I'm in. However, some people have said that my port is all over the place; that there is no consistency in style. That actually is by design. I want to shoot all styles, all genres, and be able to adapt according to the project at hand.

Please and thank you.  My work is so different from what all the younger models do that I may not have anything for you though.

What do you think? smile

No list for you yet - your poses can be good and your figure is lovely, but your expressions need work, and your portfolio isn't at top standard for now. You seem to be on the right track though, there is improvement in your newer work. Keep going!

I am sorry - it wasn't intentional.

I have listed you - your work is beautiful and your models exquisite smile

So close! Your portfolio is right on the cusp, and only let down by a couple of shots. Be brutal and cut anything that isn't your very best. You are in the top 10% - make it to the very top!

You have been listed - your work is amazing! Your portfolio could still do with a cut down, though. Not all of it is doing you true justice. Definitely one of MM's top models smile

Not quite, I'm afraid. Your figure is gorgeous and your face is lovely, but you need to work with a wider variety of photographers than you have. I'd love to see some more erotic/nude work from you, like the anonymous images you have already. A lot of your portfolio is 'photographer shots' rather than 'model shots' - keep going. You are on the right track smile

Not yet. I'd like to see a wider variety in your portfolio before I listed you - your work is gorgeous, but it is very similar. Also, you may want to re-think your avatar. You are under-selling yourself! Looking forward to seeing more from you smile

I have listed you - your are right, your work is all over the place, but if that is what you are happy doing then that is more important than anything else. Definitely one to watch smile

Not quite there yet. I get the impression you are still finding out what your style is. I'd advise that you shoot as much as you can, anything you can, until you really know what you want smile

Your work is amazing! But, you really annoyed me so I'm not going to list you.

Your nude work is AWESOME but there is so little of it! More nudes or no list! Mush!

Not yet. Your models are gorgeous and your technical skills are good, but your concepts need work! Take a chance on some crazy ideas and get yourself out of your box - it might open some new doors for you. Keep going!

Your work is really beautiful, but it is all very similar. I want to see more, and a wider variety- take some of those gorgeous soft light techniques into the city, or a beach - shoot some high fashion, or beauty. It could be a disaster, or it could be amazing! Keep going smile

You have some absolutely amazing shots, but I can't list you because many of them are drowned out by same-y, much-of-a-muchness snapshots... shots that would seem good or even great in someone else's portfolio are outclassed to such an extent by your avant garde works and concept pieces that your portfolio has an uneven and disjointed look to it

Don't exactly know what 'same-y much of a muchness snapshots' are... hmmmm... hmm... lol... maybe clarification on that would be cool... wink    I've shot 100s of events for over 2 decades... so that 'disjointed look' is probably due to a huge mixture of themes spanning over all that time... and thanks for your input... I think... wink

So I have been without Internet for a month or so, and to dip my feet back into the waters of MM, I'd like to add to my 'this is how it's done - the best of model mayhem' lists.

I am going to be very very picky but don't be shy, if I don't find anything in your port I will try and point you in the direction I'd like to see your work go smile

Welcome back.

Thank you in advance for looking and I hope something might make the list, I've still got some learning to do for sure.
