Modeling Portfolios in New York

modeling portfolio photography New York City

For many people, gaining a professional modeling portfolio is the first step into the industry, and it is often the only impression that a model gives to talent agencies or headhunters.
Your modeling portfolio will essentially be your resume throughout your modeling career. It’s a collection of images (usually headshots and full body shots) that will show off the experience you have as a model and the type of work you specialize in (“alt modeling,” fashion magazines, etc.). The more variety of work you demonstrate in your portfolio, the more likely you are to land a job.

With Joyce Anderson, you are sure to build a quality portfolio that accentuates the best of you and your modeling career in every page.
