How To Join Top Modelling Agencies with a Portfolio Photoshoot in Sydney

How do you become a model? How do you break into the Australian modelling industry? Great questions, lets find a few answers to getting you started. There are a few different approaches you can take to make it as a model, but we have found that regardless of anything else; a great professional modelling portfolio is going to give you the edge and the best chance to break into the fashion and modelling industry. Read on below

And here's the first reason. Model Agencies and Bookers are busy people. Yes that is 100% boring and 100% true! If you want to get their attention you need pictures that stand out too them - pictures that catch their attention in a business that is driven by pictures! That means the kind of picture they expect to see with something more - forget Instagram and the crazy creative stuff! - There will be plenty of time for that later - So why do you need straight-down-the-line pictures to get into a top model agency? Because they need clean, clear strong pictures to SEE you, YOU in capital letters with no guess work required. No one has time to guess what you look like. If they have to guess; they won't. It will just be,"next model" with good pictures that they can turn to. Your time will have already passed!!! Remember, even a Unicorn viewed from the wrong angle looks like a horses... You need to to look Unicorn-You from-the-front, at the very start, and exactly the right angle.

The  good news is my team and I have been making great looking portfolio pictures that get you unicorn noticed; for years! The kind of picture you will love and modelling agencies love too. And that is a very good thing. It is what you need. My team and I have helped a lot of attractive young people who have done photo sessions with portrait studios who do "model portfolio" pictures that were rejected. The pictures by the way were fine as portraits.. but not as model portfolio shots; and the agents agree, they are not the right stuff. What do they say, "we can't use these pictures." Portraits are not model portfolio pictures.

In today's world it's also important to put yourself out there on social media, with Instagram being the platform of choice. It is very competitive and a tough crowd so you may want to set up a modelling-only profile; so you can keep your private life private. Even if you want your IG page to look like it's your real world. There's more info, so scroll down and read on.

Next; how can we help you land a top modelling agency. By helping you be yourself. As the saying goes, "be yourself everyone else is taken!" And as true as that is, it's also helpful to work with a team that can bring out your unique qualities that can get you seen by the Modelling Industry. This is one reason we don't try to photograph you in just one hour! It takes time to make great pictures, to get to know you, your look, what makes you, you. And it's something that cannot be rushed. My portfolio shoots are from two to four hours long, I don't like to be rushed and neither should you. This is part of the approach to creating beautiful strong model portfolio pictures that get you noticed.

Of course - well maybe not of course if you don't already know. On of the biggest pictures you need for a modelling portfolio is the Headshot! The Headshot is the first hit; the hero or heroine of your comp card, your CV, your life as a model. And again, it is not a portrait! (I go into detail here)

My modelling industry ready, eye catching pictures can be the difference between getting the attention of agency bookers, talent reps and photographers looking to book models that you need.
