I'm looking for honest feedback on my portfolio. What you like, don't like, add, remove, think I should do differently, etc... I appreciate your time and feedback!

You've got a lot of solid images in your port but personally I'd consider getting rid of these ones...

(Another that feels like a snap shot...just brings the overall quality of your portfolio down, especially considering the one beside it from the same shoot that is much more dynamically lit and interesting)

(Low quality photograph and you look kind of derp-y, again with a much better shot from what I'm assuming is the same shoot as above)

This is by far your most professional looking shot. But, please remove that "thing" beneath your thumb, I don't even want to get into an argument over what it is. Be gone.

Work more with Ray, he is good.

Or, get some  MORE quality tests.

Everything else is just so "stock Photography" and "my friend took a shot of me". which is kind of ridiculous considering that you do have THE LOOK, and I'm not saying you're Tony Ward, but you can do some serious things.

Sounds good, I agree. The bike shot was a BTS of that magazine shoot. I'll remove it though. Thanks for your feedback and time!

LoL stock photography? Half or most of my portfolio is shot by the same photographer, ray. I need to experience outside the box and shoot with other photographers as well. Thanks for the compliment and feedback. I appreciate your time!

What picture should I put as my main photo? Also, what kind of shoots should I schedule? High fashion, Athletic?

Obviously you have potential and a good body, but I think it would be interesting try more expressions and interesting compositions.

Yeah, it's a bit of dappled light I think, but it does look a lot like Michael's dinkle poking out! Easily got rid of by cloning.

I like this shot too, a nice style.
