Toledo Portrait Photographer » Beautiful Contemporary Portrait Photography in Toledo, Northwest Ohio and Southeast Michigan / Portrait Photographer

Senior Models and Reps


Applications for the 2017 MCP Model Team are now being accepted.

The search is on and this year is going to be the best year yet!


To help us kick the class of 2017 senior portrait season off we are looking for current high school juniors from all over Northwest Ohio and Southeast Michigan to work with MCP throughout their senior year.

2017 Seniors – girls and guys too – who are energetic, fun, outgoing, love getting in front of the camera, want a custom senior portrait experience & know they definitely want to work with MCP to create one of a kind images for their senior portraits – model or not. If this sounds like you –  definitely fill out the application! You may just get your chance to be the face of Michelle Chernock Photography during your senior year.


If you love what we do and can’t wait imagine going anywhere else for your senior pictures, then this program is definitely for you.

When you become a MCP Model you’ll get to kick off your senior year with an exclusive MCP Model Mini Session! You won’t have to wait until your senior session to get the opportunity to get in front of the camera.

Later in the year you’ll have the opportunity to be a part of larger, stylized group shoot – and you’ll get your chance to help plan it too!

So you can get your model on this spring and then get to do it again – even bigger and better – during your full senior session later in the year.

If that’s not enough camera time for you, our models are always at the very top of the call list when the we are looking for talent for editorial sessions and other projects that come up throughout the year too!

Perks include rewards like gift cards & print credits from our Studio Grab Box, model team nights at the studio, and the editorial sessions too.

From the time you sign your model contract, you’ll have the opportunity to earn studio print credits that can be used toward purchasing your senior portraits just by sending your friends our way – but only if you want to. There are no referral requirements in order to be a MCP Model. Each model is required to sign a session contract and pay their senior session fee at the time they sign their model contract. Because you’re a paid senior client you will be under no obligation to earn your session or refer any one to us at all – unless you want to. Our goal is to create beautiful images and an experience that you can’t help but talk about. So, for those referrals you do send our way you’ll be rewarded with generous print credits to use toward your portraits at your Image Reveal and Ordering Session.


Sound good so far? Here’s what you’ll need to do next…


  • Talk with your parents about it before you apply – make sure they’re on board too

  • Submit your application

  • Check your inbox – we will be sending all applicants more info after the application closes – around April 18th

  • Attend one of the MCP Model Information meetings – it’s mandatory and don’t forget at least one of your parents must come with you to the meeting

The application will close May 18th – so don’t wait to apply & be sure to tell your friends too.

Be sure to fill it out completely all the way through to the submit button – after you’ve finished and reviewed your answers!


More important things for you to know:

*Space on our class of 2017 model team is limited & it’s important that you know not every junior that applies for the program will receive an invitation to sign up…

Our models represent us, the studio, & the MCP brand to the world.  Finding a select few teens to represent us in a way that we are proud of is incredibly important to us.

MCP’s models are selected based on personality, character, sense of fun, presence in front of the camera, and excitement for working with Michelle for their senior portraits. Modeling experience and physical appearance are not factors in the decision process.

The connection you and I feel when we get the chance to sit down and talk is definitely a huge factor – you know how it is when you meet some one who just gets you, I’m sure – well that’s definitely what we are looking for this year.


Thank you very much for your interest, but the Application is now closed.

Contact the studio for more information about our Senior Sessions.

Submitting an application does not obligate you to commit to being on the 2017 Model Team, it simply commits you and a parent/guardian to sitting down with Michelle for a short meeting to go over the details. After the Model Meeting, you and your parents will have the opportunity to talk about it and decide if the 2017 Model team is a good fit for you & your family.  You are under no obligation to participate until the contract is signed.
