What are model digitals and who needs them?

Model digitals (also know as model polaroids) are very basic and natural images taken of model that are meant to showcase your face and body in as natural of a form as possible, ideally without any editing or professional hair styling or make-up.

Model digitals are meant to give a potential client or model agency the opportunity to get an idea of what you look like with next to nothing added so they can see you as a blank canvas and get an idea of how they can add to you for their project, for example.

These unedited images are standard for the modeling industry and every single aspiring or experienced model should have some.

Why Do I Need Modeling Digitals?

Every aspiring and established model needs to have professional modeling digitals take.

 

Since the pandemic agencies and clients have cut down on in-person casting dramatically, therefore increasing the need to see models in their natural state on photo. 

Modeling digitals are relied upon for that now more than ever.

How Soon Can We Book?

I shoot several model digital packages for aspiring and established models every week.

 

Based on my schedule and the availability of a studio, I can shoot as soon as the same day.

Where Do I Shoot My Model Digitals

I shoot most of my model digitals at HQpixel Studio in East Williamsburg, Brooklyn.

 

It is a great 1000 square feet professional photo studio with the best natural lighting in all of New York City photo studios.

What Should I Do Before My Model Polaroids Photo Shoot Session?

Preparing for your digitals photoshoot is essential.

 

Once you book your shoot session you should take one to three weeks to get your face and body in as great a condition as you can (if you haven't done so already)

You want your digitals to present the best you. So you should spend time clearing your skin by cutting all oils and dairy. You should also be overly mindful of what you put into your body and focus on drinking as much water as possible and taking making solely fruits and vegetables as much of your diet as possible.

You should also get your body as toned as you can by doing cardio and implementing daily workouts.

 

An 18 to 48 hour fast per week is also great for your body, as it can help clear your skin and assist with toning your body.

DO I NEED A HAIRSTYLIST OR MAKEUP ARTIST FOR MY MODEL DIGITALS SHOOT?

It is not recommended that you have on very much makeup when shooting model digitals. For digitals you should come camera ready, moisturized, with light to no makeup on. 

Casting directors want to see what you actually look like in a your most raw form so the point of model digitals is to capture that.

WHAT TO WEAR FOR MODEL DIGITALS PHOTO SHOOT?

 

For your model digitals photo shoot session you should bring a pair of basic fitted blue, black, or white jeans or skirt and a basic white, black or blue top that shows your figure.

 

You can also bring a set of matching undergarments if you want that look as well.

 WHAT HAPPENS DURING YOUR

MODEL DIGITALS SHOOT ME?

You should ideally arrive to your model digitals shoot camera ready and in your first look. When you arrive at our shoot we'll meet and get familiarized a bit and then discuss small things like your look options, music preferences, and posing advice for our shoot. 

Once that is done we will begin your shoot and shoot your first look for half of the time. Then I'll have you change into your second look and we'll continue shooting.

I'll be guiding you throughout your shoot to some do's and don'ts and setting you up in different areas of the studio to get different looks and poses.

WHAT HAPPENS AFTER YOUR

MODEL DIGITALS SHOOT?

After your shoot you'll pay your remaining balance (if you have one). Within 72 hours I will send you tear sheets (which are mini pictures of all of the pictures that we took). You can then go through them all and choose the images that you want as soon as you are ready.

 

Within seven to ten business days from when you send your selections I will send you large jpg images of your chosen pictures raw and unedited, along with a very natural lightly retouched version of the images.
