Let's have a look at your port and I will tell you why I would pay you to model for me. Or not.

You have a trim figure and an interesting/beautiful face face.  You have a nice smile and judging from your pictures a playful attitude and a sense for modeling.

I would suggest some swimsuit shots or lingerie shots if you are comfortable doing that.  Your port should represent the broadest limits to which you will go. Only  you know what that is.

Your profile lists the things that discourage me:
Nude-It has been covered in the check off list.  While I certainly respect your right to model only in the manner you feel comfortable, there is no point in bringing it up again.  The fact is there are all sorts of pictures and photographers where you would be comfortable nude.  You have put up a barrier that will keep you from ever finding out.
Bring an escort:  Once again I respect and encourage models to be safe.  Putting this up as a requirement just adds another barrier.  Escorts can be a distraction to a photographer.  I know I am safe.  You do not.  Be careful and don't accept a gig where you don't feel safe.

Speech impediment:  I am encourage about your full disclosure.  While this has nothing to do with you modeling ability it does give me confidence that you are being honest. 

I hope this helps and that it is received in the spirit in which it was sent.

I looked over your port with interest.  Your profile does a very good job of promoting you.  You seem to have a trim figure and an expressive face.

Your work is in an area that does not interest me.  There are a lot of facials with incredible make up and I appreciate that artistis outcome.  There is so many photos in this gendre that it tells me that this is what you are interested in. 

If there are other areas of photography that you are interested in pursuing I would suggest that you get more photos up in these different areas.

I hope this helps in some small way. It is one person's opinion.

You have a portfolio that has a lot of portraits and head and shoulder shots.  Yes there are some in lingerie that show off your curves.  I would suggest that you try to broaden your portfolio into other areas if you are interested in getting work in those areas.

What can I say?  You are obviously a complete professional with a good product to offer.  You are very petite and seemingly very at ease with your body. That would make you a good candidate as far as I am concerned.  While I don't shoot graphic nudes, I find that a model that is comfortable without clothes makes the shoot easier.

You have a gorgeous face.  Not having tattoos is a plus for me. Indicating things such as this and whatever your piercings and handicaps are assures me that I am gettng the model I signed up for.

Most of your port is nudes. You may want to add some in other areas that interest you: Boudoir, swinsutis, outdoors.  (excuse me if you have already done this and Ijust did not study your port well enough)

I would hire you tomorrow if you were a wee bit closer and your rates were agreeable.  As it is I may drive down to Palm Springs and shoot you any way.

Good luck. It looks like you are well on your way to making a go of this.

You have a face that 'could launch a thousand ships' or however that old saying goes.  You are blessed with a beautiful facial structure, lips and hair.  I could see a shoot of just your face taking up an entire session

You also seem to be tall and thin.  This is not a requirement for me but it is the traditional body type for a high fashion model.  You should thank your parents for the good genes they have given you. 

Your port has a wide range of pictures that somewhat describe the breath of work you do.  I would suggest swin suit shots or lingerie if you are comfortabel with that.

I would love to shoot that face of yours.

I looked over your portfolio and you have a good diveristy of pictures that show your work off well.  You seem to have every gendre that you are interested in covered.  All very good.

You have a slim petite figure and an exotic face.  I can see no reason why I would not  hire you for a shoot.

Good work and good luck.

Well you seem quite handsome and you have a portfolio that shows you off well.  I am not a good judge of what makes a good male model as I never have had the opportunity to shoot with one.

You seem to have the classic proportions for a runway model.  Pretty face.  Stellar lips.  Your port shows you off to good advantage.

Your profile starts out by saying how busy you are.  I would pass on you because of that.  I am not sure why you mention it.  What would a photographer be able to do about your busy schedule other than find someone else?  AFTER you get an offer you can always say you are too busy.  I am never certain why models put up all of the reasons they can't shoot or can't shoot a certain type of photo.

You should do very well. I personally wouldn't set up a shoot with you for the reasons I mentioned above.  It does not mean you don't have all the needed attributes.  Just sounds like your life is going in another direction.

Thanks much! I have many other genres of modeling that I'd like to TRY and quite a few fashion edits awaiting post.

Thanks again

Your port shows a beautiful woman who is a cowgirl.  I would suggest, that while you may like being a cowgirl, not every photographer wants to shoot just that.  You may want to expand your horizons a bit.  Unless you are happy with staying with what you have.

You start out by saying what you won't do.  Maybe you should move this down in your profile a bit.  I don't understand why so many models do this.  Are you getting so many requests for nudes that your e-mail can't handle it?  Since you are selling yourself I would start out with the positive, include whatever limitations you want to impose if you must, and then finish with something positive.  A good news sandwich as it is called.

I would not hire you because of your first statement about not doing nudes. It immediately comes to mind "What else won't she do?" Then I move on to the countless models who don't express a negative right up front.  You are certainly entitled to say 'no' to nudes. I can totally respect that.

Good Luck, Cowgirl.  Love that one portrait of yours and that avatar.

Please take all of this in the spirit in which it is offered.

Thank you for you're words! I will deffanatly take them to heart smile I am looking to expand my port to things other than cowgirl, soon. As for the Negative up front...When I first joined I had several other models tell me That I should put it up front...I think I will rethink that advice smile And I thank you for you're time and advice smile

Well New Zealand is a bit away but you never know.

Your have a trim figure and that gorgeous black hair-nice.  An interesting face the seems quite expressive.

Why so many pictures of you and a/your guy?  Are you advertising him and you as a package? I think not.  Better stick with solo shots.  Its grand that you have a significant other but that does nothing to help you get hired.

I like the way that you make your "no nudes" statement in the middle of your profile.  If you have to emphasize it at all, that would be the place to do it.

Good luck and please take this in the spirit in which it is offered.  I bet it is a lot warmer 'down under' than it is here.

I would hire  you in a heartbeat. Your portfolio is well put together with all gendres of pictures in it demonstrating your range.  You have the prototypical figure for doing modeling.  Lovely face.  Beautful skin.  You give off a positive feeling in your portfolio and profile.

You don't need any encouragement from me.  You seem to be doing fine.  Keep at it.

I am not a good judge of the male form.  You do seem exceptional trim and in shape and you have a handsome face.

I can suggest that you add more photos to your port.  Maybe something in a swim suit, something formal and something in active wear.

Good luck.

You are young,  Beautiful. Trim. Voluptuous.  There is not much that you don't have going for you.  Stay in school.  Smart along with all the rest will make you a force to be reckoned with in whatever you pursue. 

I love your fashion portfolio although I am not an expert in this or any area.  I just know what I like.  You have a beautiful face.  You are curvey yet trim.

I would hire you.  You don't need any help from me.  You are well on your way..

Stay in school.  Thank your parents for a good set of genes.

You are so tiny.  I really like that in a model.  You are small but I would not let that discourage you.  You are proportional and that is all the camera sees as long as you are the only thing in the frame.

Very pretty face.

You need more diversity in your portfolio.  Swimsuit, jeans, lingerie if you want to do that.  The pictures you have are exotic and interesting but maybe some more would help.

I would hire you in a minute because you seem to me like a diamond in the rough.

Don't go on and on in your profile about how inexperienced you are.  You get more experience by having more shoots and you get more shoots by saying you are up for anything (but not the things you aren't up for).

You are a very pretty model.  Good luck.

Love your face.  You have very bold features, especially the lips. 

I hate the photos with the cigs in them.  I know it is edgy and all but I don't care for it.

Your port has a lot fo 'dark' photos.  Maybe something more airy and light like some beach shots or some outdoor sundress shots.  Even a smile might help. You are a pretty lady and I am sure there is some happiness in your life-show it.

Why I wouldn't hire you:  You say you are unavailable because of a financial crisis in your life.  I understand that you may be off on other endeavors to pay the rent but the right offer would solve your financial crisis.  Don't put up barriers.  Why preclude getting the offer of a lifetime?

Good luck and I hope it all works out for you.

You look a lot taller than your listed height.  Not a bad thing.  A very intersting and atypical face.  Nice.

Maybe some more shots in your port would help: bikini, lingerie, whatever you feel comfortable with.

I would hire you.  I am not sure where you are as you list several cities but  when you get to Sacramento let's talk.
