Answering a Reader Question #355

Anonymous Wrote:

Hi Dania, I have a question regarding tear sheets. This photographer that I shot for is putting together a natural hair project. She says the pictures will be on her website when the project is finished. Since I participated in the project does this count as a tear sheet. I'm just wondering because then I could add it to my book. Oh and what is the technical definition of a tear sheet. 

Hey there, Anonymous! Yes, the images of yourself that will appear on the photographer's website count as tearsheets. Because they are in a digital format, they fall under the category of "digital tearsheets."

The technical definition of a tearsheet is any published/printed image that you appear in as a model. Online modeling images that appear on websites, online articles, advertising banners, etc. also count as being "published," therefore they are a part of the tearsheet family.

To learn more about tearsheets, you'll want to check out these two blog posts I wrote about this topic:

I have a question about digital tearsheets. I know you said to take a screen cap of the page with the info, but what do I do when my photos appear on the bottom of the page where the info can't be seen if I screen cap it?

Hi Dania a question i have related to the modelling industry; I'm just beginning and have been and had an interview with Vivienne's and ,now here comes the part which upsets me, I went to walking classes at viviennes and was told that they would get back to me in a day or two and still I have not heard from them, are they really interested in me at all or am i just being hopeful for nothing.

Hi Dania, I would like to get started in the commercial/print modeling, but I'm 15 and 5'4". Is that too short? If I go to an open call, would they turn me down because of my height? Also, could you find me any agencies in the DFW area?
