SENIOR MODEL PROGRAM 2019 - 2020
Before you learn about the Best, Most Active, Most Published, Most Fun Senior Model Program ANYWHERE, read what some senior model moms are saying. This is from Chris Cannon, Her daughter Sydney is from Gahanna.
Our Senior Model experience with David Beckham Photography has been everything he promised and more. Being a senior model for David is not just about getting pictures taken it is so much more. My daughter has met and become friends with a number of talented and sweet young ladies from all around the area. She has had the humbling experience of serving those less fortunate at Faith Mission. We have been excited to see her photos published in national publications and getting special recognition. She has learned to work in front of the camera for David and others at his workshops, and even earned a little bit doing so. She was involved in his promotional magazine and video As we expected, we have come away with many amazing, unique pictures. We had no idea these would range from a peacock shoot, to waterfalls, to stage doors and prom pictures with friends. It has been great fun. However, the single most important thing this experience has given us, is her self confidence. She always saw herself as less pretty than the next girl, and rarely went out of the house without makeup. Through this experience, she has been able to see herself as the beautiful young woman she is, and she no longer feels the need to hide behind her makeup. She has learned to love herself and feel confident in her own skin, and this is a true blessing. Thank you David, for an experience we will never forget.
This is from Lexie Sines, Her daughter Rylie is from Grove City High School.
My daughter got the privilege of participating in the senior model program at DBP. I can't say enough about the entire experience. She has had so much fun! David has a special way of relating with his clients and bringing out their individual style and personality. Not only is he one of the best photographers out there, he is very genuine. He gives models the opportunity to give back and volunteer their time serving the homeless, and others in the community. I would recommend David to anyone!
OK So About the program. The Senior Model program is for energetic and out-going senior girls, of the 2019 and 2020 classes. Being a Senior Model at David Beckham Photography isn’t just about trying to sell senior packages to your friends. You will get a great Senior Portrait Experience and you will belong to a exclusive group of other Senior Models that will get plenty of opportunities be photographed, serve the community, earn NHS hours, be used in promotional ads and maybe even get paid to help with other photo projects. You can do as little or as much as you like. Some seniors just like to get a great deal on the best packages and that is alright too! You will have lots of photos to choose from in your final package as your portfolio grows each time you get involved with the extra shooting opportunities.
There are numerous service projects throughout the year. We serve the homeless at least 12 times a year at Faith Mission of Columbus. We do fundraising activities so that we can purchase, prepare and serve dinner and Faith on 8th, or the Community Kitchen. Some days we feed as many as 275 men women and children. The money is raised thru events at my Studio like Halloween at the Village and Christmas. We will also hold the 7th annual Spring Prom Fashion Show. Last year we raised $8,800 which gave us enough to serve at the big kitchen more and purchase some things that they needed too!
If Accepted Your time as a Senior Model will start as soon as I receive your signed contract and $300 deposit toward your Senior Portrait Package. We will do your first two outfit shoot with you soon after signing. After committing to being a David Beckham Senior Model also means that anytime I need senior models for promo shoots, creative shoots, social activities or service projects, you can join in the fun! Each time we do a group shoot you will get individual photos taken as well that will be added to your portfolio. I send out group text messages to let you know what is happening.
SPACES ARE LIMITED AS I ONLY HAVE 34 SENIOR MODELS PER GRADUATING YEAR. I also limit the number per school. If you do submit an application and you aren't selected because I have passed that number in your school you will receive 10 Free Print Units (a $199 value) when you schedule your senior portraits.
There will be two Senior Model packages; The Splurge and Princess. THESE PACKAGES INCLUDE LOTS OF PRINTS AND MANY EXTRAS The investment for these is similar to the standard senior packages. And your initial deposit goes toward the package you choose!
Other Opportunities: You are invited to stop by before for photos for Prom or Homecoming until you graduate! These photos will be put into your portfolio and be part of your Senior Slideshows. From time to time I will need Senior Models to represent me at events I host, community projects, instructional classes and additional events. I will use Senior Models for these events and in some cases you will be paid depending on what we are doing that day. You will receive special phone AP that automatically updates with every new shoot. This Ap can be shared with any family members and the photos on it can be used for social media! This AP normally costs $99 but it is Free when you sign up to be a Senior Model. There is one photo that serves as a personalized discount that you can share too. If I get two of them back during your time as a Senior Model you will get another two outfit session during your Senior Year or get a FREE 16x24 ($249 value)!
So Fill out the application and lets get together and discuss the details even more!
If it's your style - it should be part of your Senior Portrait Expeience!
The window light in the studio is phenomenal! but that's just where it starts. David is an expert in lighting and other professionsals come from all over the country to learn lighting the way he does. Your photos will have that same expertise and attention to detail.
Its not a coincidence that the studio is located in the center of Pickerington's Old Village. It has been the perfect backdrop for hundreds of prints and gallery wraps hanging in homes in central Ohio. Even if you aren't from Pickerington, you will love the photographs we take there.
The Windows of my studio provide a distinct landmark from the outside. They create a magical shooting area on the inside. It can almost be mystical light inside, bringing out a spectacular innocent beauty.
There a wonderful places to splash it up a little with your big day. The creeks have plenty of nature around them for spectacular shots. There are waterfalls in the area too. If you want an urban setting the fountains in the city make a great place for a unique finish to your Senior Portrait Experience.
If sports is part of your life... it should be part of your Senior Portrait Experience. Lets get creative with action shots, cool locations, intense lighting and reflective images.
Before I released the promo video featuring Jessie I noticed a scene where she had zero make-up on. I asked her if she minded and she said, "Of course not!" So I asked one of my Senior Models if she would be interested in doing a natural look, no make-up shoot. It went great and then everyone that I asked said yes, and many asked me if they could do one too. So if this is a look you would like we could shoot those Before my make-up artist does your make-up!
Summer means sunshine, and cute outfits, fashion looks in the city, and playing in a fountain, with long days and warm nights. Lets take advantage of all of that in your Senior Portrait Experience
Fashions are something you wear.
Style is something you are.
Show off Your Style!

Snow makes for some gorgeous photos, fuzzy hoods, snowflakes in your hair, pretty dresses, it all works great. You can add a snow session to your Senior Portrait Experience!
Spring flowers are the most sought after for pretty photographs. Chances are you already had your senior portraits taken. That doesn't mean you can't ad them to your Senior Portrait Experience!
Fall is the most popular time of the year for Senior Portraits, the colors are beautiful, the temps are perfect for comfortable outfits. We'll find fall colors from September until the end of November but schedule that shoot early. You don't want to miss this.

Editorial Photography tells a story. You will see editorial shoots with models which are more about selling an emotion than a fashion or product. It doesn't look posed, and appears more casual. It doesn't mean serious either, real smiles and laughter and conversation work well in Editorial shoots. When I shoot them though every detail will be covered, like perfect lighting and clarity, locations that add to the story and the little things that make your senior portrait experience stand out.
Any photograph can easily be converted to the classic look and feel of Black & White. But some outfits and looks are meant to be photographed that way. You will get a couple B&Ws with your session and we will specifically take more if requested.
Wildflowers are the most popular Session Extra and can be included in all of the packages except the Basic. There are flowers and blossoms 9 months out of the year in this area and there are medows and fields of tall grasses that make for keepsake images that look great on your wall.
I have two amazing certified professional make-up artists. They are trained in the latest techniques and they use the best quality supplies and equipment. They know fashion and they know how I do photography. I have been working with Ericka for since 2007 and Madeline 2015. They won't make you look like someone else, they won't over do things either. They will fix something if you don't like it and they will help you feel and look beautiful to get you ready for excellent photos. Make-up is included in the Splurge and Princess Packages and can be added to the the others for $70
Hey we won't have to sneak into Hobby Lobby and your photos will have perfect light!
