What Makes A Great Modeling Portfolio?
Every professional model knows the importance of a great book; it’s your resume and is often the only chance you have to make a good impression on a prospective employer. The portfolio is where you carry your best marketing tools — your photos. Here are a few pieces of advice on how to create a great modeling portfolio!
- Remember that modeling is truly a “first impression” business. Set your standards HIGH! You MUST use a very critical eye when selecting any images to put in your modeling portfolio. Make sure that the pictures that you show have the ability to WOW agencies and potential clients.
- You are only as good as your worst image – and believe me – photographers, agencies and art directors WILL remember the worst image. If you do not have enough photos to fill out the entire portfolio, it is better to select fewer high-quality shots than to fill it up with poor-quality shots.
- A portfolio should showcase the type of work you want to do, not so much the type of work you have done and are no longer doing.
- Keep your book clean. Messy books reek of unprofessionalism.
