Whichever you opt for, you will ultimately need the best professional modeling headshots for your modeling portfolio to grow successfully. So, how can you be sure to get the best model headshots?
Finding the Best Modeling Headshot Photographer
If you live in New York, London, or Los Angeles, finding the best modeling headshot photographer is difficult. But, there are many things you can do and must consider, to find one. It starts with some research to make a list.
You should plan on spending 2-3 hours to find a good photographer. You’ll want to start with an online search and organize a list based on reviews. Then, you should further organize the list by those that have the most reviews and also the highest ratings. From this, make a list of around 25 photographers.
Next, see if they have a commercial studio. Some photographers have a home studio or no studio. You may be comfortable working with a photographer without a commercial studio. This is fine but, if not, it’s one way to start reducing the number of photographers on your list.
Do some research on their location and consider how far you’re willing to travel. This should shorten your list. Make your list even shorter by removing photographers on your list that have reviews from only one or two trusted sources and then rank photographers based on their rates. If they don’t list rates, you can inquire later if you think they have compelling work, but, for now, this might reduce your list to around 5-10 photographers.
