We work with creatives who are highly skilled in their area of expertise and current with the latest fashion trends. Our Makeup Artists, Hair Stylists and Wardrobe Stylists are currently active in the industry and are extremely passionate about what they do. They take into consideration each Model’s best features and colourings, taking a holistic approach to enhancing their natural beauty while considering the short term and long term effect on their hair, nails and skin.

All of our Photographers are specifically selected and are who we consider to be some of the best in the Australian Fashion Industry. They all shoot regularly for magazines, advertising campaigns, catalogues, agencies, Model portfolios and more.
Photoshoot themes are created to produce the most impressive and well-constructed portfolio. All themes differ from previous courses and we tailor it to suit each Model to give them the best chance of getting their foot in the door with future and ongoing work.

Upon Completion

At the completion of the photo shoots we compile 1O of the most impressive photos (2 from every photo shoot) to create maximum impact when viewed by an agency or client. Each Model will receive these 10 completely edited digital photos from their photo-shoots in high resolution to use for promotion of themselves as Models, perhaps even to start a potential career. Models will also receive a certificate of completion.

It doesn’t stop there! Each Model will be personally mentored according to their individual needs and also scouted out for any Modeling work they may be suitable for – whether it be TV, Promotional, Runway or Photographic.

Perth Modeling Academy is affiliated with some of Australia’s and not to mention the Worlds top Modeling Agencies in which we are able to provide introductions, thus create the opportunity to be represented.

We are able to help you attain these applications and also throughout your journey.
