A licensed real-estate agent, Serkan Behaettin initially visited The Photo Studio to get photos of himself for work. During his shoot, however, Serkan quickly showed his model prowess. He left with an outstanding portfolio, which helped him land a modelling contract with Wink Models.
“I did some research and came across The Photo Studio, and judging by all their positive reviews I got my photos taken by them. I got some outstanding photos. I sent through my images from The Photo Studio and immediately got a response from Wink Models happy to have me on board. That’s how it all began”, Serkan explained.
When Serkan came into our Melbourne studio for his photo-shoot, he chose to wear mostly business-attire so that his photographs would look professional and refined, and would work for business purposes. Opting for both a navy and black suit, Serkan took some great, sleek shots that are perfect for use in a professional setting.
He also wore a couple of streetwear outfits so that he could have a variety of photographs. In these photos, Serkan displayed a laid-back, youthful side that differentiates vastly from his business looks. This helped him develop a portfolio that displays his versatility, and talent as a model.
After being so impressed with his photos, it became clear to Serkan that he had legitimate potential as a model. He also felt that he had developed important skills in styling and posing through the help he received from our studio.
“The Photo Studio is not just a place where you get photos taken. They provide you with advice as well if your wanting to take on a career in modelling. They help you as much as possible. I had no prior experience in modelling before visiting The Photo Studio but they helped with the styling, poses, advice
As for advice for people thinking about coming into the studio, Serkan says his “best advice would be to have a chat with The Photo Studio prior to coming in, let them know what you have in mind and the look you’re going for in order to ensure that they provide you with the best possible images to make you stand out”.
“For other models trying to get signed, my best advice would be to make sure you choose the best possible company to take your photos such as The Photo Studio. Your photos must stand out. Quality over quantity. You must provide your best possible photos and have professionals help you with this as your photos will be your first impression”.
Having been to multiple castings already, and with an incredible eagerness to “get as well known as possible”, it looks like Serkan is a model to watch!
