Tips For A Model Portfolio Photo Shoot

Get started today on your road to your modeling career. It all starts with the first modeling shoot — for your portfolio. It will make or break your career. Follow the tips here to ensure success.

Much of the portfolio will include dramatic poses. Be sure to have at least one outstanding headshot from the shoot. Talent and modeling agencies want to see the “real you”, and the headshot deliver that for them. The idea is to use natural, outdoor lighting with little to no makeup. Non-flash is ideal because you want them to see what they will get. All photographers should be able to do this for you. Some will do it better for you. So, be choosy when picking a photographer. Your career depends upon it.

Begin Your Career With That First Modeling Shoot

Everyone has to start somewhere. Everyone’s starting point needs to be with their very first model photoshoot. How else will clients know the range of your expressions and looks? Show them everything from corporate conservative to serious (and fashionable) outdoors woman to your full-on runway sense. Consider this; your clients may be looking for a Bohemian fashion beach shoot down the line to a high-end line of high fashion corporate wear. Do not make them imagine too much because they may not picture you in their shoot.

Various poses, expressions, and wardrobe styles will help show them what you can do for them. Read on and learn how to plan the shoot just right for a successful outcome — a great portfolio.

To get work in the first place, you need something to show to potential clients. Just like actors leave headshots with their dimensions, you need to have various photos to show modeling clients what you can do for them. Whether you have a website or drop-off CDs, ensure they can get in touch with you. More than that, make sure your photos are impressive.

Of course, you are excited to book your first job. Though, the bookings will not be significant unless your portfolio is excellent. Many models do not give enough attention to the modeling shoot, especially the first one. They do not spend sufficient time on building their portfolio. This is the key to getting your career started. It is an excellent way to make a positive and impactful first impression. It’s also the key to future work. Invest yourself fully into it from the poses and wardrobe, well into the hair, makeup and facial expressions you will do too.

1. The Starting Point

Now that you have your plan outlined and your goals made, you have a path to follow to become a model. Your next step is to get your look on paper — or a website — for the world to see.

One of the most essential parts of your entry into male modeling is the first model photo session. You will make a gallery or lookbook of your photos called your modeling portfolios. It may be the only time a commercial or fashion model manager sees you. They will decide whether they want you or pass on your pretty face.

2. The First Shoot Is The Hardest

It’s time to do your first photo shoot. It’s intimidating and stressful. Preparation is the only way to slay the beast. That’s why picking the right photography studio can help you get the pictures you need to succeed.


Sure, it looks easy to model, but there is much more to it than meets the eye. Though, newcomers tend to experience something that’s expected — nerves. They may freeze in front of the camera or feel too uptight. That can get in the way of success for a shoot unless it’s for a gallery about horror flicks!

It cannot be said enough, but preparation is essential to get the photos to work best for your gallery. Walk through the poses with the actual clothing on to understand how everything flows. Ensure you have your entire range of motion in all the clothes, identifying any barriers to movement (such as discomfort) long before the shoot. Do a run-through with a friend taking photos, even if you delete them all later.

You need to ensure that you are mentally prepared. Also, you may even find some practical issues you would never have imagined showing up to. Doing a few run-throughs will help you avoid problems during the actual shoot. If you waste the photographer’s time, it can also mess up their inspiration, which can mess up your photos.

3. Professional Expression

While the photographer will work very hard, be sure you are not making the mistake of “watching them work”. No, do not let them take over your shoot. They are there whether you become the next “it” girl or not. You need to be careful managing the photos aligning with your career to overstepping into controlling and bad vibes land. Look through magazines to understand how paid professional models work their bodies for their shoots.

They exude confidence stepping seamlessly into the role of embodied emotion. They do this well because they are fully present in their body.

When participating in the model shoot, many girls mistake waiting for directions. This is your shoot to demonstrate your many faces and dramatic roles, all through the art of expression just through your body. Only you know yourself and know how to do this best. So, do not just stand there for the photographer to do all the work.

4. Getting Dramatic While Switching Poses

You may have read it before, but when switching poses, you might time the shots to coordinate, moving from one dramatic pose to the next. Overdo the angles for a more significant impact.

Take A Pose (And Much More)

If you know a handful of poses, great. Now, go online, go into old and new books, and look through other models’ gallery pages. Find more poses, especially if you are still honing your modeling techniques be open to suggestions and tips online and offline. Being armed with many poses for your shoot will help you get the best out of yourself. Be sure to have time allotted to get up to 20 different shots. Have a whole host of poses for each of those shots. Have your wardrobe ready beforehand ready to go. Plan everything out to ensure you do not mess up your hair and makeup, or have to reapply, just because you did not plan.

After the first session, choosing the photos that best depict you will have a tougher role. Be discerning, be picky, and allow yourself to identify the very best photos. While your agent might have an eye for what could help your career and might understand what look is extensive now, you need to remember you are ultimately in charge.

It’s great to have a dream to get you interested, much like a catalyst to get the burning desire to be a model ignited in the first place. It will keep you going when you work day in and day out on building yourself as a model.

You will become more confident and cultivate your gift as you work on yourself. In modeling, building confidence is essential to your career success. Remember, you only get to make one first impression. Get it right the first time by taking your first shoot seriously.

Start out on the right foot. Have your beginner model photo shoot to get ahead of 80 per cent of the pack just starting. While it will still take a lot of work and patience, it will be worth it.

Competing for modeling jobs gets exhausting, even for the best models. One call after another, maybe without any feedback or response at all. And then, finally, those big breaks break open the floodgates. It’s a numbers game. If you stop trying, you will never make it. Just keep doing your best and showing up. It’s worth the price you have paid when you finally see your face on the front cover of a magazine or online.
