I just went through and cleaned up my port. Does anyone have any helpful advice?

Great physique.  (Yeah, I'm freakin' jealous.) 

The couple of things that stand out to me are your connection with the camera and your expressions.  There is a connection, but it seems tenuous.  Maybe because I'm a guy, but I just don't feel your connection in all of them as strong as in others. 

Part of that may be due to you having almost the same expression in many of the shots.  The one where you are laughing is great.  Work on getting more of that natural comfort and confidence coming through consistently.

The shot coming out of the water looks like something out of a CK ad.  Fantastic shot and perfect pose on that one.

The best images are not always the best avatars.  Avatars is why we click on profiles.  So....consider this photo as an avatar. 


You should take  some shots in formalness....like a tuxedo or trendy nerd cool

Thanks! Yeah, formal or trendy is definitely my next adventure.
I've found that my connection to the camera has a lot to do with my connection to the photog, so that's something I'm also working on.

I really appreciate the help, y'all. Keep it coming!

well all your photos look very amateurish and dont serve you all that well.  You need some good commercial print shots- you doing stuff and being very approachable/friendly.  You should bite the bullet spend a few hundred dollars and immediately be competitive in the non MM arena.  Nice body shots of you in  yoga poses and with a woman would be a good place to start.

Good luck
