Hello MM!

So I've been doing photography for awhile now on and off.  I've recently been doing more shoots for events and models.

I'd like some of your tips on how to improve, best/worst pictures, and ya know just general feedback thanks!

Here's a link to more of my work:

You aren't doing bad.

Just stop chopping off those pesky elbows when you can.

Practice
Practice some more
Shoot more models
Then Practice some more!

Don't delete anything in your port till you get to work with some more models...

Try to avoid those gimmick edits in photoshop if at all possible. You know the black and white and only one thing is in color..reminds me of Facebook.....

Don't post your phone and your email on here. Too many scams. Offer it up upon request.
