I’m curious to know if you would hire me base on my portfolio, I’m open to your critique and new ideas.
Thanks MM

No because right now I'm only paying photographers who I can get marketable commercial/lifestyle images from.

This is close (I like the location), but the model's pose is too dramatic for what I'm looking for.

This is what I'd pay a photographer for:

Danel as a make-up artist my book needs quality high end clean beauty that is masterfully illuminated and elegantly rendered in post...
not seeing this in your book yet...

From your BIO

My focus is fashion...

nope, not seeing fashion yet either...
here's a hint... if both elbows of a talent rise above her shoulders, it isn't fashion it is glamour... this has nothing to do with the talent's ensemble but rather the latent visual statement...

glamour exploits a women's femininity while fashion honors it...
once you get your head around this complexity the sooner you'll be able to shoot fashion effectively...

all the best on your journey...

I am a photographer so I don't hire others.

I can say your nudes are very sweet. You might get hired for boudoir, althouh you need to package it expressly for that.

Your model stuff agencies won't like. People on MM want everything for TF, so there are few models paying photographers anyway. Yet if you can do FA nudes and make a gallery show you're well suited for that.

I think that is good solid advice.

True, I like some photos so maybe I'd offer a TF but not pay. If I was going to pay, it'd have to be someone way outside my league lol
