After an invited student creates a profile on Campus Man", we schedule a "practice" photo shoot. Photos from "practice shoots" are not published. This first shoot is a safe way for you to see what your body looks like on film. It is sort of an experiment. At the shoot, staff talk to you to discover his hobbies, interests and suggest a theme for your final photo shoot, as well as ideas for videos you can make on your own.
After the shoot, you receive copies of the practice photos and can tell us which poses you like and do not like. Every photo shoot produces good and rejected poses.
Producers phone you weeks later to propose 1-3 themes for your final photo. These themes are called "storyboards."
What is a Storyboard?
Storyboards list the location, props needed, what you should wear and how your body will be posed.
Most storyboards have an athletic or collegiate theme.
You can choose one of our storyboards or help think of ideas for your photo shoot by asking friends what makes you special. Instead of concentrating on what poses you will not do, concentrate on on what you are willing to do.
After you choose a storyboard, a final shoot is scheduled and you have time to prepare.
After your final shoot, the photographer chooses 8-10 of the "best" choices from the shoot. While several hundred photos may be created during a photo shoot, you should expect that only a few excellent quality photos to catch the eye. He sends these best choices to you. Although you do not select the final photo to be published in the calendar, you can tell the photographer which photos you like best.
Considering your choices, the producers choose the photo published in the calendar.
This process has resulted in many very happy students who want to sell all their calendars - because they love their photos!
