Building The Perfect Model Portfolio

A model portfolio is the key ingredient to your modelling journey. Many industries (outside of fashion and beauty) require portfolios or resumes as proof that you can get the job done and get it done well. Modelling is exactly the same! Agencies and furthermore potential clients want to see your best work in order to decide if you're the right fit. The better your portfolio is the better your chances are.

The traditional idea of what it means to be a model is in question. Brands are becoming more inclusive, hiring models of different sizes, ages, abilities and backgrounds.
