Your strong clauses of no nude and escort accompaniment bring down your marketability somewhat. I like your expressions though.

I would pay you $50/hr

Thank you, that is pretty in line with what I was thinking.

A no nudity clause brings your marketability significantly. I would probably pay you $30/hr.

You may want to weed out a couple of pictures that are not too well executed...Maybe this one in my mind http://www.modelmayhem.com/portfolio/pic/42545041

I would pay you $35/hr.

I think I have been here before and I'll play again if you'd like. But mostly I'm coming here to commend you for keeping this up for so long. I am impressed!

OUCH. But my friends don't do nudes and get payed way more than that. Not to mention my body is better than these girls, tiny waist, abs, big boobs, bubble butt, very toned legs... and a pretty face? I follow some famous models with my exact body-face that are rolling in money. You hurt me my feelings LOL.  Definetly not doing nudes, my friends are doing great and they model bandage dresses-bikini-and do TV appearances. Should I be focusing on leaving Model Mayhem and looking for an agency? That rate is just me when the photographer doesn't even need to use photoshop.

I am sorry it hurt your feelings. But this is strictly my opinion only and you should be able to charge what you think best. But lets face it - you have a half baked port with only 8 and barely any picture of note. no nudity clause brings your marketabiity down as well.

If that is also a factor I can add more images easily. Thank you for input.

Awesome avatar pic. But a Bust: 1" Waist: 39"Hips: 0" brings your marketability to zero. I say you build a proper port working on TFCD

Great avatar. And great sense of beauty - but I would suggest some improvements on your light and shadows. How about honing that skill by working a little more on TFCD.

As you will probably agree, your port needs enhancement to be marketable. But there is the obvious potential to be a print model. Your best bet would be get a goo photographer to work on TF while you build your port.

I have gone all other reviews on MM pics only and your MM port needs some help. I like your camera angles though.

For now, TFCD.

Ryan,
You are an accomplished artist - but your port is not. Going strictly by your MM port - I would have to ask to work on TFCD to build a diverse one to be marketable.

And I am interested in working with you. Lets talk offline on that. Send me a message if you are keen as well.


You have an excellent curvy body  but your port does not accentuate that. How about $50/hr?

your avatar is breathtaking. Very well captured. But there are a few in your port that look - at best, amateurish! I would weed them out and make a killer port on TFCD

Let me start by saying that you are very good. I have a couple of suggestions please - with a pedigree like yours - are you over dependent on post production edits? Also shadows may need to be re-evaluated.

If you were in DC area - I would pay you $75/hr.

This is my problem, you have some great pictures but you also have a few they rank amateurish. You need to weed them out. And there are a lot great ones in your credited section. You should be able to know which ones are good or bad.

Until then - I will pay you only about $40/hr.
