o Wear clothes that you are comfortable in. Your clothes should flatter your body type. Choose ones that emphasizes your plus points and camouflages the parts you prefer to hide. For instance, if you have a full figure opt for clothes that skim your body than skin-tight garments. If you are thin or boney, wear layered fabrics that help fill you out a little.

o Take a set of pictures in western wear and another set in casual wear. On the other hand, if you feel something doesn’t suit you, avoid it. For instance, if you don’t look in western clothes it’s best you concentrate more on causal wear. If you look great in most pictures, but a little lousy in two or three pictures, people are most likely going to remember the bad ones.

o But remember, the more looks you have the more the chances are for getting work. If your portfolio consist of only lingerie, then you are most likely to get offers on the same subject. Hence, try to get as many as looks you can.

o Keep your make-up and hair simple but stylish. Do not go overboard. Try out different looks and styles before you take the pictures. Experiment a bit on what suits you and that includes clothes, hair and make-up.
