This photoshoot was a beauty make-up portfolio photoshoot for my make-up artist Marthe Neus, with lovely model Isabelle (not her real name), who modelled for me before in an artistic photoshoot. Considering my first 'Posing for Photography, How to pose for a photoshoot' video was so well received, and I still receive many questions about modeling every week (And even long distance PHONECALLS from people! o.O), I decided to make a second video about posing as a beauty model.
When you are new to modeling, you first priority is to build a good portfolio. Diversity in your portfolio is great: If you can show you are a versatile model, you might get booked for more jobs. In my first Posing for Photography video I focused on fashion modeling and posing, while in this video it's all about portrait photography; especially beauty modeling, and how your portfolio should look. I'll share some tips and tricks on how to work your body, the camera, and posing in different angles.
Posing for photography, especially beauty posing, is all about looking enchanting and, yes, beautiful!! Beauty modeling isn't about how 'hot' your body is or how much more chic you look than someone else, this is what glamour and fashion photography are for. In Beauty modeling it's all about selling an extraordinary person; a beautiful being. Beauty is about the skin, the shape of the face, the eyes, lips, hair.. A true beauty portrait is a dream & you should almost be able to smell it, because it's visually so alluring, your whole brain and other senses just get enchanted by it ;).
