More like very little experience!

As for you.. I'd invest in some travel lights since you shoot outdoors
And too study how to use available light to add the extr kick to your images

Well i'm new to modelling and don't really know the first thing about photography so i wouldn't feel right ri[[ing into your images so what i will say is, I would love to see more vibrant colour in your port. Like this one:

That's just my opinion though, i love colour. Especially with some nice make-up and brilliant lighting.

Hope that's ok, i think your port is really beautiful so i couldn't think of a single negative thing to say. smile

You're a very beautiful young lady. I'd like to see you work on your facial expressions a bit because you have the same one in almost every photo. Modeling is really a form of acting that in some ways is more difficult because you have to convey a feeling in one shot. Practice in a mirror with your cell phone camera and see what you are capable of.  smile

Overall very nice portfolio, this image and the textures on the skin areas is the only one that seems out of place to my eyes.

http://www.modelmayhem.com/portfolio/pic/31233303 I think it would look better on curvy model with big breasts and some waist. This one is better:

And I agree you should find better photographer because these pictures are bad.

I'm giving you a general critique.
I do have a critique thread where ill go more in depth.

But you want to work with photographers and models who do a good Lon of selling the chains and I'm not getting that. I enjoy the pictures with the mannequins better

You're one of my favorite photographers on MM. You have a very distinctive and likeable style. You often come up with the unexpected. I've always thought that your best your work with Kelly Kickham. That says at least as much about her as about you. Your style has evolved somewhat since then. I'd like to see what the two of you could come up with as an encore.

Thank you for your kind words. I relayed this message to Kelli, and she thanks you as well.
We should come up with something very soon. wink

I think your top row is bringing down your port. Esp. the first pic. You have better images!

I would like to see some diversity in the models you choose. They all have very similar looks, which makes me wonder if you just don't know how to make a good picture with a girl with blonde hair and light skin, or very dark skin.

I would remove #4 from your portfolio, it doesn't fit in with the rest of your high fashion and glamour shots. Also, maybe improve the grammar on your profile? I really don't have much; your profile is pretty great.

You have a nice and very versatile look. You could sharpen your posing skills, and you use the same expression a lot. You could benefit from working with better photographers.

Great port overall!!!!  I like that not all the lighting is the same.  It shows some diversity.

My critique should be taken based on what your goal is.  Your pics are a bit edgy.  Not enough to appeal o the avant guard but just enough to leave the main stream wondering if you are the photographer for them.  This may actually define an untapped niche and if that works go for it but if you are wondering why you are not getting booked more lean more towards one or the other.

Just one man's opinion.

I shot all the photos in the portfolio, if that's what you mean.

Thanks for the critique.

Nice port overall your nude work is def your best genre I suggest being more selective about the work you put in there keep only your absolute best shots and toss the rest smile

Great port! If anything maybe I'd change you avatar? I think you have much better pictures to represent yourself with.

i see your portfolio and see no real direction, i ask myself what are you trying to accomplish or say as a model. what?

a gun toting xmas elf that eats something really bloody and gross, i'm guess a rodent that you shot? not sure

your first 3 photos show that you are beautiful and can seriously pull of a look if you really wanted to

put some effort into your brand and get serious, you have real potential
