STAR ONE PHOTOGRAPHY - 2020 AMBASSADOR SEARCH

Group shoot

 

The Lowdown

Do you like having fun?  Do you want to become friends with dancers/gymnasts at other studios/gyms and create unforgettable memories?  Do you want professional photos?  If you answered "Yes" to all of these, you are in the right place!

I am choosing a group of individuals to represent the Star One Photography brand.  Who am I looking for?  I want someone who is passionate about what they do, whether it's dance, gymnastics or cheer.  He or she is someone who is kind and supportive of others.  Individuals who have a strong social media presence will be favored, however, this is NOT just about the numbers...it's also about the content.  Most of the ambassadors chosen will be near Cincinnati and nearby areas, but I hope to have a couple of destination members as part of this team from both the St. Louis and Chicago areas.  If you live outside these areas and want to apply, contact me before applying to discuss.  This family of ambassadors is important to me, and I will invest a lot of time into it, and into those on the team.

Benefits of being a Star One Photography Ambassador include all of the following, and more!

The Requirements

1.  The application process:  Start on Instagram with the 4 steps listed on the image titled "Star One Ambassador Search" posted on May 17.  Next, submit an email address and Instagram name below.  I will send additional details with a link to the online application.  The final step is to fill out that application with a parent.

2.  It is free to apply.  Not all who apply will be selected.  If selected, a full-length session will need to be purchased ($250).  The session payment is not due until after the team has been announced and a private/solo photo shoot has been scheduled (starting mid-June).  Flexible payment plans are available.  More info about the payment is listed under the form below in the "Questions" section.

3.  Duties during the ambassadors term are simple.  Other than having fun and enjoying a new family of "teammates," they will need to add an ambassador link in the Instagram Bio section, and tag me in the photos I have taken that you choose to share on social media.  That's it!  I will NOT require ambassadors to post a certain number of images each week/month.  There will be zero pressure to be a salesman for me.

 

Questions & Answers

Q1.  Is there a fee to be on the team?
A1.  Yes.  The fee is the exact same as booking a full-length private/solo session with me ($250).  But...you will be getting MUCH more than the full-session in return (3 guaranteed sessions, and probably a lot more if you choose to attend group sessions and other "concept" sessions).  The cost helps offset expenses such as renting studio time and branded merchandise.  Payment plans are available.  Applying is free, and there is no commitment to submit your info below.  Payment(s) are not due until the time of each person's full-length session.

Q2.  What are the guaranteed photo sessions?
A2.  Each ambassador will get at least 3 sessions (and probably several more).  The 3 sessions are a full-length private/solo session, a "Friends" session, and a studio session.  In addition, there will be group sessions you can choose to attend, plus a lot of spur-of-the-moment sessions (examples of these might be me asking who is available to shoot a "Red, White, and Blue" session before the Fourth of July, or asking who is available to shoot at 7pm for an hour and taking the first person who can commit).

Q3.  Can someone apply if they haven't worked with you yet?
A3.  Yes, anyone can apply!  Most of the ambassadors will be near Cincinnati/Dayton/Northern Kentucky, but I also hope individuals outside of those areas will apply.

Q4.  If I am an ambassador for you, will I be allowed to shoot with other photographers?
A4.  Yes.  The purpose of this team is to benefit BOTH of us.  It is not just about promoting me.  If I said "You can only shoot with me," that might prevent you from other opportunities, and I do not want that to happen.

Q5.  How long is the term length of an ambassador?
A5.  The term will be approximately one year.  A new ambassador search will happen in the Spring of 2021.
