Model Development Workshops

The upcoming workshops in New York City with Photographer Chris Carroll are a perfect introduction for models to learn first-hand of what’s expected in a competitive market. The objective is to prepare models to work with clients/creatives, build portfolios, and gain a strong foundation in becoming successful models. Often new models may feel overwhelmed or lack direction of how to successfully navigate the industry for themselves to see benefits from their efforts. These workshops will help models approach their role to best set themselves up for success. 

Live photoshoot exercises also add images to each model’s portfolio, allowing opportunity to work through current blocks and gain industry expectations.

Following the workshop, all participants will receive (4) retouched images toward their portfolio, downloadable resources, and a voucher toward a future shoot with Chris Carroll Photography.
