How to make your own modeling-portfolio!!!

Hi everybody...;)
Today I want to show you, how you can make your very own modeling-portfolio... it will help you, to let yourself look more professional, when you  apply for a modeling-job or even for a modeling-competition;)
A Portfolio should show your Client, what experiences you collected during the time... 

So at first you have to create an own Blog on "blogger" or "wordpress" ... the easiest way would be to use the blogger account, you're also applying with... Give your blog a name, which directly indicates that it is your own portfolio... examples: "nickname-Portfolio.blogspot.com" or "Portfolio-of-nickname.blogspot.com" ....

If you are ready with creating this Blog, makes sure that the blog looks as simple and elegant as it's possible and don't overload it with Colurs and Extras... a plain white background and a simple, elegant banner are entirely sufficient.

At the very beginning following pictures are the most important part of your Portfolio:
- one Pic of your Dolls Face with Make-Up
- one Pic of your Dolls Face complety without make-up

Pay attention, that the hairstyle fits to your face-shape and that its not too much make-up

If your ready with that, you have to collect Graphics of your Me-Doll.... You can take all Pics from your modeling-jobs... if you have modeled for magazines, or on a catwalk
I have made some Graphics on my own... but take care that they look professional... If you can't make Graphics on your own, try your look with the Portfolio-Agency I wrote about, or simply wait, till you had your first modeling-jobs...
You should iclude the link of your portfolio in your applications... so if there are questions like "Do you have any modeling experiences? Yes?-where?" or if the Clients want to see Headshots of your Doll simply post, that you've got a modeling-portfolio, post the link and ask them, to look at your pics there...

It isn't that comlicated;) 
If you have any questions... ask me in the comments

Here are some links to look on modeling-portfolios...
- Portfolio of model with not that many orders
- Portfolio of model with a looot of orders

Additional Considerations:
- never, neeeever use images that do not represent you
- don't change your faceshapes to often... it doesn't look good to your clients... when they don't recognize you at the pics...
