This could be for you!


Ambassadors love the service and photography we provide and actively promote Brian Balloon Photography throughout the year to their colleagues, family and friends. By collaborating with Brian Balloon Photography, you get to showcase your talent and skills as you perform and improve throughout the year, build your portfolio with fun, beautiful, creative and professional photos (and now video) and build relationships!


What do we require of an ambassador?


Ambassadors are chosen through a very selective process. If you are a dance ambassador, we require that you are an active dancer of a dance company, that you are in good standing, and that you extend your time, skills and talent to allow us to promote you through photos and video and be available as a dance model for creative photoshoots throughout the year as requested. We require that you promote Brian Balloon Photography and the other dancers in the group, because when we promote each other, we all win!


Note: If you are under 18, you must have written parent/guardian approval.



FAQs


When may I apply to be an ambassador?

We generally will open the Ambassadorship twice a year to the public. First in October, then mid-year in April. However, new Ambassadors may be allowed to join throughout the year if referred by a team member or dance teacher for consideration, depending on available slots.


How long will I be an ambassador?

We ask that you be an ambassador for one year from acceptance into the ambassadorship


Can I shoot with other photographers too, even though I'm an ambassador for you?

Yes. Shooting with different photographers encourages different perspectives, freedom and creativity, which is what art is about! There may also be times when I am unable to accommodate a photoshoot (such as illness or a family vacation). However, with that being said, as an Ambassador, we request that you higher prioritize posting and promoting shoots from Brian Balloon Photography in your IG feed and social media.


Do I need to post images?

We require that you follow @brianballoondance, add us to your IG bio and post final media, without editing them or adding filters, from your photoshoots, within a week of receipt, on your Instagram (and other social media if applicable).


What is the cost of the ambassador program?

The cost for the ambassadorship is $400 per person and covers your in-studio session, outdoor sessions, photography and videography, group outings, our camera equipment usage and maintenance, business taxes we pay, dance wear apparel purchase, investment in our brand to create more opportunities like this, and time involved in photo editing and marketing of you on social media throughout your year as an Ambassador.


Whereas one two-hour studio photoshoot would normally cost you at least $300 plus individual photo pricing, you are paying $400 for at least one shared in-studio session, one outdoor session, one group outing, apparel, photo/video editing and marketing for the year. You will likely be given the option to also do other creative photoshoots throughout the year without additional cost. This is a great investment in your portfolio as a dancer! Plus, you can get discounts for people you refer who book with Brian Balloon Photography!


Can I Recruit OtherS?

Absolutely! We hope you will recruit other dancers to apply to become ambassadors or book sessions too! There are discounts for you for booked referrals!


Do I Need to Be Flexible Like in a lot of your dance pictures?

No. Dancers are known for many aspects, including dedication, technique, physique, lines, and expressiveness, in addition to flexibility. While flexibility is helpful and important, dancers can be chosen because they excel in many of the other aspects. Your social media profile, among other factors above, will be used in the evaluation process.


Is there an age limit? Is there a type of dance you're looking for?

Dancers ages 10 and higher are encouraged to apply, though some exceptions may be made for exceptional maturity and skill level. Brian Balloon Photography is searching for primarily ballet, urban and acro dancers.


WHAT IF I PAY AND THEN DECIDE THIS ISN'T FOR ME


That's okay! Just let me know within a week after the application due date, and you will be removed as an ambassador and receive a full refund. After the first week, however, as a general rule, no refunds will be given, particularly if your photoshoots have begun.
