Our Portfolios

Are you eager to become a model but don’t know where to begin?

A portfolio is an essential tool for a model to gain professional work. It is a collection of professionally shot images that is ultimately your visual modeling CV used to advertise your skills and abilities in front of the camera.

Although professional images are not needed to apply to agencies a portfolio is something that they will need to market you in the future and you can use to market yourself to freelance opportunities. It is almost impossible to be put forward for or apply to castings without one, as agents and casting directors will want to see that you have the confidence, experience and natural ability in front of the camera before offering you paid work.

How to create a professional portfolio

A model portfolio is a collection of professional images and your portfolio must say something about you, agencies don’t want to see pretty images, they want to see attitude, personality and ultimately how versatile you can be. Get a professional model portfolio tailored to your personal needs.

How can Manhattan Models help?

Here at Manhattan Models you can register with a recent clear image to find out if you show model potential and gain free advice and guidance on how to progress your modelling career.

We have trained New Face consultants who can offer you the chance to visit a top New York studio in order to assess your potential in front of a professional fashion photographer.

In doing so we may possibly be able to offer the opportunity to your very own professional model portfolio. A model portfolio is always an investment and an assessment photo shoot with Manhattan Models will give you the chance to see if it is an investment worth making.



Our goal is to support, advise & instil confidence in everyone who visits us.

I have to say we were blown away at the quality of the images and how professional and helpful your staff are. We were greeted and made to feel very welcome and Lily was treated like a star from start to finish.”

  • “Our visit today was absolutely PHENOMENAL! The experience was all in all WONDERFUL! I can not wait for Dayra to start working with you. I am so excited for what this is going to bring her. I have never seen her so excited to be doing something like this, Dayra doesn't show a lot of excitement, so on our way home to see her smile the way she was about this was blowing my mind! I thank you for everything! The makeup artist and photographer just made our day the were AMAZING as well!!”
