Brand new model (i literally started shooting less than a month ago! all the pictures in my portfolio are recent), very limited portfolio, but i am highly motivated.
Be harsh if you will, as long as it is constructive! I don't have mind-blowing shots right now but I am attending two more shoots this weekend. Hopefully they will add to the beautiful and professional portfolio I am hoping to put together.
Please and thank you

Actually yes , but define what your goals are before asking.

When I go to agency casting everyone wants the same question answered. All at t=different levels, all with different personal goals.

Here on MM often the goal is to create art.
Decide your goals, pursue that line, post new pictures, and you'll be much further ahead.

Alright, that's actually really good advice. I guess it is a lot better to have somewhat of a specific goal when it comes to the type of modeling I want to pursue rather than generalities. What will set models apart is their ability to work with photographers to create unique and captivating shots. I would say I have an eye for beauty and I love all forms of art, so I am willing to do what it takes to collaborate and set myself apart from others ! I just need a bigger wardrobe...i really am interested in costume/extravagant attire though I have none...haha. Thank you!

I think yes you have potential, but only if you know how to pick the good photographers from the mundane, one or two of your photos have lighting issues, you will need to learn about good lighting, to flatter you.. Your first photo clearly lacked a reflector under your chin, you have all that beautiful lighting on one side makes your face fall into shadow. you should have asked the photographer to shoot you at a different angle, to get some of that sun on your face.

Your woodland log photo is far too dark, it looked like the wrong time of day to get all that sunshine on you.

I would definitely try speaking to someone about practising lighting techniques

It's a lot easier to be a successful male model than a successful female model because there is less competition. You even seem to fit the height criteria for  male fashion models. My advice is to just make sure the photographers you choose are good ones. Go for it.

put your energy into a more worth while goal.  Take some acting classes if you want to be in front of the camera.

Good luck Kade in what ever you do
