Oluanai is looking to partner with Montana's top models. Model's need quality content and photographers need promotional help. Together Oluanai would like to make a formal partnership. We believe you're a premier model in Montana and if you're willing to represent us, we're wiling to return the favor with quality content below our studio cost.
what is oluanai Elite?
Oluanai Elite is a team of models that help promote Oluanai in exchange for discounted shoots and promotional opportunities. The goal of Oluanai is simple to make the Oluanai Elite Models to be the most recognizable models in Montana. This is the third year we've ran the team and we try to improve it every year. This year we're going to focus on promoting our models through modeling events and shows put on by Oluanai, national publications, and brand ambassadorships.
“Our mission is to make the Oluanai Elite team the most recognizable models in Montana.”
It takes two to tango
Of course, the models who get the most out of their time with Oluanai are the ones who are the most driven and take advantage. Oluanai is by no means, a king-maker. We cannot make you a super model, but we can commit to doing as much as we can to support you by giving you unique opportunities that no other photographer in Montana can offer as we have a history of publications, we have unique platforms to promote our models like interviews, commercial gigs, and physical galleries.
- Below cost shooting with Oluanai up to 4 shoots at $350/session including hair and makeup, 1 print and 15 edited images. (that's about 50% off our shoots)
- Preference for promotional gigs: you're on the top of the list when Oluanai shoots for publications (e.g. Billings Lifestyle).
- Preference for ambassadorships: when we're asked to photograph product for a business Oluanai Elite models will be the first ones offered to shoot and represent those brands.

What this doesn't mean
- Oluanai Elite is not an agency.
- This is not a job.

What this does mean
- You make us look good, we make you look good
- You promote us, we give you discounted shoots
- You publications, modeling experience, networking and we get model reps
So what's the goal of all this?
Simply put, we want to elevate our Oluanai Elite models to be the most recognizable and sought out models in Montana. We want to promote, and elevate you and show off Oluanai photography to the entire state and region. With you representing us, the more elevate you, the more we elevate ourselves. Even if you shoot with other photographers, we want to promote you as you represent us. Simply put, we want to support you as you support us and we want to go all the way to the top.
So, are you in?
If you're interested we want to know about you. The best way to get our attention is by tagging #oluanai_elite on Instagram or tagging @oluanai on facebook. You can also send us your photos to firstname.lastname@example.org or fill out this form.
How do the shoots work
Schedule your shoots with Kamara, you can shoot with Oluanai as much as once a month. When you schedule your shoot you'll pay the $350 when you schedule the shoot not on the day of. For each shoot you get 15 images edited within 2 weeks.
Can I shoot for Celestiales?
Yes, models who are 18+ can shoot for Celestiales. Maybe we'll do a "#CelestialesAngel" thing :)
What if I can't make the group shot or VIP Event?
We'll do our best to pick dates that are fair to everyone, but yeah it's a requirment because we want to elevate the team as a single model unit. Just like Victoria's Secret has their Angels, we want Oluanai Elite to be the most prominent models in the state.
What if I live somewhere else?
That's fine. If you can make it to the shoots and promote us where you are we would love to have a bigger reach!
What if i change my mind later?
You can quit whenever you want.
