I would really value some honest opinions on my look. I am by no means llama material and I see llamaling as a fun hobby. Feel free to be honest but not rude! Thanks so much in advance :-)

We just had a discussion about the phrase "model material" in your earlier thread. One thing I can tell you is you need to have confidence in yourself.

Getting work in this or any business is about selling your product, in this case your product is YOU. If you come here and say I'm not model material but will you hire me anyway isn't going to get you very far.

Now, do you want critique on your look or your images?
On your look directly relating to you, you have a unique face. This can be good or not depending on what you're trying to do. However you don't seem to have any decent expressions in your portfolio. Remember what I said about the ability to express.

Now on your images, a couple are ok. Most of them aren't. They're all over processed.

This is decent, has decent expression but is over processed

Poor composition and again way over processed

Terrible composition and crop, yet again way to much processing.

Decent composition, poor lighting and expression

And just to make sure, did you read this and what to expect when asking for critique?

Its hard to tell.
Too much editing, not facing camera, and snap shot pics.

You say you have abandoned warehouse shoots and unique vintage clothes so why is none of this showcased in your portfolio?

I bet you're great to shoot with and I can tell you're lovely from the photos you have. You do need better photos. You will get them.  Use MM to search for photographers in your area, who do good profile shots (in focus, close up, good lighting, good processing) and see if any of them will be willing to work with you. (I sure would, if I were across the pond. You have lovely eyes.)

Forget about modeling and channel all your energy from it towards a better direction- acting.  Height wont be an issue, you can play dress up and your open, expressive eyes will make for great viewing either on stage to screen
