Tommy,

A tear sheet is a copy of an actual work a model has done for a paying client. Like if a model gets chosen to represent Maybelline in a magazine campaign she would then "tear" out the add from the magazine for her portfolio. A tear sheet carries more weight than a standard portfolio shot because it shows that others have the confidence in the models abilities.

Its a common assumption that tear sheets are important because they lend credibility to both photographers and models. As you go higher up the photographer food chain at least (not necessarily models) you will find fewer tear sheets and more straight shots and personal work. Propspective clients want to see the photography, and not have to wade through what some other art director did to your shots. As for me, I actually prefer non-tear sheets for models (at least for a major part of their portfolio) for a similar reason. I want to see what the girl looks like, and how she works to the camera, and not be distracted by art direction, photoshop creativity, or fooled by extensive retouching.

Well a "Tare" is a type of weed, as I recall:

[Mat 13:40] As therefore the tares are gathered and burned in the fire; so shall it be in the end of this world.

and they'll be gathered up and burned I suspect, at some point. [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img]

Having seen some examples of model's "tear sheets" and then seen the model, there can be considerable difference between the two. I think I go along with Andy on the uses of the "tear sheets", but it probably doesn't hurt to have a few in the back of one's book as proof of ability to do a professional job. But I'd feature one's best photos first.

Cheers,
rfs

Tear sheets can come from different areas where the use of photography and printing come together. A printed advertisement, an editorial, brochures and possibly even a calendar of some kind. It can come from a newpaper or a magazine and not always what you would buy at the news stand or magazine stores. There are some photographers that are proud to display them on here when they get the chance to produce one. Not necessarily photoshopped any more than what some photographers do with their own work anyways.
