You are a lovely model and you have theright stuff for the nude work that you've done.  You work is going to get much better.

Keep it up, I like what I see.

Shoot with as many different photographers as you can just to get a variety of work in your portfolio. You definitely have a strong presence in your nude work, and I see you want to do more outdoor nudes. I think that would be a good thing to pursue.

Regrettably I have to say that your posing makes you look more like a contortionist than a model - I guess it's as much the photographer's fault as your own. My advice is for you to better understand how your body frame works and what it's capable of - and learn what looks good/natural/accomplished. Keep at it smile

I was with you until I saw that last picture in your port.  I would toss it away immediately.

Can I ask you what is wrong with that last image? are you referring to the back shot and holding the heals?

Sadly I see nothing in your port worth keeping.

Thanks for you opinion.

Well, I can't have an empty Port. I need to find some better photographers, and for me it takes alot of trial and error in learning to llama correctly as it is for everyone i'm sure unless there a natural. smile

Fly out to Baltimore. For a very reasonable rate my partner Donna (mm#1400896) and I will coach you, host you, and give you enough images and knowledge to redo your port and start getting paid work. smile

Sounds like a great idea, sadly I do not have the funds to fly out anywhere as well as not being able to leave even for a little while from my life here in Colorado. Otherwise I would say yes lets do it! - Maybe in the near future it ca be something discussed.

Please add me smile

Marie,

You have a really great look and I love the shot below.  You really need to find some photographers, in your area, and do some more shoots.  There is some beautiful potential that's going to look stunning!  :-)
