CATWALK CLASS

Our vision as an agency is to equip models with the necessary skills and knowledge to ensure they can compete favorably with models anywhere in the world. 

All models signed by Velour Model Management undergo, 6 moths of catwalk training each year. 
Unfortunately, we cannot sign every model in Kenya, hence, we open our doors to aspiring models who wish to get the necessary training to start their modelling journey.

Our training takes place in the following months: 
March to May- Session 1
August to October- Session 2

We train once every week, Sunday afternoons, from 2pm to 5pm 

Everyone who registers for catwalk training, gets a FREE polaroid photoshoot session, to help them start building their portfolios and booking work. They also get full access to our Master Classes throughout the year.

PAGEANT COACHING

Beauty pageants have for a long time been the launching pad for many models. Pageantry requires a totally different set of skills, not just catwalk, but communication, personality and artistic talent etc.

It is important to have an understanding about how the pageantry industry works and learn how to make the most of the opportunity and title. We prepare you, not just for the competition, but also for the crown. You also get to interact first hand with some of the queens who have represented Kenya in different competitions 

Our pageantry class takes place in the month of July, for 3 weeks (21 days), every day for 6 hours per day.

POLAROID PHOTOSHOOT

Every model, whether beginner or top model must have a good set of polaroid images, updated as often as required.
Polaroid images are what a model presents to an agency, to get scouted, and these are the images that agencies use to book work for their models

We can guarantee, that we do not send selfies  or over edited images to our clients 

A good set of polaroid images especially for the Kenyan market, should be taken in studio, in plain fitting clothes. In as much as polaroid shoots are simple, they give models an opportunity to try out different poses and learn a few photography tricks  and tips in the process. 

We schedule polaroid photoshoots twice every year, in February/March and July/August, and these sessions are open to models who are not signed by the agency, but want to start building their books. 

To receive the polaroid photoshoot schedule for this year, send an email to academy@velourmodels.com
