Well you are pretty enough, young enough and have a good figure.  Your port does not have enough photos in it.  I suggest you find a photographer that is close to you that is willing to work with you in order to get a more substantial portfolio.  There are lots of photographers that may be willing to do it for nothing in order to strengten their own ports and to give a young model a leg up.  Make certain you take photos of each type of modelign that you would like to do.

I would hire you.  Just because I think you have  a shot and I like to help where I can.

I like the completeness of your profile.  You say what you are interested in doing without saying what you won't do.  Good.

You have a very broad portfolio that exhibits all of the things that you say you are interested in doing.  Overall I can't say that any one photo grabs me other than the one with the tape bikini.  Your photos are darker and more black and white and I gravitate to more bold colors.

I would hire you.  You have a great figure and an openess to new ideas that have not occurred to me.  I think you will do well.

Well you are young and pretty and have great figure.  Your portfolio has a collection of phots that show you off to good advantage in any number of settings.  You have your little black dress shot, head shot, bikini shot and others that show the range of photos you are interested in doing.  I didn't see nor did you mention any tattoos which I find a plus. 

I would hire you because you show off yourself nicely without skewing your port to one genre or another.  Even the shot with the guy shows off some flexibility. You should do well.  Your port is not holding you back.  Now go out there and solicit comments and lists and shamelessly promote yourself.

Wll you are tall and pretty. The only thing that out does your briliant smile are those captivating eyes.  You certainly have all of the attributes to make it in the modeling world.

Your port is good but probably could be expanded; Bikini or swimsuit, lingerie,implied  only if you are comfortable with all of tha.  There is one picture of you with a camera that looks a bit washed out yet everyone seems to comment on it favorably.

I would hire you because you have all of the attributes of a runway mode.  There are a lot of shots I would like to take of you.  Good luck and I am sure you will do well with gettting some paying gigs. If I were you I would only do TF if the phtoographer is spectacular and can get you in a magazine or ad.

Your port has very few photos and most of them are head shots that show off your lip jewlery.  My take away fromt he entire thing is that you want to me a lip wear model.  You should have some shots done without the rings unless this is the only thing that you are interested in doing.

You mention your weight.  Don't do it.  Take a full body shot and let the photographer decide.  One man's chubb is another man's voluptuos model.

You seem agreeable to anything at any price (well except nudity)  If that is the case then I wouldn't hire you.  I may do some TF with you.  I am not going to put any higher price on you than you do on yourself.

So get some more photos done.  Take out the weight comments and the lip rings. Get some photos in any form you are willing to do: swimwear, implied whatever.  If you want to go the goth, edgy route then get some tats and some more piercings.  I personally prefer a clean canvas but I am sure there are those who like the well decorated body.

Well you are young and adventurous and handsome and trim.  Your port shows you off in several action pictures and  you are a self described man of action. SInce I am not interested in shooting the male form I would not hire you.

Oddly, all of your friends are female models. I doubt that they are interested in paying you to take your picture so you might want to cozy up to someone who will advance your modeling career if you are serious about it.  If you are using MM as a place to troll for women I would say you are doing fine.

You only have a few pictures in your port and they are all of the same gendre.  If this is where you intend to specialize, great.  If not, you should add some in a little black dress, bathing suit, jeans etc in order to cast a wider net for paying gigs.  Since you are quite lovely you should not box yourself in.  While you may be Gothic by nature or choice, that is not necessarily the only thing you could get paid to do.

You are open and honest about your piercings and tats and that is good.  I would not hire you because I am more into playboy style implieds. I would shoot you to expand your port because I think you are quite lovely.

You are pretty enough and seem to have a good figure.  Your profile is pretty much empty.  Your port needs to have some photos of you in other attire.  You need to add some shots and some information if you are ever going to get noticed.  Find a photographer that will shoot you for TF and go from there.

Well you are very specific and honest about what you want to do.  That always helps.  You have picked a gendre that I have no interest in but I am sure others do.  I am not sure that boxing yourself into one thing is the way to go at this point.  I would leave the avenues open to whatever a Photographer wants to do.  Your hair and tats certainly drive things one way but even that can be worked around if your attitude is a willing one.

I suggest that you try something outside of the 'alternative' vein and see if that works for you .  You may surprise yourself.

Good luck in any case.

Well you have the prettiest face.  Classic what we call girl-next-door looks.  Not next to any place I ever lived but you get the point.  You have very very nice facial features.

Yet in a lot of your portfolio you have either your face partly covered or decorated with something or other. I am not sure why you would want to alter your best feature.

A lot of your photos are black and white or lack color.  The ones that are in color show off your beautiful eyes and those red lips. I am not certain why you chose so many b and w photos.  They don't do you justice nor do they represent the product you are selling  very well.

I did not study your stats but you look very slender which is good.  You did not seem to put up any barriers that would preclude me from hiring you. More variety in the areas you want to work in would help.  Lose some of the masked photos and get into some jeans or a swimsuit of little black dress.

Actually I would be delighted to pay you for the privilege of a shoot.  Don't sell yourself short as you seem to have all of the attributes to get some paying gigs.  Now go out there and market yourself a little better.

Please take these words as words of encouragement.

Your profile lays out what you have to offer and what your requirements are.  I like that.  I also like that you leave the door open for implied nudes if it feels right.  Pretty straight to the point.  Good.

Your portfolio has a lot of different types of photos showing how versatile you are.  There are couple of portraits that are captivating. A couple of lingerie that makes me want to go back and look again.

You don't need any advice from me.  You seem to have it all together. Go get um.  I would shoot you...well quite honestly for your face.  I am not sure there is any explaining that other than it is a bit of a different look that I like a lot.
I would hire you.

Oh yeah.  I love your list titled; "reasons to get off my butt and get to the gym"  When you find the gym with those ladies in it let me know.

Good luck to you and have a prosperous and healthy new year.

Well I am not a good judge of the male form.  You are tall, handsome and trim.  I suspect that will work well for you.

Your port has a lof good shots that show off your handsome face and the vareity of poses you are interested in.  If I were interested in hiring a male model there is enough in your port to help me make the decision.

Your friends all seem to be male models or mostly so.  Branch out to the photographers you want to work with.  The other models are you competition and while there is no reason you can't be freinds with them I don't think they will further your career.

Good luck.  Stay healthy and happy.

You are a pretty girl with a nice figure and good proportions.  Your portfolio has a good vareity of photos in different outfits from jeans to bathing suits to dresses.

Now here is the rub.  You profile and your portfolio both seem to me like they have been put together by a disinterested third party.  I can't put my finger on it but I think you are better than what your port shows.

So maybe you should try some hands on editing of your port.   Your profile is okay but I have never seen one done in the third person before.  Inject a little of your personality into it.

Please take this in the spirit in is being offered.

You have a pretty face.  You have lots of head shots in your port which is good.  Otherwise a lot of your shots are in dark clothes which does not show off your dark skin as well as it might.  Think about more color in your shots.

You outline the things you won't do-nudes.  Okay.  But are you really getting so overwhelmed with requests for nudes that you have to make this disclaimer?  And you say right up front you are going to bring an escort.  No legitimate photog will disallow this so why even mention it.  You have put up some barriers that may preclude you from getting the offer to begin with.

I encourage you to stay safe and certainly don't do any kind of shots you don't want to.  Please have someone check your spelling and grammar in your profile.  I know that in this day of texting and e mail that all sorts of typos are allowed.  But this is your ad to sell yourself so make ti as good as you possibly can.

Good luck and all the best to you.

Thankyou very much for your honest opinion. I do have an alternative looks but I am willing to do a variety of shoots. What would you suggest I try doing? Then I shall list it in my profile and hope for the best. X

Try going more mainstream.  You have a lovely face.  Let us see it without the jewelry.  A head shot with a non teal wig might give us an idea of what we could do with you.  And mayebe some shirts and jeans that cover up your tats.  But don't make yourself unhappy doing it.  You have decided on a look and gone a good ways down that path.  If covering up your body art makes you unhappy then don't do it.  Life is too short.

Wow.  I had a look at your port and it is excellent in many respects.  You have a broad range of photos showing you off very well.  You seem to be one of those rare ones that are comfortable shooting tasteful nudes.  It shows in the photo.

You have a lovely face and figure. Your profile describes the things you will do without going on about what you want do.  I think you will do well. I would hire you today if you were closer.

Reading your profile you seem like you have it together and have a plan to get where you are going.

You have a lot of good shots in your portfolio.  You have a slender figure.  You look more mature than 16 yo.  Your face is exotic.  All of these are good things.

I like this photo a lot

You should do well.  Would I hire you.  I wouldn't. Too young and too far away are the obivous reasons for that.  But you will do well and I wish you all of the best.

Well your profile is a little thin.  I like brevity but perhaps a bit more about you would be helpful.

Your port has some nice photos in it in a variety of styles.  Good.  Here too you may want to expand to some other shots to give a sense of your versatility

You have a Rubenesque figure and an interesting/exotic face.  Your lips are full and the dark your dusky skin and dark hair are attractive.  You have a fairly complete protfolio that shows you off well in and number of costumes and genres.

Love the way you handle the escort issue also.

I would hire you.


Good luck.
