Base on qty picture in port?

Sky:
Based on the 4 pictures you have in your port. I think you will have to pay the llamas to pose for you.
It is important to build a port.
Thanks

Assuming you worked on all the models from scratch - you are pretty good and you have potential to be even better. If I were you - I will continue doing TFCD to build my port but will charge a base fee of about 15 Euros as cost of cosmetics!

Wolf:
Your lighting and angles are excellent - but monotonous! Meaning  - there is lack of variety in your port. Continue doing TFCD to get that variety! You have the potential to go far - very far!

Fred:
Your "places" pictures in your website are awesome, top class, out of the world! But your port in MM is mediocre - at best. How about you buy a few round of fosters to models to pose for you and thus bring your game to the level where your "places" photography is.

Waht do you care - you said you retired! Your priorities changed - the boyfriend doesn't approve, you making too much money sitting at home, whatever the reason may be!
Seriously, you are a good model and you should continue modeling not just for Paulo!

Indeed, I did work on all of them from scratch. Nevertheless, I'm... flabbergasted. Thank you for your kind words. smile

I do plan on working TFCD a lot. smile

Chuck your daytime job and become a full-fledged photog. The potential seen in the 10 odd pics especially in http://www.modelmayhem.com/portfolio/pic/31118465
is enormous. You are an old man - you dont have too much time.

Build your port on TFCD and start charging later - sky is the limit for your talent.

You got 4 pics on your port. You need to add variety. You may have to pay for models to pose for you.

But your website is another story. Beautiful images.But we are talking about MM here.

Again, I am not very talented - but I am blatantly frank and honest! But please remember photography is subjective and opinions differ as does the definition of beauty!

And above 21 years old please. All others get ignored.

I have always struggled with this, so would love some input
