Can I get some advice on my portfolio? Do I have too many photos if so what would be the right amount? Am I embarrassing myself with the quality of my photos. PLease tell me how it is.

Well, let's talk about redundancy...

Ya got way too many similar pictures. In looking at one of your albums, you have a number of slight variations on this

Why? Pick the best of a model/outfit/location and dump the rest. After seeing her back one time, I pretty much know what it looks like. I don't need to see half a dozen more shots of it...

But it's YOUR portfolio, post whatever you want. You are paying for the extra image slots... hopefully your portfolio attracts models. I get models with 30 images, lots of photographers only have a few images and get models... but I'll guarantee their images are all significantly different!

Just my opinion.

I didn't 'view' the images, and I can't tell much from thumbnails. Ya lost me at the thumbnails with all that redundancy and graffiti covered walls as backgrounds. Sorry.
