Portfolios and Headshots

Studio portraiture in easy reach of Rotherham, Sheffield, Barnsley and Doncaster!

I do model and all kinds of other portfolio shoots, I have good experience in doing them, and what is basically needed – and that might differ depending on the age of the model i.e. child portfolio requirements will be different to teen and adult. Portfolio shoots can be done for men as well as women and children.

However, the basics are the same and usually consist of at least one or more of the following…

1) Headshots are images where the model’s face is depicted clearly. The picture is typically of the model’s head and upper torso, taken at close range. It’s important that the headshot focus on the face. They are also usually taken with minimal make-up, so that the model’s facial structure and skin tone are evident. Every model needs one in his or her portfolio. For performer portfolios, this is less important but often still required.
2) Beauty shots, on the other hand, are artistic images, that like the headshot, are of the model’s head and upper body. However, unlike headshots, the model is made-up and may be posed dramatically. If you want to work as a commercial print model, this photograph is a must for you.
3) Fashion shots are exactly what they sound like: photographs of the model wearing different outfits, with the focus being on the clothing. Even the model’s make-up complements the outfit. These images are for fashion models.
4) Swimsuit or lingerie shots showcase the model’s body. This is another photo that you’ll need for commercial modeling.
5) Another photo that’s important if you want to go into commercial modeling is the editorial shot. Centered around a story, here’s is where you’ll be playing a character in a particular narrative.
6) Performer portfolio shots include full body shots, headshots (very straight on and angled) and with some expression shots as well.
