Horse and Dog Photography Model Database Application

Is your horse or dog model material?

While everyone can admire a beautiful animal, looks arn't everything and sometimes the superstars I need are the ones with character, confidence with new people and situations, a great work ethic and willingness to please their handlers, perhaps special skills, tricks or in the case of dogs - a high level of obedience in particular with solid stays or off lead recalls.

I require a database of horse and dog photography models to call on for upcoming commercial jobs, editorial work and special projects, so if this sounds like something you might be interested in please read the information below and submit an application form for your horse or dog.

This is NOT a modelling agency, applications are for use by Michelle Wrighton Photography only.

Horse and dog talent criteria:

  • Must be located in Western Australia in the areas I service - Perth, Bunbury, south west, wheatbelt and Great Southern regions.
  • Any age, size and breed or mixed breed may apply as long as they are mentally and physically sound.
  • Must have good manners and not be aggressive to other animals or people.
  • No prior modelling experience required - preference for modelling jobs may be given to previous MWP clients depending on the needs of the project brief.
  • Weekday availability is desirable but not essential.

Submission of the application form signifies you, the owner, understands and agrees to the following:

  • These photo sessions are NOT the normal MWP private client experience.
  • Payment for modelling varies and may be vouchers, photographs (digital or prints) or horse/dog products depending on the project.
  • Model owners will be required to sign a model/property release and commercial use agreement.
  • Applicant details will be maintained indefinitely in a private database that is solely for use by Michelle Wrighton Photography.
  • Your email will be added to the MWP monthly email newsletter to ensure contact details are kept up to date.
  • Admission to the database does not guarantee selection for any future paid modelling or free photography.
  • When possible you will get to see the final photos from the session - this will depend on the individual project and licencing restrictions.
  • You must be willing and able to handle your horse or dog for the duration of the shoot if required.

Best completed on computer.  Some phones won't allow photo uploads which are essential to complete this form - no email submissions sorry.

Please submit ONE application form for each horse or dog you would like considered.
