Should I get a website for my modeling portfolio?
If you are independent, it’s not a bad idea. Here are some tips:
- Learn SEO (Search Engine Optimization). It doesn’t do you much good if your website can’t be found.
- Avoid flash, especially flash entries. Let client’s get to what they want to see immediately.
- Don’t make yourself out to be famous, it’s pompous and unfriendly. Not to mention, if they are looking for a celebrity they aren’t going to hire you anyway.
- Avoid big credits’ lists. Just add a note that says “conflicts upon request”. Your tear sheets need to do the talking on that subject.
Remember that there is no substitute for a modeling agency.
