Actors & Model Portfolio Advice

Why good portfolios are important

 Your acting modeling photos are your selling point. They are your one of the best chance to make a great first photographic impression. A casting director will make judgments about your personality, your professionalism, your eye for detail, and your level of expertise based on what they see in your photos.  It doesn’t matter if you have 5 years of acting modeling experience if that experience isn’t reflected in your photographs. Conversely, you can have very little or no modeling experience, but if your photographs have “wow factor”, people will be more likely to want to work with you. 

 

If you were a casting director  looking for talent, who would you pick, the aspiring model with mediocre photos or the model whose images really catch your eye?

Putting “snapshots” in a gallery online and calling it a “portfolio” does not make you a model. Be critical. Get good photos. Avoid representing yourself with photos that do not accurately reflect your potential and level of expertise. photography studio and portrait photographer in Mumbai, Navi Mumbai, Thane

Modeling as a business. Why you should invest in yourself.

 If your business is to be a model and actor, then you will need to put in the time, money, and effort in order to be successful. Modeling is work and business is an investment. If this means having to pay a portrait photographer to in order to get attention-grabbing photos, then it is something you should absolutely consider.

 You will need a strong portfolio (which is built up by working with strong photographers). The more experience you gain as a model and the better your portfolio looks, the more legitimate and more seriously you will be taken by clients and photographers.

Why acting modeling portfolio involves more than just good looks.

 You are unique. Just like everyone else.

Many aspiring model actors feel that only “beautiful” & "handsome" individual can make big in the Mumbai film industry bollywood and  TV and entertainment industry, but the fact is now a days entertainment industry has grown so much that every good talent has the opportunity to see the lime light of the glamour and entertainment industry, what you require is hard or rather smart work to reach the places.  But at the same time, you need to position yourself in a way that advances your career and uses all of your available resources to your advantage.


 A single photo could get you exposure leading to countless more paid acting & modeling  opportunities. 

What models should know about casting agencies.

 

Casting modeling agencies and model-actor coordinators help represent and “sell” models to potential clients. You are essentially a “product” that the casting agency has the responsibility to sell by connecting you with paying jobs.

Once you have your acting & modeling portfolio than share those images to the different actor casting agencies and coordinators. Signing with a modeling agency can also be beneficial to your career. Not only does signing with an agency help you appear more legitimate as a model, it will also provide opportunities that might not otherwise become available to you. Many agencies are provided with access to casting calls and auditions etc. that do not exist anywhere else.

 When an agency finds you work, it is generally at a cost of a 20% commission of whatever the client is willing to pay you for a job. 

 With regard to commissions, while they can encourage agencies to find you more and higher-paying jobs, this relationship can also pose a bit of a problem.

This problem becomes apparent when some casting agencies may turn down paid work for you if it doesn’t make them enough money. A photographer may desire to work with you and offer 20000 INR a shoot to do so. In return, an agency may demand for a shoot 50000 INR from the photographer for your time.  While there are some good acting and modeling agencies in Mumbai and some not-so-good agencies in existence, it is important to keep in mind that they all tend to work based on that one simple need, to make money. If an agency sees the potential to make money off of you (or from you), they will sign you. And while signing with an agency may sound like a favourable proposition, this is not always the case.  As a general rule, it is a good idea to avoid any agencies that also have a “school” attached to them. What these agencies will do is convince you that if you take the classes they provide (at your own expense), you will much more likely realize your full potential as a model and actor. These classes, however, are generally a waste of time and will not offer anything over getting actual real-world experience by working with real-life photographers. As I mention above, the main way an agency makes money is by finding you work. If they need to supplement their income by requiring you pay for “extras”, then it is not very likely they are finding many models work.

If it sounds too good to be true, it probably is.

 

The Bollywood and TV.  industry in Mumbai is full of people who will tell you just about anything that they think you want to hear in order to get what they want.

The industry is also full of people who are, in fact, honest, trustworthy, worth working with, people who mean what they say, and are also willing to help you attain your goals. The hard part is differentiating between the two. Again, your most valuable asset is your brain.


 Is a portrait photographer promising you for work and break into the film and entertainment industry? 

99% chances are... he/she is lying. All the upcoming actors model must understand that generally (most of the cases) no photographer can lend you a good acting or modeling assignment if you go for modeling portfolio session with him or her. Any commercial photographer job is to present you utmost professional manner through visual manner (modeling acting portfolio). An experienced photographer can guide you the right way how to approach your career an actor and model in the Mumbai entertainment industry. At the best a photographer can provide you the list of genuine casting agencies and model coordinators to whom you can share your portfolio. Photography studio, Mumbai, Navi Mumbai, Thane


Questions that models should ask photographers.


 Knowledge is power and your safety is important. Below are a number of questions to ask portrait photographers and things to be aware of prior to working with a photographer… 


 Ask where the photographer shoots. If he works in a photography studio, is it a dedicated studio or is it a home studio? What is the environment like? Is there easy access to a changing room, mirror, and bathroom? Is there easy access to parking? 

 how long is the shoot expected to last? 

 How many photographs can you expect from a shoot? Does the photographer provide prints? 

 How many different looks & outfit changes are you allowed? 

 Is a make-up and hair stylist artist provided? 

 

OTHER THINGS TO BE AWARE OF

In most cases, a photographer should rarely have any reason to make physical contact with a model. In the event some type of contact is necessary, it should be clear how this is to be communicated to the model. I personally make it a point to announce & ask permission to make any kind of contact with a model prior to doing so. This leaves very little room for misinterpretation and makes it very clear that all contact is necessary & purely professional. Photography Studio in Mumbai Navi Mumbai Thane.
