Why do we offer a trial option?
It is simple let us face it there are hundreds of photographers out there not all of them are actual professionals. Owning a DSLR does not make you a professional photographer, don't get me wrong there are good amateur photographers out there you don't have to use a professional. But do you know who you will be shooting with are you going to be comfortable and will he or she be able to deliver what you want. Or what the agencies require? The biggest question should be can you trust that person is he or she offering their services for the right reasons.

WeI have seen so many "models" regret being talked into shoots that ended or forced their careers into directions they did not intend to go. Or cannot go into the direction they want because of photos of them that are out there.

It is very important that the photographer and the model discuss what exactly it is he or she needs from the shoot. What to photos are intended for and who will have the right to use them on any platform. The model needs to know what industry or genre of modeling she wants or intends to do. He or She needs to not only look at the short therm but long term goals for example if you are planning to enter Miss or Mr SA it would not be advisable to do glamour shoots. Also if you don't intend to do lingerie modeling no agency will ask you for those types of photos or let us say no reputable agency will ask you for those type of photos if you wont be applying for those type of jobs.

Please be careful, even though modeling is an great and possibly a very lucrative profession it is also a very dangerous profession.  Please look after yourself if you are unsure or uncomfortable about a photographer or a shoot don't do it! Or if you cant stop yourself and you just have to do it don't go alone and make sure you know what you are signing up for in advance.

What types of pictures should a model’s portfolio contain?

A portfolio should showcase the type of work you want to do, not so much the type of work you have done and are no longer doing. It should be narrowly focused to show that the model can be very good at modeling in a few related genres. A good combination might be fashion, beauty, commercial, and swim wear but such a portfolio should not include nudes, trashy lingerie, bondage, or goth. There is no reason a model can't create multiple portfolios targeted for specific genres. Some models will argue that they want to put in a little of everything to showcase their versatility. That model probably works better for models targeting photographers as clients. Models who want to target agencies, casting directors, and commercial clients should show only their strongest images in specific categories. Any weak images will weaken the entire portfolio.

Examples of bad model's portfolio include:

1. Same outfit in different poses.
2. Different outfit in the same location.
3. All pictures done by one or two photographer.
4. Unretouched images showing flaws.
5. Fake tear sheets.
6. Poorly shot photos of model in no name runway fashion shows.
7. Personal snapshots such as photos from a wedding or any photos which include non models.

Examples of good model's portfolio for agency models:

1. Beauty shot.
2. Natural light shots.
3. Full length fashion shot in front of seamless paper.
4. Swimsuit shot but not one of the model standing in the woods miles from water.
5. Tear sheets but not webzines. If no one has heard of it, don't use it.
6. Very light makeup shot or no makeup shot if the model can pull it off.
7. At least one picture pairing model with another model.
8. Editorial shots.
9. Sexy but tasteful lingerie shots. Think La Perla, not Frederick's of Hollywood.

For commercial portfolios:

1. A very strong head shot.
2. Shots showing model interacting or playing a role.
3. Shots showing model conveying a mood or message.
4. Interaction shots with other models or objects.
