Definitely like your profile better.  Its. concise, to the point, and gives some good examples of your work.

You port just has too many images that are very similar.  Some very good ones just too many of the same genre.

I definitely like your profile better.  You describe yourself quite well and it's short and to the point.

I like your port except for the first 5 pictures.  The couples shots do nothing to promote you.  There is very little interaction between both of you and they just look like 2 uncomfortable models posing.

I am not that crazy about your profile.  You mention you are petite and make it seem like  it's a hinderance, it is not.  But your port is very good...keep up the good work.

Your port is better.  You seem to be starting your llamaing career and both your profile and port will expand over time.  This shot is a gem, shows how beautiful you are.

Your port is great and your profile stinks because it says you sold your studio lights and are only doing limited photo shoots.

I like your port..it is very diverse which either means you feel confident doing every style; or, you haven't found your niche yet.

What I don't like in your port is that it says "I am booked on" and then it shows no booking dates...gives the impression you are not in demand.

Thank you. I'll remove that part of it.

In your profiles you mention you have a tattoo of lillies on your right shoulder, you will send a picture of it if requested.  Why not just put a picture in your port?

It extends all the way down to mid back and I haven't quite got a good picture of it to put in the port. If I sent one it'd be a web version. Luckily I may have a shot coming up soon smile

Your port is better. 

It is apparent from your profile you are in a "Catch 22" situation.  You are looking for models to photograph TFCD but most of your experience is with friends and family.

Why should a model waste her time with a photographer that is inexperienced photographing models?  You will have to compensate your models to get a top notch model that will benefit your port.  I would be surprised if a quality model would do a TF shoot with you based on your lack of model experience.

Without a doubt your port is better.  Your profile looks like you just tried to get something down quick to get through it.

Your port contains some models who are gems like this one.

Your port is much better.  You don't just photograph beautiful models, you capture feeling and emotion as well...that is much more difficult that capturing beauty.

Your profile goes on and on with a lot of  words that say nothing. Its more like an autobiography of your life than a profile.
