These striped stockings show up in four of your images. That is three too many. Get rid of this one and and one or two more.

Your AVI is a great choice. This character portrait has great composition, light, and is just plain beautiful.

But do get rid of your other similar portrait by same photog as it drags your port down.

Your following three images must go asap. And next time, ask for artistic rendering BEFORE you post your image, not after.

Welcome to MM sas!

I would delete your current AVI. While it is artistic, white lips are not flattering to your beautiful face.

THis one should be your AVI

Get rid of your smoking image. Not only it's bad for your health, I see no artistic merit.

Thank you - it's so odd the way certain images are picked up on some sites but disliked on others; MM hates that image but in the original editorial and on tumblr + dA it had the best feedback of all the shots!

My apologies for  skipping you Francis, it was not intentional. Your work is captivating for its creativity and beauty. Having said that, I would delete ALL your images as they are all composites. Pick the best one of two in each composite image, and post that one. Otherwise you confuse the viewer.

To delete just one I propose the male/female combo. While each individual image is good, I am confused how the two are related. Are they a couple, or is there perhaps other connection which I failed to notice. A caption may help.

My favorite is this one for its unique, Matisse style effect

One image is enough to convey that you have a gorgeous natural smile. Delete this image, pick one of of the nine, and post that one, and one only. I would propose keeping second top row image.

Not a fan of car images. It devalues your port.

Also remove this one as you are abviously posing for the camera.

This B&W is artistic, I love your emotive expression, your fabulous hair and slim waist

As advised in my last  post to a male model - do not show your bare body if your are not muscular as you do not want to compete head on against one of the many muscular jocks here. So delete the B&W shot. I know there is some artistic merit to that image, so if you are here for artistic expression, keep it. If however you seek to get modelling jobs, then say bye bye to it (I am also not fan of male underwear images)
http://photos.modelmayhem.com/photos/120808/08/502282394dada_m.jpg

I sort of like your vintage image, which projects you as a country gentleman.

Too many images from your Quar B session. They all look basically the same. Keep one and get another photographer or two to get you a wider range look, with different hairdo and be fully dressed.  If I were to recommend a specific one to delete it would be the last one as you look like you are holding your breath

Besides not being a fan of blood and vampire imagery, I dont think this image will help you get a decent paid modeling gig
http://www.modelmayhem.com/portfolio/pic/18780226

And while you are at it, get rid of this one as well, as it does not capture your thigs in the most  flattering way

http://photos.modelmayhem.com/photos/110929/20/4e853dfb66d75_m.jpg


This one is emotive, and well captured by your photographer
http://photos.modelmayhem.com/photos/110806/02/4e3d042522696_m.jpg

BTW I read in your profile "I am currently In the process of writing a poetry book. I have taken 2 years of ballet and 4 of Jazz dance." I love working with poets and ballet dancers smile

Four images are from your brick wall scene. Get rid of a couple, including this one as I find your expression rather goofy.
http://photos.modelmayhem.com/photos/120808/20/50232f690eebf_m.jpg

Here is my favorite. Ok, so maybe its not showig your best expression, but this image nicely captures your perfectly formed boobs. I know, I know I am supposed to be above all that here, but hey, I am just taking a brief break from all this to be just a plain GWC smile

http://photos.modelmayhem.com/photos/120803/12/501c22b1d96bc_m.jpg

Seriously now, this one projects your beauty and emotion in the best light. But dont use this image as your AVI, as this is a landscape aspect ratio. For AVI use portrait style.

Not a fan of your AVI as her smile is forced, and your photography here is not at its best. You have shown you can do better.
http://photos.modelmayhem.com/photos/120812/14/50281999f008a_m.jpg

Also, you are using way too many Rachel images. Get rid of them all, keeping 1 or 2. Same goes for your gypsy belly dancer. BTW my favorite of Rachel is this one for having captured her gorgeous smile in a good composition.
http://photos.modelmayhem.com/photos/120707/05/4ff8296655e38_m.jpg


This one is emotive and shows decent photography technique on your part

You ought to get rid of ALL your  images with your boyfriend. While Dmitriy is indeed handsome as you claim in your profile, your poses are staged and contrived. Emotions are vacant.  Perhaps the two of you may have great chemistry off stage, but you have not conveyed it here.
http://photos.modelmayhem.com/photos/120527/23/4fc31f4cf0d5f_m.jpg

I want to take the opportunity to voice my feelings regarding escorts - here is a quote from your profile: "Oh, and I bring my boyfriend as an escort with me if it is the first time that I shoot with you."

ESCORTS DISTURB THE CREATIVE ENERGY FLOW BETWEEN MODEL AND PHOTOGRAPHER. This energy is intangible, yet absolutely necessary for creating amazing work which I am convinced you are capable of. How can one be creative under an atmosphere of mistrust? While I do allow presence of escorts myself, NONE of my images shot with a watchful eye present (even if the escorts lurked in the adjoining room) I deem of top quality.

To address your valid concerns for your safety, WORK ONLY WITH REPUTABLE PHOTOGRAPHERS and do your homework by contacting 2 or 3 of his models orior to the shoot to CHECK REFERENES.

Ok so there is one image with your BF  that I actually do like - it is  your bridal shot. It looks genuine and the light is great.

http://photos.modelmayhem.com/photos/120715/21/50039b94ac6f3_m.jpg

Your Stephen Speckman is is a rather creative and captivating.

http://photos.modelmayhem.com/photos/120625/21/4fe93d058e120_m.jpg

As a final word of advice, try to keep your port down to 20 very best images and your port value will zoom up astronomically.

BTW did you know that you do not actually have to delete an image permanently? You can simply hide it and if you wish you can restore it, with all commments, for full view at a later time

Welcome to MM Kerri. The following image should go. It is just a snapshot with no concept behind it.
http://photos.modelmayhem.com/photos/120811/15/5026dee68f6bc_m.jpg

Also get rid of this one of Yas'Ming as you have posted two much better images of her.

http://photos.modelmayhem.com/photos/120811/15/5026e0039698e_m.jpg

As a rookie, you are having a great start doing portraits and you seem to do well on composition. My favorite one is your heart image. While your photographic technique nor her expression shine, you are showing interest in creating concepts. Keep it up and you will do great.
