Got Your Modeling Pictures Yet?
A career in modeling is one of the most sought after fields for young women today.Â It does not matter if you are 5 foot 11 and weigh 100 pounds or 5 foot 2 and weigh 150 pounds.Â Agencies and clients seek out both female and males of every age, shape and size.Â
The Very Beginning
Before you can begin your new endeavor you must schedule a model photo shoot to create the pictures that will be included in your portfolio. Your portfolio is what every agent will look at when considering you for their jobs.
Perfection and Creativity takes Practice
Your model photo shoot is about more than just taking pictures.Â Modeling is a talent that takes perfecting and practice.Â One of the areas very important is natural proper posing.Â
How to Learn Model Posing
Imagine all the different posing positions you’ve seen in magazines.Â Try to emulate the ones that are your favorite.Â Your image of how you want to look will be reflected in your attitude and self confidence.Â
Pay close attention to where they place their hands, their body language technique, and what their facial expressions say.Â Your face and eyes will make a statement.Â The statement you make needs to convey your own personal “look” to make you unique and memorable.Â
Hug Your Photographer (Not Really)
A good rapport with your photographer is very important to your model photo shoot.Â Knowing you are a beginner they will recommend that you bring a few of your own posing ideas to the session and will have their own thoughts to enhance what is special to you.Â
These people are experts in photography and know what will work best for you. Obviously, a session with young girls or teenagers will be world’s apart from that of an older woman in theme, but the photos will all show individual personalities and assets. Â
The Agencies – Composite Cards ( ZED )
In addition to photographs for your portfolio your model photo shoot needs to help you create your comp card.Â Comp card is short for composite cards.Â These are cards that promote you as a model.Â They are the preferred business card for the modeling industry.Â
What Goes on a Comp Card
The front of the card should have a good head shot with your name in bold lettering.Â The back can have a few additional pictures of you along with your vital information.Â This is your contact information as well as personal statistics like height, weight, hair and eye color, measurements and sizes.Â
These cards are a professional way to make a statement.Â You have just stepped from the girl next door into your bright career path as a successful fashion, glamour or maybe even a top runway model.
But, don’t stop here. Learn all you can by studying material in books, online and by talking to others in your profession. And, as stated above, this will not work unless you are willing to. Practice in the mirror daily and then set up your model photo shoot to create beautiful images you’ll be proud to show any agent!
