The booker will Maximize the composite card of all of the models who match this description and deliver it over to your customer. The customer will then select who they would like to throw or pick dependent on the composite cards. That is the reason why the pictures on the composite card must present the best side of the model.
A professional model must bring card and their portfolio book . During casting, the client request a card and will browse through the portfolio book. The card that is complete assists the consumer to monitor which model is ideal to represent them and who to oppose. It is very possible that a model without card would not be shortlisted.
