When I approached a model here, I need to show them my best works.  My MM account does not have enough place.  Right now,  I am sending them link to my accounts with Flickr and Issuu, but they have some degree of censorship toward nude photos.  Both Flickr and Issuu do not allow non-member to view it.  So some of the girls cannot see my best works.  Any idea? Thanks.

If you can't show your "best" in 20 shots or less, what good will 100 be?  Do you plan on overwhelming prospective subjects?  "Wow, this guy's got 200 shots in his port -- he MUST be good!"

Non members can see what you post and no nudity restrictions as far as I know

Because some models have asked me to send them more samples of my works. Besides, my MM port contained photos that are work-related and uninteresting.

Yeah, Tumblr are good, no membership for lurkers, just an annoying eternal scroll for visitors if you don't layout your page correctly.

Why? hmm

Post here what you want to shoot here.

You can always create a second account to display your nudes if you want to keep them separate.

In 1998 I launched a website. Currently it contains over 700 original images
going back to my beginnings in the 1970s. For 15 years it’s worked well for
me. So I’d suggest that you create a website.

Your own website is probably the way to go, but I would also suggest setting up another profile on here as an alternative.  15 pics of what you want to shoot should be enough to get models interested in you.

Thanks.... I just felt my MM port is too unorganized.  I am just going to upload 20 of my best works.  And I do not want to pay for a website yet.

Get your own web site.  Mine has 10,000+ images (it's been around for a long time).

Get your own website or web blog. Link it on your MM and also try to include a couple shots in your port for teasers.

okay a couple of things:

*20 pics should be more than enough to showcase your best work. remember that your portfolio is only as strong as your weakest picture.

*don't post work on here that is boring and not interesting. only show the work you are open to shooting. if you don't want to mix nude work with commercial work, then open a second seperate account for your nude work

*tumblr is free, easy, accessible and a great way to show more of your work to show to models if they are interested. check it out.

You could always create a portfolio of images in Dropbox and provide a link.

The whole point of MM is to network so I am trying to figure out why anyone would post photos here that even he/she believes are uninteresting. I can see a model or another photographer telling me something that I did is uninteresting, but I can't see posting one that I already know is uninteresting even to me.

deviantart is another place, but I think the viewer will need to be a member. They do allow nudes.

I have never asked a photographer to see more than 20 of his best photos that were posted on here. maybe if he only had 2 photos, i'd ask. and MM is pretty inexpensive if you want more photos and you don't want to pay for your own website (which isn't very expensive either).
