Yes another one of these threads. How is this any different than the others. One, its a different set of eyes. I am not just a photographer but also the director of a design studio, so my job is to look at design and images all day. Second I will respond quicker than most. I will also try to suggest which avatar would be best.

Be warned..i do not like cheese and bad lighting smile

Yes definitely, has an editorial quality......the image is a bit small but I love the image on the right. I almost wish you would separate the two and just go with the right one so it would be slightly bigger.

Based on that image no. Looks like an old school stock photography. The bad lighting and processing doesn't help (which is no fault of yours).

No, not based on that avatar. Looks like a shot taken at a concert so unless you are a concert photographer its hard to get a feel of your photography.

Yes I would but because of your profile not the photo (if that makes sense). The photo has a weird angle...would have been better if you had been turned slightly more towards the camera. Despite that I can tell from your face that I would want to work with you.

i'd pass, not my style...the lighting is really harsh. Some softer light would help.

not based on that image. The photography and make up isn't very flattering.
Most of the lighting on your photos are a bit flat. Try to work with a better team. Perhaps something with more dramatic lighting would work better for fitness. Some quick examples via google

no, too odd of a concept to get a good feel for you as a model. The tones are a bit too orange also. It's tough as a model because the quality of photography can hurt.

solid photo but a little bland. Based on that photo I would say no.

Had it been something like this I would have gone with yes
