Kara's Modeling Portfolio

Many people have dreamed to become a model, but it's not as easy as one would think. Besides the outer beauty and meeting the height and size requirement, a potential model has inner qualities, appealing character, and must be natural in posing in front of the camera.

Although it was her first time, Kara knew the rhythm of her body movement and was all natural during the photo shoot for her modeling portfolio. She even suggested to pose like Wonder Women, and I could see her super power within as she unleashed the energy. Funny that I had just watched the new Wonder Woman movie starring Gal Gadot, and I could see some resemblances.




Comp card for a modeling career

Kelsey came in the studio for a modeling portfolio photo shoot. We begin with headshots in the studio then went outdoor for lifestyle looks in various outfits. I always feel blessed for running a photo studio in the Dogpatch neighborhood. There are countless textures and backgrounds right by the studio for awesome photo backdrops. I love to use the metal gate across the street, the evergreen trees on the sidewalk,  the 22nd Street Caltrain station on the back, and colorful walls in every block. Each element provides a unique backdrop that can be used for high fashion photo looks.  After the photo shoot, Kesley picked out several photos for the comp card. I then designed the comp card for her upcoming audition for modeling agencies. Kelsey's got the look and talent to be an awesome model. Hope to see her on the cover of Vogue magazine soon!

Comp cards are also called composite cards or Zed Cards. They are like business cards for models. Comp cards are essential for self-promotion and provide a higher opportunity for agencies to book the models. Clients browse through comp cards at model agencies for the look they want for commercial, runway, print ads, etc. Comp cards are printed on card stocks and are double-sided. A headshot is usually featured on the front, and 3-4 shots showing a good variety are featured in the back along with model's body weight and measurement. This is an important tool to get gigs and earn money.
