A collection of photographs to build a model’s portfolio should include appeal, diversity, basic posing and visual impact using the still image.
I find that it is my job, as a photographer to create a fun, comfortable environment for the model as well as a mood that may be used to sell a product to a potential viewer.
I like to establish an idea or concept and use this to achieve several ‘looks’ in one session. Each challenge may emphasize a different aspect or feature.
I enjoyed this session very much. I could even see the confidence and self esteem build throughout.
I often use photos from magazines and compile a collection of head and body shots to help visualize the goals of the shoot. It helps illustrate to the model looks we are trying to achieve.
A model’s portfolio should highlight unique assets. This includes a range of facial expressions and moods. We covered all the necessary needs for creating a Strong, Professional, Eye-catching, and quite Amazing Book!
