Don Sheffler Photography, Providing a Classic Modeling Experience for the High School Senior.

Based in San Diego California, I am a graduate of Mt Carmel High School.  My oldest daugher graduated from RB High, and my son graduated from Mt Carmel.  My youngest daughter and Class of 2018 Model Team Member Gabby is currently a Sundevil.

The model program is simple: For about the price of a standard High School Senior Session, you are part of an exclusive team with access to monthly specialty shoots, test shoots, even travel shoots.  Extreme Sports Sessions, Dance, Themed, Water, Desert and Mountain, Urban, with shoots both in Studio and on Location.

The Team recruiting is quickly progressing; if you have interest, use the contact page to ask!  Or call 858-602-6518

Information Meetings will be held in February 2017.

The Model Team program costs about the same as the standard Senior Session and includes a large credit toward print purchases.  But the Model Team program is a full year+, beginning January 2017 and extending to graduation in 2018.  In addition to the full Senior Session summer 2017, Model Team members have multiple opportunities for local location shoots and studio sessions and headshots; specialty test sessions like themed costume or water portraits; opportunities to earn money and win gift cards to local retailers; all at no additional cost.  Also, Model team members interested in learning about the other side of the camera have opportunities to participate and learn about natural and artificial lighting, art direction, wardrobe and shooting.

There will be a few destination shoots planned, and only available to team members, which would incur some cost if your family would like to participate.  These vacation trip sessions will be limited to a couple or few families each, and for the 2017-2018 program year tentatively include Mono Lake area, Las Vegas/Death Valley, Utah and a couple relatively close by locations which would require an overnight like Palm Springs/Joshua Tree/Salton Sea/Glamis Sand Dunes.
