What Every Model Should have in her Portfolio

Modeling is a very competitive business, and your portfolio could make or break your career as a model. Many people think that a modeling portfolio requires dramatic, extravagant photos- but it’s quite the contrary. Clients want to see you in a clean state, so it’s best for your portfolio to reflect just that. But just because the photos should be simple, doesn’t mean they should be boring! If you take a look at the Lionel & Co. homepage, many of the photos are a great example of what should be in a portfolio. Simple, yet flattering clothing such as blue jeans and a white T-shirt can do the job. Keep the makeup simple as well, but it wouldn’t hurt to add heavier eye makeup or lipstick into the mix for a couple of photos.

The ideal number of photos in your portfolio should be between 10-15 photos with a mix of full body shots as well as headshots. A headshot is a photo taken from the shoulders up, showing just your beautiful face! Don’t be afraid to show your personality and let your inner beauty shine through.
