How to create a professional portfolio
A model portfolio is a collection of professional images and your portfolio must say something about you, agencies don’t want to see pretty images, they want to see attitude, personality and ultimately how versatile you can be.
Get a professional model portfolio tailored to your personal needs.
Tailor your portfolio to a specific niche.
If we believe your application shows model potential and that you would benefit from our support and possibly help to create and build your very own portfolio then you will normally receive a text message within 72 hours of registration. At busy times this may take longer. The application will then be passed onto one of our new faces consultants who will contact you in due course to discuss further.
How can UK Models help?
Here at UK Models you can register with a recent clear image to find out if you show model potential and gain free advice and guidance on how to progress your modelling career.
We have trained New Face consultants who can offer you the chance to visit a top London studio in order to assess your potential in front of a professional fashion photographer.
In doing so we may possibly be able to offer the opportunity to your very own professional model portfolio. A model portfolio is always an investment and an assessment photo shoot with UK Models will give you the chance to see if it is an investment worth making.
Once you have your portfolio we have a professional support team on hand to advise you until you are signed to an agency or confidently freelancing.
What is a digital portfolio?
Your digital portfolio is a disk containing your chosen images from the shoot. When purchasing digital images, you are actually paying for the copyrights. Without these, you would not legally be able to use them.
If you are purchasing any portfolio with us whether it be digital, printed or an e-Folo, you will need to pay for the rights to use the images first. This means all of our packages come with digital images.
Having your images on disk also means that you don’t need to worry about them ever getting damaged or lost as you can download them straight to your computer.
They can also be used over and over again as you can email them to agencies or clients to promote yourself, unlike prints where you only receive one copy. They also allow additional retouching, resizing and cropping where you or your agency see fit.
What is a printed portfolio?
Your printed portfolio is a book of 10 – 20 A4 fully airbrushed images. This book is what you will take along to castings and to model agency interviews to show them your modeling experience and what you are capable of in front of the camera.
Just like your digital images your printed portfolio is a collection of professional images that need to say something about you, this is why on the day of the shoot one of our professional image consultants will work with you to select the strongest shots and make sure that you have a good selection of all looks.
Having a printed portfolio allows a casting director or agent at your interview to flick through your book of images while you discuss the job or campaign they are looking for models for. It gives the impression that you are serious about modeling and shows that you have professional modeling experience.
How can UK Models help?
