CAT-Lite Commercial Edition: $350 ($450 for non members)
For: Commercial talent, fashion models bridging to commercial.
Commercial models need completely different images for their board. You can also mix these shoots with our headshots that are so popular with actors and commercial talent.
We shoot a lot of fashion models that are bridging to commercial work and this is a perfect shoot for doing this.
It's one of our favorite words. If unfamiliar, it's used to describe a fashion model that is "bridging" from the fashion to the commercial board. Sometimes it's just to increase overall bookings, and often it's because the fashion work is slowing down due to age.
The images aren't sexy; they're usually happy or show a variety of moods and emotions. Most of them include big broad smiles. What someone would do when engaged with a product or service they're very happy with.
This can take some work for many models. Teeth alone don't make a smile. The mouth has to match the eyes and key facial characteristics.
You can also add an "expression sheet". A contact sheet of fun emotions designed to demonstrate your range. The images on these sheets are for the most part un-retouched which gives agencies an extra sense of who they are considering.
These emotions can be mostly smiles, or even better - completely different emotions. You can even get corny with them, it shows life and character.
