Nothing yet, I'm afraid! Having said that, I liked this shot - http://www.modelmayhem.com/portfolio/pic/29996049 it's got character. I'd like to see you tell more of a story with you shots - why is she standing there? Why is her pose so strong? Who is she?

I'd also like to see some non-destructive skin retouching. The group girl shot is fun and full of life but it loses impact with blurred skin. Keep going!

I can't work out if I love your work or hate it! I'd like to put your topless painting (first page, white skirt) into a list but don't seem to be able to. You certainly know what you are doing and have a distinctive style, and that particular image is beautiful - it puts me in mind of exotic scents and humidity. Whatever you are doing, it works for you - art should provoke a reaction smile

I have listed one of your images - I think your port is still on the 'up' though - there is so much more in you that you haven't explored yet. One to watch, I think.

It's never a waste of time smile

This shot is good- http://www.modelmayhem.com/portfolio/pic/33197371
It's natural and relaxed, the model looks engaging and genuine.

Much of the rest of your port is suffering from not-again-itis, a disease that is rife on mm. In other words, we've all seen it so many times before, it doesn't matter how well you do it, it's never going to 'wow'. I'd like to see you go back to where you were when you got the shot I mentioned and work forwards - shoot from the heart smile

Thanks darling! I am trying to work with photographers who prefer me to emote instead of just standing there looking pretty. They are harder to find than you'd think!

Listed - very beautiful, exquisite face. I'd like to see a shot of you in those incredible contortions you do where we can see you emote - they really are amazing smile

This is a bit mean. If you are easily offended, skip smile

This shot is incredible - http://www.modelmayhem.com/portfolio/pic/31920839
As is the one with the bodypainting, and several more. I've listed one of them, but I don't feel like I can put you in the 'greatest' list - not because the quality of your best shots isn't up there, but because I get the feeling you've really half-arsed it with a couple of shots in there.

There are photographers on this site who would kill for your eye, your models, your creations, and you are doing them and yourself a disservice by not pushing yourself as hard as you can. Go out, shoot until your fingers bleed and when you come home, be utterly brutal with your portfolio.

You are already great. Now go be awesome.

Listed, but not greatest - you can do better. There are some flashes of brilliance in your port and I won't be satisfied until you're blinding us with them.

Shoot with Paige. You two would make beautiful images together.

It's difficult to tell with you. Your port is massive and all very similar - I can't tell what is style and what is an inability to break the mold. If you cut back your port by about half, I'd have a better chance of making sense of it.

I have listed you, but I don't think you are giving it your all yet. Your port is solid but not very varied and I want to see that gorgeous face of yours in something avant garde and spectacular.

Hi mark!
Still a while to go my friend, I don't really get where you are going to or coming from in your portfolio - some of it is very post-work oriented, some of it quite minimalist - where are you taking your work?

Your work is technically beautiful, and a real breath of fresh air on a site with many a humdrum nude. However, I'm not going to list you yet. I think you can do better - once or twice, your images really told a story, and it really engaged me! But once I saw you could do that, I wanted them all to be as powerful.

Not yet. This has something - http://www.modelmayhem.com/portfolio/pic/32895570

Your models are spectacular, and you have flashes of beauty in your port. Weed out the weak stuff!
