Model Tip: How to Get Free Modeling Portfolio Pictures
Is anything ever really free? Can you really get free model photos for your portfolio? Well, yes and no. And, you’d better believe that modeling portfolio photographers are not just in this business for the fun of it. At least I’m not one of them.
Getting Professional Pictures for Your Modeling Portfolio – FREE!
Sure, I love photography and I get excited about working with professional fashion models who can come alive in front of my lens. But, I also have to eat, don’t I?
So how do you get free modeling portfolio pictures and look like a pro at the same time?
Well, Spankie is not only a fun-loving girl who really puts on a quirky show in her video – she also knows her stuff when it comes to learning how to become a professional model so watch and listen.
Oh, and bookmark this video so you can come back to it later in case you forget something!
Include These Shots
Spankie suggests that you include photographs especially for the type of modeling you are doing – or want to do. For instance, if you want to be a runway model then include some pictures of yourself walking on the catwalk. Makes sense, doesn’t it?
Same goes for commercial or even lingerie modeling pictures. Show a variety of what you can do and your chances of getting jobs increases.
Lastly (one of her first suggestions) is to make the absolute best head shot (facial closeup) you can. This one should show a really good look at your face with an expression that grabs attention. You can do that, can’t you?
If you’ve already been published in a magazine or other advertisement, then you’ll want to tear out the page and put it in your portfolio. This is where the term “tear sheet” comes from.
To a model management company or agent, there is nothing sexier than a model who has proven herself or himself in front of the camera.
The bigger the company who used you (i.e. Levi Jeans) the more impressed they will be. These tear sheets can do a lot to sell you to those who might want to hire your services.
Watch the Video – Getting Photos for Free is to Come ..
I’m not going to give away the secret. At the end of the video above, Spankie is very clear about how to get free modeling portfolio pictures along with some tips you really need to listen to to keep safe and out of the pitfalls that go along with “free” stuff.
