A few years ago, Unforgettable Photos began the ROAD CREW program, a twist on the traditional “rep”programs used by most senior portrait studios. Always striving to be different from other photographers in the area, we wanted to offer a program that was beneficial to the studio AND the parents, yet interesting and fun for the seniors. We take a small group, and venture out to some obscure location that wouldn’t normally be a destination for a senior photo shoot. The seniors in the program get a unique session, and the studio gets some awesome shots to use for brochures, facebook, and website, along with entries for the competitions we enter every year. This year, some of the parents made a comment about getting in on the fun, and I thought it would be interesting to see how we could photograph the two groups differently in the same location. So the Senior VS parents challenge emerged!
First, we took the seniors out to our location, an auto salvage yard. I had a concept in mind to have the two groups pose around school buses in a head-to-head manner. I gave the kids some direction as to possibilities, but wanted them to make the shot their own. They had some great ideas! Then I took the parents out to the same location and gave them a little info on the concept. They ran with it, too! The seniors were talking smack about how the parents would never climb up on a bus top or do anything daring, and how they have youth on their side, so they think they will win with the most votes. The parents set out to prove them wrong. So now comes the time for the public to decide! Who rocked the junkyard better? Seniors or parents?
