WOULD YOU LIKE TO BECOME OUR MODEL?
Milton Brown is a production studio, specializing in advertisement and stock photo sessions. You might have been invited to contact us, which means that we believe you would make a great model for our agency. You might have also responded to one of our ads. Last, but not least, you may be visiting us by accident and just be curious to keep on reading. Either way – please, feel invited…
WHAT ONE NEEDS TO KNOW ABOUT STOCK SESSIONS?
This type of session is done for the needs of photo banks (being distributed mainly in Germany, Great Britain and USA). Anyone who searches for photos to be used for advertisement purposes is entitled to skim such base and purchase the suitable photograph. The subject of a session will vary, from business to family lifestyle, from hikers in the mountains to students in a library, basically everything we find to be an interesting idea. The examples of sessions conducted by our studio may be found on our website, under Portfolio. Usually the session takes about 8 hours, therefore we advise that you ensure your own catering. In case of away-sessions longer than one day we assure transport and accommodation (hotel minimum 3*).
The model’s wages depend on their experience and the type of a session. The exact amount is being agreed upon individually, following the invitation of a model to participate in a certain project. The fee includes our rights to the sessions photographs. The settlement takes place on the day of the session, immediately after its completion, on the basis of the contract of commission.

If your application draws our interest you will receive an invitation for casting session. We try to organize them periodically in various cities of Poland. In case you will not be able to meet us at a given date please let us know about this and we will invite you for the next meeting. The screen tests are unpaid and take just a couple of minutes (3-4 minutes). Within this time you will get your chance to prove your naturalness in front of the camera and your ability to act some basic emotions.
Taken trial photographs will be placed in our model base. Before each session we choose from the base those of you who get an invitation in a planned session. We run 1-2 sessions a week, the average. It may happen that we will call you within a week with the information that we would like to invite you to our session. Sometimes we get back to our candidates after a month or two. Unfortunately, there is a risk we won’t call you at all…
BEFORE THE SESSION
Upon receiving our invitation, in a week preceding the session you may expect to hear from our stylist who will contact you to select the appropriate clothing. Please remember to have your ID on you, which will be necessary to sign necessary documents. In case you are underage, we will also need your parents’ consent for your participation in the session as well as an ID of one of them. Before the session we will sing a document confirming your consent for us to use your image, as well as a contract of commission. HERE you may find the contract templates that we use.
AFTER THE SESSION
We choose and edit the photographs taken. This may take up to 3 months. If you are interested in receiving the photographs to include them in your portfolio please let us know about this. We will share some of them with you. If the effects are satisfactory, you may expect to hear from us more often.
