION ROUND:
This would be considered the first cut.
If you are selected as a finalist, you have the option of purchasing and attending my WANDERLUST Destination Shoot January 25th/26th (2 days prior to the Seniors Ignite Model Shootout) in Austin, Texas!
Vokal Photography will provide $300 toward your purchase of [theWANDERLUST] session for being selected as a finalist.
See [theWANDERLUST] page for more details about the Destination Shoot.
ROUND 2: WINNER SELECTION ROUND:
This would be considered the final cut.
The winners are chosen from the group of first round finalists. If you are selected, you, Jan and a parent chaperone get to attend the two-day Seniors Ignite Shootout January 2019 in Austin, Texas where you will experience two days of a dreamy modeling experience complete with your own private hair/makeup/stylist teams, pose coaching and nonstop paparazzi!
Vokal Photography will provide $500 toward your expenses.
