757 Senior Palooza is all about creating the fashion model experience for your high school senior portraits. You can go anywhere to get your picture taken but during 757 Senior Palooza, you are treated like a fashion model with 8 sets, a personal assistant, makeover, hairstylist and two professional photographers. At the end of your celebrated fashion shoot, you’re then escorted to a rocking dance party with over 200 high school seniors from around Hampton Roads.

Seniors Experience Supermodel Fashion Shoot and VIP Dance Party

Virginia Beach, Va. – 757 Senior Palooza is hosting a senior portrait supermodel fashion photoshoot, April 3, 2018, for 20 high school seniors and juniors, seeking more than the average portrait package, held from 7:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. at Triple R Ranch in Chesapeake, Va.

757 Senior Palooza is an opportunity for all Hampton Roads seniors and juniors to experience a professional photo shoot like a fashion supermodel. There will be two professional photographers, eight sets, up to six outfit changes, catering, and each model will have a personal assistant to help with clothing changes, updating their social media and getting them from set-to-set on time.

This first-time event celebrates the uniqueness of today’s high school students looking for something different than a typical school contracted portrait session. The organizer for this event, Ty Swartz, is pulling from his experience working in Hollywood managing sets for television and movies along with working the red carpet during the Oscars.

“Today’s high school students want more than the standard portrait session,” stated Ty Swartz, co-owner of 757 Senior Palooza, LLC. “We take a little Hollywood magic and add the lure of a high-end fashion shoot.”

Parents will love this event because they are getting an enormous value for their dollar. In the supermodel tradition, students will sign a contract that asks them to contribute eight hours to community service that 757 Senior Palooza is organizing. Supermodels will do four hours before their fashion shoot and then another four hours before their images are revealed.

The goal is to get to engage students in their community through service. If 757 Senior Palooza can get 20 supermodels to book portrait sessions, students will contribute 160 hours of service, and if they bring a friend or parent, then we can double that to 320 hours of service to our community.

“Everyone has a compelling story, and we are here to provide our supermodels with extraordinary images through creative artistry that will become a family legacy,” said Doug Arcos, owner of Douglas James Studio. “Hosting 757 Senior Palooza helps us create a unique senior portrait by designing a magazine fashion model experience currently not available in Hampton Roads.”
