What we're about

Designed to give aspiring models professional-level experience & killer folios! Monthly themed shoots are created exclusively for Utah Model Meetup members to help them gain the kind of experience that will boost them to a professional level. Models will receive images shot by Em Parker and other photographers. Some shoots will even provide makeup and hair styling. This group is created especially for Models, however occasionally, photographers and stylists might be invited to participate in specific events and each announcement will indicate whether they will be needed or not.

Participation in photoshoots will be free of charge for modeling members who RSVP (some events will require additional fees for photographers). If you participate in a shoot and get photos taken by Em Parker, your image will be added to Utah Models for Hire (https://www.emparkerportrait.com/modelsforhire) database, a $300 voucher towards a customized Fashion Photoshoot with Em Parker Portrait (https://www.emparkerportrait.com/seeyou/), and access to the network of creatives in our group for collaborating.
