Model Portfolio for Darion Griggs
Model Portfolio One Session with Darion was shot in studio and on location. This is a great starting package as well as Portfolio Two Session. Portfolio One Session includes two looks, meaning wardrobe 100-150 images to choose from, and digital negatives the day of the session. Model portfolios should look natural. I like to refer to it like a blank canvas. Just think if a model can look great naturally, just imagine all the other things you can do. That’s what makes a good portfolio for those just starting out.
I direct my clients to bring a selection of items from their closets from dressy, casual, to workout attire. I have a few items here in my prop closet as well to include when necessary. In some cases I’ll hire a stylist and makeup artist as well, but it all depends on the clients budget. If a model is comfortable with doing their own makeup that is fine, however I highly recommend a makeup artist. Having a professional makeup artist provides cleaner images and less need for retouching. There’s a difference between good makeup work and bad makeup work also. This is critical to keep in mind. Darion however had flawless skin, so we lucked out in the retouching department.
I really enjoyed working with Darion. He was easy to direct and very natural on camera. I am looking forward to see where his career goes to next. I wish him all the luck in the world. He also has no tattoos and in today’s world I find that to be rare.
