Photo Sessions for 2012 are complete and closed out.
Currently accepting models for 2013 Photo Sessions.
How we work:
Everything is done via Facebook. "Click" here:
Boriken Warrior Studios is a two person operation. My wife tells me what to do and I do it. Simple and efficient. We are therefore small, compact and stress free.
1) Send us a friend Request. Keep in mind that this page is an annex to our main web site. It is MODELS ONLY.No friends, photographers family etc. Exceptions will be those who are directly related to the modeling community such as MUA's (Make Up Artists), Hair Stylists or those directly involved with Modeling Agencies.
2) The Facebook page is used to communicate News and articles of interest to models. It is also used to give updates on Boriken Warrior Studios as well as Casting Calls. If you are not a model, do not friend us. Thanks!
3) Once there, simply do nothing. You will get regular news and articles regarding the modeling community. No rants, politics, religion or cute cat pictures. If it is not of interest to you as a model, it does not get posted.
4) Casting calls will be released via general posts. These are few, maybe three per year. Notice that 2012 is already closed out. We will not be shooting again till 2013. Specific directions will be provided which will include a link so you can see the concept offered. Visuals and text will be provided for this purpose. If you like what you see and want to participate, then let us know. If not, then simply do nothing and wait for the next casting call to ring your bells.
5) We are easy to contact. I am Koa and you may contact me via MM Instant Message, Facebook Instant Message or Skype (BorikenWarrior).
6) Casting calls will be filled with a Primary and Secondary model. If the first model cannot make it, then the secondary is next up.
7) IMPORTANT: If you are not on the Boriken Warrior Studios Models page, you will not be considered for any photo sessions. No exceptions!
8) We currently only offer TF shoots but man, do we give the models the goodies. We are looking to one day offer paid sessions. When that will happen...?
9) Look thru this site, this is what we do. If you feel you are un-willing or un-able to pose in that state of undress, no problem. You are still invited and encouraged to join the Facebook page, even if it's for the modeling news and articles.
10) Well behaved guests are always welcome. We ask that you limit your guests to no more than three. Guests will be required to sign a "Participants Release Agreement" (sample on our web site under "modeling").
11) "Models Release" and "Participants Release Agreement" forms must be signed prior to session. Samples are available on our web site under the "Modeling" section.
12) REMINDER! You do not have to wait for a Casting Call to do a TF Photo Session with us. If you live in Puerto Rico or are here visiting and would like to set something up outside of a Casting Call, then let us know. You can bring up a concept or we can do it for you. 2012 closed out, sorry! Next year!
-Boriken Warrior Studios-
1)Models on our Facebook page are interested in the work we do. That means we can target our casting calls to only those who are interested and available instead of contacting models who are not.
2) We get to know our models personalities, needs and their sense of humour. Our models love to laugh!
-You, the model-
1) Our casting calls are directed towards you and others who are interested in working specifically with us.
2) You receive casting call notices immediately. No need to wait for them to show anywhere else and hope you see it. No more waiting and hoping to be contacted personally.
3) You do not have to respond to the casting call if not interested. Usually, a model is contacted by a photographer. Model has the option to reply or not. Do you? With us, you reply only if interested. If not, do nothing. This saves you the time and effort of responding if you are not interested.
4) You receive regular news and articles directly related to modeling. These include modeling, bodybuilding, fitness and nutrition. You will receive these on your regular Facebook feed, you need do nothing else. Just another benefit by joining our Facebook page.
5) Our Facebook page only has models and those who are directly involved in the modeling industry. A great way to interact with those with the same interests in modeling and the Taino Culture
A BIG FAT HAIRY "THANK YOU" to those who have already joined us! Your presence and trust is very much appreciated and valued. -Koa & Lilson-
Boriken Warrior Studios is located in Lares, Puerto Rico and is dedicated exclusively to the North American Taino Tribe of the island. Friend us on Facebook and request a model welcome packet (PDF) to familiarize yourself with us. We look forward to hearing from you soon!
