Row 3 Column 3- the stream shot is kinda nice, except you should have been wearing a flowing dress, or something artistic rather than shorts and a T ugh

The last 2 shots are not bad

but other than that you should remove all other photos and work with a stylist MUA and good photographer and get better shots- you're not fashion but more commercial so start smiling in those pics.

Work with full teams that include MUA/Hair, work on your posing, facial expressions, and also include a basic head shot, half, 3/4, and full length. What you have right now seems very senior portrait looking. good luck

Check out this thread from the other day.  Particularly the stuff he says about hands and towards the very end about movement in everything but high fashion.  G'luck http://www.modelmayhem.com/po.php?thread_id=852673

As far as a model you have a great look but the photos are not working for you

http://photos.modelmayhem.com/photos/120812/20/50287ae55c4e5_m.jpg
This is the best photo from portfolio

Things that degrade a photo are, having a big logo across your body, over processing the whites of your eyes, poor composition, cutting off body parts

Too much head tilt, but photo has nice eyes

http://photos.modelmayhem.com/photos/120804/03/501cf58d6424e_m.jpg
Too much head tilt
Keep knees lower then hips will give the legs a longer look
Toes pointed in creates a negative impression
Missing models left foot
Due to pose model has no apparent neck

http://photos.modelmayhem.com/photos/120726/19/5011f8f9b902c_m.jpg
Move elbows off to sides do not point at camera

Fill in your stats, if some one is looking for a model to shoot a designers clothing line, with out the numbers they would have no idea if the sample clothes will fit you

Look for some photographers that can show case you

Wish you the best

Hi there!

I have found there are three things that work best to getting more traffic to your model mayhem page.

1. Visit the main page and exchange comments and list with fellow mmers. You will receive comments and traffic from doing this... sometimes immediately.

2. Participate in as many forums as possible. Make sure you have your best photo as your avatar.. this will draw people in as well.

3. Post casting calls and availability notices and work through MM as often as possible.

Hope this helps!
