Introducing… Model for a Day Workshop!

We are so excited to announce something very special. In collaboration with Melbourne Fashion Week, we are launching the brand-new Model for a Day Workshop!

Have you ever dreamt about trying out Professional Modelling? Have people been telling you that you’ve got what it takes? Maybe you’ve just been accepted to join a model agency and are not sure what to do now?

This workshop is ideal for the ‘aspiring model’ or for anyone who wants to experience what it’s like to be a professional model.

Becoming an in-demand and successful model is not something that happens by fluke. This one-day model workshop will give you hands-on, practical training in the skills and techniques required to pursue a career in modelling.

Our Model for a Day Workshop Includes the Following:

Runway Training

Learn the ‘Model Walk’ from experts!

Our practical runway classes will have you walking like a professional model in no time. These highly practical lessons will teach you posture in movement, catwalk technique and choreography, model turns and more.

Pose with Confidence for the Camera

You will learn how to move confidently in front of the camera and how to pose and be photographed to ensure the best results.

Photographic posing lessons include the importance of good posture, basic poses, your best angles, lighting awareness and facial expressions.

Professional Photo Shoot

Work with our experienced Photographer and Professional Hair & Make-up Artist as they direct you through a real photoshoot. Upon completion, you will receive approximately 30 colour photographs (soft copies in high resolution – an ideal start to your portfolio). You will feel like a real model during our Professional Photo Shoot.

Personal Branding Development

In this fast-paced world, there’s an increasing emphasis on personal branding, no matter what field you are in. Regardless of whether you end up pursuing modelling or not, our Model for a Day Workshop experience will set you up for success in life. The skills that we teach you are transferrable and crucial to optimise your own personal marketing and professionalism. Having a genuine presence and confidence will enhance your personal brand, both online and infield.

Learn from the Best!

Our Model for a Day Workshops are hosted by a team of highly successful industry professionals. Whilst they have many years of professional modelling experience, they are also still actively working in the industry. This ensures the skills and knowledge you acquire are current and relevant to today’s scene.

In 2021, our ‘Model for a Day’ workshops will be facilitated by Ashlee Scotland, who has modelled extensively in Tokyo, Beijing, Los Angeles, London and Australia. With over a decade of industry experience, Ashlee has appeared in campaigns and commercials for clients such as Gorman, Bonds, Spec Savers, Samsung and Fila. Her runway experience extends to the catwalks of Dion Lee, Patrick Owen and Sportsgirl, as well as being in the music videos of some top Australian artists such as Kylie Minogue, REMI and Moonbase.

Ashlee has worked in both High Fashion and Commercial markets. She is passionate about mentoring others and sharing her experiences to inspire and help you to make the best decisions for your own career across the many areas modelling covers.
