New to this, I've modeled before, but just recently started modeling again. Could really use some pointers and critique!

I feel your port has a great start and you have a wonderful look.  I feel that you have pulled off every look in your portfolio. Just keep working on pushing yourself to try to do something different every time.

You're certainly very photogenic. You have a natural beauty. I would say work on your facial expressions though and maybe get a few good headshots done. The composition in some of your photos could be better. I think you'll do well once you get a bit more experience.

You're very beautiful and photogenic, but to me the one negative that sticks out in your portfolio is:

High belts and high waistlines make the model look bottom-heavy.

You may get a variety of opinions on this, but I despise that look.

Very nice start.

One big recommendation: Change your avatar. I see the horse before I see you, especially in the forums. You want people to be able to see you!

This one might work:

Miss Maam'

You asked, so here goes.

PROS, you're probably pretty.
CONS: you're too far away from the camera for me to figure out what you are selling.

What I mean is that you're supposed to be modeling SOMETHING.  And from each shot, it's so confugled, that I cannot know what that is.  You need better "production" photographers.  What you have here is someone who took "nice photos".   Not model photos.

You seem to be attempting FASHION.  And in that case your PHOTOGRAPHER is supposed to be focusing on the #1 outfit or #2 your expression in relation to that outfit or #3 a story along with the expression and the outfit.

Use that filter to go through your own photos, and you will greatly improve in minutes.

weakest for no facial expression:

Ditto what others said about being too far away.  Your avatar is cute when viewed full size but it's too small as an avatar.

This is your best IMHO:

Nice series...good fashion expressions, great styling, makeup, etc.  A bit too predictable given you ethnicity, but look at it as the whole package you should be aiming for...

But I'm not modeling fashion at all. None of the photographer's intents were fashion. So what should I use to filter my images in that case? They are all just editorial/lifestyle type shoots. Some are portraits for their portrait businesses.

I agree with the above comment on current avatar.  It's just too dark to even make out your face.  I'd pass over it in a Browse/Search mode just for that fact alone.

I also would crop in closer to you.  Way to much extra stuff going on and detracts away from you.  More head shots would help, and better lighting too.
