I have just added some recent images and would appreciate some feedback please.
Also which of the other images should I keep and which should I get rid of?

I want to try and get my portfolio to look as strong as I can.

Thanks.

hi hun I know your profile is a platinum profile I haven't looked myself but the images I have seen are very good

i'm also a model but i'm on a free profile and have had many views over the years and got a few jobs but you cant expect everyone that looks to comment. with me I don't expect to get comments and im back after nearly 3 yrs from having 2 kids and my pics are old but I haven't changed much

hope your well
don't mind the bit under my name its my new slogan after I lost my baby sister last year and it keeps me going

Life's a bitch so just get on with it

Okay, I'll give it a go, if you'll excuse frank comments.

I think you have an excellent figure and you seem to have improved your muscle tone recently. You're also one of the prettiest models on the net circuit, but some angles definitely work better than others. Given the above, I'd say the bottom four pictures in your profile are the best, especially in terms of being likely to gain you bookings. I also like the one where you're sitting on the rocks and the one that's nearly a silhouette, but I'm less keen on the others, especially the rear view in the archway, which I don't think does you justice. I can see that a lot of work has gone into your headline shot, the colours are lovely and it really brings out your eyes, but maybe something more natural? Remember that photographers are booking you, not the other people you've shot with!

I hope that's helpful.

Hi Electria,

I love your headline shot, which brings out your delicacy and would certainly encourage me to book you. The next is useful too and the third might be okay if it wasn't so tiny. I quite like the pregnancy shot, but the last two are much more homely and out of keeping with the first four. I actually like that, as it gives your port a friendly feel, but I don't think the Christmas tree selfie is particularly flattering.

I see you're in Oxford, so if you ever what to shoot on a punt, let me know. You have the perfect look for drifting down the Cherwell.

Peter

ps sorry about your sister. I lost my brother a few years ago and can sympathise.

One of the problems is the title.

"If you cant be nice, don't say anything" which suggests you want some smoke blowing. If you want a critique you really need to accept the bad with the good.

Still. I am saying mainly nice things so don't panic

Main image, striking, you are an attractive girl, however the image has been photoshopped to hell and back and that is a real shame.

Other images suggest you have a nice figure, a very nice figure actually. You look comfortable infront of the camera, and you have a really pretty face.

I would strongly suggest getting your images resized to a proper web viewing ratio, they are HUGE. They take ages to open because of this and people don't like waiting, especially paying customers.

White background image, boring, bin it.

Image with just your legs, (and bruises on your leg) Not worth having there at all,

Arse shot in the doorway, isn't that flattering, I would remove it.

Lying down image, 4th up from bottom right hand side, shows your figure and your beauty, lovely, get it resized!

Would I pay to shoot you? Sorry, I can't pay anyone unfortunately, would I TF with you, certainly.

I think you have quite a lot going for you, I think you are capable of a lot better though

Hope some of that was useful,

Rob

Thanks Rob , very helpful . I put that title because the last time I asked for constructive critisism some people were just downright rude to me and not at all constructive ! One person even said I need to lose weight !! Haha I weigh 7 stone , I lose anymore and I will disappear , it upset me abit hence the title now .

Nice portfolio - great pics: I've added a couple of comments - pity you're so far away or I would certainly try and book a session with you

Hi Stacey
I have put a couple of comments up
Some nice images,
I would change the main photo to another one
But that is just my personal thought and after all it's yours that really count
