Quick Tip #57
For: Male & Female Models
When sending modeling agencies non professional digital snapshots via email, make sure to properly name the jpg files of the images you plan on attaching. But always check the agency website first to find out if there are specific instructions on how they want you to name your image files.
Don't see any such info mentioned? Then here are some recommended file names that can be used for reference...to make it easier for people to understand and model their file names after, we'll use my name.
Let's say I'm about to submit 4 snapshots of myself to an agency: a headshot, full body shot, full body profile shot and a closeup profile shot...below is what I would name the files:
This example isn't absolute and there are variations but in general you want to make sure 2 things appear in the file name: your name and the type of photo it is. Titling image files this way in an email to an agency makes it very easy for anyone reading it to know who the images are of and what type.
When transferring pictures from the camera to your computer, it'll probably have some long, funky name with numbers and letters in it. Do a "Save As" and rename the files properly once you know which ones you want to use and have cropped and/or resized them properly.
