3 Tips for dancers to get a good photo portfolio.
Having a impressive portfolio is essential for any dancer, to start new projects, auditions, to join a company and more. But this attempt to drawn attention to you can easily fail and make your portfolio be dismissed right away.
So here are 3 tips to make your portfolio stand out.
1 - Avoid excess.
Don't fall for a style full of light effects, photoshop or too much production.
Go for a clean style, something that can see you well, so the viewer can see truth on it.
2 - Choose something with character.
Companies sees hundreds of portfolios and they all look the same. Either they are very boring or very artificial.
Use a warmer approach with different photos in between, portraits and full bodyshots, to create a personal connection with the viewer.
3 - Pick the right photographer.

Choose someone that knows and follows dance beyond their studio.
