Do you live in Joburg or Pretoria and:




Do Yoga or Pilates


Workout / Do Weights at Home?

I'm looking for YOU!

My website platform (Wix) have launched a really cool opportunity for the photographers and content creators that use their services.

They've created their own stock image library, and have opened calls for submissions.

This month, the theme is FITNESS

Deadline for shoots: SUNDAY 21ST JUNE 2020

Are you interested in taking part in a shoot? Here's what you need to know:

What is Stock Photography?

Stock photography is typically creative photography that is used in advertising and marketing. You come across stock images every day, in magazines and online.

Photographers submit their images and the library will pay the photographer.


Photographers either get paid only once someone purchases their images (royalties), or they get paid once off when the library accepts an image submission.

What does this mean for me as a model?

If you model for a stock photograph, you will need to sign a model release and contract with your photographer. A model release gives the photographer your permission to submit your image to the library. In the case of a minor under the age of 18 years, a parent or guardian is required to sign the model release. You would need to be comfortable with your image potentially appearing in an advert online or in print.

It isn't guaranteed that the photographer will earn any money from their images, therefore the model doesn't receive any royalties from the images sold.

Ok, so what's in it for me?

If you sign up with me as one of my models, I'm super transparent about the image submissions. You will be notified of the images I have submitted and whether or not the submission was successful. I worked at a stock library myself for many years (every heard of Getty Images, Gallo Images and iStock?) so I also understand what goes on behind the scenes.

There's no cost to you for taking part (other than maybe getting a bit sweaty - we are shooting fitness images after all!).

Plus, as a thank your for signing up, you have the option of choosing either:

A set of 5 unique images from the shoot for your own portfolio


A R1000 voucher that you can use towards a portrait shoot of your choice

Awesome, let's do this!

Go ahead and complete the contact form below and I'll be in touch ASAP to plan your session.

I'm excited to have you on board!
