The GCP Model team is a family! We get to know each other, form amazing friendships and are there for each other throughout your senior year! Being a part of the team gives you an unforgettable experience for your senior year!
Each year, I look for high school juniors to represent Gina Chandler Photography during their senior year of high school. As a member of the model team, you become part of a fun group who participate in photoshoots, events and community service projects.
Being a part of the team allows for bonding, meeting other seniors they may not normally meet, supporting one another, representing GCP in all our marketing, participate in fun photoshoots, travel together and be a part of something special during their senior year.
Not only do models receive photos throughout their senior year, but they also become part of the GCP family and make their senior year even more memorable.
Being a part of the GCP Model team means amazing stylized photo shoots throughout the year! All of the GCP Models get introductory headshots as well as several group concept shoots during your senior year! And there are bonus shoots as well that GCP Models can participate in!
In addition to the fun team shoots, each GCP Model receives their own individual senior photo session planned with her unique personality in mind!
Each year we come up with a charity to work with that may be near and dear to one or more than one of the models. It is a great way to give back to the community as a team.
Each model has the opportunity to win the annual $500 GCP Scholarship!
Travel with your GCP Model Team Family on fun group trips where we may also do styled shoots! The beach, the mountains, maybe even somewhere further...nothing beats traveling together to experience new things and bond!
Throughout the year, the GCP Models get together for coffee, pizza night, tailgate parties and more! We are always looking for ways to get together to create friendships that bond us together for a lifetime...and SO much more!
"Being a part of the model team allowed me to make new friends from different schools and really push myself out of my comfort zone. I’m normally a more introverted person at first but meeting these girls and having fun at shoots has caused my true personality to shine through! I’ve gained a new found confidence in myself and realized just how beautiful I truly am all thanks to Ms Gina."
"My experience with the team and Ms. Gina is amazing! I have made two new friends from the group and have gotten closer to the other girls :). I love the energy that the team and Ms. Gina bring to the table especially during the photoshoot and off. Ms. Gina treats all of us girls on the team as one of her own. I really like how she also treats us well at the end of every photoshoot! Another nice thing is that she is pretty quick with photo edits and publishing it to the team. I couldn't be more thankful with an amazing team and encouragement I’ve had!"
"Being a member of the model team is not only fun experiences and of course pictures, but it's creating friendships with girls I never thought I'd be around. It's coaxed me out of my shell and given me a close group of people who I really trust and love! Being on the team was a little nerve-wracking because I was worried about having a lack of experience, but overall with my friends helping me and learning from Gina on how to navigate it, it’s been a rewarding experience socially, physically, and mentally as its caused me to be more confident in myself too."
"When I 1st started, I didn't know what to expect. I was worried I didn't have enough experience or knowledge to do the job. I was scared of so many tiny things, but in the end none of them mattered. Because, when I finally got into it, I found an amazing supportive group of girls. I was able to be myself and have fun with my team. I think joining this group was a great decision not only because I got to make new friends and go on different adventures with them, but because they also helped me get over all of my tiny fears. This experience showed me that jumping into something new isn't so scary after all."

There is no set number from year to year. I base it on those I feel would be a good fit for my team. I wish I could take everyone but in order to give the members on the team the best experience I can't take everyone that applies.
In short, no! By being on the GCP Model Team you agree to use me for your senior photos. You will be a representative of my photography business so it doesn't make sense to have another photographer take your photos!
I look for kids that are kind, caring, outgoing, get along well with others, like to have fun and want to be a part of a team. I really want the team to be a supportive place for everyone, so I want models who can be supportive of one another, hype each other up and become a family.
Models receive several shoots throughout their senior year, hair and makeup for some of these shoots, individual senior photo shoot, an GCP Model swag bag, events and so much more!
GCP Models will be notified in person in a fun way! I love to surprise the team and my current team members may help deliver the news as well!
The search for my model team begins the winter of your junior year. I will make announcements on social media & the current team will also let people know that the search has begun! Be sure to follow @ginachandlerphoto on Instagram so you will know exactly when to apply or join the VIP list and find out first.
Senior sessions are $300 & need to be booked in order to be considered for the team. The senior model team is a separate fee of $100. This covers some of the fun things we do for each shoot. So, for just a little bit more, you’re getting to be a part of multiple exclusive group styled shoots throughout the year. If selected for the team, your team fee must be paid in FULL before April 1, 2023.
I schedule model shoots on Sundays if possible because most can make a Sunday shoot and it doesn't interfere with sports, work, etc. I also try to give two date options for most shoots and allow the team to vote on which works best. The only shoot that is required is the personal shoot. We try to get together about every 6 weeks.
