There's no better way to create a great presentation than to have a pro head shot as the leading image in your portfolio, or on the front of your composite card.
My primary goal here is not only to offer you a few valid suggestions on completing a stunning pro book, but also to give you a few pointers on what not to do, or what not to include in your new or updated portfolio.
One of the biggest misconceptions a model can have is the idea that they need to stuff their books with as many images as they can possibly fit into a twenty page portfolio book. I think that ten great images will blow away another models book with 40 images back to back cover to cover. The reason is that many people simply will not spend the time needed to really look closely at every image.
There is one thing I can't stand... and that's a sloppy book. Neatness, clean images, a few good theme shots and maybe a little bit of an unusual twist is all you really need.
I love youth, and so does the camera. Regardless of your age you can find a youthful grin and a cheerful glance, that will put that teen gleam in your eyes.
You must also send out your shots to everyone. Don't let them sit at home. Get them out in the mail, scan them, put them up on your site, and email them out.
