I’m finishing up some final changes to my Senior Spokesmodel Application, and will hopefully have it posted online by Friday.  I know there are several of you anxiously awaiting it, so thank you for your patience! This year I will have an on-line application for you to submit and upload photos through, as well as a “rep only” area of my website for you to access.

For those of you not familiar with the Senior Spokesmodel program, it is basically a chance for incoming high school seniors at schools all over Portland and Clark County to earn free photo sessions and free portraits and prizes for referring their classmates.  I will be giving a lot more details with the launch of the application period later this week, so stay tuned.
