Modelling Portfolio

Empire models are the gold standard for fashion based photography our modelling portfolio service, digital materials and all intellectual properties are industry recognised and widely accepted by modelling agencies and casting services nationwide so you don’t have to be from London to get started as a freelance or signed model.

A Modelling portfolio is an essential tool for a model to gain professional work. It is a collection of professionally shot images that is ultimately your visual modelling CV used to advertise your skills and abilities in front of the camera.

Although professional images are not needed to apply to agencies a portfolio is something that they will need to market you in the future and you can use to market yourself to freelance opportunities. It is almost impossible to be put forward for or apply to castings without one, as agents and casting directors will want to see that you have the confidence, experience and natural ability in front of the camera before offering you paid work.

Model Z-cards

Sometimes model jargon can be difficult to understand when you are not used to the terms; Z-cards are effectively models’ business cards. A Z-card should display a model’s statistics, contact information and a variety of portfolio images, including one headshot, one natural shot and a selection of your best images. A Z-card is used as a standard in the industry as a way to advertise yourself and is often a more convenient way to leave a sample of your modelling portfolio with clients. It’s always advisable to carry Z-cards with you, as you never know when you will meet a potential contact.

Model webfolio

Having a top quality can make a huge difference to a budding model, it provides the client a chance to see how your look translates to behind the camera and a chance for them to see how you would fit into their vision. Having a diverse portfolio, portraying a range of different characters and settings will show you in many different lights and this adaptability of your image will make you more desirable to a client as you’ve more chance of fitting their desired look.

Ultimately what clients want to see from your portfolio is your personality and so using on the best quality photos, critically chosen by you (with our assistance) will give you a top quality set of images that portrays you in the best possible way, making sure you include studio shots as well as on location, full lengths and close-ups.

Traditionally these are printed and compiled in a binder but as the world has become more dependent on technology the online portfolio has become more prominent in the modelling industry. These are a showcasing of your best pictures but through a web-link rather than hard copies in a binder.

A Webfolio is easy to maintain with little effort required to update them. Along with this they offer a model the chance to include more images and present a wider range of their talents and looks whilst also providing all necessary information (age, contact information and statistics) all within the same space, at just the click of a button.

What’s most important when creating a portfolio is to make sure you are using only your best photos and that they are all of a professional quality. Being critical with your pictures will mean that you only include your strongest, most amazing images and you will be portrayed in the best possible way making you more desirable to potential clients out there.

Empire Models would love to help you on this step of the journey and possess the necessary tools and experience to give you only the best quality portfolio.
