Seniors Experience Supermodel Fashion Shoot and VIP Dance Party

Virginia Beach, Va. – 757 Senior Palooza is hosting a supermodel fashion photoshoot, April 3, 2018, for 40 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.

The event is an opportunity for all Hampton Roads senior and juniors to experience a professional photo shoot like a fashion supermodel. There will be two professional photographers, eight sets, up to 6 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, movies along with his experience 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 40 supermodels to book portrait sessions, students will contribute 320 hours of service, and if they bring a friend or parent, then we can double that to 640 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 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."

757 Senior Palooza is hosting a Supermodel video contest,, allowing one winner, voted on by peers, to win a coveted fashion model photo shoot ($499 value) along with a $100 gift card, $50 makeover certificate and a 30 X 30 Canvas print for their wall. There is no cost to enter the contest.

The fashion shoot is open to 2018 high school seniors and incoming 2019 high school seniors.
