Senior Representative Program

What is the Emily Z. Photography Senior Representative Program?

The Emily Z. Photography Senior Rep. Programs is a portrait program geared toward high school Seniors who wish to earn their Senior portraits in return for promoting Emily Z. Photography to their friends and family. Seniors will receive their portrait session free of charge, as well as participate in the group portrait session, and have exclusive invitations to program events. Participation in this program is granted by applying and being selected for the program. Participation is limited to between 2 and 4 representatives each high school within a 45 mile radius of Flint, Michigan. Students at other high schools may apply as well. The exact number of representatives will be under the discretion of Emily Zuwala, Owner.

Why should you/your student apply?

A student’s Senior year of high school is an exciting time in life. You’re applying for college, looking for a job, or preparing for military service in order to transition into the next phase of life. You are no longer a child, and are beginning to taste the freedom that young adulthood provides. My Senior Rep. Program is designed to enhance this special time in your life by helping you to capture beautiful portraits of yourself that display your interests and achievements that you and your family will cherish for years to come. It is also designed to help your friends achieve these same portraits. Oh, and who doesn’t want to add to the fun of their Senior year by attending exclusive events and hanging out with friends?

But, what do I/we get in return for helping promote your business?

In return for your help in promoting my business to your friends and family, you will get your portrait session free of charge (est. $450.00 value), with all the fully-edited digital images for you to download and keep, a copy sent to the school if desired for yearbook, and a set of digital images from the Group portrait session of our Senior Reps together. Additionally, when friends and family book a portrait session and mention that you referred them, you will earn points throughout the year toward rewards of all sorts (please see the list below). This is a total of over $1000.00 in free services and rewards in exchange for your help in promoting my business.

What happens if no one I refer schedules a portrait session?

Nothing. As long as you can honestly say that you tried to refer as many people as possible, then nothing happens. However, word-of-mouth referrals are generally the best form of advertising a small business can have. Referrals from happy clients are something I cannot pay for, and happy clients who refer their friends and family are worth their weight in gold. I intend to keep my Senior Representatives and their families as happy as possible so that you can honestly refer me, and if this is the case, I don’t think you have to worry about not having any referrals.
