Model head shots

Surround yourself with photographers who have your best interests at heart to help you in your career

There are a couple of ways to get your modelling career started but firstly you do need a portfolio containing incredible images that will get you noticed. 

One way is to join modelling groups on Facebook, but this leaves you vulnerable to working with photographers with a variety of experiences. 

Unfortunately, I see almost daily examples of models posting into groups warning other models why they should avoid certain photographers. 

At LA Photography you will be under the guidance of Laine Allen, a multi International award winning photographer who is fully Accredited with the Australian Institute of Professional Photography. 

I have also worked with models around the world.

What a successful model portfolio should have

Your modelling portfolio should be considered your resume for approaching Agencies or others whom you wish to be your ideal client. 

To elevate yourself above the rest, you need a printed portfolio.


Anyone can take some great digital images of themselves but nothing beats seeing a professional resume in print.

The following are the basics of which most Agencies would require:

~ Headshots with no makeup or retouching.

~ Headshots with complete makeover and hair styling of the following:

1/ Full body images in colour.

2/ Full body images in black and white. 

3/ Head shots (shoulders and up) in colour. 

4/ Head shots (shoulders and up) in black and white. 

From there, you would wish to think about the type of work you are wanting to attract and dress accordingly. Examples include;

~ Corporate/ professional look.

~ Bridal- see more of this HERE.

~ Fashion- see more of this (beauty) HERE.

~ Swimwear.
