H.S. Senior Rep. program

Dashing Photography is ready for 2013 Seniors!

DP is looking for FUN seniors interested in becoming senior representatives. I am looking for current high school juniors who will be seniors in the fall of 2013 to help promote my business to their friends. I will choose one female and one male student from each local high school. (including: Lovelock, Fernley, Winnemucca, Fallon, Silver Stage, Battle Mtn.)

In order to be a senior rep, you must:
• Have great style, lots of personality and enjoy being in front of the camera.
• Be a current high school junior graduating in 2013.
• Live in and attend school in Northern Nevada.
• Be available to have one session completed before May 1st, 2012.
• Agree to tell your friends and classmates about Dashing Photography and share your senior portraits with them.
• Have your parents or legal guardians sign a model release form.
• Agree to represent ONLY Dashing Photography and use these images as your senior pictures.

As part of our senior rep program you will receive the following:

• Free photo session with up to 3 clothing changes. Photos will be completed in one session.
• The opportunity to earn print credit for every person they refer to DP for senior portraits after the first 5
• Personalized referral cards to give to friends and classmates with your name, your portrait, and our Business information to
hand out to friends
• Several of our favorite photos to share on social networking sites like Facebook, Myspace or Blogs (with our logo on them).
• A $100 gift card will be awarded to the representative with the highest number of photo business cards turned in by September 31,2012.

5+referrals = NO Session fee and Free Senior Package!

When your referrals book a paid session and bring in your Rep Card you will receive the above mentioned discounts according to the amount of referrals you bring to us. These referrals can include anyone who books the following sessions: Senior, Newborn, Family Portraits, Portraits, Weddings, etc.

You will receive your Rep Cards by May 15, 2012.

If accepted, you will be representing Dashing Photography and telling your friends about our Senior Sessions throughout your senior year. Be sure to let your junior friends know also!

The classmate(s) must present a referral card in order to be eligible. Your participation in the program will not only introduce you to a new way for cutting edge, personalized photography, but also a way to earn incentives toward your session for senior portraits at no cost.

Terms and conditions are listed below for all Senior Representatives. The first photo session must be completed by May 1st of the Junior Year and all additional sessions need to be scheduled by July 1st, 2012. Parents or legal guardians of the Senior Rep must sign a model release, allowing us to use your images for advertising purposes. A valid Senior Rep Referral Card must be presented by a referred student in order to receive any credits toward your free session. Credits will only be issued when a referred senior’s session is complete and all fees are paid in a timely manner by the referred senior. The program is first come, first serve, so act fast if you are interested.

Interested students should submit all information by Friday, March 24, 2012. Reps will be chosen in early April by DP. Reps will be contacted if chosen and also announced on the Blog and on Facebook. No more than two reps will be chosen from each school.
