Introduction to our Workshops – (Established since 1995).
Our successful and popular workshops are run during every school holiday term, and have been established now for over 20 years. We love hosting these workshops as they are fun, inspiring and motivating. Each course helps to build confidence, teaches the value of good manners and the importance of self-worth and happiness along with many other key elements that is required to succeed within the modern day world. The workshops also incorporate makeup skills, skincare, presentation, deportment, confidence, catwalk, life-skills, interview skills plus MANY other key elements. The successful reputation of our workshops is based on the high calibre of experience that Director Mel Radford Brown has within the Modelling industry. Mel has 24 years experience within the industry and as a booker/agent, within the NZ, Aus and UK markets and is the perfect tutor to handover her first hand knowledge. Mel has modelled for Trinny and Susannah London, Bendon, Postie Plus, Ballantynes, Country Road, Paula Ryan and Barbara Lee to name a few over the years!!. Mel enjoys taking these workshops and gets a lot of satisfaction in helping others achieve their goals. Rebecca Dore, the Agency Booker at Portfolio and one of Christchurch’s top Models with international modelling experience, also helps to deliver her expertise on these fantastic and inspirational workshops and enjoys sharing the course content with Mel. All recipients receive a certificate upon completion of the workshop and also your own professional photos – and btw – its a lot of fun too!!

What aspect did you enjoy most about the Portfolio Teenage Workshop? The thing i most enjoyed about the workshop was probably the photo shoot, i learnt a lot of tips and it helped me with feeling more confident in front the camera. Also learning to do our own make up was fun! What was the most valuable information that you learnt and that you use often in every day life? That confidence is key!
Hello Mel I would just like to say a huge thank you for the great time I had over the 2 days for the workshop. I really enjoyed myself and thought you were a great teacher and you made the class really interesting and enjoyable(: I feel a lot more confident and have taken on all the little helpful tips you have me(: Once again a big thank you!
Hey Mel Since i've completed your course, at the end of last year, I just wanted to thank you so much and show you a photo from my sisters wedding at the end of Nov last year. After your course things got a lot better for me my hormones were finally settled and thanks to you my confidence just kept growing. Its amazing what a little bit of help, from someone you can respect easily, can actually make such a huge difference to how you present yourself. Your courses are amazing and I believe they truely help the insecure teens (like myself....well my old self). So congrats on having such an inspiring company I hope you keep doing it because it helped change me and many others I would say. It made me think of how people see me out in public and a lot changed such as my style, my cleanliness (nails etc) and the way I am now seen. I read your notes all the time. Keep up the amazing company because there are a lot of teens that could get a real boost out of your work. Thank you so much
The concept of confidence coming from within was only a theory I had heard, before I had attended the Adult Workshop. I learnt that you can wear whatever you want, present yourself however you want and conduct yourself however you want if you find that well of confidence that comes from within. Confidence is essential in all aspects of life, from work life to casual social life. It allows you to be who you want to be and do what you want to do without any thought of "oh, I might fail if I do this" or "I might get laughed at if I fully commit to this". I found a new sense of confidence from doing the runway training, the professional photo shoot with Dave Richards, the nutrition talks and also from the wise words of Mel Radford Brown. Her experience and knowledge of the industry is priceless and well worth listening too.
