Modeling Portfolios

Getting Started
To get started on your new portfolio I will ask that you please send through concept (or inspirational) images that portray the look and feel that you are after for your shoot.

No Experience Required
Don't worry if you are new to modeling! I can help you out with direction and posing, I also do encourage you to practice in front of the mirror beforehand (yes I know that seems silly), but it will help you gain an understanding of your most flattering features.

Hair & Makeup
Hair and makeup are not included in my packages, this will be something you will need to organize yourself, however, I can send through a big list of recommendations! Please keep in mind that I do not know hair and makeup costs, every artist is different.

What to Wear
If this is your very first model portfolio I recommend bringing along some basics (white tee, denim jeans, black underwear/bikini set, etc) as well as any clothing that fits with your concept, or just any of your favorite outfits! I have experience styling.

Location Shoots
Location shoots are typically shot in the late afternoon/evening to capture the best possible light and will usually take place at a beautiful location within the Waikato. If you require me to travel more than 45 minutes out of Hamilton travel fees will be discussed and included on the invoice. I will help you decide on a location.
Modeling and Photography Portfolios

So, you have now learned about what you need to do as a model and what is required, but now it is up to you to put it into action. One of the things that you may want advice about is your modeling or photography portfolio. This is like your resume and for any job, you will want this to speak volumes on your behalf. Having a professional, well presented and great looking portfolio is a must for anyone wanting to be a model. 

Modeling Advice

Beautiful Female Model Poses for Photo
You should have a headshot in your modeling portfolio along with a full-length shot, black and white as well as color photos and even some with different hair colors and styles. If you want to offer these to your agent to add to your portfolio you are more than welcome as long as the photos have been taken by a professional photographer.

When you go for your modeling headshots and photos, take the most flattering clothing you have. Your headshot will probably be taken without any clothing near your neck so that your shoulder and neckline can be more clearly seen, so take along a strapless top for this. Wear the most appropriate makeup for black and white and color photos and have options for wearing your hair up and down.
Always add to your portfolio, so whenever you do jobs, request a copy of the photos sent to your agent so that you can choose the best ones to include. Any that are published in magazines and other printed publications will also be used in your portfolio.

For photographers, your portfolio is also of great importance as it will be a single piece of promotion that you have. People want to see what a photographer can do and how talented he or she is in any specific type of photography before hiring them. Your fashion photography skills will need to be showcased in your portfolio with various styles being depicted. Avoid having too many of the same types of photographs. Showing your versatility is the key to getting more jobs. If you want to create a winning portfolio, you should practice as much as you can and get some people to model for you. They can be friends and family members, but remember that they must look professional. Only use them, it they, have a model face or body that would be used by the agent. If you don’t know anyone like this, then you have an opportunity to make a new model very happy.
