I am a little on the fence here.  You have a few things that limit what I could do with you.  Those being the piercings, and the tatoos.  That being said, I love the craziness I see in you, and for the right purpose, I think you would be awesome.  In the end, I think yes, I would shoot you.

I'm sorry.  It looks like you have a lot of fun, and would do a good job.  But the hair style and the tats make you pretty much useless for what I do.

More than anything you need experience.  You need to find photographers that will do trade work with you so you can get professional looking images in your port.  You may even have to pay one.  But I don't consider hiring anyone until they at least have a port that shouts out that they are a professional.

I see one, and only one expression in every shot.  Makes me think you are shy or afraid to express yourself.  So I would say no.

You have a great shape.  A great personality seems to show.  You can pose well.  You have a nice look.  So everything is going well for you, except the tattoos.  For that reason alone I would not shoot you.

Thank you.for your honesty and compliments.... yes I totally understand and have experienced that the tattoos can make it harder to get accepted or offered consideration for quite a bit of work.  Once again thank you for your time and respected honesty.  smile

Maybe.  Nice figure.  Not much for expressions.  So I probably would do a trade, but not hire.

i commented in the other forum that you could use a little more muscle tone.  However, let me say that I think you have a great shape, and I would love to shoot with you on some type of shoot that shows off that shape.  So yes, I would hire you for that type of work.

Absolutely!  You look like you have a lot of fun.  You have a great look, and a great body.  I would love to hire you.  I wish you were closer!  If you are ever in my area, I would hire you for sure.

You pretty much have the same look on your face in every image.  It tells me I might have a hard time getting any expression out of you, so I would not hire you at this time.

I usually don't shoot tattoos.  But I am actually looking for models right now with tattoos to do fitness shoots.  And the bird is way cool.  So, if you were here, I would definitely do a fitness shoot with you.

I would be open to a possible shoot.  But it would have to be a tfp.  I would not pay.  There is nothing in your port that looks professional.  You just need to work with some great photographers and get some good images that show you off.  I want to see images that show good head shots, as well as whole body shots.  When I can't see what type of body shape I am working with, I just move on.

Actually, you got it wrong this time.  I love the hair.  I would shoot you for that reason.  I love different.  Something you don't see everyday.  Wish you were closer!

I would work with you for sure.  But I would probably not pay at this point.  Maybe a trade or something.  I think you have a nice look.  When I look at your port, I see that you have very few images, and a lot of them are from the same shoot, which shows a lack of experience.  But I think you have a lot of potential.

You have the exact same face expression on all of your images.  It tells me that your personality does not come out in the shots.  Unless that is it.  I need someone versatile.  That would be the main reason I would not hire you.
