About Model Workshop
The model workshop is a 4 hour in-person intensive class for aspiring models of all experience levels. A workshop is currently held each season at the studio.
CES directors give models a comprehensive overview of local and international industry standards then move into breakout sessions for hands on work which provide 1-on-1 coaching regarding how to apply this information to your individual goals as a model.
Models are required to wear aN all black, tight "casting" outfit to have digitals photographed.
Models of all height, weight, gender, genre, skill and interest levels are welcome at the CES workshop. Workshop directors will meet you where you are and tailor the information to your modeling goals.
