Limit Photos You Submit for a Model Audition

For modeling auditions, it is better to limit the number of photos a "decision maker" sees to only the few that get your point across. There is no exact number. Only include your best photos. You are only as good as your weakest photo. This means it does not help you to include as many photos as possible. Only show your best.

Showing Parts

Let's say you have a photo in which your legs look great, but your chest looks small. The casting dircetor may see that photo and think your chest is small. In this case, it would have been better to include a photo that only showed your legs. (You face does not need to appear in every image.)


Quantity Based On Your Assets

Let say there are two models, Josh and Chris. Josh has an incredible back and lats but has skinny legs. Chris has good legs and pecs.

Both should include a good face shot (also called a headshot), a full body shot, and side view (that is 3 pics so far).

Josh will include a total of six photos (the 3 basic pics plus a photo of his back only and another of his lats closeup).

Chris will only include 4 (3 basic pics plus a photo of his legs only).

You need to show your assets, but do not submit too many pics.

  • Shoot Prep

    After working with thousands of new models and college students, we know the concerns, issues and questions many new models have before their first photo shoot. It is normal for even the most macho guy to be nervous prior to his first shoot. We compiled all this training info into “ShootPrep” – our dedicated site for training models with whom we work.

    Our photographer uses to train new models before their photo sessions.
