A modelling portfolio is a collection of photographs that will highlight your style range and ability. It is the key to showcasing your strengths and experiences while establishing a good first impression among modelling agencies and clients.
We are a team of the best fashion photographers specializing in modelling portfolios in Mumbai. Following are the steps to making a portfolio.
1. Decide on your modelling type.
There are many categories of model photography that one can get into, including fashion, runway, commercial, boudoir etc. In making your model portfolio, you should determine the type of modelling you prefer and what is the best for you. Making your modelling portfolio specific for one model category would help pinpoint your goal and make it easier for recruiters.
2. Hire a hairstylist and makeup artist.
Hiring a professional hair and makeup artist is necessary. They will help you with the different styles and outfits you want. Don’t forget to do a couple of test shots with your hair and makeup before the actual shooting starts.
3. Practice your poses.
Remember to practice different poses and facial expressions before the D-day. You can search online for poses in a particular category that models use for their portfolios.
4. Choose suitable outfits.
Prepare a set of outfits you would like to add to your portfolio. Remember to include a plain shirt with fitting jeans to show your body proportion. Avoid clothes with prints, patterns, or oversized/layered that would cover up your frame.
5. Hire a professional photographer.
Your photos are the meat of your portfolio. You should hire a professional photographer who has experience in model portfolio photography. You can browse the web for the best portfolio photographer or modelling portfolio in Mumbai. Opt for someone who has a lot of experience in this field. Prepare a “shot list” to make sure both you and the photographer are on the same page.
We hope these steps help you build a modelling portfolio. Also, now you know whom to contact for model portfolio photography.
