Quick Tip #20

Category: Agencies
For: Male & Female Models

When it comes to photos for open calls or submissions online/offline, make sure you've got digital snapshots...even if you're a professional model with an established portfolio. For newbies, snapshots are a must! If you have some pro images from test shoots, definitely bring those along as well but having the snapshots handy will really give you an advantage. Agencies can always tell a true model's potential by how she/he photographs without fancy makeup, hair and extensive photo retouching.

While most experienced models with portfolios can usually get away with that alone, don't count out the power of a good ole snapshot. Headshot and full body frontal are the bare minimum. Full body profiles of each side aren't mandatory but helpful. Remember, there's nothing wrong with wanting to cover all your bases in order to impress an agency!
