I have just deleted every image in my port and replaced with stuff taken in the last 12 months(with one exception).

My questions are......
1.  Am I missing anything?
2.  Is it balanced enough?
3.  Would you shoot with me if I offered you TF?

Thanks in advance.

A little light on alt... One image of a collage is all I 'identified' as alt.

Alt is not one of my genres so I may be missing some.

The half face avatar doesn't do much for me, but I have definite ideas on what
an avatar should do for a portfolio.

No, I don't want to model for you... sorry. LOL

Alex, thanks for taking the time to have a look and voice your opinion.
You don't think the tattooed girl with blue/green hair is 'alt'?  smile

I agree with you on the general lack of alt though, so I have changed my wording as I used to shoot a lot more in that style but it has, kind of just dawned on me I haven't really done that style for some time.

I would be interested in your thoughts on what you see an avatar should do for a portfolio?
Thanks again.

Is it really that dull that there is nothing to comment on?
I would rather hatred than apathy!
Anyone?

Just some random thoughts

If the idea is to sell the model then the best images would be those that showcase the model best

Half a Megan with roots showing might not be doing it

Interesting photo for a photographer’s portfolio, but for a model not so sure
[Could see it as an advertisement image]

Think these styles of images would be great in a models portfolio
