For hostess, promotion and model jobs, you use your sedcard/profile to present yourself to companies. Besides your previous experience and qualifications (e.g. language skills, education, etc. ), good photos are the most important decision criterion for the client.
Please mind the following instructions, so you maximize your chances of getting booked by clients. Aim for photos which show you in different poses and (work-)surroundings, to prevent the client from having an one-sided impression of you.
A profile picture should only depict the head and shoulder tips, omitting the décolleté. The face (incl. hairline) fills approximately half to two thirds of the photo’s height. A smile or friendly expression is absolutely recommended. Here, you can see an exemplary profile picture, as well as some good examples at a 2:3 ratio.
Depicting the eyes’ natural focus point, a medium shot shows the person from waist to head. The head should fill up 20 to 25% of the photo’s height. Here is a paragon and some good examples of medium shots at a 4:5 ratio.
A full body shot shows, obviously enough, the full body (from head to toe). The person should display a natural, yet solid stance. You will remember your mother’s instructions on this. Here is an exemplary full body shot, as well as good examples of full length shots at a 2:3 ratio.
In addition to the above mentioned, standardized formats, we recommend you to upload more pictures. It is best to use natural, good snapshots in work or free time environments and, if possible, one or more pictures from professional shootings. Here you see a few exemplary pictures which help in the individualization of your profile.
If possible, the profile picture should be taken by a professional photographer. For the remaining ones, professional shootings are not necessary – actually natural photos are even better. Please note the following guidelines:
