Not sure I "get" the concept of what to put into a portfolio. I would appreciate any comments on technical aspects of individual photos but most want feedback on the "look and feel" of this set of pictures.

You are all over the place. Outdoor, indoor but with natural light, a splash of studio, some smiling.

A portfolio can be varied in style and nature but it has to leave an impression of what it is you want to do.

Try trimming down the pictures you don't really want to do first, then organise the rest in a logical way. You can try to do a series of pictures rather than one offs.

The over all on this set as you call it lacks direction and will power to have your own voice. You have some good images but they are drowning in the weaker ones.

Thank you I appreciate the feedback from one of the best portrait photographers on this site. Your first images of male models really captured my attention.  I'll think through where I want to focus over my next few shoots.

For me the idea of a portfolio to sell your work to models, show them your lighting and processing skills.

Going to call these photos the best at showing your work




Merry Christmas and Happy New Year
