Modelling and Acting Portfolios

Modelling Portfolios and Acting headshots are your resume. Without one, you’ll likely fail to land auditions/ castings.

A portfolio will always be the first thing that agencies and clients look at before they even choose to see you in person. And for that reason, it is highly recommended to focus on the building of an impressive modelling portfolio that will enable you to establish a successful career as a model. A client will often get a stack of portfolios to look through and only the ones that stand out get a face-to-face.

It is not only a collection of photographs but a showcase of your talent and experience as a model or actor. The more professional and versatile you come across, the more likely you are to land work.

It should only contain your best images. For a truly professional portfolio, you’ll want only a few of your best shots. Your portfolio must have clean professional photos, as agencies and casting directors want to work with experienced professionals.
