I'm game

You give a mystic touch to some of your photos and your models seem to respond to you with some great poses and expressions. You are a superior art-nudes photographer with a great imagination and you’re on your way to becoming a stand-out. I saw some skin issues but that is minor. I’m sure you’ll figure it out.

Many a photographer could benefit from looking at your MM portfolio.

$45,000 per annum, You-rock-the-nude-award.

I can't wait until you put out a book.

An accomplished hair model, with a quite a catalogue of credits. Your hair is amazing and your face angelic and so interesting. I don’t find your full-length as effective but in expressions, angles, you induce photographic rapture.  You inspire photographers and creative people.

Le Muse Award: $65,000 per annum.

Wusel: this is good modellng: http://www.modelmayhem.com/portfolio/pic/30079863

http://www.modelmayhem.com/portfolio/pic/30875174

this could have been glorious. Your body looks awkward where your body should match the power of your hair. You’re 5 foot 11 but the proportions appear to be not quite there fashion-modelling-wise. On that shot you posed awkwardly because you don't know your angles and what looks good. 

$5000 Part-timer.  It's great-that-you're-keeping your day job-award. You can do this part-time and you may be doing it part-time. You can  model work for a small boutique for runway.

To advance: practice expressions and poses in the mirror for fifteen minutes a day. One exercise: Smile. Close the eyes. Make you face look contemplative. Open the eyes and see if you're close. If not, just close the eyes, keeping the muscles of the face the same otherwise and then open and slowly adjust, feeling where the muscles tense so you can recall it effectively. Good luck.

Im just starting out give me some critiques pls! lol

this looks like lens distortion, you using a lens that’s way too wide: http://www.modelmayhem.com/portfolio/pic/29968886.  You may also have your shutter speed too low, under a 100 and you’re not on a stand.

http://www.modelmayhem.com/portfolio/pic/30872512

shows improvement and is worth putting in your book.

I don’t want to rate you as your just starting out as you point out.

I like the idea of this thread

while I don't rely on photography to make a significent portion of my income I sometimes wonder if I tried to do so how I would fare in my market ( meaning my city as I dont really consider MM to be a market )

my feeling is that I would not fare at all well in trying to shoot fashion or glamour as there are many much better photographers who themselves are challenged by the limited work available

I think though I could cut it as a wedding photographer though - shooting at the lower end of the market

but what say you regarding my fashion /glamour relative to this market of MM ?

http://www.modelmayhem.com/portfolio/pic/19902296 18+ flaw in the hot hand. You’re not far from becoming a really good fashion and glamour/nude photographer. Pay attention to skin tone in particular. I think you can compose but the skin tone is just off, which often is about lighting and exposure.
$22,000 Maybe you've-got-steam award. Still part-time but starting to occasionally dazzle. But can you afford new tires?. The roads are tough on cars here.

Shows your promise. You can put together interesting images but often you do mundane instead. You need to push yourself harder and communicate better with the models. When you can communicate with a model you put together interesting tonality.

You really connected with this guy: http://www.modelmayhem.com/portfolio/pic/22029127

Yes, you directed yourself magnificently. You told yourself what to do with authority. Communicate better with models and you’ll get better poses and angles. Take your bikini shot. You got the sun to cooperate but the model has her legs too drawn up so it’s just not as magnificent as it could have been.

$35,000 per annum.  All-your-rocket-needs-is-mission-control-award.

Oh, you’re starting out.

http://www.modelmayhem.com/portfolio/pic/30863563 if you changed the white balance on the raw image you might get an even better photo.

I'll stop there. That photo has great potential. When you see it, you'll start to become great.

http://www.modelmayhem.com/portfolio/pic/27723619 18+ is gorgeous.

You have a nice body. You need to master facial expressions and makeup. A good makeup artist will enhance the bone structure, and really draw attention to your eyes.  You can really rock as an art nude. You’re direction is clear and that is often the path to success.

$40,000 GOOD:you're good, but we are flooded with good and how can you become great is the burning economic question.

Conclusion: you’re capable but not exciting.  You do have some retouching skill.   

I think you more capable than what I have seen. I looked at the woman-in-the-box-series. One or two standout but I feel you could work on your lighting.

Thanks! Other than the 'young man' part, I agree entirely. smile
