With an extensive knowledge of the modelling industry, we understand that your portfolio isn’t just a collection of random pictures but that it should reflect your strengths as a model, whilst showcasing those features that make you unique! With our team of expert make-up artists, hair stylists and fashion photographers, you can be confident of attaining a portfolio that showcases these principles.

For new models embarking on creating their first portfolio, one of our many goals is to ensure that your portfolio doesn’t reflect that it was done in one session. We achieve this by using a combination of industry techniques such as having a choice of backdrops/themes, diverse outfits, hair and make-up changes and lighting techniques that emphasise our proficiency.

Models have the option to shoot in our fully equipped fashion photography studio or at a variety of exotic international destinations such as Iceland, Bali, Santorini, Maldives etc through our sister company; My Paradise Shoot. Simply click here to find out more.

Being the proud owner of a superb portfolio isn’t the magical pill you need to achieve success as a model. With our workshop services, we delve into the nitty gritty on how to become a successful model!  Covering topics such as ‘How To Get Published In Magazines’, ‘Becoming A Social Media Fashion Influencer’, ‘Making Money As A Freelance Model’, ‘How To Get Agency Represented’ and so much more!

We provide portfolio and workshop services to new and established –
