OK..go ahead.  Opinions are good for learning.  Why do critiques have to be mean?  Constructive opinions are good.  Honesty doesn't have to be mean in my opinion.

i'm new at the whole thing, so any criticism is food for thought....i have an idea of what you'll say, but fire away.

First, pick one image from a model in a specific outfit. Especially if theyre all lit the exact way and are not of good quality. If you want to make a series...make one.

You have a VIP membership, but that doesnt mean you need to fill up your gallery with the crap that would turn models away.

If you do landscape, I would try getting into infrared.

Also, your photoshopping skills need some mad work. The purpose is not to make the photo look like it has had an insane amount of post work...

Find somewhere other than your garage to shoot...at least get a backdrop or something.

Unless your runway pic is the most awesome shit alive, just tell us in your port that you were in one.

Pick one photo from an outfit...

I dont like the first photo. Makes your body look squat.

The posing her makes your body look wide. And squished....I dont like arm hair. Its a pet peeve of mine.

Blurry, poor quality and makes you look fat.
