Our top 3 tips for gaining a photographer’s and client’s trust
There’s no denying the fact that the digital age has changed everything. With technology at our fingertips it can be all too easy to create misleading profiles with a couple of apps and the help of a Photoshop nip and tuck! With agency representation quickly becoming a dated service, and online casting now being the norm, now more than ever clients are relying on YOU to give them accurate depictions of yourself.
When you create an accurate depiction of yourself, you are laying the foundation of an honest relationship, which in turn will lead to gaining trust, which in our industry is EVERYTHING! Take it from us, it can make or break you in the this industry.
So, make sure you give yourself a fighting chance to be your best, and gain the reputation you deserve by following our top tips.
- Keep the information about your profile current
This means regularly updating the information about your profile as the seasons change. For example, you might have gone from a blonde to brunette, from glamour model to fitness model, from model to actor. Whatever changes are in the woodwork, we want to know!
- Update your photos regularly
Clients want to know what you’ve been up to! They want to see you insitu, in all your glory. Regularly updating your photos is a great way to tell your story and to show off your experience. Plus, it’s a great advantage when you’re competing for jobs. For example, a client is more likely to trust a profile with regularly updated photographs versus one that’s been stagnant for a number of months.
- Be honest with yourself
When applying for jobs, take a moment to reflect on whether it’s right for you. For example, there might be a casting call that’s specifically looking for a male fitness influencer. If you’re anything but, there’s absolutely no reason for you to apply for the job. The client will immediately ignore your application, and worst case, could even be annoyed that you applied. Be real, be honest with yourself, and don’t put yourself through unnecessary rejection.
