Why is it 2500$?
Over half of the amount is to cover the cost of your travel and hotel. The remaining balance goes towards your photo shoots, to pay for the makeup artist, the assistant and of course the photographer. You are actually paying for the cost of one shoot but getting 3, and in paradise no less. This results in thousands of photos for you portfolio and social media. On the last trip over 17,000 photos were taken of just 10 models. Also keep in mind all the extras that are included such as group shoots, submission of your photos to magazines, behind the scenes videos and a ton of social media promotion!

What are the pictures for?
The photos are for you, your portfolio and if you agree, to publish in upcoming summer issues of fashion and swim magazines.

How many photos do I get?
You get all your photos in high enough quality for social media. These images are all filtered and color corrected. You get the via DropBox™ one week after we return. You also get 10 professionally retouched photos in high resolution. This is magazine quality retouching. Want more retouched photos? No problem, they are only 25$ each. 

I'm part of a Modelling Agency, can I still participate?
Yes! This project is exactly for you to go get those great swimwear clients you've been wanting. Think of it as a "Agency Test" except that it's in paradise instead of some cold studio. It is not a contest and it is not for a specific brand, therefore it's cleared by most agencies rules.

Where will my photos be published?
Your photos will be used by Anthony Turano for his personal portfolio and self promotion. Some photos may be submitted to various magazines for publication, but only with your authorization and prior knowledge. Your images will appear on social media to over 145K viewers. You will also be featured in a behind the scenes video which will be published on Anthony Turano's YouTube Channel. All photo copyrights remain with Anthony Turano in perpetuity, however the models and their representatives have full licence to use the images in any way for self promotion.

Can I get a personal sponsor?
Yes of course, if you would like to get a swimwear or clothing company to give you products or any other type of sponsorship you are more than welcome to do so, heck some will even pay your trip. However, they are only allowed to use the photos on social media. If they would like to use the photos for print, website or direct advertising they must contact Anthony Turano to find out the fees. If you are in a modelling agency we recommend you discuss any sponsorships with them prior to making any commitments. Anthony Turano is not responsible for any personal sponsorships you may have.

Do I have to participate in everything?
Not at all, your are free to do what you like with your week. We create a shooting schedule about a week prior to leaving, the schedule insures that everyone gets the same amount of time, however if you choose to skip a day to do an excursion you may choose to do so, however the shoot you missed will not be done in double on another day. All group events, lunches and dinners are optional. If you miss a shoot due to illness, sunburn etc, you are allowed 1 double shoot day. We shoot approximately 3 looks per shoot for a total of 9 looks, sometimes more if there is time.

Can I bring my significant other?
No. Not everyone will be able to bring someone with them and we feel that its best and fair for the overall atmosphere of the experience that this remains a photo shoot trip.
