What is the Senior Rep Program?

Seeking current Juniors (Class of 2022) that want memorable senior photos and an experience you won’t forget! Senior Reps get to work exclusively with Karen Chin Photography! Anyone can be a Senior Rep, I am looking for outgoing and enthusiastic individuals! It starts with your FREE senior session and the fun continues throughout your senior year. As a Rep you will get friends to book sessions with me and in return you earn prints, products, and gift cards!

Your session will be shot outdoors in March or April (at a location later decided) and takes about 1-2 hours. We work together on wardrobe, props, and posing to create images that you will LOVE showing off! 48 hours after your session we will virtually go through the gallery to choose an image for your senior rep cards. These cards will also be FREE and you’ll receive them by May 1st. They are the size of a business card and will contain your name, photo, and my contact information. You hand these cards out to other 2022 classmates, as well as share the social media post that highlights you being one of my reps! When you share these cards with your friends, or repost on social media, this is the time to hype up Karen Chin Photography! Talk about the experience and all the things you loved about our shoot together.

How do I get FREE stuff?

Class of 2022 seniors must mention your name when booking their session and complete payment for you to get credit (one referral name per booking).

What you can earn:

5 referrals - You get 5 prints (4x6, 5x7, 8x10) and an 8x10 Metal Print, and unlock digital gallery

10 referrals - Your 5 referral items PLUS, 16x20 Canvas wrap, OR 16x20 standout

15 referrals - Your 5 & 10 referral items PLUS, A $100 Visa Gift Card, OR a 10x10 Senior Album! [a $360 value]

Every 5 referrals after 15 - get another $100 Visa Gift Card, OR a 16x20 Canvas wrap, OR 16x20 standout, OR $200 in studio print credit!

The end of the senior season and deadline for referrals is September 1st, 2021 at midnight. *Seniors can schedule their session for a date later than September 1st, 2021, they just need to have payment and contract completed before September 1st, 2021 for it to count towards your number of referrals.*

How are REPs chosen?

A limited number of representatives will be chosen from each high school, so apply early. I am primarily looking at these high schools: Mundelein, Carmel Catholic, Libertyville, Vernon Hills, Lake Zurich, Stevenson, Grayslake Central, and Grayslake North. If you are from another high school in the area and feel passionate about working with me, let me know!

I am looking for outgoing individuals who are active on social media and excited to promote Karen Chin Photography in person and online. The deadline for applications is January 31st, 2021 at midnight. Once I have reviewed all of the applications I will start reaching out to have virtual interviews with selected candidates. After the virtual interviews, Reps will be selected and announced on social media by February 28th, 2021.

For the Parents

You must sign the contract with me before I book the session. It’s available online at the bottom of the student application form. I will need your and your child's signature. By entering this contest, you are permitting Karen Chin Photography to use your son’s/daughter’s first name and photograph on any of my marketing materials. You are confirming you have the authority to commit to this.
