What is the EMP Teen Model Team?

What is the EMP Teen Model Team? It's a wonderful way for high school teens to not only gain experience in front of the camera, but also to express and celebrate their individuality in an imaginative way.

 

The EMP Teen Model Team actually consists of two teams: The Senior Team (currently, Class of 2024), and the Ones2Watch Team, which includes emerging Sophomores (2026) and Juniors (2025).

 

The applications for both teams open in January of each year, and the selections are made by early February.

 

Who qualifies to be an EMP Model? YOU DO! All teens in their Freshman, Sophomore, and Junior years of high school can apply to be on this year's team. No model experience is necessary.

 

The EMP Model Team is truly a representation of all the vastly different types of teens in Columbus Ohio - all beautiful (and handsome) in their own unique way!

Being on the EMP Teen Model Team for Seniors is the ultimate experience! We start off with an introductory session, and then team members can select their favorite themed sessions to participate in. Every year the themes are different, but all are fun and unique. Former themes include woodland, boho, urban warehouse, Athletic, Old Hollywood, fashion through the decades & many others.

The best part about being on the EMP Teen Model Team for Seniors is participation in Creative Portrait Sessions. I am constantly creating images for international photographic competitions throughout the year, and I also teach Creative Portrait workshops to other photographers. Any time I plan for these images I seek models first from The EMP Teen Model Team for Seniors.

Sound like fun? IT IS!!

 

There is no cost to be on the EMP Teen Model Team for Seniors. Some, not all of the sessions require advanced hair and makeup services, and models are required to cover that at a rate of $150 per session. But I provide plenty of opportunities for models to participate in sessions at no cost to them.

 

Other perks for being on the EMP Teen Model Team for Seniors:

 

~ Web-sized watermarked images from your sessions to share on-line ~

(1-10 images per session depending on the complexity of the session styling and editing)

 

~ You earn $100 toward your senior photo session collection ~

 

~ First access to best senior session dates ~

 

~ The EMP Teen Model Team Magazine ~

 

~ Model Team bling ~

 

~ Images from model sessions will be added to your senior photo gallery ~

 

 

*Emerging seniors who plan to use Erica Manning Photography for their senior session

will be given preference for placement on The EMP Teen Model Team for Seniors.
