I realize it's a fun thing to be able to say ''hey, I got 200 photos from 200 different shoots!'' but other than that it has no added value. On the contrary... personally, whenever I see a portfolio like that, it doesn't leave a good impression with me. and people don't check out more than the first 20-30 pictures anyway.

Had a look... to be honest with ya... so much of your port looks like the same kind of work over and over again... Wanna see a port that has 100's of shots from 1000's of different shoots?... click here...

Have a look and tell me what you think.
- you had a lot of fun loading up 200 images without realizing it's not as fun for us to view those 200 images.
- you're trying to impress us with volume. As you might tell from the responses so far, that's a counterproductive strategy.
- the great majority of those images pretty much look the same. Same lighting technique. Same uninspired expressions. Same angles. Same range of poses. You do mostly competent work but you show very little variety in your style. Without variety, thirty images are too much for a portfolio.
I've always been told to attempt to post images that derive from a completely different look each (if not a different photographer and shoot) but quantities over 40-50 just take forever to load on some computers and smart phones.
You do seem to have a nice sense of variety, though there are lots of other avenues to explore like high fashion, vintage glamour, etc.
