2017 Model Callout Sessions

March 20, 2017

Whoa. All kinds of surprises and new things are going on over here! We’re getting ready for an update, overhaul, and a whole new look. What does this mean? The same quality photography that we’ve been known for, but an updated website and logo is in the works and I couldn’t be more excited! It also means that we are bringing back Model Callout Sessions!!!! We haven’t hosted Model Callout sessions for the past 3 years, and we are excited to bring them back for a limited time to celebrate our new updates!

What are Madel Callout Sessions? In 2012, 2013, & 2014 I hosted a limited number of totally FREE portrait sessions that I dubbed the “Model Callout Sessions”. I hosted these free sessions to stay inspired, feed my creativity, and gain promotional material for my portfolio. Model Callout Sessions hold a special place in my heart, and if there was the time to host them every year I would! However, due to a busier schedule, we no longer host these sessions yearly and it’s unknown when they will come back again (so don’t miss out on our 2017 Model Callout Sessions).

These photo sessions are intended to be a win/win situation for my clients as well as for myself. Those selected will receive a FREE portrait session as well as a limited number of FREE professionally retouched digital files, with a full print release (a minimum of a $500 value). In exchange for the portrait session and digital files, models must sign a full model release. Model Callout Sessions are very similar to our regular portrait sessions, the only difference being that I have more creative control in terms of location, wardrobe, and the date and time of the session.

More than anything we value authenticity and genuine moments. We’re not looking for professional models, and no modeling experience is required to apply.

Are you in? Ready to apply for your FREE PHOTO SESSION?! Please email me at mary@marybrunst.com the following info:

1.) Your first and last name

2.) A recent picture of yourself (if applying for a child, family, or couple session, please include their picture and name(s) as well)

3.) A photo of your favorite room in your house

4.) One thing you are passionate about!

We are looking to include two Day In The Life photo sessions in our 2017 Model Callout (a Day In The Life session fee, outside of our Model Callout, is $450 with all digital files sold separately – packages start at $250. A total savings of $700). Day In The Life Sessions take place in our client’s home and last anywhere from 2-6 hours. The photography is documentary in nature, and our desire is to authentically capture all the sweet little moments that tell the story of your life.

For regular portrait sessions(a Standard Portrait Session fee, outside of our Model Callout, is $250 with all digital files sold separately – packages start at $250. A total savings of $500) we are most looking to photograph children 8mo. to 10 years of age, artist and craftsmen that are small business owners, and young couples. However, if you don’t fit into any of these categories please still feel free to apply! 

A few guidelines:
• All portrait sessions must take place within 50 miles of Westminster, MD or a travel charge will apply.
• All participants younger than 18 years of age must have a parent or guardian sign their model release.

Feel free to contact me with any questions that you have (mary@marybrunst.com). I can’t wait to get started and I can’t wait to creatively collaborate with you! These sessions are SO MUCH FUN!!!!
