The Model Portfolio

When you first start out as a model it isn't essential to get professional photos. If an agency is interested in you, but is not quite ready to register you, the agency will ask you for a portfolio. For a brand new model, this could be very confusing because they might not have an idea as to what the agency is looking for or what this means.

Tell A Story!

Your Portfolio is a Work in Progress 

The objective of an excellent portfolio isn't to fill it up with several o pictures. A portfolio should tell a story about who the model (you) is as a brand, and also the direction the model is heading in their career. It is far better to have 3 or 4 excellent shots than ten shots that are mediocre. 

Work With Many

Diverse

Shoot with as many photographers as you can so you will take advantage of the various styles every photographer possesses; this will also give you experience working with a wide range of personality types. Each time you do a photo shoot, you'll get better and better! Keep at it, and you'll be sure to be successful!

Lets Roll!

01 

A beauty shot or clean headshot

Agencies prefer pictures that show the model's flexibility and their capability to express themselves. They also want to see how well a model can tell a story or depict a feeling or emotion in their photographs. You can choose to be intriguing, seductive, innocent or any other emotion that shows your versatility as a model. 

The goal of a beauty shot is to ensure that the model is shown in a more realistic position that captivates the audience, which makes it possible for the agency or customer to see precisely how a model looks without heavy makeup or styling. 

02

Full Length Body Shot 

This shot permits the agency/client to find the model's proportions and physique. Clothes should be form-fitting and natural.

03

Swimsuit Shot 

If you're over 16 years of age and are comfortable doing a swimsuit/trunks shot, then this should be the next photograph on your book. When doing a swimsuit shot, it's significant to always think about the message you're sending.

04

The Editorial Fashion Shot 

When you're first starting out as a model, it isn't essential to get professional photos. But if an agency is interested in you, but it's not quite ready to register you, the agency might ask you for a portfolio. For a brand new model, this could be very confusing because they have no clue as to what the agency is looking for or what it means.

05

The Smile

Agencies and clients love to see your smile, but more importantly, your teeth.

It's okay if you don't have an ideal set of teeth, in actuality, lots of supermodels have been known for their gap-toothed smiles or sexy overbites.

06

A Strong Closer

Always end with one of your sharpest pictures. Another exquisite beauty or headshot that is a bit different than your opening shot will work ideally.

Many individuals only remember the very first and very last shot on your book, so make sure these shots will be your strongest ones.
