Preparing For Elite On The Beach

April 2, 2016

ELITE ON THE BEACH

On April 2, 2016, Miss K's Elite will be dance modeling for a beach photo-shoot. MKDB is training their performers for more opportunities. At MKDB we want our performers to be well rounded and flexible to all types of jobs in the industry.

MODELS HOW TO PREPARE FOR THE SHOOT

1. Exfoliate- Exfoliating takes off all dead skin and polishes it for a smooth finish.

At least one week to 2 days before the shoot, exfoliate your skin- head to toe. You can purchase Body and Face washes and scrubs that specialize in this,but there are some simple ingredients from home that will work too.

2. Moisturize

After you Exfoliate, you must moisturize your entire face and body. You do not want to appear flaky, ashy and or dry for the shoot.



3. Stretch

You must stretch extra for the shoot. Your body will be hit by water, sand and you will have to dance, leap, and position your body in multiple ways, so ensure that you stretch.

Starting adding minutes , at least a week before the shoot.


4. Tone

Each Elite member MUST start toning. You must be extra toned for this shoot. The Sun is your light. It does not matter your body type, each must tone. Push Ups, Planks, Lift weights.


5. Expect The Water To Be COLD. The weather may be chili.

When you see models in beach ads, most of the time, they were cold. You must understand this. You cannot waste time, get it in your head now, parents talk to your younger ones, they cannot complain, if you are to get in the water and leap , then that is what you have to do, on cue.


6. Rehearse Movement

You should at least once a week starting today, rehearse poses and looks in front of the mirror for this shoot. Although I will be directing it, I may need a few shots of you just moving with the water and the sand.


7.Prepare To Have Fun

This is a unique shoot and it shows the growth of MKDB, you must have fun, relax and LISTEN to me- Miss K at all times. You are to follow and listen closely and do it right the first time. If you have fun while listening, the fun will show in the photos!

Adult Performers /PARENTS and GRANDPARENTS HOW TO PREPARE FOR THE SHOOT

3. Prepare to Drive to Either Pismo, California or LA- Venice Beach. I have to wait on the photographer and weather. You must prepare for both cities. Of course in March, we will render the location. However, please prepare for both.


4. Start Planning Now- Do you need to send your child with me? Are you bringing family and friends, what all do you need to do to prepare? Are you going to drive the night before? The morning of? Think On These Things.
