there's nothing to rip apart, but at the same time there is a lot more to do if you want to score in this game.

The shots are cool and you look good in them.

In the non traditional castings (not commercial or fashion) having a look is key, but it is much more than that.
I work with Mosh who is one of the very best out there. What is unusual about her and others who are trying to follow, is that she does her looks, she does the styling, make up etc. In addition to being a great model there is an entire aesthetic that she handles.
I know going in what I can count on.  She totally owns it.

In your case where you promote the unusual side rather than commercial side, I would need to know of what you bring to the shoot that is uniquely you if that makes sense.

I like the dark hair best of all I think

Sadly that dark hair is a wig -__-

I definitely want to find my market. I love to do edgy, editorial, high fashion, absurdist concepts and http://assets.modelmayhem.com/images/smilies/scary.pnglooks but I'm finding that most of that work is unpaid and doesn't lead me very far. I'm short, but I have the tiniest hope of getting into an agency (pfft) and don't want to look too old! Should I just keep only wearing wigs? hahaha

I am no expert but I like your work, your expression and attitude.

It is funny that your profile says you won't shoot nudes, but there are nude pictures on your portfolio smile

Good luck!

I would second this. I would like to see a clean Polaroid in your portfolio-- full length-- no posing. Many photographers will want to see one. We wanna know what we're getting wink Other than that I would say careful with the bruises (nitpicking)

But I love your look and would shoot with you without a second thought. You bring a unique look and personality through your shots. Dig it. Peace

Funnily enough the photographer enhanced the bruising in those pictures. Just his style I guess and I don't really mind because I seriously am ALWAYS bruised. It's a problem for sure but that's what happens when you work full time food service! Thank you for your feedback, I would love to shoot some polaroids soon!!

1.http://photos.modelmayhem.com/photos/130422/12/5175920033057_m.jpg I love the idea but it may not be your fault that the puhotographer was more intrested in shooting your legs than paying attention to your gorgeous face.

2. http://photos.modelmayhem.com/photos/130411/13/51671dbda21b7_m.jpg It isn't your fault. Really it isn't.
Blame it on the Person takeing the photograph. I WOULD, A frame is a frame with out no shame. unless you frame it with out any fame. I think who shot this was insane.
3. http://photos.modelmayhem.com/photos/130422/12/517591f3a178d_m.jpg As a model you sit or stand and wait for direction and in hopes that the photographer will do his or her job in direction of your pose and that they frame you in a good form so that the pose and the background compliment each other that is the job of photographer not yours so dont blame yourself. please dont.
4, http://photos.modelmayhem.com/photos/130402/18/515b83df10315_m.jpg Funning lil sweet face such a sweet innocent face yet I dont blame you for makeing funny faces at the photographer Good for you. But if i was shooting this image I would have taken advantage of your your commical take and would have clown whited your face given your lips the redes color and tinted your hair green Oh what a Joker you could have made.
5.http://photos.modelmayhem.com/photos/130314/15/514249944efdb_m.jpg Perfection Complet ART It takes time to Create that which is meant to be famous. Stick to the Creativeness and you will always have Greatness.

That spiky face one was yours? I saw that awhile ago and, yknow. Love.

http://www.modelmayhem.com/portfolio/pic/32401257
This one doesn't jump out at me in the zoomed out version or the zoomed in. You're still gorgeous in it, it just doesn't seem to match the quality of some of your others.

http://www.modelmayhem.com/portfolio/pic/32031421
This looks like interesting styling to me, but the photo is kind of frustrating. I don't know what I'm supposed to focus on. I would probably change this one out for a different one in that same shoot.

http://www.modelmayhem.com/portfolio/pic/32339658
Meh. Judging from the others, you probably have better options in your photo stockpile (IMHO). It's cute, but to me the brown hair right next to the short hair kind of makes the brown look fake and plasticky.

You're gawgeous, dahling.
