- Assemble a Starting Portfolio
Before you can start knocking on celebrity or any other doors for glamour photography or fashion photography gigs, you’ll need to assemble as professional a portfolio as you possibly can by any (legal and ethical) means necessary. Where are you going to do your photo shoots? Decide on a place or two or three.
Now think about some useful “props" that might come in handy. These needn’t be expensive or bulky. Some suggestions include: colorful scarves, baseball caps, small toys, dolls, large and small teddy bears, imitation fruits, a hand mirror, a telephone, a selection of sunglasses, newspapers, nylon stockings, reading glasses without glass lenses in them, a variety of plain and fancy hair clips, inflatable beach ball, musical instruments (flute, trumpet, guitar, harmonica), glass tumblers, vases...the list could go on and on. Hopefully you’ll come up with some useful ideas on your own too.
