What can you do to increase your odds of getting noticed and landing jobs that will expand your portfolio and get you on your way in the industry?
If you are merely modeling for a shoot with a hired photographer to build a portfolio in order to start your career ( Getting Started as a Lingerie Model ), you are probably supplying or selecting your own garments for the occasion. For these kinds of shoots, there are a few things to keep in mind.
First of all, you may want to take the time to look around where to buy from ( Top 5 Websites In Australia To Buy Lingerie ) and then consider to demonstrate more than one look, so bring a couple of items with varying design and flavor. If your first option is daring and vivid, make your second look demure and subtle. Show that you have beauty, body and range.
Second, know your strengths and flaws ( What Colour Lingerie suits me best ), and choose your garments accordingly. Know your skin tones and consider the color of your eyes. When at all possible, select lingerie that will help you put the accent on your finer points and that will complement your natural beauty.
Remember that this industry is full of beautiful women, and what agencies and lingerie brands are looking for is the unique, personal quality of beauty you can bring. Don’t dress to emulate; dress to accentuate.
If you are just building your portfolio, avoid wearing elaborate or obscuring garments and costumes that prevent potential clients from assessing your figure. Racy isn’t mandatory, but body-defining is.
On the other hand, if you are dressing to attend a shoot for a client, the most important thing to keep in mind is to wear comfortable, loose-fitting clothes that won’t leave creases or marks on your skin. Be clean and professional and ready to work!
