I think that you really try to find something sensual in everything you shoot.  Soft..delicate..smooth and sensual that is what I see in your port smile

I think you pretty much have the Maxim and Playboy style nailed perfectly. If you blend beauty, amazing body, talent and confidence, you have one of the best models on MM. That is what I think.

And I think this is my fav or yours. I have it listed in my "Hall of Fame" for amazing bootties

P.S.--the only thing I would like to see a bit more of is artistic nudes. The one I notice......well.....WOW!!

I think you are one of the sexiest glamour models in the known universe.  Body, beauty, talent, posing, and sensousness, you have it all. I would love to have your honest comments on my portfolio.

Thank you! I really appreciate all of the kind words smile  My opinion of your work is that you love to play with light and you do it well.  I think you lean towards shadow and use that to create a nice mood and you do it well.  I can honestly say that I really like what I see.  I also see you enjoy bodyscapes smile

So with you I see a nice use of natural light, a nice blend of good looking models and your post work looks good smile  I like it!  I would lose the train track shot though..imho only.  It's cliche but again that is only my opinion, many people may like them hmm

I think you've got the glam thing nailed - the posing nuances, the moods, the looks -

I think you've shot with some of the best

Judging by your port I think you like the contrasty, the edgy a bit more than the softer approach, and this works for you

What I would wish would be to see some traditional beauty work in your port,  and a little more of the softly sensual and elegantly understated.  Only my viewpoint  as a viewer of your work, which is certainly smashing in its own right.

Well damn the whole Universe?  Thanks luv! smile  Well I think you like muscular women and bright colors wink  Ok honest opinion.  I'd like to see some more creativity from the standpoint of using all backdrops.  I would love to see you outside or in a different setting.  Maybe a home, or a park etc.  I think your lighting works in a lot of shots but sometimes seems bit flat maybe try to add a bit more drama to the lighting.  My biggest recommendation would be to work with your models a little more on posing and expressions as that may be some of the reason I am seeing some of the images as flat.  Overall though I think you are making improvements from beginning to end of your port and will continue to do so smile

Thank you! And I agree I will be focusing on adding some softer more sensual work in the near future as well as putting a focus on beauty.  My opinion of your work and I know I have told you I love it in the past so I will take a different approach. If photography could resemble a formal education at an ivy league school it would be your work imo.  Very studied and refined.  Formal but experimental with light and movement.....hope that made sense smile

I am honored.  Truly.  I go through spells of not liking my work at all.  It really makes a difference to hear something supportive now and then, and especially from someone of your experience and talent....

And I honestly cannot wait to release the dozen or so fashion stories I have in publications over the next six months or so smile   That represents my best work by far.

Thank you again - and it goes without saying, that I would love to have the opportunity to work with you one day.

Cheers -

All I can think of is why on earth you have a phone shot as your profile picture. Looks as though you're just starting out, while you have a lot of experience and awesome work in your portfolio.

You did well as a model and the photog did well to throw the background out with exposure to focus on your strong look.

Well done smile

Also as far as your work you already know I like it, so for this critique I will just let you know the feeling your work gives off. It's bright, airy, gives a nice gentle vibe smile  You are really good at what you do and  if I had to sum your work up to one word it would be luxury.

Thank you Anneliese smile  You have a beautiful face...the only problem is that it is all I see in your port.  Would love for you to add some 3/4 or full body shots.  But, I see you are expanding your port so maybe we will see that soon?

I think you have a beautiful figure and really nice poses, and I wonder why you keep the phone shot when you have much better pictures to use instead.

Ahh yes at this point I figured it would be a good idea to add a few "candids" and let people see what I look like everyday. And thank you smile


Your work is full of unique, creative poses and you obviously prefer b&W and shadow.  A lot of your shots are figure studies to me and if I was to sum your port up on one word it would be graceful smile  Even the bondage shots..seem graceful to me .

Very attractive woman with a great figure. You clearly have been with some very talented photographers. Too much emphasis on make up, I'd love to see you without any. Less is more other than that great portfolio.

Haha yeah I did it just to have one up as I see many other people do it and people always want to see un retouched images.  I made it my avi as a joke and people really liked it so I kept it up for a while smile  Thank you btw smile

So being honest here with your port I sense a hesitation, or maybe what I don't sense is confidence.  The expressions tell me you are unsure of yourself while shooting. It's just my opinion and could very well be wrong, but I think you can open up a lot more and KNOW that you ARE confident , then it will show in your expressions.  You have no reason not to be honestly, so don't hold back or worry to much or think to much while you are shooting...just simply rock big_smile    Hope that ramble made sense hmm

Well you were supposed to give your opinion of me but ok lol.  I think you do well with natural light, and that's cool, I would still like to see some more dramatic lighting with strobes, even on location but it's my opinion only.  I see a lot of experimentation in your work, which is not a bad thing I can just tell you are trying new things or remaking things you see.  Some of them are not 100% but you are doing well and will nail them as you go.

I think you're an amazing and successful model who I have looked up to for over a year. I agree with someone who posted above that they would like to see more artistic nudes. I also think you have some images in your portfolio that could be removed, but I also target a different audience so it's quite possible that you have reason to keep them.
