I'm finally a year in and I was hoping maybe some experienced people would check my pace and see if I'm heading in the right direction.  Any input would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!

You're doing ok for glamour.

Your main problems are you have too many of the same looks in your shot. Delete the least favorites of each look. One or two of the same outfit/style of shot should be in your port at the same time. No more.

This shot is a really good glamour shot:

Same with this:

I don't really see too many "Bad shots". Just too many pictures with not enough variety. Delete the old ones as well. But you are in a good direction.

Too much!!!

Trim down your portfolio to your top 12-20 best images.   I agree with other comments about similar looks.  Row #5 seems to have all the same facial expression.

+1, also think about eliminating very similar pose images. You have two 'chain' images that aside from one being B&W and one being color are essentially the same pose.

Just my opinion.

When I look at a port I don't care how many images of the same shoot are in it. I care that you can be in great shape at the shoot and that you look comfortable in front of the camera. I can get the model into the correct pose if she is inexperienced.

Let me know if you ever hit the NW. smile
