How to put together a modeling portfolio

First of all you are going to want to figure out what kind of modeling you actually want to do. Do you want to be a swimwear model, do you want to be a fashion model, whatever kind of modeling you want to focus on that’s the kind of shots you are going to need. You are going to need to find a photographer who specializes on that kind of work that you are looking for. Feel free to research the subject. Look at their work. Look online for work, interview them. Remember though you can often times exchange prints for time so that you won’t necessarily have to pay to get your photos taken. You can also have a friend do it. When you go to your shoot you are going to want to bring everything you might possibly need, different outfits, different accessories,makeup, hair products you name it. If you belong with a Gold Coast Modeling¬† agency you might have the luxury however, of having a stylist with you. So you can just sit back and be pampered for a moment. If you are on your own though, get good at putting your own makeup and doing your own hair. When you finally have your photographs you are going to want to select the very best for your portfolio. You are definitely going to need a couple of closeups, thee quarter and full length shots. Some of these shots can be used for your cards and for your head shots. Lastly if your Modeling agency hasn’t provided you with one you might consider buying a portfolio case. They don’t necessarily have to be expensive and they add a very professional touch to your photographs. Be sure to update your portfolio and include any tear sheets that you might have had along the way. A tear sheet is the published product of the work that you’ve done, that might appear in publications or magazines or even online. Keep your portfolio updated and never, ever stop practicing. Pose in front of the mirror and get comfortable. Lastly good luck.
