”What do I need in my portfolio?” says model!

Whilst strolling through the net! I saw some videos from the ford models showing their portfolio! It is a great look for those not knowing what to add to their collection or models who want to start modeling.

Examples of good model’s portfolio for agency models:

1. Beauty shot.
2. Natural light shots.
3. Fashion shots in front of seamless paper.
4. Swimsuit shot.
5. Tear sheets.
6. Very light makeup shot or no makeup shot if the model can pull it off.
7. Editorial shots.
8. lingerie shots (nothing slutty).

Inspiration #7 – Mario testino

I do not know what it is.. but I love Photography that is shot by a film camera.. whether it is a Mamiya or an Hasselblad.. I love the effect they give.

I still haven’t clocked testino’s style but it seems like he loves shooting candid style shots , which I like.. also I love his black and white shots! makes me want to shoot on film!

check out his work..

Tracer, from north west London, has definantly excelled through the past year. From shooting urban, he stepped up and starting shooting high fashion and beauty. he has started to shoot some stunning models and creating amazing results from it.

He has been quiet during the past year.. and selective in who is using for his shoots, he is definantly a artist to look out for.

Inspiration #6 – Rankin

”…Rankin, who is this guy you call ‘Rankin”. I said to my friend ‘Tracer’.  Not knowing who this guy was, I typed his name on google and found his website. Only three words can describe Rankin’s work; Amazing, Crazy and erm yeah.. Amazing.

Rankin has worked with Kate Moss, The Queen, Heidi Klum, Lindsay Lohan, Gordan Brown, Jay-z, Lily Allen and loads more. His portfolio is very big and explosive, every picture gives you a ‘BANG..WOW’ effect.

Recently watching his videos on youtube, Rankin has inspired me to work harder than I actually do. He has shown me that… There is no rest for the best.

Inspiration#3 – Douglas Bizzaro + Elizibeth Moss

I was researching on the web.. and I came across this amazing site with some amazing photographs bu Douglas and Elizabeth … There was something rather confusing though.. either they use the same retouchers as Markus Klinko which is Indrani or….

They use the same techniques in some beauty shots.. The pictures below are my favourite type of beauty shots .. with the fierce face .. and the hair blowing everywhere with the golden face.

I love the way they have been retouched….but they do look very similar..
