Tavin Model Search

TAVIN Boutique needs Models!

We are looking for girls to model great Boho Hip Clothing for our new Etsy store.

We need three girls to alternate for different shoots.

The models must be able to work for a few months & be preferably tall & willowy.

You will receive compensation in clothing & in digital photos along with being a part of a great new hip boutique. This is a great opportunity to get some great shots.

This also an exceptional way to promote yourself around town as these photos will get some great attention. This opportunity could lead to a paid modeling work in the future as well. We will need your services one day a week to start for a few hours- plus a small fitting before the shoot day. The photo shoot will be very casual & shot in a beautiful yurt & surrounding yard.

If would like to be a part of Tavin’s Model Search then here are some requirements.

You must live nearby Echo Park /Silverlake/ Downtown area & have own car.

You must email us some sample photos & include your measurements to the email address listed below.

If you are looking for a creative project please feel free to reply.

We look forward to hearing from you!
