Miss England Portfolio Photographer


Tarleton Photography is the North West portfolio photographer for the Miss England competitions which include Miss Lancashire, Miss Cumbria and Miss Southport!


Knowing the purpose for your portfolio shoot is always crucial, for example a portfolio tailored to commercial and ecommerce would be completely different from a pageant entry portfolio.



Model Portfolio Photographer


What do I need to become a model?


A model portfolio is an investment and the most important tool to get professional work. A photoshoot will give you the chance to see if it is an investment worth making.


Just as you would have a strong CV for a job interview, a strong portfolio is ultimately your modelling CV and will show your skills and workability in front of the camera. Without a professional portfolio of varying images, it is almost impossible to be put forward for castings. Agencies will need to know that you have the confidence and natural ability in front of the camera before finding you paid work.


A model portfolio is a collection of professional images and your portfolio must say something about you, agencies don’t want to see pretty images, they want to see attitude, personality and ultimately how versatile you can be. This is why it is important to choose a photographer that is experienced and will take images that best represent you.


How do I find Modelling jobs?


The most common way to find modelling jobs is to get signed to an agency. We recommend Casting Agency. Agencies represent models and they match their client’s brief with a suitable model for the job. Getting signed to an agency is hard work in itself as you need to have the right look, personality, availability and statistics. Once you are signed, you are professionally represented. However, this does not mean that you are guaranteed work.


Types of Images


Digital images


In this digital age, it is more important than ever to have digital copies of your images. They are used on the agency website and can be emailed to clients to promote yourself unlike prints which cannot be copied due to copyright laws. Digital images also allow for additional retouching, re-sizing and cropping where you or your agency see fit.


Prints


Prints are a crucial element of being a model, keeping an up to date professional portfolio book with you for all interviews can make the difference between being booked for that next Boohoo shoot with your agency.


Just like your digital images your printed portfolio is a collection of varied professional images that need to say something about you, agencies don’t want to just see pretty images, they want to see your personality, attitude and ultimately how versatile you can be.


Our Portfolio Shoots start from £120 featuring digital images but you also upgrade to include a professional & personalised A4 Portfolio Book for an extra £200
