Portfolio Essentials

Here is a guide of the essential shots you should have in your professional look book.


A beauty shot is a colour photograph, generally from the shoulders up. The purpose of this shot is to show the model in his or her most natural state, without heavy makeup or styling. Makeup, hairstyles, and jewelry should be kept to a minimum. Editorial models do not usually smile in a beauty shot. A commercial headshot can be a bit more relaxed. Commercial headshots can be shot in black and white, or color.  ​

A beauty shot or commercial headshot should always be the first photo in a model's book.

The second photo in a model's book should be a full-length body shot. Clothes should be form-fitting and simple. Jeans and a t-shirt are just fine. 

If you are over 16 years of age and are comfortable doing a swimsuit shot, then this should be the next photograph in your book.

When doing a swimsuit shot it is important to always think about the message you are sending. Male models can shoot in either board shorts or boxer shorts. 

Now that you have the first three looks, you can now have some fun. The photos in the middle of your book can be a bit more creative with fashion editorial shots. For these photos you want to show your ability to move and express yourself


Commercial models, including catalog models, need to show their range and ability to express themselves in print. Commercial modeling is really acting in print. Take photos that look like print ads in magazines in which you are laughing, crying, or upset. These are all the types of emotions that we want to see from a new commercial model.

Be sure to add a good smiling headshot. 

It's OK if you don't have perfect teeth. Commercial models don't need to worry about perfect teeth either.

A strong closing shot. Always end with one of your strongest images. Another great beauty or headshot that is a little different from your opening shot.. Most people only remember the very first and very last shot in your book, make sure these are your strongest ones.
