16 Aug Model Portfolio Development | NYREE
Model portfolio development is important for building a successful modeling career. The portfolio should show variety and versatility. This makes the model more desirable for a wider range of jobs.
When I did this shoot for Nyree aka Slimm she was relatively new to modeling, but you wouldn’t know it. She is such a natural and is very comfortable taking direction in front of the camera. It is no surprise that a month after this shoot she was walking in London Fashion Week.
Because Nyree was a new model she wanted to work on adding to her portfolio. Her first modeling shoot was mostly outdoors with a variety of looks featuring long hair using wigs. To give her portfolio broader appeal we focused on studio work. I chose a neutral beige background in order to highlight Nyree’s naturally beautiful caramel toned skin.
For Nyree’s model portfolio development, I wanted to show off her natural hair, since her previous shoot used wigs. Hairstylist Heather is a absolute pro with all different hair textures and she did a great job highlighting the beauty of Nyree’s natural hair texture. Each style was so different showing her versatility while being absolutely stunning.
It was such a pleasure working with Nyree and I am thrilled for her success she has since walked in London Fashion Shows and modeled for local brands! This was a great shoot.
