Since 1999, the Marketing Solutions Team has helped to art direct numerous hard cover Passion and Inspire International Stylebooks here in the Washington DC metropolitan area as well as across the United States.
You Can Be Internationally Published! Hair designers, haircolorists and makeup artists have traveled to these exclusive international photography sessions from across the USA to participate in these professional competitions, many of which have been hosted at the Graham Webb International Academy of Hair.
It is important for most hair designers and makeup artists to have their artistic creations published in this series of premier quality books, which are respected as representative of the best hair designs from over 40 countries across the globe. YOU have the unique opportunity to participate and to have your works published!
Nationally Respected Photographers: Tom Carson, Scott Bryant, Paul Rumohr and other internationally recognized specialists in hair, makeup and spa photography are always selected for these special sessions.
Total Image: You can register up to 1 to 6 models per shoot day. You must facilitate your own very attractive models, terrific haircuts, great haircolor, finished hairstyles, wardrobe and makeup artistry for a total image.
Publication Schedules & Additional PR Opportunities: Salons published will receive a courtesy copy of the stylebooks after each book comes out, which is usually at least 9 months after each photography session. When available, you will also receive the valuable outtake photographs to use for your own local marketing, advertising and PR projects. These stylebooks and photographs are distributed approximately 9 months after each professional photography session. The Marketing Solutions Team does not have any editing power, thus you are asked to work with the most attractive models available, while staying strictly within each book’s noted category.
Photography Competition Mailing Lists: We also now hold additional exclusive Passion Invitational Photography Sessions across America, inclusive of some in Illinois, Texas, Florida, New York and other cities – so be sure to contact us if you want to be on our Stylebook Invitation Mailing Lists.
