"The Shops at Noterra" Seeks Models for Advertising Campaign; No Pay, But You Keep Photos

Hey, good-lookin' -- be a model for a fancy strip mall in the North Valley.

The Shops at Noterra, which opened in 2006 near Interstate 17 and Happy Valley Road, will hold an open casting call from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. on March 28 for models to be photographed for an upcoming ad campaign. The Shops' news release says the center is looking for a diverse range of men, women and children (though the folks in this Noterra Web site picture are kind of milquetoast) and even some "retired couples," (which seems like code for sexy senior citizens).

No money is being offered, but aspiring models can use the experience as a career stepping-stone.

From the release:


The finalists will then be hand picked to take part in a professional, day-long photo shoot at The Shops at Norterra, complete with hair and makeup sessions. Winners will receive a Norterra Gift Card and use of the photos for their portfolio. Between 18 and 24 people will be chosen for the final shoot.

"When we began considering models to appear in our advertising campaign, we quickly realized that fabulous potential models visit The Shops at Norterra every day," said The Shops at Norterra Marketing Director Stephanie Case.
