When will I need my modeling portfolio?
You’ll be taking your modeling portfolio almost everywhere you go. Client meetings, castings/auditions, and anytime you go meet with an agency. It’s even a good idea to bring it with on jobs as reference for photographers. It shows what you are skilled at, and can even spark ideas in some cases.
You’ll want to keep more than one copy of anything you put in your modeling portfolio in case you lose it. Especially tear sheets as they are very difficult to come by later if you lose one.
Your modeling portfolio will be indispensable, especially as it grows.
