Hello!
I am thinking about new Phototest. And before I invest my money,
I would be happy for advice from somebody experienced what kind of modelling should I concentrate on.

Thanks a lot! :-)

So you're saying models who pose nude are 'cheap' - I think you might need to reword that statement rather quickly.

I considered this as an insult to all models who do nude work but having looked at your portfolio and seen some nude images in it, I think that you'll need to reword this and translate into English correctly.

You should model "fine art" nudes.

You are gorgeous and I would hire you and paint you anytime!

I think you would do very well in modeling "fine art nude"!

You don't have the right look for editorial or commercial fashion, but from the couple of nude images in your portfolio you could do pretty well as an independent nude model.

Some of my best friends are nude models and the idea that taking one's clothes off for the camera equates in any way with 'cheapness' or 'low morals' is both highly insulting and completely untrue.

Maybe the OP should ask some of these models whether posing nude makes them 'cheap'?

I am surprised you said that considering you have several good nudes in your port, you don't look cheap to me.

I agree, from your port it seems nudes are your strong point.

It was a reaction to the first comment. Stupid reaction. I am sorry for my stupid sentence.Of course, being nude model doesn´t mean you are cheap. I was just a bit upset to being asked for nudes, nudes, nudes, so that is ME who feels cheap-but that´s only and my problem
Thanks for comments.

Maybe ask yourself ... what style of shoot you enjoyed the most ?

At 5'9", 114 pounds, and wonderfully expressive, I see no reason why you shouldn't pursue fashion assignments.

You may need to travel for the best opportunities, but you are well suited for it.

The "look" that Americans may consider a fashion look is completely irrelevant in the European market, so don't take such opinions too seriously.

An additional consideration is that unlike the prudish US, in the European maket, it is entirely acceptable to do sophisticated nudes as well as quality fashion assignments, just look at the top fashion magazines  and the stylish nudes they publish.

One style doesn't necessarily limit other styles.

Pursue what most interests you, the work from which you derride the most enjoyment, in short, follow your heart.

Best of luck to you.
