[ ˈmädl pôrtˈfōlēˌō ] noun. // a person chosen to display clothes, makeup, or accessories by wearing them for use in a varied set of photographs of a model or actor intended to be shown to a potential employer.
All of my services are geared toward your specific needs. Whatever you want to communicate through the images is what I get a feel for in an extensive consulting session before we shoot. Your model portfolio is no different we have to take into account the market your hitting (NYC vs. LA vs. MIAMI will be looking for different types of images), Commercial is different than editorial photos. So the main thing here is to provide the next update that will help to get you booked and round out your book.
As a model you should have a model kit and we need everything from that kit and pieces that reflect the market we are updating for. We have some fresh looks in studio but if we are going for something specific we may need to pull a few things from the store. Leave the tags on.
HAIR AND MAKEUP
Models are expected to come clean faced for the makeup artist and hair clean and dried unless discussed otherwise. If my hair stylist is requested to pull hair for the shoot that will be an additional fee. Any additional looks can also be done for an extra fee.
My returning clients will not pay the full first time fee after our first shoot. The rate will be 40% of what the initially rate was for the photography services. This is great for those that are in the business and need to refresh the portfolio or update their look.
