I think they match, although I am not sure how someone can apply his photo-journalistic background to nude shoots, but in some way I think that what can be seen in your port is precisely that, since your nude shots don't look to me simply artistic ones, but something beyond that.

thank you very much for your time and comment!

cheers ears

go ahead, this is an interesting approach.

Your port is full of swimsuit shots, maybe a couple of glamour shots, and it matches a small part of your profile, but I think that the general impression you get after reading you fits better with the images you have below your profile.

I can't really say that they don't match, but yor port surprised me a bit, mainly because is more impressive than what I was expecting, but also because there some shots that I was not expecting, like the ones in abandoned places, that I like very much btw.

As for suggestions, I would change your avatar....it is a beautiful image but you have others where your beauty and excellent qualities are much more evident.

Thanks very much for the critique and suggestions! I will scurry off and change my avatar right now smile

Sure! Thanks for participating.

In your case it is ckear that they don't match, but it is because you don't say anything in your profile!

You have a stunning port, you are a great retoucher, so my advice is that you write down a bio and give yourself some publicity, you deserve it.

What can I say? It is impossible that they don't match, since you have a whole portfolio included in your profile, and then you have your other port that obviously is in the same stunning level than your profile.

Congrats for such a great work!

Thank you! I tried to write a bio and all, but I never knew what to say, and it all came out a bit "fake" so I decided to keep it simple smile.

I would say 50/50.

You are really expressive, as you say in your profile. You transmit emotions very very convincingly, it is clear that you are an actress , not only a model.

However, it was a surprise to find in your port your tasteful nudes, since you don't say anything about that in your profile.

Yes, they match. I think that once you read your profile, what you can see in your port is not a surprise at all, although I don't find in your shots the Native Australian origins that you say you have, but I am not an expert at that either.

Btw, I like you more dark haired than blonde, if I may dare to give you my opinion. Love your port anyway, it is a pleasure to have a look at it.

I think they match in general terms. Maybe so many lingerie shots are not expected after reading your port, but they are not out of context either.

But your main interest, that is beauty and old Hollywood style portraits, is well present in your port, and they are very good shots indeed.

I can't write about myself, nor about what I do.

So likely not. Please tell me what you think, and if you can suggest changes to match this up.

Yes, I think we could say they match.

Maybe some more beauty shots would be expected, but fashion and beauty is what you say in your profile and what can be seen in your port.

A great port indeed

Your port is full of beauty shots and experimental ones, and this is what you say in your profile that you do, so no problem there.

I think that your website - out of MM I mean - is very interesting, with very good tutorials. Although you have a link, I would make a somewhat more detailed description so that people would be interested in having a look at them.

Yes,I think they match.

In fact I think that not only your port reflects what you say in your profile, but also adds some more interest to it, since the shots one could expect are there and some other too, being all really good shots.

Well, you don't say too much in your profile, the only thing being that you are a serious fashion model and does not have issues doing nudes.

However, in your port things seem to be the other way round, since most shots are nudes and you have the ocasional fashion shot. In any case, since we miss some more detail, I think it could be said that they match, more or less.

I'm afraid that to say that you are always looking for new faces ia not to say much about yourself and your work, and that's the only thing you say, so the viewer is absolutely blind about what to expect from your port.

You should extend your profile a bit.
