While setting up my portfolio for approval, I mostly grabbed shots from a recent group shoot. The shots there are fairly representative of what we would like to do more of.  I would appreciate feedback on not only the portfolio as a while, but on any individual images you feel like critiquing.

These shots were done for our portfolio and the models'.

Thanks!

Good lighting skills and some interesting framing ideas and post production.

This brings a lot of good things together, a surreal visual narrative and a lot of detail. Perhaps the styling is a bit dated and busy and his hand could have fitted into the frame. Your logo is a pain too as it obscures the fact that the chair is on bricks.




Again with the logo. Nobody will steal the photo. But a lot of people would probably like to see it if they are to work with you. If I thought I'd get photos back like this from you as a model, with my face obscured, why would I give you my time?



I like this even though there's nothing going in it. But the expressions are reasonably intense.

Here I'm starting to get bored and a bit nauseated by the texture effect you've vignetted all around the image. I think the composition is what's lacking, not the absence of texture.

Not enough going on here to justify the closeup in my opinion.

This has a beautiful combination of background and foreground lighting. Just shoot everyone in that spot and you'll be fine.

Nice light in this one too. You could do so much more - find architecture or nature as a setting.
