I'm relatively new to this site, but I'm not sure whether I have something wrong with my profile or if models just don't reply... As I've sent out various comments and mails etc but have never had a reply back. I'm starting to wonder if my profile can be seen....
Or perhaps - I've been too honest with what I've said.
Can anyone out there just acknowledge this plea.... at least?
Many models are skeptical about working with someone that only has self portrait nudes.
I would suggest being clear that you don't intend to model with your prospectives, as that might be what they believe you're attempting.
As a llama I totally agree that your profile is kinda creepy.
"I'm happy to shoot anything from fashion to artistic nude." But yet everything in your portfolio is implied nudes, of you no less. (Or at least I'm assuming it's of you) Which if it is of you is kinda creepy all together. As a llama I only wanted to envision one of my photographers naked, I ended up dating him, it didn't go well and now we never talk. My advice, if they are of you, take them down and start over with someone else.
Selecting every genre of photography doesn't help either. Most llamas who do TFP or TF work have come to realize what that usually means is you don't have nearly enough experience to know what you're good at and therefore will select everything so that you will always pop up in search results. It also usually means that we will contact you for one thing and end up doing something different (i.e. contact you for fashion and end up doing implied nudes as your portfolio suggests you do).
Lastly your text in your profile. "both our folios" sounds very unprofessional. It's not that hard to add port in front of folios when typing. If you don't sound like your serious, I'm not going to take you seriously. All this combined honestly makes you look like another guy with a camera looking for some good pictures to put around your house, or in your bedroom, or maybe even to blackmail me with later.... For all I know you may be an awesome photographer. These are just my suggestions from what I've seen in the past. Hopefully it helps you.
I can't critique you here. So I will say this. Put yourself in a models shoes. Look at your portfolio. What do you have to offer that can help them? Why would a model not respond to someone with a bunch of implied nude pictures of themselves?
If you feel you can offer a model something, shoot in that style.
