MYMODELPLACE.COM | HOW TO ORGANIZE AN EYE-CATCHING FASHION MODEL PORTFOLIO

How to organize an eye-catching fashion model portfolio:  Have you always wanted to become a model but not sure where to start?  Has the fashion and modeling industry always been an attraction for you?  Do you have ‘the look’.  If so you may be asking yourself how you can get started..

How to Create a Fashion Model Portfolio | MyModelPlace.com

The first and most important step is to create a portfolio.  This can be an online portfolio or a psychical ‘compcard’ style portfolio.  In the past only actual physical images were accepted, but this is an outdated way of thinking thanks to the Internet.

Putting together a modeling portfolio allows you to easily present your modeling images to potential clients. This can be done online, through an agency or through the mail.  Your modeling portfolio should include a collection of images and depict you in several poses and outfits.  Don’t limit yourself to headshots.  In order for potential clients to get a better idea of your appearance you will need multiple images ranging from formal wear to swimwear.

Modeling agencies usually have a set way they like a modeling portfolio to be arranged. This differs by agency, but you can put together a modeling portfolio separate from your agency portfolio or just for your own use if you are not represented by a modeling agency.  It is not always a rule to have ‘standard’ images, but you may want to follow certain guidelines when creating a portfolio that will be submitted to agencies.  Below are a few suggestions:

Buy a 9″x12″ or 11″x14″ simple black portfolio book for displaying your images. Portfolio books can be found at any art supply or photography store. Make sure you get a portfolio book and not a picture album. There is a big difference. A black portfolio book that zips shut and has two black handles is perfect.

The quality of the images in your portfolio is more important than having a large number of images in your portfolio. If you have three really great pictures, they will make for a better portfolio than using fifty not so great ones. More is not always better. Go for quality.

Larger pictures of 9″x12″ or 11″x14″ are better than smaller sizes. Large pictures are industry standard for portfolio use and give clients a better image when considering you for a modeling job.

Go for variety when possible. Don’t put ten images of you with the same background in your portfolio. You need to show your versatility in your modeling portfolio. Avoid using multiple images from the same photo shoot or wearing the same outfit.

Choose images that show you from different angles and different shots. When possible, try to include at least one head shot, one profile, one three quarter shot, one body shot ,etc.

Show images with you dressed in different styles. For example, when possible strive for a swimsuit shot, a conservative businessperson shot, a catalog modeling type shot, an action shot, a “character” shot, a commercial product shot, and more.

As you age, remember to take out your younger pictures and replace them with current pictures. As much as models hate it, we all age. Having a modeling portfolio full of pictures from ten years ago will not do much to help your career today.

Make a good first and last impression by putting your best images at the beginning and end of your modeling portfolio. All of your images should be good, but put your favorites first and last.

Unless you are selling jewelry or the jewelry is important to the photograph, avoid too much jewelry in at least one of your headshots. This gives your potential clients a photograph where you are the focus, not the jewelry.

Try to include at least one black and white photograph in your modeling portfolio. Color images are most prevalent today, but a black and white photograph will add something special.

Consider including a resume of your professional modeling assignments as part of your modeling portfolio.

Perfect Makeup Tips for Teens

Makeup advice for teenagers and young teen models: Makeup adds to your already natural beauty and helps to highlight your best features.  However it is important that you use this tool correctly and not to over-do it.  Often it is a good policy to ask an adult female for advice, such as your mom or older sibling.  You might be surprised how much experience and wisdom can come from years of applying makeup!

To help get you started we have listed 6 tips for the perfect makeup for young teens.

1.  Skincare Prep: As a daily routine you should always keep your skin clean and clear.  This is especially important before applying makeup.  Also be sure to moisturize your skin.  The best skincare products will cleanse your skin without being too abrasive and will help to keep your pores clear.  Always finish your skincare regimen with a light moisturizer to hydrate and prep your face for makeup application.

2.  Foundation and Concealer: In most cases less is more, so keep that in mind when applying makeup.  Also foundation is a personal preference and it may not be the right choice for you.  The reason for this is that foundation can sometimes feel and look heavy.  Concealer is your best option for quick fixes and cover-ups, such as unexpected zits that may pop up overnight.  Be sure to choose a color that best matches your tone, then lightly dab (using a cotton swab) the areas you wish to conceal.

3.  Blush: When using blush be sure to go with a natural looks.  Blush is used on your cheeks and therefore it is important to avoid any colors that do not match your skin tone.  Try using a lightly colored bronzer for a subtle sun-kissed touch or a light pink rosy color to accentuate your natural glow. Lightly brush blush over your cheeks and finish with lighter coverage on the bridge of your nose and your forehead.

4. Eyeshadow and Liner:  Eyeshadow is a great way to bring out your eye color and draw attention to your eyes. Select a natural shade with a bit of shimmer for an everyday look (be careful not to over-do it). Brown and hazel eyes look best in warmer colors like copper and gold. Brown and green eyes really stand out with gray- and plum-colored shadows. You can also use eyeliner to accentuate your eyes, but the less-is-more rule also applies here. Use light gray and brown eyeliners to start off.

5. Mascara: A little mascara to darken your lashes is a great way to call attention to your eyes. Do you have pretty blue eyes? Frame them with a dark brown mascara. Dark eyes? Opt for a slightly darker mascara shade. To make your lashes look lifted, use an eyelash curler at the root of your upper lashes and hold it for five seconds. Then wiggle your mascara wand in an upward motion through the lashes.  By using the correct techniques on your eyes you can really make an impression.

6. Lipgloss:
 To finish off your makeup apply some lipgloss. This will provide a light and natural look while also adding a shimmery glow. You can even use a lightly colored lip stain for a look that needs no re-applying. Pick a neutral pink or tan color. Apply the stain to your lips and wait for it to dry. You can finish the look with a clear lipgloss.

It takes time to create a look that works best for you, but practice makes perfect. Just aim for bringing out a more beautiful you by accentuating your best features. In time you will have a perfect technique!

Teen Models and Benefits of Becoming a Model

This is further exacerbated by stereotypes pushed by our media and artificial expectation of beauty. Photoshopping is has become an industry standard in the modeling and entertainment business. Nearly anyone pictured on a magazine cover is impossibly perfect. As teen girls gush over guys and stay current on pop culture, body image has naturally become another thing to worry about.

However these pressures can be reduced by teaching your teen valuable skills of self esteem, the ability to handle rejection and the pride of success. Believe it or not such skills can be taught through teen modeling. There are many common stereotypes when it comes to teenage modeling and many are negative. This often includes eating disorders, vanity issues and problems with self esteem. However these are common issues that all teen girls face regardless of their participation in modeling events. Therefore it is important to face these issues head on and teach your teen the proper way to deal with them.

Teen modeling can help your daughter learn valuable skills that will help her throughout her teen years and as she becomes an adult. However it is first important to lay the groundwork for a success and confident teenager. One of the first lessons is to teach your daughter the importance of self love and acceptance. Regardless of what the glossy pop culture magazine may tell us, we are not born with perfect bodies. It is important for your daughter to learn this and to accept herself and be proud of who she is.

While you may think that teen modeling would only encourage negative stereotypes, the fact is often the opposite. There are tremendous benefits, including the ability to deal with competition, overcoming shyness and following instructions. Teen girls also learn to become leaders and often go on to have better speaking and interpersonal skills. Teens can learn to work hard and handle both success and defeat with grace.

Modeling is about confidence and the ability to deal with stressful and ever changing situations with grace and skill.

If your daughter wishes to become a model then the next step is finding the right avenue to begin this new adventure. Often teens are very busy with school, friends and extracurricular activities. This can raise the question, how can you help your daughter become successful at teen modeling when you go to school every day, work a part-time job, and play sports? Well the good news is you don’t have to go to New York City to get discovered. In fact finding a place to represent you as a model can be mush easier then you may think, thanks to the internet.

However there are new ways to become a model and ‘get discovered’ and enter the world of teen modeling through online model portfolio websites and social networking. These sites are often free and have a world-wide audience. In fact many modeling jobs, events and casting calls can now be applied for online.

In fact many jobs can even be done from your home town thanks to digital imagery. Often teen models can work with local photographers to produce the required images and send the images to the companies or clients. This is a new trend in online modeling. In the past modeling was very expensive as you often had to travel to modeling events, pay model agencies and hire photographers to produce the content. However with the convenience of today’s internet most jobs are now ‘outsourced’ to models from all over the world and do not require travel.

The key is to find an online modeling website that caters to online teen models.

Another crucial component of teen modeling is exposure. This can be enhanced through social media such as Facebook and YouTube. Professional online modeling websites often provide this as a free additional service. Basically this means that once you register as a model the modeling website will promote your portfolio to their existing client and through various social media channels. Many people may not be aware of this, but most viral videos are actually marketing tactics from companies that hire teen models. This is a big change since the old days of physical agencies. With today’s technology your teen’s portfolio can be viewed and promoted instantly all over the world!

You may be wondering what type of jobs are available to teen models. Well the opportunities and job types are practically endless and change with current pop-culture.

The Benefits of Child Modeling

When it comes to child modeling you may think that overbearing moms and spoiled kids are the biggest obstacles; but the truth is there are many variables to consider. There can be both positive and negative effects, including eating disorders, self-esteem issues and the perceived over-emphasis on appearance that a modeling career can bring. However, modeling can also be a very positive influence on a child if properly guided. There are tremendous benefits, including the ability to deal with competition, overcoming shyness and following instructions. Young girls also learn to become leaders and often go on to have better speaking and interpersonal skills.

Child modeling is very competitive and there are often more models than there are jobs. Many agencies receive hundreds of submissions every month and only a small fraction go on to receive commercial modeling assignments. This may seem a bit depressing, but there is always a chance that your child can become successful in this industry. Even if an actual paid modeling gig is not received there are still a great deal of benefits to being a model. The key is to be consistent and attend casting calls, beauty pageants, keep an up to date portfolio and apply for as many jobs as possible. You may also consider applying your child for an online modeling contest. This is an additional way to have some fun, gain exposure and perhaps win cash!

Recently the media has depicted child modeling as a dangerous and potentially harmful activity. However this is not the case. Despite the hype, research from North Carolina State University shows that competition can actually be beneficial, helping your child hone problem-solving skills and learn to win and lose gracefully. The key is for parents to “stress the basics of fair play, good sportsmanship and putting forth good effort.” In fact, modeling can teach children many valuable life lessons – but proper guidance is from parents is essential to making this work.

Many children struggle with shyness and this can be a barrier later in life. It affects the ability of the child to make friends and even land a job as they become an adult. Modeling can help a child out of her shell and learn to become comfortable working with others. This includes competing, working with photographers and attending casting calls and working with other models in beauty pageants. Each event can be an opportunity to teach your child to speak clearly, walk tall and smile. These skills will help your child throughout her life.

Children can also learn valuable skills in regards to money management. As a child model there is money to be made and you can reward your child with a percentage of her earnings from each modeling job and this will teach her how to save money and spend it responsibly. Learning the value of hard work and the importance of saving and spending is another important lesson that will serve your child as she becomes an adult. This lesson also reinforces the importance of a good work ethic and the benefits from doing a good job.

As we all know young children often have difficulty following directions and this is a very important lesson. In the modeling industry models are expected to work together, wait their turn and listen carefully to the photographer’s instructions. Each casting call, photo shoot and modeling event have different requirements and your child will have to adjust to each situation. Be sure to compliment your child on her photo shoots, not by referring to her looks, but by praising her attentiveness to direction and willingness to listen. Soon your child will gain a great sense of pride from her accomplishments and this leads to a child that is able to follow directions and adapt quickly to any situation.

The ability to handle rejection is also a very important lesson that every child must learn. There are times in everyone’s life that we experience this and it is important to learn to accept it, work harder and succeed. Rejection may seem like a harsh lesson for a child to learn, but it’s crucial to understanding the concept and learning to cope. If learned correctly rejection leads to the desire to work even harder. It is important to praise your child regardless of the outcome and let her know that you are proud of her.

Young children can also benefit from the competition of modeling by learning to relax. We have all been under stress in our lives and it is important to understand how to handle that stress. This lesson will help your child in school and in work. When mistakes happen, be a relaxed role model and don’t overreact. Instead, encourage having fun while trying your best. Practice breathing techniques focuses on positive thoughts. Learning to cope with stress is a very important lesson that will help your child throughout her entire life.

Contrary to what many may think modeling is not all about looks. It is about confidence and the ability to conduct yourself with grace and self-esteem. Children look to adults for guidance, therefore if you emphasize looks, your child will too. Instead, focus on being professional – saying “please”” and “thank you,” being punctual, waiting quietly and listening. Believe it or not behavior is often more important than appearance. Don’t be pushy, pester the casting agents or criticize the other children. Avoid focus on landing the job or online modeling contest, and help your child enjoy the experience for what it is.

It is also important to avoid common stereotypes when it comes to a model’s accepted appearance. Most people think models are skinny and to much emphasis on this can lead to eating disorders. Instead focus on healthy eating and exercise habits. Teach your child to be proud of herself and to respect her body. This will lead to a healthy self image that will increase her chance of a happy and successful life.

It is also important to always be aware of your motives in regards to child modeling. Is this your dream or your child’s? It is ok to provide motivation and even a little ‘push’, but make sure you let your child know that the goal of becoming a model must be her dream and you love her regardless of her decision in this matter.
