What is a Comp Card?
A Comp Card is a card with one or more pictures on it, with your name, contact information and vital statistics: Height, weight, hair and eye color, bust, waist, hips and dress size. It’s called a comp card because it normally comprises several images in a composition (composite). Very often your Comp Card will have a head-shot on the front and several different looks on the back. You can have a one-side or two-sided comp card. The size of the comp card can vary but is typically in the 5×7″ range.
Comp cards are designed to be printed in mass so that you can leave them with every agent, talent scout, and photographer you meet, so that they have something permanent to remember you by and also your contact information to get hold of you in the future when they need you to come and get your first paid modeling gig!
How do I go about getting my Comp Card?
Do head-shot and body shots in several different looks. Do as many different looks as you can afford, and don’t be shy to experiment. I often will notice a pose or a look that you did not know was there. Be willing to take direction – trust the photographer’s eye!
if you do not have professional shots that can be used in your Comp Card, contact me for a photo shoot, my prices are very reasonable. Please check this page to find out more about my prices. If you REALLY would like to book a photo shoot and finances are a challenge, contact me and let's see what we can work out.
From the shoot we will select the best images for your comp card – never more than 5 or 6 at the most. You can take them to a local printer or contact me and I can prepare the Comp Card for you and get them printed. I believe the 5 x 7 Comp Cards are a good tool for any model. They are easy to carry and the pricing is very reasonable.
