I'm in!

Most of what I see are snapshots. Photography is more, its coming up with a concept, visualizing the lighting, planning the shoot and creating an image. You've got some work to do before you get there. Books, books, books, then magazines. Take a magazine that you love the photography in, pick a couple of shots with simple setups and "read" the lighting. Where is the light coming from, is it hard or soft, is there light from another direction as well, is it natural light or studio lighting? So many questions to answer but they are questions you have to be able to answer to be able to create photographs.

I think you have good potential, the shot on the mountain proves that. You have not worked with good enough photographers yet that would let your potential really shine. It often takes paying a really good photographer to get some great shots for your port. Do a browse of photographers in your area and PM the best of them to see if they're interested in working with you. The really good ones don't have time to browse for models, they have models knocking on their doors!:-)

Thanks for the advice! I'll get to it x)

Good technical photos in your port, now it's time to work in some feeling. Try including some empty space... Capturing a face in a picture is one thing, telling  a story is something else.

I comment on very few male models ports, but I wasn't creeped out by your avatar so I took a look. You have a good frame and show clothes well. You have a well cut physique and should do well in mainstream fashion work if you work hard enough at networking in a big enough market.

I have several upcoming shoots to give my port more depth, which I know I lack. Aside from that, I am pursuing agency representation. Will I, in your opinion, amount to much in this business?

Thank you for your time and honest opinion

You have a good look, but at 5'11" are just a tad short, the fashionistas prefer 6'1"-6'5"... But for print work you could do well especially in a large market like DFW.

Thank you for your quick response. I've heard I'm a tad short for some things, runway specifically, which doesn't hurt my feelings too much honestly. What other ways does it limit me, typically, being under 6 feet?

Really only in high end runway where camera angle and editing don't come in to play.

Hmm, not sure what to say, there's nicely shot pics in your port but I don't see any direction it's headed in. We need to see more!:-)

Nothing really jumps out at me, it's all rather predictable, try getting away from the center of the frame and using some empty space.

Ahh, that depends on what your modeling goal is. If it's Paris and Milan runway shows, you're kidding yourself. If it's lifestyle, or as stated in your port cosplay you could do well. You have a lovely face, great hair, good build... There's potential there!:-)

There's some white balance issues in your port, skin tones on some shots seem off. If you've been shooting for a year or so, there's potential. If you've been shooting five years or more, you may be kidding yourself.

You REALY DON'T want to know what I think of your "work" and I couldn't type it here without being brigged, probably permanently out of here, so I'll just say, have a good life.
