I'd love to hear a german opinion on my work!

The lighting, make-up and angle are unflattering for the model:

Weird lighting and composition, also I don't understand it:

The rest of your work is pretty nice.

Learn to do make-up, buy a wardrobe, work with better photographers.

Get rid of the pictures that show you with the longer hair you don't have anymore.

Your port is good. Going in a commercial direction sounds like a good plan to me.

So I will only comment on what I don't likeThe yellowish tones here I don't like, also I don't think the expression in the second one is very flattering for you:

Thank you so much for your time!  Hopefully I will have some better smiling pics soon!  Appreciate the critique!

Would love to know what you think of my port and also let me know what you think I should do more of.

Your port doesn't seem very consistent to me, there are glorified snapshots next to some really nice work.

I'll tell you what I don't like about this as an example:
http://photos.modelmayhem.com/photos/120117/12/4f15e0bcd9c3a_m.jpg
The orange (fake?) tan of the skin clashes horribly with the pink shirt, the lighting is flat, the make-up is a crime, the expression and pose... don't make much sense and don't flatter the model.

Do more of these, the mood, use of light and tones are lovely:

Does my port's content seem too scattered to you  .  .  .  or, does it show that I shoot a wide array of styles  .  .  .  and, which attracts you to shoot with a photographer, variety, or a single stream of images based on one style  .  .  .  TY for your time  .  .  .

Isn't that basically a question of concept as well as working with the right type of model and stylists who can pull clothing for fashion/editorial? You seem to know what you are doing.

Thanks, it doesn't feel like I know, but I appreciate that it seems that way

How come your nick is Cristal and in your bio it says Crystal?

Strenghts: physically, the face, especially the eyes and lips, and the boobs. You're sexy and your expressions are good.

You seem to know what you are doing. Maybe get more full body shots of you standing?

The last picture is the worst in your port, I'd delete it.

Thank you for your feedback. I go by crystal but when signing up for this account my original name was taken. I'll remedy that. Thank you

It's certainly not too scattered, it looks fine to me.

As long as the quality of images in a portfolio is consistent, I don't mind either way, but the advantage of working with a photographer with a distinctive style is having a better idea beforehand of how the pictures might turn out.

Thanks for the look, and the input  .  .  .  I try not to let the sample images get too far afield, but I also don't want to limit the models that may be interested in shooting with me  .  .  .  having a few fashion, a few urban, a few beach, and a few nudes seems to be a pretty good balance, but it's always good to hear what others are seeing in the presentation as well  .  .  .

Overall it's pretty nice.

I don't understand this - the background, the make-up and the thing on her head don't make any sense to me combined:

http://photos.modelmayhem.com/photos/121017/19/507f6f17a76f9_m.jpg

While this isn't terrible, I find the desaturation of the model a bit tacky and not exactly fitting:

It's tasteful.

But why are so many images out of focus and/or have a black frame?

I'd delete 8, 9 and 13.

Your port has nice work in it but is a little repetitive and could be thinned out.

This I just find unflattering:

Nice work, tasteful. You pick good models to work with.

These are not as strong as the rest of your work imo:

I'm pretty sure I've critiqued you before. Let's see...

The make-up here is a crime, especially the incredibly flaky lips (!!), the skin and eyes look awful to me, too, though. The model looks bored and the wardrobe and hair are horrid as well. In fact I do not find any redeeming qualities in this image:
http://photos.modelmayhem.com/photos/120921/04/505c55bfd280e_m.jpg
This image alone would discourage me from working with someone.

Is this out of focus? I understand neither the wardrobe nor the concept:
http://photos.modelmayhem.com/photos/130527/07/51a36c3983ecf_m.jpg

I don't like the shadow. The angle makes the model look like a midget:
http://photos.modelmayhem.com/photos/101008/08/4caf3e59ed45b_m.jpg

I find the pendant around the model's neck distracting from the already busy pattern of the dress. The model's expression is somehow off, too:
http://photos.modelmayhem.com/photos/120608/22/4fd2db57725f3_m.jpg

Your work would benefit from working with a stylist.

Have you asked stylists if they want to work with you?

Can't say yet if and when, but I'd like to.

Starting up again after finishing a very busy degree year - Some guidance on what to work on in preparation and during the shoot, so that I can progress as much as possible from my current images would be lovely.

Learn more about make-up. I recommend YouTube tutorials.

Open your mouth slightly when posing. Makes the lips look fuller and relaxes the jaw.

Incorporating dance, maybe doing an all dance shoot could give your port an edge.

Your port needs good full body shot of you standing.
