Photoshoots

Our graduates are invited to attend photoshoots across various locations in Scotland, however if any students would like to assist or gather content for their own social media please get in touch.
If any students are anxious about attending their first shoot or aren’t comfortable applying makeup to models just yet, we welcome you to come along and work behind the scenes to boost your confidence.

Rachael will send out regular emails announcing upcoming dates for photoshoots, alternatively click here for our calendar, dates will be added and updated monthly.
