Build the portfolio that will help you get hired.

If you read our Portfolio Review features, you know it’s not always easy to show potential clients what they’re looking for. At Portfolio Panel, we heard directly from experts at Landor, MORTAR, Polly magazine, and BLDG! We found out what they look for when they review your portfolio: how it should be formatted, what they expect from communications, and what type of work you should include to get hired. 

We designed the shoot based on their feedback.

Based on expert feedback, Tether is hosting a group photo shoot, specifically designed to help you create the type of work clients look for in your portfolio. The FASHION & BEAUTY shoot will feature multiple professionally-styled setups for photographers to test, experiment, and perfect their shots.

This is perfect for pro photographers who want to add high quality, industry-specific work to their portfolio.

What you get:

  • Creative direction based on feedback from brands, agencies, and publishers telling you exactly what they look for when they’re deciding who to hire

  • Multiple options and styles to photograph for your portfolio

  • High quality styling, models, and production from #TetherCincy talent

  • A chance to meet and collaborate with other creatives

What’s a group shoot?

A group shoot is when multiple photographers and videographers take turns shooting the same setups. It’s really common in the wedding industry, but commercial and editorial pros are often left out of those events. We wanted to create something for our industry that serves a similar purpose: building a portfolio that will attract clients!

What are the concepts?

We’ve created three exciting concepts for you to perfect your skills and build your book: 

How do I know what I’ll be shooting and when?

Once the registration has ended, we’ll send a schedule to each participant so you know when to arrive, which sets you’ll go at what time, and who the on-set talent is (hair, makeup, models, etc.). Everyone will have an opportunity to shoot all three setups.

Do I need to bring my own lighting and gear?

Yes. We’ve found that most photographers prefer to bring their own equipment since that’s what they’re comfortable using. We’ll have a ring light, soft box, and reflectors on hand in case someone needs them, but you’re encouraged to bring your own gear. Two of the setups will take place in a studio with natural light, aka #nattylight.

What are you going to do with the photos and video?

The best images will be selected to be part of a campaign promoting Fashion and Beauty talent to beauty brands and fashion retailers. Which means YOUR WORK will be promoted to those brands and retailers, at no additional cost to you. And who doesn’t want free promo?
