I assume you're looking for opportunities to improve so I'll give you my 2¢ straight up.
Make up your mind on compensation, you pay, we trade, I pay. I know it's a dilemma when its your passion. I struggle too.
You might be overselling the amazing backgrounds, let your work speak.
Biggest thing to me is bikinis at night. Makes no sense. Try fashion nudes at night with a little more architecture. Only way I can see night bikini is a soft campfire glow.

Keith thanks so much....I will make some changes to profile based on ur advice.
As far as shooting bikini pics at sunset or night, I'm not sure I understand why this is not ok to do??
Can u elaborate if you have time?
Again thanks for the help...

Good portfolio, but in model perspective, some of your images are too dark and you loose the model rather then achieve the silhouette capture.
I personally agree with Keith that if your going to do dark imagery, do it to accentuate the curves and natural beauty of the model(s). And for that, typically implied/topless/nude is called for.
I like the swimsuit concept, but I'd rather see it in light of day then cover of night/evening.
Just the personal opinion of a model.
Good luck to ya!
Have a great New Years!

Thanks so much for your critique....
Do you think it's a case of my model being underexposed ? Or do you think it's the concept of shooting swim ware at sunset ?
Thanks for you time.

I'll give some advice regarding your written profile:
It's pretty unimportant the equipment you use and which editing software. The statements come across as being tech-centric. I doubt any models would (should) care.
I drop all references to equipment.
One more thing: Don't use selective color for anything. Just say no.
