keep working with different photographers as that will give you a variety of looks, styles and visions.
You are a stunning young lady and your figure is a selling point for creating art, keep shooting... heck if you weren't so far away I'd definitely work with you.

Best wishes smile

I am a sucker of some nice summery dresses

I think a couple of high quality beauty /headshots would also benifit your port

I think that for the market you are going after (glamour, right?), you are off to a great start!

I think your port could use some different types of glamour photos, such as photos of you on a beautiful wrought iron bed, or photos of you on an elegant antique couch or day bed, that sort of thing!

Make sure to post new photos when you have them! smile

You are beautiful and have a wonderfully curvy body.

I'd suggest that you spend time listing images on MM that you love and could pull off yourself. Then find very good photographers in your area/country and contact them all and say something like:

'I want you to shoot with me to create images like those in my List (refer them to the List). I really admire your work and I'd like to shoot with you TF if that is possible, to substantially improve my port to the level it needs to be at to attract paying work!'

Or come to see me. I'd work with you in a heartbeat. smile

It may just be that you have had too few photographs taken. Some of your images are strong but most will be easy to replace as you work with better photographers. I sometime think that some models can't pick good photographs. (I've also had some of my photographs decimated by models editing them.)

Less is more: You could hide the less good ones.

Work, work, work: Visit Nottingham. That there Drew Smith knows his onions! (And I'm just a few kilometres up the road.)
