|Have you ever thought about opening your own M2F transformation service, but
don’t know how or where to start? Have you always wished you knew how to do
great makeup and photography, but don’t have the time or budget to study? Are
you interested in owning the business, but don’t have the time or freedom to run it
yourself? Whatever your personal situation may be, we’ve got a solution for you.
|Transitions Makeup & Photo: Hollywood (formerly Transformations
by Gina) has provided discreet, quality, and judgement-free services to the local
and visiting transgender and crossdressing communities for over 18 years. Now
you too can learn how to open and run your own transformation business from
the best and longest-running service in the U.S.!
We offer several different options to fit your budget, ranging from our “Training
Only” package, to our full-on “Licensing Program.” You may want to learn all of
the skills to run the service yourself, or you may want to hire/partner with
someone else to handle the day-to-day operations, while you enjoy the benefits
of having access to a studio anytime you want. You choose the level of time-
commitment and investment that is right for you.
|Training Only: $3,200
Includes 10 full days of training in makeup application, studio photography,
basic portrait retouching with Photoshop, and beginning website design.
We will also set up your social media platforms, and discuss basic
marketing and business management. Cost of this package also includes
hotel accommodations (up to $80/night) and airfare (up to $400) for your
instructor Gina “Jet” Ortiz, owner of Transitions Makeup & Photo. Gina
will travel to your city or town and set up a “pop up” training studio
at her hotel. She will bring all of her own makeup and photographic
equipment, so you need not purchase anything. All you need to bring
is a desire to learn, and a 10-day commitment.
Extra Option: For an additional $500, you may include another person in
the training process. This option will come in handy in the event that you
need a backup artist or manager/business partner, and will be of great
benefit for practicing your makeup and photography after the training.
Breakdown of Costs:
10-Day Training @ $200/day: $2,000
Hotel for Instructor @ $80/day: $800
Airfare for Instructor: $400
Additional Person Fee: $500
Total Cost: $3,700
Please keep in mind that you will need additional funds to start your
business; including a location, equipment and inventory, makeup and
supplies, etc. This training program is designed to provide you with
the skills to get you started, and will include a handy guidebook that
lists equipment and supplies that you'll need, as well as their prices.

|There has never been a better time to start your own service. Transgender
issues are in the media spotlight on a daily basis, and topics such as bathroom
rights, serving in the military, marriage rights, and health care have all brought
the subject out into the light of mainstream society. More and more transgender
kids and adults are coming out of the darkness and embracing their true
selves. Those individuals are looking for understanding, acceptance, safety,
and compassion, and that is what we give them, freely and unconditionally.
Having at least one location in every major U.S. city has been my goal since I
opened this business, and now it seems more possible than ever to achieve
that dream. The world wasn't ready even as recently as 5 years ago, but it is
ready now and we'll be there right in the front of the line to meet the challenge!!
