Well you are looking swell no matter what the age.  I am certain that you have been turning heads all of your life.

Your profile starts out by mentioning your kids and your husband.  Sweet.  But unless they are part of the package I am sure it need be said.  More about your availability would be useful since you obviously have a busy life what with all of the kids and that pesky husband.

Your port is great.  You show off the extent of what you are willing to do and you do it very well.  More pictures would be better but that may be just because you are easy on the eyes.

Sure. I would pay you to model.  Good luck.

You have the figure for it.  And your profile is short and to the point.  Your portfolio shows you off well.  I might suggest something more on the lighter side both figuratively and literally.

Let us see you smile.  Such a pretty face must certainly brighten up with a smile.  How about a swim suit shot? How about some jeans?  How about a goofy one with your tongue sticking out?  Okay, maybe not that one.

I would pay you to llama because you have great figure and there are so many more good shots for you to make magic in.  You would have to laugh and smile though.

Good luck

I would not call you a plus size.  Voluptuous. Rubenesque. Beautiful with giant ta tas maybe.  You are very pretty and you carry your weight very well.  Your portfolio shows you off very well and shows the broad range of which you are capable. 

Your profile is a bit wordy for my liking but maybe that is just me. I am visual motivated and so pictures work better for me than words.

I would hire you.

You are a very pretty model.  You do need to have more shots in your portfolio though.  Some shots showing you in various poses indicating the range of things you can do  would be helpful.  Go easy with the animal skins unless that is where you intend to focus. And lose the pictures of you with a guy unless he is somehow part of the package you are offering.

Your profile is short which is good and let's people know of your availabilty and location.  That is good.  There is an obscure reference to some link towards the bottom.  I am not sure where it leads or what the point is.  Use this site on MM to market yourself, not to refer to some other site.  I want to see everything necessary to make a decision right in front of me on one page when looking for a model.

I would not hire you just because there is not enough in your port to make a choice for you.  Get someone to do TF and fill up your portfolio to give yourself a better chance.

Well  you are beautiful and have great figure.  Your portfolio shows you off well. I am sure you are doing very well at modeling.

Your profile is maybe the worse I have ever seen on Model Mayhem.  It starts and ends with some obscure quote that is probably very meaningful to you. But how does it help me make a decision to hire you.  Maybe if I were hiring a poet or philosopher, it would catch my interest.

Then your profile has any number of links.  I did something I never do and took one to 1010.  It doesn't lead to you. So what is the point? If you are trying to direct business to 1010 it works pretty well.

Then there are the negative things about how no one should try to scam you or you will send in your battalion of lawyers. Really? Wow.  I am so scared of lawyers I would not touch you with the ten foot pole. (Actually, nothing scares me, least of all lawyers) I am not sure what issue you have or have had but good luck with all of that.  There are a lot of good models on here without all of those issues and negative vibes.

Please take this in the spirit it was given.  You are beautiful. You will do well.  You need to seriously revamp your marketing strategy. Good luck.

Thank you for your response. I know my port is very minime but I'll have plenty of time during the summer holidays to make up for it! I should've had more pictures by now but I had an accident right after my first shoot so I had to cancel a couple of shoots.

The link is actually leading to a picture (an example), for an idea I want to work out. smile

Well you are quite beautiful and have some dangerous curves.  I would hire you in a heartbeat.  Your portfolio is quite extensive and shows you off very well.  It is obvious that you are a seasoned professional.

Your profile goes on forever as you have done a lot of work.  I am not sure what  your acting credentials bring to the party but since you have everything else listed there why not.  I am not going to read it.  It does seem like you are advertising for every job in the world so you might want to focus a bit more on modeling on this website.  There must be better and other websites for your other skills and aspiration.

So I would hire you.  But you knew that.  Good luck to you and who knows when our paths will cross.

You have a good profile written up that explains what you are open for and what  you want to do.  Very good.

Your profile has a lot of pictures in it showing the range of shots you can and will do .  Also very good.  I suggest that you promote yourself more on the Main page here to get yourself more picture comments and more notice.

All in all you are a very interesting model.  Good luck.

Well you have perhaps the perfect profile written up.  Maybe you should give lessons on brevity.

You have a lovely slender figure and a port that shows you off well.  I would like to see a couple of good head shots but what you have would be enough to get my interest.  There is a lot of variety in there and most of the shots are wll done.

Yeah I would hire you.

Your profile starts out with quotes from the dictionary. You will have to explain to me how that makes you more attractive as a model. I have seen models use quotes from obscure philosophers in the hopes of giving themselves perhaps more mental depth than they might have but I have never seen someone quote from the dictionary.

Your portfolio is okay but while viewing it I found myself distracted by my new word of the day-'ebb'.  You have some nice shots in your port and I suppose you will do well.

I would not hire you because I will be busy reading the dictionary ont he day we would shoot.  Sorry.

You are a handsome guy with a good physique.

Your profile goes on and on about your skills in areas other than photography.  Aren't there better sites to get a ride in a sports car? Acting? Advertising your own business?  Then there are numerous links to who knows what?  While it is nice to learn you are such an interesting guy, how does any of this help me, the guy who will supposedly pay you to model. At the end of reading your profile I was very confused why you posted on MODEL Mayhem as opposed to some other more appropriate site.

Your port is good and shows you off well.  I don't understand the photos of you and the girl.  Who is she? Is she part of the package? Can I hire just her?

All too confusing for me.  My advice is to pick something you are interested in and go for it.

Thank you for your opinion, i appreciate it and will make some adjustments... Just one thing:

What you asked about the girl. I don't quite understand. Should i not post a variety of shots just because i am not alone in the shot? The one was a stock shoot and the other for a fairytale. I see it just as a couple shoot, but am i suppose to take them out of my port?

I see  your post and all posts on Model Mayhem as a marketing of yourself-you. You as a model. A lot of models, mostly women, post photos of them with their boyfriends as though to prove that they have a man in their lives. I think we can assume that everyone has someone in their lives.

If you believe that posing with a woman shows off your versatility as a model then by all means leave it in. Once again I would assume that getting a guy to pose with a girl is a given.

Please take my comments in the spirit in which they were given.  MM is a chance to market yourself as a model.  That is what I come here to look for-models. If I wanted someone to drive my race car, I would got to Laguna Seca. You get the idea.

Well you certainly are fit enough.  There is nothing sexier than a well toned female form.  And you are pretty enough.  Lot's of piercings but I assume that they can be removed with little detriment.

Your profile is short and to the point.  Great.

Your portfolio shows you off well in a variety of poses. The most eye catching one is the one of you on the mountain.  The most artistic is the b and white one with you looking like the Million Dollar Baby.

You need to get yourself noticed more and get more comments on your pictures.  You don't want to do nude work, which I respect, but the field for runway modeling is saturated and you have to find a way to stand out.  Maybe billing yourself as a sports or fitness model and getting more photos in those area would be the way to go.

Good luck. Stay in school. Stay in the gym.

Your profile is okay but list all of the things that will become obstacles in a shoot: Your location, your need for an llama herder, you need for gas.  While I appreciate the heads up on these things maybe you could leave these until after you get an offer. And putting a plug in for your friend is noble but I found myself more interested in her portfolio than yours

Your portfolio has a  lot of variety in it.  Most of the shots have you wearing something black.  But there are a lot of good poses and some with some color to them.

And you are 17 which is why I would not hire you.  But good luck.

Okay, I'll take that off my profile, I was wondering what you would think of that smile and I can't mind particularly that you liked her port more, because I took all but two of her pictures. Thanks for your time, I appreciate that

You have nice portfolio showing you off well in a variety of poses.  You need to promote yourself a bit more and get some comments under your photos.  Try trading comments on the main page.

Your profile is lengthy but it does not have anything in it that is not germaine. So good.

I would hire you because I sense you have a lot more to offer than your portfolio shows at present.

Good luck.

You have a pretty face and  a full figure.  You also seem to have a lot of experience judging by your credit list. Your port shows you off well in a variety of settings.

Your profile indicates that I have to go somewhere else to see your nude work.  I also have to go somewhere else to see shots of you in another portfolio.  Why?  This MM site is to promote you and supposedly get you some paid work.  I, for one, don't have the patience to go surfing to see more shots of you when they could be put up here.  That is what the competitor models are doing.

So I would pass just because it is easier to browse models who have complete, representative portfolios on MM.

Good luck and I am sure you will do well.

You are a very pretty young lady and your port shows you off well with a wide range of poses. 

Your profile is short and to the point and lays out your requirements for an escort since you are underage.  Very good.  Be careful out there.

I wouldn't hire you because you are underage and that comes with any number of potential problems that I would not want to deal with.  On the other hand you are at a good age to launch a modeling career.  I would suggest that you look for local print modeling for local businesses so as to gain some experience and see if this gig is really for you.  You certainly have the looks for it.

And then, stay in school and mind your parents. And no smoking, drinking or kissing until you are 28.

Good luck.

Thank you for your response, however I must say this: A lot of models separate their nude work and regular work. Also, I do not say that you have to go elsewhere to see shots of me in another portfolio- I am just providing links IF someone wanted to see more images of me. The images (and I am only allotted 15) I have in my regular part IS complete and representative of my clothed work. But if that's the only reason, then I can live with that.

Well  you are great.  You have a fifties pinup figure and look that should be very much in demand.  Love your port.  You have a very pretty face.  And that Rubenesque figure that would work well in pin ups or retro stuff.

Your profile is good.  It says everything that needs to be said without going on and on.

I would hire you because you are a body type that I have not shot before.  Besides, I need to visit the Black Hills on my scooter.

Good luck.
