Project Details //

The expedition provides the opportunity for models and fashion professionals to collaborate together to create images that will be beneficial to all collaborators.Expeditions are created to be social projects. This means that you will be interacting with a lot of people that you may have never met. To get the most out of this experience a positive energy is required. Leave your egos at home and bring your creativity, wanderlust, and ambition.

Not included in your Expedition Rate.

Flights are not included in your expedition rate. The Project manager can assist you with purchasing discounted airline flights for an additional fee. Transportation, Food, Tourism Expenses, Location Admissions and Personal Expenses are also not included in this rate. We will try our best to give you an estimated quote of how much you should prepare for additional expenses.

Don’t forget your passport, traveler’s checks, ATM and/or credit cards, adequate ID, and photocopies of all of the aforementioned in case these documents are lost or stolen. Also check that you have any of the following that might apply to you: a driver’s license; travel insurance forms; ISIC .

Prepare a personal first aid kit. Bring along a small kit containing first aid materials like Band-Aids, ChapStick, some antibiotic ointment, an ace bandage and a roll of white medical tape. If you require anything other than those items, then you should probably seek medical attention. With the physical activities available during the expedition, you don't want a cut or a bruise slowing you down! If you take medications and your prescriptions are in need of a refill, make sure you remember to have it filled before you leave for the expedition. Some pharmacies may give you a difficult time if you're going to be on vacation when your prescription runs out. They may refuse to fill the refill early. For this situation, you may need to talk to the pharmacy's manager and show him your reservation plans or get your doctor to speak to the pharmacy. This could take a few days for them to get this ironed out, so don't wait until the last minute before taking care of this.


There are 2 photographers on this expedition Shamayim and Ryan Alston. When you are not shooting with Shamayim you will be working with Ryan. Ryan has trained under Shamayim for over a year. You are in great hands with Ryan.


Kirsten Thompson is the scheduled stylist for the shoot IG @kiri_elle_tee

Photographers if you have specific concepts for the models, you need to arrange wardrobe for that concept.

Models it is recommended that you contact designers and ask them if you can pull from them for your shoots. 

Makeup / Hair

There is not a registered Makeup / Hair Stylist for this Expedition. Models come prepared to do your own makeup and hair. If you would like to arrange a mua for your shoots we can commission one for you for $125. Please let us know ASAP.


Public transportation is available throughout Paris via bus and subway. It is the least expensive way of getting from one place to another. Shamayim prefers to take taxi or Uber. It is easier and efficient but more expensive. He suggest splitting the price of Uber / Taxi amongst the team. There will also be a lot of walking throughout Paris so please come prepared for that.
