The new Miss Fylde Coast 2017 – Coral, a photographer for Blackpool Tower swaps the sides of the camera for her official portfolio shoot with Miss England photographer Andy Bristow.
Being Junior Miss Morecambe is amazing! My name is Rachel Simpson, I’m 16 and am from Morecambe.
When every new Miss is crowned in the North West they get to build a portfolio with Andy. So when I won Junior Miss Lancaster I was asked what style I would like and I said something sporty to show people what I am about – the real me and not just the “Miss” side.
Why build a pageant modelling portfolio?
Having any kind of modelling portfolio is a great way to show that you are experienced in your field. Your portfolio will showcase all your different looks, skills and experience with its main purpose to obtain modelling assignments, agency representation or work in TV or film.
An effective pageant modelling portfolio needs to be a well rounded representation of any modelling work you’ve done, showcasing your many styles and looks as well as demonstrating your ability to handle other jobs in the media industry. Make sure you always keep your portfolio up to date and at hand, taking it with you to pageants, competitions or public events etc. Remember, there could be a talent scout in the audience on the lookout for new talent or models!
