What makes a model unique?

The most important element to a modelling career is being yourself, let your personality shine through your work! I’m sure a lot of you express your personality and interests through your social media accounts like FacebookInstagram or Twitter. So adopt the same method with your account.

Including head-shots and Polaroids in your portfolio will outline your facial features, so extenuate your natural beauty. Take a look at our gorgeous Jasmin who has a range of Polaroids that are both stunning and natural… sometimes less really is more.

The clothing and style you grasp in your portfolio shoots will also outline your personality. Therefore, if you are trying to attract specific clientele or portray an eccentric fashion image you should be selective with your clothing and background choice. Make sure to create an atmospheric feel to your pictures that clearly defines your style, interests and personality traits.


Many successful models have photos from shoots with a unique location or background, as well as lighting. This grants the need for unusual clothing and make up as well as distinct posture or attitude- allowing you to stand out from the crowd.
