Brighter images. I love the dark, moody images, but some outdoor images -- ranging from ultramodern urban "dress for success" looks to Victorian era looks -- would be a marked change for your [already impressive] port.

Is it always dark in England?
Well, I think all your pics are great, and I agree, you need something more "sunny" (literally).
Maybe more indoor/studio shots, also maybe with bold simple colors.
Your body is "dropped and collapsed" in most of your poses, try a few poses uplifted, like a ballerina (I know I'm biased).
If you are athletic enough, try a few action poses?

Well, you are apparently into the 'alt' stuff, goth, vampires, and all that...
I'm not. No point in me suggesting stuff that you aren't likely to want to do.
Just let me say that all the 'alt' stuff, gothic, and vampire, etc. is a passing fad... it may last a while, but how long is a 'while'? It'll seem pretty dated one of these days.

That 'alt' stuff you talk about has been going pretty strong for a decade now... I see nothing wrong with doing it now while it's current, and taking it out of your portfolio when it doesn't.
All fashion dates, isn't that the point? I never really get when people say not to do certain styles. Experience everything while you can I say!
Lighting shouldn't be that much of an issue, even in the UK!
I do agree with others, more simple studio work, you could probably ask down at your local college for a BTEC or A Level student to take some for you with much more ease than dealing and organising with a togger, unless you have one on call of course.
If you're going for the broken doll look in your poses, eccentuate it more now. Push it sometimes and try something a little different, make sure to read VOGUE, Harpers Bazaar etc for editorial, and catalogues, for well, catalogue and commercial poses.
Just have fun! And if you're in brum one day I'd love to do a victorian shoot with you!

Pretty much anything other than the semi-gothic flowery fluff you have a the moment!
You have good height and reasonable stats. You don't need to limit yourself in the way you have been so far.

To suggest something totaly different - high fashion-y latex, chic modern business suit, something indoors or around architecture if not in the studio
I do love some of the ethereal concepts you already have.
