Update Your ePortfolio to Reflect the Summer

Summer, summer, summertime! Time to sit back and unwind. We had to drop Will Smith’s famous summer tune here – it was hard not to!

Alongside that, soaking in those feel-good vibes with lengthy sunlight hours and warm temperatures can make summertime the best time of the year. Cocktails, mocktails and all the delightful fruity desserts and ice cream treats (all in moderation, mind) can bring a smile to your face and palette.

As the season fast approaches, you might be thinking ahead of where you’d like to venture – the summer is heaving with festivals of all sorts (some are free too, so a bonus!). From music to sports, there’s the Portsmouth International Kite Festival, Sunderland International Airshow (certainly not for the faint-hearted!), Isle of Wight Festival, Glastonbury, and the Royal Ascot to mention a few. There’s loads more we’ve missed but so many opportunities and chances to enjoy yourself, solo or with family and friends.

Another great thing you can do is add the summer’s kaleidoscope of opportunities into your modelling ePortfolio to give it a reboot and freshen it up. Why? Your marketing document, whether you’re a new kid on the block or a whizz kid in the modelling industry, deserves a whirl of newness and versatility that falls in line with the current season.

What can you include:

The landscape of a recent place of interest could be in the backdrop of your image

You could be donning apparel that reflects your location – we’re thinking t-shirts, hoodies, wrist bands, caps, tote bags, whatever you think would be a great addition to your snap

You could also have music festival-inspired makeup to demonstrate the summer fun or vibrant colours like red lippy or yellow eyeshadow for some vibrant unmissable happy colours.

Of course, if you miss the mark, because it’s not always possible to keep up with the trend, that’s fine – Models Direct message would be to just gently remind our models that they need to update their portfolios with their current look.

It’s up to you how you lead your summer ePortfolio. Whether it’s colours, events, food, drink or make-up inspired (or everything and everything in between), you hold the reins of where your portfolio will be guided towards. Make it warm with sunshine, happiness and positivity. Don’t overthink it, just enjoy the moments and keep snapping up some awesome updated images which you can add to your bustling collection online – summer-inspired. It’s up to you to feel what’s right for you. Craft and polish your portfolio your way!
