Hey guys, this may be my first time doing this, but I'd like some straightforward opinions on my portfolio images. Improvements needed, flaws and what-not.

Re: your portfolio. It's okay... but has some issues. Don't post images from a given shoot/same outfit side by side. You have two very similar images posted next to each other. The second image, being so similar to the first one, adds nothing to your portfolio.

You have a lot of swimwear stuff. It's easy to see why, you have an impressive figure. But the poses are similar (all of them are pretty much straight on shots) so there's nothing new or interesting. If you are going to llama swimwear, at least do and post significantly different poses in each suit. For example: turn your back to the camera, and look back over your shoulder, etc..

Just my opinion.

Hey there ok I agree with Effective, don't pose two similar images side by side. Imo remove the one on the left as the lighting on that one isn't flattering on you. You have a nice look for commercial modelling but I think you have the potential to pull off more fashion shoots. This is where your port is lacking in, not your fault though so don't worry. I think it would be good for you to engage a stylist to shoot more editorial styled shoots to increase the variety of your port.

Hope that's helpful big_smile

Just a few quick comments. As mentioned above, don't display more than one image of any one look. It's actually distracting.

This image does nothgin for you

It almost looks snapshotty, has poor cropping and brings down your entire port.

You have some nice work I think you just need to do some house cleaning.

You're a complete package why does everyone cut off your legs at weird spots? It's like their going for a head shot and can't commit. Maybe try sitting down so they can get all of you and still keep you close.

True story. I hand't noticed the leg thing. General rule of thumb. If you show the knees then show the feet. If you show the elbows then show the hands. Anything less becomes awkward.
