We are so proud that Jamil and Jade Gotcher are the authority in the Tulsa, Oklahoma area and region for starting a high fashion modeling career, the modern way! My daughter Jade Gotcher and I are the only Tulsa, Oklahoma area fashion photography team and runway modeling instructors that have firsthand international high fashion modeling career experience. Collectively we have modeled in every major fashion market, New York, Paris, Milan, London, Tokyo and even second tier markets like Dallas and Chicago for clients such as Neiman Marcus. Those aren't just bragging rights, it's exactly who you need to learn about the world of high fashion modeling from.
We are more than just a photography studio.
Professional models are not just pretty, they need modeling skills! Jamil's Father, John Shoemaker is a long time commercial photographer in Tulsa and would land Jamil modeling jobs by modeling for his commercial photoshoots. Those first modeling jobs made Jamil confident in her modeling skills and her professional photographer Dad's portfolio pictures got her signed with Elite Agency New York. Jamil and her daughter Jade realized they could utilize their expertise at modeling to help models in Tulsa become professional models by working with them. And by helping models become professional models we are also helping Tulsa and Oklahoma fashion retailers get the most options from their photoshoots.
Our pre-production, post production expertise and professional modeling industry Tulsa Fashion Photography team ensure smooth, professional and fun photoshoots.
Jamil Gotcher's background as a former international high fashion model has given her firsthand international, national, regional and local fashion modeling career experience to help models, even those that are agency signed with creating model portfolio images that give them the edge needed to succeed in modeling the way Jamil and her daughter Jade Gotcher did. Jamil has applied the same work ethic that produced an international modeling career into her photography career.
Hiring us to do your photography is an investment in you and your business. Modeling is not unlike any other business that requires an investment. Having professional images in your portfolio is the number one way to market yourself and edge out the competition.
The clients who hire professional models spend money to hire a professional model because they expect them to know how to model not just for their looks. They know people who are good looking but need a professional model who can keep moving for the photographer with minimal direction from the photographer. The better the model is at working in front of the camera the more options there will be to select for the advertisement or fashion editorial. When you work with Jamil and Jade you will progress as a model and feel more confident at photoshoots and auditions because you will know you have learned from the best in the area and have a portfolio that reflects that.
