Digital Blitz, how do you keep up with this forum?
Let me have it, it might be a fun game.

How? Its simple:
1. I got too much free time in my hand.
2. I stay away from mud-slinging, people below 21 years of age, and anyone with a frustrated attitude.
3. Only when the above 2 is fulfilled - I try to keep my answers as honest and frank as possible. I try to picture myself who would be paying if I were to hire the person I am evaluating.

As for taking over - have you tried starting your own? Please do!

You don't make any sense and I didn't get a $ rate from you,
so you have now wasted my time.

..by "let me have it" I meant please give me a $ rate judgment, I'm willing to play along. I did not mean "let me take over your forum and do it instead of you".

Your port has some awesome pictures juxtaposed with some average pictures and in my mind needs weeding.

The only thing I have problems with you is your hair color of "burgundy pink with a light pink fringe". But otherwise you are a total model quality.

In my mind, a print model's best assets are her expressive eyes and facial muscles - and you have them.

Pretty damn close, $100-$150 +post depending on the job and how hungry I am at the time. wink

And for what it's worth, none of the models in my port paid anything at all.

I dont think I have done you either!

You have a very pretty pair of eyes -  ..."a rose will smell as good by any other.."

But I think there are a lot of room for improvements in your expressions field. I am going to say $30/hr. Sorry!

$30hr ain't bad in this economy smile The only direction I want to go is up, I am getting back to shooting after six weeks off so hopefully you'll see some improvement soon.

Also your port is in need of diversification. How about some TFCD work with a few good Photographers!

Some of your pictures are simply wow. e.g. this one - http://www.modelmayhem.com/portfolio/pic/31557796

But you also have a few that are not so great and should be removed from your port. You are a better photographer than I shall ever be and hence you know which ones I am talking about! smile

You could charge a lot more than your asking rate of $50/hr. But you have just two expressions in your port. One says "hello" the other says "ok shoot". I won't pay  you more than $25/hr - nude or otherwise!

Awesome expressions. This is what I want you to do. Make a video on how to emote in front of the camera and put in on youtube. The community will be thankful to you!
