Model Portfolios Photography
A great model portfolio requires a variety of photographs that showcase your versatility and chameleon-like abilities to transform from stylish to edgy. We aim to present your best features in the most flattering light. In order to create a diverse portfolio, we do in-studio photos, as well as travel to various locations throughout the city. Our goal is to give you a combination of beautiful, natural headshots, edgier and artistic shots, as well as glamorous high-fashion shots. We can also cater to the needs of a lifestyle model portfolio and work with you to create lifestyle sets.
(G1) The Model Portfolio “Starter” Package
One Outfit. A good choice for the beginner model, or for the professional model requiring an updated photo. Includes one great high res, retouched image of your choice on disc, one 11x14 print (or smaller), and up to 1 hour in studio. Also includes all viewer proofs on a disc: these are images, large enough to view on your computer, from which you can choose your favourites.
(G2) The Model Portfolio “Double Threat” Package
Two outfits. Two great high res, retouched images of your choice on disc, two 11x14 prints (or smaller), and up to 1.5 hours in studio. Also includes all viewer proofs on a disc: these are images, large enough to view on your computer, from which you can choose your favourites.
(G3) The Model Portfolio “Triple Threat” Total Package
Three outfits. Perfect for a complete portfolio and a variety of looks. We endeavour to make all looks as distinct as possible from one another, using different locations, backdrops, lighting, outfits, makeup and hair. Includes three great high res, retouched images of your choice on disc, three 11x14 prints (or smaller), and up to 2 hours in studio. Also includes all viewer proofs on a disc: these are images, large enough to view on your computer, from which you can choose your favourites.
All packages can be customized, more time (and more looks) can be added at additional fee if needed, or you can add on outfits – just give us a call for a quote!

For a polished and professional portrait, we recommend both our male and female clients to hire a professional makeup artist. Modern digital camera technology paired with pro lenses pick up even minute flaws not visible to the naked eye. Retouching can be expensive, thus the cost of a makeup artist is worth every penny, and can be more economical in the long run. We have a professionally trained makeup artist, who has been working with us for close to 10 years. She always creates a flawless canvas, yet very natural result. Our clients are always pleased with their decision to hire her.
Modern digital technology picks up the appearance of skin (pores, lines, scars) with hyper-real precision. Our approach is to naturally retouch your favourite images, so that the skin appears as it would in person, in real-life, as opposed to under a microscope. We strive to maintain skin texture and typically erase “temporary” skin conditions such as blemishes, and only soften the looks of lines, scars, wrinkles, rather than completely erase these marks of character. In special cases, where applicable or by your request, heavy-handed retouching can be used; however, we discourage this, as in most cases it’s important to present an accurate representation of the subject. In any case, our preferred method is emphasizing your best features, whether it is your eyes, hair or smile. We typically naturally brighten teeth 1-2 shades, unless you request otherwise.
