Freelance Photographer- PAID
I handle public relations for Brillare Hairdressing Academy, and we are looking for photography students to take fashion/editorial style portraits of the cosmetology program student’s hair and make up work. The photos would be used to enter hairstyle competitions.

The looks are usually dramatic high fashion looks, so the photographer would have some creative license to help the Brillare student achieve a bold look with lighting, backdrop, etc.

Brillare could provide a small project fee to the photographer. The model releases would allow the photographer to use the photos in their portfolio, and the Brillare students would want a digital image to use in their portfolio as well.
