What kinds of pictures do I need in my modeling portfolio? Your portfolio needs a variety of shots, including headshots and full length photos, as well as three quarter length and full length images. You should have a good balance of shots done in the studio as well as shots done on location in natural lighting. A strong headshot is crucial. You also need a good full-length body shot in your book.
Should all the photos be in color? No. It is ok if all of your shots are in color. There is no rule here. It is ok if you have one or two black and white photos in your portfolio to help ad an additional dimension to your book.
TIP: Take your time. Do your research. Find a photographer that you feel comfortable with and who can guide you through the process with confidence and also teach you about working in front of the camera along the way. Remember, that your modeling portfolio is the most important set of photographs you will ever take.
