I'm always looking for honest feedback on my port, which has been really hard. Any and all would be appreciated. smile

Not quite sure what that means...

But here's my 2 cents worth. Seven shots of you in the same outfit in the alley...
About 5 shots too many. Quality beats quantity.

BTW, Welcome to Mayhem.

Welcome to Model Mayhem!

A quick note on posing: whatever is closest to the camera will appear the largest.

^Because avatars are smaller than the real thing, at a quick glance I thought this was a maternity pic. I'm NOT saying you're fat, I'm saying the pose and crop don't flatter your natural shape, especially at a distance. This one would be better:

Also, when choosing photographers, pick ones who know how to flatter a model with light. Most of your images are underexposed. Better lighting will improve your portfolio by a big step.

Good luck!
