Hi Beckii. I just took a look at your portfolio, and yes, it is rather limited and mostly B&W. That still would not prevent me from contacting you for a shoot. I do notice you have some major puffiness under your eyes. that is a very simple retouch in Photoshop, and you should find someone to fix that. When I shoot a model FTP, I feel strongly that as I am trading my skills as a photographer for her appearance and talent as a model, I need to give her the very best pictures I can give her. To that end, I spend many hours editing her pics: i shoot enough to discard a third or more, and focus on the best pics of the shoot; then I run those pics through Photoshop. I retouch areas like circles beneath the eyes, blemishes on the face, skin issues, etc; these are all very simple fixes in the latest editions of Photoshop or Lightroom. I also give the model several versions of each print: I play with tome, texture and color and save several with various effects.
When you say you want to be an "alternative model," I assume you mean tats, piercings, hair styles. I work with models in that realm a lot. The most important trait you bring to a shoot, beyond tats, piercings, or style (all of which I appreciate) is the ability to model; to know how you look best, and to give energy at each shoot. Just a little experience I can share with you.
I look forward to seeing pics from the new shoot.
