How much should I pay for model portfolio?

Some new models ask "How much should I pay for model portfolio?"

The answer is - it depends! You should never pay a makeover studio for a model portfolio or go to a model portfolio company to buy a portfolio to apply to model agencies. Model agencies want to see natural shots and ones you have taken yourself are fine as long as they are clear and show what you look like.

You do not need to spend £1000 on a portfolio as some companies in London would have you believe. If you need to spend money on a photo shoot for a portfolio and are advised to do so by a real model agency (not a fake company selling photos by pretending to be an agency) then they will recommend suitable photographers.

As a rough rule of thumb you can get photos from an amazing photographer for well under £500, many would be able to do the shoot for £300 or so. These would be specific to you and not the standard factory shots you would get from the main London portfolio photo studios.
