Preparing for your Portfolio Shoot
Many, particularly the young, models come to Kube Studios with a suitcase full of outfits. We advise our customers to bring 3-4 outfits only, because there simply isn't time for so many changes, but we also understand the excitement that surrounds a day in the studio. It's crucial to make sure that your outfits reflect the type of model you want to be represented as - you can't change the photos once they're taken so choose outfits that you know you'll still like in six months time when you're still using the same portfolio. It's a very good idea to have a mixture - eg. 1x trouser suit, 1x dress, 1x skirt/top. For men, a combination of casual, a smart-casual, and a suit tend to give a great, rounded portfolio. If for example your portfolio ends up on the desk of someone looking for a model for a whisky advertisement, a man in a suit will more likely fit the role over one in a t-shirt. It's obvious in that sense, right?
In Kube Studios' experience, the best portfolio days are when the model has chosen a distinct look, and matches the other looks to compliment it. This way, when a scout or manager is leafing through your portfolio, there aren't major differences from one page to the next - nothing jumps out as being out of place.
