Approximately every two to three months for fashion and one to two times per year for talent, Mode Elle arranges for a top industry recognized photography team to travel to Belleville to photograph our Models & Talent and develop their portfolios (modelling) or talent headshots (acting/talent). These photography teams will give you direction as well as make you feel fabulous, comfortable and confident! During your experience you will be pampered, feel glamorous and benefit from the true experience of a professional fashion or talent photoshoot!
The photography teams that travel to Mode Elle are the same photographers, make-up artists/hairstylists and fashion wardrobe stylists who work for Canada’s top fashion magazines, advertising campaigns and catalogues including; Fashion, Flare, Elle, Harper’s Bazaar, Marie Claire, Seventeen, Lou Lou, Glow, More, Sears, The Bay, Winners, Puma, Nike, Adidas, Holt Renfrew, Guess? & Stitches to just name a few! Our models and actors are photographed by the best in the business therefore they have best pictures in their portfolio or the best talent headshot to get started! Photoshoots at Mode Elle are approx. $100-$200 less expensive than if you traveled to Toronto or Montreal to shoot with the same photography team. At Mode Elle, we book our photoshoots based on volume, therefore we can negotiate a lower rate, saving you both time and money (traveling to Toronto/Montreal, parking, gas, accommodations, etc…).
It is important to note that you do not need professional pictures if you are only interested in working locally or exclusively modelling or acting as a hobby. Photoshoots are OPTIONAL and are only necessary if you want to pursue modelling or acting professionally as a career on a national &/or international level.
What Happens at a Photoshoot to Develop a Models Portfolio!?
Models arrive at the photoshoot with a clean face (no make-up!) and clean hair (no product in it). Female & male models ages 12 & over do not have to bring clothing as there will be a Wardrobe Stylist on-set. When you first arrive, you are fitted for your wardrobe; two different outfits/looks. The Wardrobe Stylist brings the hottest and latest trends in designer clothing, accessories and shoes. Mode Elle sends the photoshoot schedule containing all of the model’s measurements and sizes to the Wardrobe Stylist two weeks prior to the photoshoot. Once your wardrobe is selected, you go to the make-up and hair chair and your transformation begins! Once your look is completed, you get into the outfit which was selected for you and shoot your first look. Once your first look is finished, it’s back to make-up & hair and the process starts all over again to prepare you for your second look!
What Happens at a Photoshoot to Develop an Actor’s Talent Headshot!?
This photoshoot is to obtain Talent Headshots necessary for obtaining work in the field of Acting: TV commercials, music videos, television and film. Actors participating in a talent headshot photoshoot are to bring their own wardrobe as there is no wardrobe stylist. Actors arrive at the photoshoot with a clean face (no make-up!) and clean hair (no product in it). The photography team will assist you in selecting your wardrobe for the photoshoot. From there, you go to the make-up and hair chair. For a talent headshot, actors should look like themselves - the real you! – looking as natural as possible. Once your first look is finished, it’s back to make-up & hair and the process starts all over again to prepare you for your second look!
Photoshoots are Available to Mode Elle Models & Actors Only.
