If you’re wondering why it’s so important to update your modelling portfolio pictures, here’s why:
You keep it fresh and relevant
Documenting your current look is important as when looking to get noticed, clients want to see you as you are, right now. It’s lovely to stumble across cute throwbacks but clients ideally do not want to step back in time and see who you were many moons ago.
As a natural progression of time, our looks change and even though we may not have a dramatic physical alteration, clients don’t want to feel left out. Fill in any missing pieces of your story by snapping up images dedicated to your portfolio every couple of months.
As humans, we encourage personal development and versatility. However, we evolve. Catch this evolution on time so that clients can see how you’ve adapted to changing trends or if you’ve established your own. Your style, your way, and your changes are what make you special. Capture these stages and be proud of who you are.
If you keep your images up to date, this will demonstrate your commitment to your craft. This will impress clients as they will see how you’ve dedicated your time and that you’re serious about establishing your work and career prospects. This also reveals your ability to manage your time, and for any particularly unique pieces, shows that you enjoy thinking out-of-the-box.
