Default Model Portfolio Print size?

I have just done my first model portfolio shoot. Just wondering what the standard size the prints should be for a portfolio that will be used for a modeling agency.

Ask the model what the agency wants to see & what her printer needs to layout.

Generally the classic portfolio has been 11x14, and now its going more and more digital. It's always good to see what particular requirements the agency wants, as Frank said.

agreed - see what the agency wants. some will prefer 8x10 glossy white border, loose, others will prefer 11x14 in a bound porfolio book
