I have been a photographer since 1978 and over the years, I have photographed everything from auto racing to paleontology research projects.
I joined Model Mayhem so that I can get back to my first love; photographing people.
You portfolio should contain 8 to 12 of your best photos. At least one of these should be a headshot with very little or no makeup. Another should be full length either in a swimsuit or tight clothes to illustrate your figure.
A business pose and a lifestyle pose are often required as well.
If you want a particular look or style, let me know. I will create as many different looks as possible. Sometimes this may mean shooting together 2 or 3 times.
Your photos will be delivered on a CD or flash drive as both printable files and jpegs for the internet. CDs are much safer than flash drives.
Why printable files? Many professional models still carry print portfolios to agencies or casting calls. Your prints should be either 11x14 or 8x10 in a professional portfolio case. Printable files should also be used for your “zed cards” or composite cards.
Let me know if you need a makeup artist.
Contact me through Model Mayhem and I will provide you with direct contact information.
