Model Development Programme

Five Week Course

MDP is the ideal first step in your modelling journey.

Our goal is to provide a safe, supportive environment to build
your confidence in your own unique beauty.

The photoshoots

The course is based around five nights of photoshoots. There are theory components, but the majority of each night is all about immersing you in the experience of modelling.

The photoshoots take place at River Road Studios, one of Perth's top commercial fashion studios. When you arrive, you'll have your makeup professionally done. Every night is a different photoshoot genre and a different style, and we shoot two different themes per night.

Every shoot, your look will be transformed with stylish outfits and fun, creative setups.

Becoming a skilled model is mainly about developing your confidence in front of the camera, and everything about MDP is the most supportive environment to make that happen. It's low pressure, everyone is friendly, and it's really fun.

Industry knowledge

Each night of the course incorporates a discussion section, where you'll gain invaluable tips and inside knowledge on how to:

We bring in experienced model mentors to share their experiences. You'll also make some great connections who can help you with advice and support beyond the course. We'll be using clothes from top Perth designers, which will help with your exposure as well.

A stunning portfolio

Every night of the course, we'll shoot two different themes, and you'll get two images from each one. We cover evening glamour, fitness, fashion editorial, creative hair and makeup and more. So, by the end of the course, you'll have an incredibly diverse portfolio of twenty professional images.

Your finished photos are provided to you within seven days of each shoot. You'll get all your images from the previous week at the start of each session.

Any time you want to apply for a modelling opportunity, you'll have something suitable to show off, plus your social media will show beyond doubt that you really know what you're doing.

A sense of self

We want you to realise that being beautiful isn't about changing yourself to fix all the things that aren't "right". It's not about hiding weaknesses; it's about discovering your strengths, and gaining confidence in letting them shine.

Our goal is for you to improve your personal confidence through modelling, in a way that will be an advantage to you in other areas of your life as well.

Getting Started

The course runs Wednesday and Thursday nights from 6PM-9PM, (you can choose between attending Wednesdays or Thursdays). Our currently available starting dates are Wednesday 13th March and Thursday 14th March - these courses run until the end of Term 1.

If you're unable to attend a particular session, you can just skip it, and do that unit the next time it comes around five weeks later.

The cost of the course is $990.00, with payment plans available. There are no hidden costs whatsoever, and no upselling - your 20 images (provided as high resolution files) are included in the cost.

We generally provide all the necessary clothes for the photoshoots, but occasionally ask you to bring some simple basics for certain shoots. There is no expectation for you to go shopping for any specific things, however.

Once you're ready to sign up, just fill in the application form below, and we'll contact you with payment information. A $300 deposit is required to commence, with the remainder due within three weeks of commencing the course.
