2018 model application


Thank you for your interest in participating in the Kat Oswald Photography 2018 Model Search!  After returning from a 3-day intensive high school senior photography workshop in Texas, I'm inspired to update my teen/tween and high school senior marketing material with more editorial and modern work.  I'm in need of fresh faces and fun personalities!

This opportunity is directed to female middle school and high school students in the greater Albuquerque area. This will be a styled portrait session as an example of how my portrait sessions run. My portrait sessions typically run anywhere between an hour to two hours long, either early morning (sunrise) or late afternoon (sunset). Models will need to have 3-5 outfits, typically 2 casual and 2 -3 that are editorial & fashion-forward.  Sessions may take place in studio, outdoors, or a combination of both.


• Must be in Middle School or High School

• Parents must sign a model release

• Consent to a Before & After photo

• Consent to behind the scenes photos and video filming of your portrait session

• Must pay a non-refundable $200 reservation fee that can be applied to the optional purchase of photographs

• Must be able to shoot on a weekday: Monday – Thursday between 10 am – 6 pm

• Must be able to attend a pre-session consult & a viewing appointment in my studio on a weekday: Mon./Wed./Thurs. between 9 am – 1:30 pm



• Professional hair + make up

• 1-2 Hour photo shoot with Kat Oswald

• Reveal of 30+ proofs in studio (approximately 14 days after photo shoot)

•  10 digital files without watermarks

• A $200 gift voucher towards the purchase of images (can be digital files, prints, and/or products)



Will I get to see images before they’re used in the promotion?
Yes. After your shoot, we will schedule an appointment for you to return to the studio to view the proofs.

What if I want to purchase some of the photos?
That is up to you, you are not obligated to make a purchase. However, if you decide you would like to purchase one, a few, or ALL of the images, as a thank you, you receive $300 to spend towards images and/or products.


FILL OUT THE APPLICATION BELOW AND INCLUDE AN IMAGE(s) TO BE CONSIDERED. No considerations via email or other messaging. We also will not take nominations, interested applicant must apply direct. 

Please Note:  If you are selected to model and you do not show up for the shoot, the reservation fee is non-refundable. No other filming or photography during session will be permitted.

What you need to know 

Your photo session may take place in studio, outdoors, or a combination of the 2.  Typically we will begin in my studio, located right outside Old Town, and will end at a predetermined outdoor location.  A parent must attend the photo session.

Email info@katoswald.com with the subject "2018 Model Call" 

Attach a minimum of TWO photos that represent you. These do not need to be professional images, and no previous modeling experience is needed. So don't let the term "model" fool you.  I simply like to review applicant images to put together style and location ideas.  

Please forward this link to others that may be interested in this model call opportunity!!


Email Kat a 2-3 sentence review of your experience and feelings surrounding your portrait session.  Both parent and student are encouraged to submit reviews.


After your session with Kat Oswald Photography, be sure to share your favorite images and tag both Kat Oswald and Kat Oswald Photography.


If selected, you must sign a model release and photography contract. Anyone under the age of 18 must get permission from parent or legal guardian to apply and parent or legal guardian must be present during photo shoot. If selected and you are under the age of 18, parent or legal guardian must sign model release and contract. 

Model will be chosen by February 15th. The portrait session may take place in the months of February - May 2018, based on Kat's available dates.
