I have seen many of your ports, mainly because I have started several threads and, in order to play the game, I have had to watch them to answer you.

I always read your profile before having a look at your port. Sometimes I find that your port is what I was expecting after reading your profile, while other times I am really surprised by what I see.

What is your case? Does your port match your profile?

The question is..... will the surprise be good or bad?

Good or bad? I think that 50/50.

The shots with llamas are not to the level one would expect, while the rest fit quite well with your profile.

Doesn't match.

I guess you don't have shots to show what you currently want to do, since you say that you want your port to be what it used to be.

You have chosen for your avatar one of your best shots, a lingerie one, as some other shots, but this is not something you say in your profile that you want to do, while other kind of shots you want to do are not in your port.

Yes, it does.

I would even say that some of your shots show, in some way, a bit of what one can deduce from your profile about how your personality is.

However, I miss a couple of runway shots. Also, and much more important, I think that your current avatar is not a good choice.....it is a shot of an ordinary girl in lingerie, and you have shots where it is clear that you are a much more beautiful than that.

Yes, it matches.

It is clear that you want to be creative, like to experiment new things and prefer outdoors. My only but -and it is a minor one- is that seeing the huge list of models in your profile, I would have expected some more variety of models in your port.....they all are very similar to each other.

It does'nt match.

Maybe it is because you are starting a nude port now, but after reading such a long profile, where you explain how experienced photog you are, it is strange to find only 7 shots and all of the same model.

Thanks for your views...

When you say the models are similar do you mean 95% asian ?    If so keep in mind I live in Vancouver where it's 96% asain.

Before last year, I last shot professionally in 1981. Most of my negatives and virtually all of my prints were destroyed in a flood in 1986, Even if they hadn't been, they would be dated now.

Also, some 18+ sets are pending publication and won't be available for portfolio use for six months, give or take.

Just for my information, how many portfolio-ready nude shoots would you suggest that I have before starting an 18+ portfolio?

Thanks!

It is quite difficult, after reading your profile, to have an idea of what to expect, since your profile is so short.

However, when you see your port, it is clear that it reflects what you say, since all your shots are of a very creative and artistic quality. Your creativity is only aimed at artistic nudes, though.

Your wife is right, but I do understand why your profile is as it is, and I agree with your point of view concerning all this thing of being in MM.

And your port is what you would expect after reading your profile.....shots where the aim is to enjoy the shoot, to make the models express themselves.

Yes, I think it matches.

Your port is faithful to your profile, your look and the kind of shots are what one would expect.

The only thing that I didn't expect are the several shots taken outdoors, since I would have said you would be an almost exclusively studio model.

Absolutely yes!

Fine arts, light and shadow effects, low key shots, outdoor nudes......this is what your profile says, and that is what your port shows.

It is clear that concerning models, you are more interested in shapes than faces. I am really impressed by your "three graces" shot, my congrats for such an achievement.

I would say 50/50.

Concerning retro, dark and bizarre shots is ok, but as for fashion glamour shots your port is not what I would expect.

I like most of your images though, I really like them.

Ok, let's say that your port does not show anything different from what you say in your profile, although one would expect more shots in the way you express that are not currently there. I guess it's a question of time that you include those kind of shots.

As for your avatar, I think it is a nice image, but does not say much about your amazing figure and beauty, I would choose other one.

Well, after reading your profile, my thoughts were 'Maruschke is a not very experienced model, with few shots, probably due to the time she took to dedicate to marriage and mothership, and with the right attitude to become a great model'

And then your port told me that I was right thinking so. Even more, I learnt that you have a lovely smile, and attractive face and lots of possibilities.

However, I also took a look at ypur list 'things I would love to do'. I have to say that you are far ftom those kind of shots, but it is not your fault......those amazing images require two things, apart from a good photographer - you can find it - and a good model - you can be it - : these two things are money and many people involved.

I hope you can get both.

No, I was not meaning asian, although what you say about Vancouver explains that. But I was also meaning the kind of models - nothing bizarre or uncommon here - and their attitude......they don't seem to have lpts of initiative, they seem to be more used to take direction, but it is only an impression that might be wrong, of course.

No, no, I don't mean your 18+ port is not ok, I don't know how many shoots you need to have done before starting the port.......I suppose you'll increase your port with time, it's only that your huge and precise profile does not match your port NOW, imho.

Yes, I think most of your shots reflect what you say in your profile: natural light - very well used imho -, unique perspective, etc.

However, about telling stories, I would like to see more shots where the model expression tells the story, or contributes to it.

In my case?  not completely -  the images I have on MM are actually atypical of what I shoot day in and day out - 

My MM port represents more of what I shoot for fun and enjoyment, while my profile depicts more of what I do for my regular gig....

Your profile describes you and your interests very well, but for some reason that I am not able to explain, I didn't have clear expectations when I had a look at your port.

It was not a surprise to see your shots, but I could not say that they were what I expected either. I noticed that your best images are headshots, in my opinion, and maybe that do reflect, in some way, what you can deduce from your profile, but I would love to see more of other kind of shots.

Difficult to say, because your profile is so short and it is not very descrptive. You don't express your preferences or what you consider you are really good at.

However, seeing your avatar, I have to say that the rest of your port is in the same line, so no surprises there. You are pretty and have a nice figure, I would love to see more shots soon.
