Of course, Polaroids are those cute instant photos you remember from the past, but a polaroid has a slightly different meaning when it comes to models, photographers and agencies:
A Polaroid is a photo of a model specifically aimed to show off clearly, without any disturbances, the physical qualities of the model. Thus, Polaroids are usually globally lighted photos, without using makeup and with very simplistic clothes.
Polaroids are the kind of photos model agencies, scouters, stylists and photographers looking for models love the most, simply because they are the most clear and realistic way to see how a model really is, without any interferences.
Professional models really need updated Polaroids!
