How to become a model

How many photographs do you need in a modelling portfolio

“How many photos are enough for my folio book ?”– if that’s your constant nagging query, then read below to get some wise advice from top fashion photographer Praveen Bhat. He pitches in to help you as an aspiring model and gives some handy tips-

The right photographer: According to Praveen Bhat, the foremost requirement is to get your folio done from the right photographer. Your photographer must be capable of getting the best out of you in terms of expressions and profile. As a true guide and mentor, the fashion photographer will be interested in putting you in the best possible frame which can be marketed well.

Look for variations: Try to include variations in your profile to show your versatility. The top fashion photographer advises you to pose with the best possible age range – be it a college student or an office goer. Adorn multiple looks so that you are open to variety of work. Take care not to get your folio done in one look or age range.

Expressions are important: Variation in looks and attire alone does not suffice a good portfolio. According to the top fashion photographer, giving your best range of expressions is a must, as stone-faced models do not have a promising future.

Get a substantial Folio done from a good fashion photographer. He will shoot a good lot of frames but will select those 8 to 10 best shots which portray you in the best light. These pics are then forwarded to the clients and agencies for promising results.
So friends, do not make a pile of your photos, rather make a crisp and appealing portfolio.
