What is being judged?
The main thing being judged in the contest is the ability of the contestant to be strong in front of the camera. The photograph is not being judged on its merit, but the entire focus is on the model.
Judges will look for:
– Camera presence
– Outfit choices that show a sense of style, personality and suit the model
Read what past model clients had to say about their photo shoot experience:
“John is so much fun and easy to work with. He made me feel comfortable in front of the camera and I can’t wait to work with him again! We laughed and time flew by. I’m really happy with the pictures they turned out beautiful. the whole experience really boosted my confidence and I’m so happy I had the opportunity to do it! See you soon John! ”
“Though modelling has always been a hobby of mine, in early 2013 it became something I wanted to take more seriously. Entering the Ontario preliminary for Miss Teenage Canada last minute, I needed a local photographer and found John online and took a chance. Immediately I fell in love with the way he made me perform in front of the camera and the images he produced. I have since shot with John many times and he has truly made me more confident in my abilities as a model as well as provided me with a variety of images I am able to use at professional castings. I look forward to each photo session with John knowing his creativity is endless and I will end up with a different, but fabulous, product every time. Thank you John for amazing experiences and equally amazing photos!”

Here is what some of the moms had to say about their daughters’ Modelling Sessions with our studio:
“As a mother of a young lady – the idea of “modelling portfolio” can seem a scary thought, however booking the session with John – it has been one of the most positive experiences I could recommend to anyone! not only do we have freaking awesome pictures capturing my daughter during this stage of her life,,, it provided a great boost of confidence for her! One of the most wonderful surprises is the amount of conversations my daughter and I have had since the photo shoot! what an awesome bonding experience. How many times I have heard my daughter say to me.. “big arse smile” – and then she laughs out loud! John it is because of your ability to connect with people – your personality – kindness – patience – that the experience was so spectacular! ( not to mention your kick butt talent of photography) This is one of those times, that we will forever have both in print and memory, time spent with my teenager that I will be forever grateful.. I encourage more parents to book a photo session with John… it was so cool… – I will not lie.. during the photo session – in the blink of an eye I started to cry – because I was able to see my daughter as yes my little girl, but to actually look at her and see past that.. that in fact she was growing into a young lady- and during the shoot I could see her confidence and courage come out…truly one of the best times as a mom.. This was one of the best gift ideas! forever grateful to John and his power behind the lens to capture such beautiful images for us to treasure!
NOW if you are reading this and want to do something cool and different BOOK A SESSION with John! seriously awesome!! – with warmest thanks and a great big high five!!!”

“My daughter’s first modelling experience was with John Wills. From the minute we showed up on site to the end of the session John was very professional with my daughter, yet so great at directing her and making suggestions on clothes and accessories that he left her at ease, which removed the nerves and made the entire experience very memorable and rewarding. The shots that he was able to extract from a young lady with no experience were outstanding and breathtaking. I highly recommend John to any young ladies for any modelling portfolios or prints as you will be amazed at how comfortable, relaxed and impressed you will be with his work”
