AIBP looks for excellence. When we receive your application, we will evaluate your website for the following:
(In the event that you are not proficient in the following areas, you will be given a refund and insight on ways to improve your portfolio.)
- You need a boudoir-specific website and/or a full gallery showing no fewer than three clients/models.
- Composition in your work needs to be executed with clear and concise intention, and if the "rule of thirds" is broken, it needs to work well.
- Your website branding needs to be clear, and professional, with easy-to-find information regarding your studio or business location.
- Creative story-telling in your images with detail emphasis, clean architectural lines and bold artistic and original ideas
- Lighting needs to be consistent and nailed whether your use studio lights or natural. Correct exposure is a must.
- Photos need to be in-focus or have intentional bokeh.
- Your post processing is not over-done (as if correct in-camera mistakes).
- Having won awards is a plus, but not a requirement.
- We assume you have rights to ALL of your presented images, and you have model releases on file for your own records. AIBP is not responsible for gathering this information.
