What is Miami Model Camps?
We are all about providing incredible photographs and videos which results in educating people who are interested in getting into the modeling and acting industry. If anybody has ever said you should be a model and you would like to try but don’t know how to go forward we can help by providing insider information, advice, contacts and most importantly an on set experience that you will not only enjoy but will culminate in amazing photographs and/or videos.
What makes you different than other model camps or model boot camps?
We believe the best way for aspiring models and actors to develop themselves is to have experience being in front of the camera. That is what we do with you more than anything else. We spend some time in talking to you about skin care, attitude, confidence, work ethic, strategy and networking – but where we are ultimately different is in the area of what goes on with you in front of the camera. Take a look at the quality of the photographs and videos on this site and decide if working on this level of production is an experience you would like and the photographs or videos the kind you would want for yourself of yourself.
What if I cannot make it to one of the camps you have scheduled?
We have different plans and test options. If you would like a customized individual session check out the options and rates. No matter what level you decide to participate in, at minimum you get quality photographs of yourself on at least three sets and a DVD with all your photos The top tier option will also provide for a standard model portfolio, three laser prints and a set of 50 comp cards. Then if you opt in for a video you will get an edited piece about a week later. If you are coming from out of town we will help you with referrals to quality local hotels that we work with where you can get reduced rates.
Are you a model agency? Will I get jobs or a contract from you?
No. But we will give you information and direct contact details to model agencies here in Miami and throughout the United States. Representing models or actors is not part of what we do so please do not think we offer this service. However, at times and on a case by case basis, we may refer someone to an agency we think would be a good fit. The top agents in Miami are always looking at our participants and at times want to meet them. Often during camp days these local model agents stop by to see what is going on.
I see references to videos all over your website. Do I get to shoot a video as well?
Not everybody wants a video but if you do then we charge extra for that. See the test options and rates page for pricing.
How does the process work for signing up and coming to a weekend model camp or booking a test session?
First you will have to request a reservation from our BOOK YOUR SESSION page. Once we get the request we will send you all the information you will need for finalizing your attendance or test shoot along with payment details. You will also get the name of the hotel(s) we are working that offer our contacts special rates and other various information.
What if I change my mind last minute?
Scheduling a photo shoot like this is something you should really think about before you start the process. You should be 100% sure you want to do this. We do understand that sometimes really special circumstance and hardships come up and we may reschedule. All circumstances are considered on a case by case basis but last minute cancellations (within 7 days) are non refundable.
Am I a minor if I am 18 in Miami?
Yes and no. Yes you are a minor in that you are not allowed into nightclubs and bars to consume alcohol until you are 21. No you are not a minor when attending one of our model camps or test shoots. We define minors as those who are below 18 years of age.
How many people can I bring to the shoot?
None unless you are a minor then only one. Space is limited. If you are on a one on one test shoot then you can safely bring one persons with you.
What will the people I am traveling with do while I am shooting?
We can recommend many activities and tours that are cool. Sometimes we get discounted rates. Boating, biking, kayaking, snorkeling and scuba diving are a few activities. Hanging out on the beach is not a bad thing either.
What if there is bad weather?
We will have a plan B which would include a lot of studio work.
What should I bring to shoot in?
Once you are a confirmed participant we will have lots of information and hints we will pass along so you can prepare.
Will you provide anything to eat on shoot day?

Most calls are at 8AM sharp. Expect to finish by 6pm ore earlier depending on the camp or test option.
Who goes first?
We go with the first to arrive at the location and checks in. First come first served.
How can I use the pictures and videos?
You can use the photographs and videos for whatever you want to promote yourself for the rest of your life. You can make big prints and give them to your friends and family or anything else you want. You cannot sell or let others use the photographs or videos for any commercial purposes without our photographers permission.
