Class of 2009! Senior Ambassadors Wanted

Uncategorized

It’s that time again… Thousands of high school juniors in the San Francisco Bay Area are beginning to dig into what’s ahead in the next year. The most stressful of all of them, junior year deals with the PSAT, the SAT, the beginning of AP tests, scouting out colleges, thinking about college applications, junior proms, working on your “high school portfolio”, researching scholarships and grants, driving, and that just scratches the surface. Fall semester started this whole mess and now there’s the great spring semester push to keep grades especially high for the transcript.

Spring semester is also a busy time for me, too. Holiday portraits are over but senior portraits have just begun. That’s right, this year’s juniors are now dealing with another deadline: Senior Portraits!

Lindsay Docherty Photography is looking for this year’s juniors to apply for the Class of 2009 Senior Ambassadors!

We want those of you who participate in school activities such as sports, cheerleading, drama, band, clubs, and student government – as these students tend to be the most outgoing, and therefore make excellent senior models. But, even if you’re not involved in these activities, maybe there’s something else that really inspires you. Go ahead and contact me at lmdocherty@gmail.com. It’ll be lots of fun, and you will get some incredible portraits in the end.

What:
You get a free photography session for your senior portraits. And these won’t be the “sit there – turn your head – put your hand daintily under your chin – look off into the distance like a fool and smile” pictures. I don’t like a lot of posing; I don’t like big, bright flashing lights; I don’t like taking the same pictures of everyone. Bring props to your session. If it’s meaningful to you, it’s meant to be in your pictures. These can include your guitar, sports equipment, sunglasses, art supplies, car, etc. It is all about getting you and your friends the best possible professional photography for their senior portraits. The more people you refer to Lindsay Docherty Photography, the better your rewards will be. I love the energy and creativity that high school seniors uniquely bring to each session. Not a single one is similar to any other.

Who:
San Francisco Bay Area high school seniors graduating in 2009 are eligible for this fantastic offer. If you think you have what it takes, email Lindsay at lmdocherty@gmail.com and I will send you a short application. Sign up quickly as I’ll only be accepting at most two seniors from each school and these openings will go fast.

When:
Sessions will take place during the summer and fall of 2008.

Where:
I have some great go-to places but it’s all up to you. Where do you want to go? Anywhere down the peninsula is fair game.

Why:
• Senior Ambassadors receive a fun, free portrait session in the summer or fall of 2008. When you tell people about what a great time you had with Lindsay Docherty Photography, I want it to be the truth. (a $325 value)

• Free images to post on your myspace account (a $200 value)

• Free senior album with your best pics and room for notes from friends (only available to senior ambassadors)

• Free student business cards to help you earn credits (only available to senior ambassadors)

• 5% off of your portraits for each referral*, up to 60% off

• The top producing Ambassador will win an iPod Nano

Tips for the successful Ambassador
Our most successful Ambassadors have made personal contact by mail or email to their classmates.

• Take your album with you anytime you are going to be with friends this summer, you will always find someone who is interested.

• Show your discount business cards every time you show your album.

• Hand out every business card to someone who you think will actually book a session.

• Look to your friends and family to help you earn a portraits of a lifetime!

*Referrals can be for Families, Children, Seniors, Maternity, Engagement, Weddings, Modeling or even Pet photography. Any one of your referrals that books a session counts!

Headshot session by the ballpark
I had a great session with Grace the other day. She performs (acts and sings) in plays in her spare time (which isn't much). She's from England and has just a fabulous British accent. She's also got these stunning clear blue eyes. Chek them out... Grace has a very genuine smile that came out easily. Making a serious face was a task - when asked how to do it her friend told her to "think of something serious, like dog poo." Serious indeed.Again, I've been lucky to get someone totally laid back.This is the one that she ultimately chose for her headshot in an upcoming production program.Keep an eye open for Grace coming to a city near you! ...

November Facebook Image & the fight against MS
This year has been more crazy and wonderful than I ever could have imagined. I started the year off running my very first marathon. I had spent countless hours in training, vowing to never put myself through such misery again. But then I crossed that finish line and it was the most euphoric feeling in the world. I got the bug. I decided to train and run in the Philly Marathon this November.In June I participated in the messy MuckRuckus benefiting the National Multiple Sclerosis Society. I badly rolled my ankle some time after mile 3 and had to leave the run. A trip to the doctor confirmed that I had fractured my ankle and had ...
