Eastbourne, England, United Kingdom
honestly i cant really tell what you look like, you need one pic that shows you straight on, close up, no make up
1 full body (head to toe) shot preferably in swimwear or lingerie
and arelaxed smiling pic
you dont need more than that if you have never modelled before, so wipe all these pics and start again
I would remove the quote about payment, no one is going to pay you yet.
also you 'researched' modelling?, no one is a learned model until you have stood in front of a camera and you have been barked at by a photographer until you get it right, every...single.. time and then learn to direct themselves.
I think the reason you've gotten primarily negative comments so far is that the pictures in your portfolio suck. You don't, but the pictures do.
As someone above suggested, you pretty much need to start over with your portfolio.
You'll never be a runway or fashion model because of your height. But there are things you can do.
You probably shouldn't plan on making a living at it. If you want to model for fun or for the occasional bit of extra spending money, go after it.
The first thing you need to do is get better images in your portfolio and lose all the ones you currently have except, perhaps, the first one showing you in the black top with your red hair (I'm a sucker for redheads). There must be a gazillion young photographers in the New York/Philadelphia area who are looking to trade. Shoot with as many as you can, and be very, very selective about the images you put in your portfolio.
It won't happen overnight, but if you work at it you can build a portfolio that will attract more and better photographers. And from there, who knows?
