"HEY MODELS ..."
by James A. Ireland
I often suggest to models that they shoot and post their own model Polaroids; very few do it however, to their own detriment in my opinion. ALL agency models have up-to-date Polaroids. You should too!
This article was published on MM today and it agrees with me.

So models ... instead of taking more self-indulgent Instagrammed selfies ... read the article above and go take your Polaroids and post them to your portfolio today! You'll look like a pro who knows the business and professional photographers looking to cast for shoots will appreciate your effort and know they're looking at the portfolio of someone who knows what (he or) she's doing.
