What is a Model-Portfolio?

A modeling portfolio is a set of pictures the model will submit to an agency or potential client. This is often your only chance to make a good impression, so it is vital that a professional, high quality portfolio is presented. Your chances of making a lasting impression in the minds of the client are greatly increased with a good photographer, who has the necessary skill in lighting to suit your bone structure and directing you to depict your strengths and disguise the weaknesses.
