I have some exciting news for current high school juniors (those graduating in 2018!) After some thought and planning I finally designed my brand new Senior Spokesmodel Program and am now accepting applications through the end of March.
Let's start with the basics. What is a Senior Spokesmodel?
Senior Spokesmodels (Reps) are exclusive spokespersons/representatives for Yesenia Bocanegra Photography. Senior Reps are local high school students who are graduating seniors of the class of 2018. Spokesmodels can be from any high school in and around the Raleigh/Durham/Chapel Hill area. Senior Spokesmodels will be responsible for marketing Yesenia Bocanegra Photography to their friends, family, or acquaintances through the use of social media (Facebook, Instagram and Twitter) and rep cards. The goal is quite simple; refer as many people as possible and earn some awesome goodies in return. Referrals don't have to be exclusively for senior portraits, they can be anything from senior sessions, family portraits or even kids portrait session for the siblings (if you have one that is).
So, what´s in it for me?
- All of the chosen Senior Spokesmodels will have a mini portrait session to announce their participation as a YBP Senior Spokesmodel. You will also get a chance to hangout with other Senior Spokesmodels on this day! (This is in addition to your custom senior portrait session.) This session will take place in the Raleigh-Durham area in April.
- As a YBP-Senior Spokesmodel you will receive a complimentary 3 hour on location or studio Senior Portrait Session with Yesenia Bocanegra Photography, which includes unlimited outfit changes within the time allotted, a pre-session wardrobe and styling consultation, and professional hair and makeup ($390 Value).
- You also receive 25 custom designed Senior Rep cards to share with your friends, family, etc. ($50 Value)*
- We know you're into Social Media so we're also throwing in 5 watermark images for you to share online.
- One cinemagraph profile photo (an animated portrait) ($170 Value).
- $10 print credit for each referred photo session.
- Refer 5 people and receive a a copy of your behind the scenes video for your senior portrait session ($250 Value) **
- Refer 10 people and receive a full size, custom designed 8”x8” album of images from your proofing gallery ($900 Value) **
- Refer 15 people and receive a disk of all images from your gallery with print rights ($2500 Value)**
*Complimentary sessions and goodies are free of charge as long as you have one completed referral. 2018 Spokesmodels with zero referrals by December 1, 2017, will be required to pay rep card fee that was waived.
**Referral sessions must be completed and paid in full before credits and rewards are honored.
Ok I refereed someone, what do they get?
If your referral completes a photo session with Yesenia Bocanegra Photography they will receive a 10% discount on their session and a complimentary 8”x10” print coupon by presenting your Senior Rep Card or liking us on Facebook and leaving a comment on our wall letting us know who referred them (tell them to use the [@] to tag you). Please note that your referral will be required to complete a model release.
