Model Development

“Modeling” does not only refer to wearing high-end clothing and appearing in fashion magazines and on runways. Modeling also refers to “acting” for print. Companies such as Disney, Universal, Florida Hospital, Choice Hotels, Publix Supermarkets and many others cast their commercial/print talent out of Orlando. These companies are searching for models and talent of all types. Any actor wishing to work in the Central Florida market should certainly explore this side of the industry so that they become as versatile, experienced, and employable as possible.

Our Model Development Workshops are designed for dedicated students who want to secure representation, and eventually begin booking work in the modeling industry. We offer professional, employment-driven model development and training, as well as the opportunity for placement in top market agencies.

Each Model Development Workshop will include:

  • Basics of Modeling
  • Business of Modeling
  • Acting for Print
  • Specialized Skills and Techniques Specific to the Particular Style of Modeling Being Covered (i.e. High End Fashion, Studio, Commercial, etc.)
  • PRODIGY: Portfolio Shoot!

You’ll get real world experience while building your portfolio. We call these experiences PRODIGY: Portfolio Shoots!

On Day 1, Model Development students will learn the on-camera skills and techniques specific to the particular style of modeling being covered. (i.e. High End Fashion, Studio, Commercial, etc.)

On Day 2, a professional photographer will come in for a shoot in the style of the genre of modeling that the class is learning. Students will then receive one final, edited shot from the photographer to add to their portfolios.
