Close Up Models...

are based in the small rural town of Stalbridge, Dorset.
The business is handcrafted to offer high quality photographic services to models and individuals who are looking for creative images, amazing photography, make up and hair styling.

If you have any questions...

it would be great to talk.

A strong portfolio opens doors, a weak portfolio closes them. Your portfolio is often the only thing a person sees before deciding whether or not to contact and commission you, and in many cases you may not be present to explain it.
There are fundamental qualities that all outstanding portfolios should share, and a variety of principals and techniques that can help take your portfolio from average to excellent. If at all possible, your portfolio should be appropriate to the situation and reviewer, and all portfolios should show creativity, skills, range, thought, and ambition. It is the overall combination of these things, plus that "special something," that makes Close Up Models stand above other model portfolio studios.
