Here is a quick overview of how to start a model photo portfolio.
***Disclaimer- I am no expert, but I've done my time both as a model and photog and have learned a thing or two. Teehee
1st- Think Quality- Let’s face it when trying to build a portfolio, cell phone images are not acceptable. (I see you Facebook models trying to charge insane rates with shitastic photos). Yep, I said, and it will ruffle feathers, but the truth hurts. When first starting out, you will have to pay to work with high-end photographers, while new photographers are great and often free, make sure you are putting out only high-caliber work. If you desire a certain look, make sure you find a photographer that specializes in that look. Make sure the first few images on your portfolio are strong amazing images. Why?? Because we as humans are lazy, we don’t have time to scroll through endless profiles, you grab the attention right away you are more likely to get the jobs.
