My show has been broadcast on two television stations. I produce the most watched online fishing show in the State of Ohio for 5 years straight thanks to God, great fishing and some awesome show spokes models. I'm a graduate of The Ohio State University and I've been a director of photography and show producer for about 6 years. College media students intern with me from time to time to gain experience using professional camcorders from our local College here in Columbus, Ohio. Even had a spokes model complete her college coursework by interning as a spokes model on my show. Spokes models aren't just pretty, they are smart too. I personally believe that most spokes models can easily be models but, most models can't be spokes models. It's cool because when the models fall on their faces, flub up all their lines and admit they can't do it, I let them cry a little bit, I pick them back up, dust them off and show them how to knock down the lines like the big girls. I tell them listen and learn We ain't snappin' photos here (no offense to anybody).
I've worked with spokes models who were students and graduates in majors like journalism and theater from local Universities and Colleges like The Ohio State University, Kent State, Ohio University, Capital, Otterbein, Columbus State and The Ohio School for Broadcasting. I've had a Playboy Model on my show and even a couple who work at news stations now. I've produced online commercials for Yellowpages.com for Plastic Surgeons, Dentist and Lawyers around the State of Ohio. I've done video projects through my fishing show for The U.S. Forest Service, The City of Fairfield, Ohio and The Ohio State University. I've produced some local television commercials as well.
I've been part of the prestigious Youtube Partnership program. (Those are the people who get paid for posting videos to Youtube). I work with many show sponsors that help make my show possible from local sponsors like R&R Sports to Car Dealerships like Performance Chrysler Jeep Dodge to National companies like the Sportsman's Warehouse. They love to have beautiful show spokes models promote their products and services during the video shoots we do.
Our spokes model spots have always been paid! Our show is local so pay is between $20-$50 per hour. Those models who have an enormous online following that will pull in views with the mere search of a name get higher rates. Spokes Models must audition with six sets of lines before being considered for a spokes model spot on the show. No exceptions. Showing me a nice picture will get you looked at but, showing me you can look nice and knock down some lines gets you on the show.
I prefer to work with reliable, local models, actresses and, spokes models. I always do my best to make sure the models look their best. When the models look good then I look good. No nudity in my show either. It's kind of like Cheerleaders for an outdoor show. Spokes model candidates show up with their Moms and Dads all the time to audition for my show.
