Model Test or Portfolio Shoot

Whether you are an experienced model or performer looking to refresh your book, a new model needing a portfolio to get started in the industry, or an agency wanting a model test, we can help. With our own in-house modern commercial studio complete with large cyclorama we offer a variety of model and performer shoots at very competitive rates. But more important than any rate is the quality of work. We run our model shoots following the same processes and workflows as commercial shoots and all final images are professionally retouched. We also can provide professional hair and make-up, styling, art direction, and training as needed.

What is a Test Shoot?

“Model test shoot” is a phrase that traces back to the early days of fashion photography. Modeling test shoots used to refer exclusively to shoots done without remuneration for the purposes of testing a model, equipment, a location, a concept, and for use exclusively in a portfolio. Nowadays “test shoots” also refer to shoots booked by and paid for by models or modeling agencies with the aim of creating images that extend or enhance a model’s portfolio.

Your Modeling Book

A model’s book is a key tool for winning work and should tell a story about who the model is. It should showcase their qualities, uniqueness and brand, and should show their focus and where they are heading.

A model’s book must be seen as an ever-evolving work-in-progress. The book’s images need continuity and should not just be a collection of photos. It is far better to have fewer high-quality images than many mediocre or unprofessional shots.
