What is a Model Portfolio?

A modelling portfolio is like a model’s CV. It is a folder containing lots of modelling photos that a professional model can take with them to interviews and castings in order to show prospective clients and employers their abilities and experience as a model.

A portfolio is usually a hard-copy that can be physically carried around, but nowadays many models also have a digital version so they can send it via e-mail when required.

What Does a Model Portfolio Look Like?

A model’s physical printed portfolio usually looks like a regular black folder containing plastic pockets that A4-photographs can be slipped into. It’s a good idea for a model to get their images printed off professionally in this size so the portfolio is uniform and so the images are clear and easily seen at a glance.

A portfolio usually contains images including headshots and body shots images to show as much of the model’s flexibility and potential as possible. A portfolio does not contain every single image ever taken of the model; the model must choose which of their photos are portfolio-worthy.

If a model wishes to be a certain type of model and work in a specific field, their portfolio will cater to this; for example, a model who wishes to work in the beauty industry may include more images of their face will makeup on.

Do I Really Need a Model Portfolio if I Want to Model?

All professional models who are signed to an agency will have a portfolio. A portfolio is particularly important for aspiring models; not only will it help them look professional, but it will also help them to get work.

A model will be asked to bring photos with her to castings and agency interviews. A portfolio is a professional and high-quality way of showcasing a model’s best work.

A portfolio will be taken with the model to each agency meetings and client casting they attend. Having a good portfolio is imperative to help a model stand out from the competition and to show why they are the best model for the job.
