Lux Photo Studio
Brand Ambassador Program
Thank you for your interest in being a Lux Photo Brand Ambassador! We are a husband and wife photographer team in North East Colorado Springs. Together we started out doing web and print design, but it quickly evolved when client’s started asking for professional photography and videography for their web design packages. Now we run two businesses- a graphic design studio, and a professional photography studio. In order to spread brand awareness about our photo studio, we offer our COMPLETELY FREE Instagram Brand Ambassador Program. What are the benefits to being an ambassador? Check out our requirements below:
Your contract will only require your participation for 3 months.
You may COLLABORATE with other photographers as you wish as long as it does not interfere with our schedule.
You may NOT be a Brand Ambassador for another photographer. We ask that you wait until our 3 month contract is over.
Applications are officially closed!
Contracts will be valid from May 10th to August 10th!
Thank you to everyone who applied!
What You Get
You will receive 2 free photo shoots a month for 3 consecutive months. These will range from a variety of styles and concepts. Locations will range from both in-studio and outdoors. All 6 of your photo sessions will be immediately scheduled after your acceptance as a brand ambassador.
Each session will last 1-2 hours. From each session, you will get 5 magazine-quality hand-edited photos to post on social media. That’s 10 free images a month! We don’t batch process images like most photographers. Hand-editing takes time, skill, and education.
If you decide you want more than 5 images, you’ll receive a special V.I.P. only discount for $15 an edit (originally $35 per edit)!!!
You’ll get a special promo code that your friends and family may use for 25% off their session fee!
For every person that uses your promo code to book, you’ll receive a FREE 11x14 scratch-resistant metal print of your choice!
You will receive your print credit once 100% of the session has been paid for. Does not apply to 30 minute mini-sessions.
You will also receive a special discount on canvases, metal prints and albums.
All We Ask in Exchange
You will be required to follow our Instagram account: @luxportraitstudio
You will be required to post our photos a minimum of 4 times a month on Instagram and properly tag our account @luxportraitstudio.
You will be required to post a minimum of 4 Instagram stories each month either showing behind-the-scenes, promoting a picture, or advertising a giveaway. Proper credit must go to @luxportraitstudio. These stories may be reposts from our story as well.
You will be required for the entire 3 month engagement to change your Instagram bio to include “Ambassador: @luxportraitstudio” or “Amb: @luxportraitstudio”. Should your account ever be found without this, your Brand Ambassador status may be forfeit.
Please note that you may NOT be a Brand Ambassador for another photographer. However, you may be a Brand Ambassador or represent any noncompeting brands. This does not restrict you from collaborating with other photographers. You may participate in other photo shoots as long as it does not interfere with our schedule!
If an Instagram feature account reposts our photos, PLEASE tag us. All we ask for is proper photo credit. Taking someone’s photo without consent isn’t just bad ethics, it’s copyright infringement. We spend time, money and effort into learning lighting, posing and editing for years. These are our photos that we worked really hard for!
You may be asked to participate in Lux Photo workshops. These workshops will be geared towards photographers who want to learn more about our style of photography and do some portfolio building. This is completely optional but you will be compensated for your time.
What We’re Looking For
We are looking for 6 dancers, gymnasts, cheerleaders, models, and boudoir models to make up our Brand Ambassador Team.
We are accepting all ages, genders, and skill levels.
Boudoir models MUST be 18+ yrs old.
You must have an Instagram account that is public. Private accounts will not be considered. This program is about brand awareness and we want to reach a large audience.
Looking for models, dancers, gymnasts, cheerleaders, and boudoir models that are willing to travel to photo shoot locations whether it’s our studio in Colorado Springs or the Flatirons in Boulder, Colorado. We will never ask something unreasonable!
Need people who are committed to being a part of this ambassador group. Willing to share special promotions or stories promoting us as a brand.
We reserve the right to terminate any Brand Ambassador found in violation of our terms.
Any client found in violation will forfeit their ambassador status, scheduled sessions, and free photos.
Ambassador Application Form:
IF YOU ARE UNDER 18, A PARENT OR GUARDIAN MUST FILL OUT THE FORM.
Applications are officially closed!
Thank you everyone that applied!
The next round of brand ambassador applications will open August 10th.
Brand Ambassador Faq
CAN I BE AN AMBASSADOR FOR ANOTHER BRAND?
Of course! We just ask that we are the only photographer ambassador/model team you are on. You are allowed to participate in photo shoots with other photographers as long as it does not interfere with our schedule!
DOES EACH SESSION HAVE A CONCEPT?
We may not necessarily have a concept for each and every single session. Colorado Springs and Denver has some great mountain ranges, valleys, and landmarks that we would love to utilize for normal portrait and dance pictures. We also have our studio where we may test new light setups or backdrops.
DO YOU TRAVEL?
Maybe one day! If we ever do, we will announce it on our Instagram @luxportraitstudio
DO I HAVE TO LIVE NEAR COLORADO SPRINGS TO APPLY?
No! You don’t even have to live in the state! You just have to be willing to travel to Colorado Springs if you’re requested. That’s where our photography studio is located. Outdoor locations will most likely be near Colorado Springs or Denver.
WILL THESE BE INDIVIDUAL OR GROUP SESSIONS?
We may do one or two group sessions and the rest will be individual sessions. Ideally, we really would like to expand our portfolio of multiple models/dancers/gymnasts/cheerleaders!
*Group sessions do not apply to boudoir models.
CAN I APPLY AGAIN IN THREE MONTHS?
Absolutely! We encourage everyone to reapply whether you were accepted previously or not! Please keep in mind that our terms may change between each recruitment period.
HOW LONG WILL IT TAKE TO RECEIVE THE PHOTOS FROM MY SESSION?
It could take up to 2-3 weeks to receive your edits. We try to have a fast turnaround and all the photos we take are edited in order. A rush fee is available if you require edits faster!
DO I HAVE TO PARTICIPATE IN THE WORKSHOPS?
Absolutely not! It’s completely optional. It will be an hourly paid position for any brand ambassador that is willing to participate.
Applies to all models.
ARE WE ABLE TO RESCHEDULE?
We want all 6 of your photo sessions immediately scheduled with a date, time, and location so you are guaranteed your 6 photo shoots. They will be spread out for your entire 3 month ambassadorship- 2 each month. If you need to reschedule one or two at a later date, that is acceptable. Rescheduling will be subject to availability. Please note that rescheduling may cause you to not receive all your intended sessions.
WHAT CAN I DO TO PREPARE FOR THE PHOTO SHOOT?
We ask that you come with hair and makeup done. If you require hair and makeup services, they are available for an extra fee.
Please wear loose fitting clothes to your session- leggings and other tight fitting apparel leave unsightly lines in skin that require extra steps to edit in Photoshop.
Dancers/Gymnasts/Cheerleaders should prepare the day before their shoot by practicing and remembering poses they are comfortable doing. 15-30 poses would be perfect for a 1 hour shoot. This way we won’t spend 5 minutes between poses finding Instagram inspiration.
And most importantly, get your beauty sleep!
