Hey Peeps, 

Well after 4 hours i have finally organised my port into different photographer/date sections.... just had a random fit i think!

In your view do you think its better to see a modelling port in genre categories?

Sorry to be a party-pooper, but that layout means that you have several instances of very, very similar pics sitting right next to each other.

I'm pretty sure the category thing is irrelevant after the categories section is filled in profile notes. After that, it's an interpretation game and everyone's varies anyway. You've a decent range of pics from the cursory glance I made, but I found the categorisation a bit tiring and gave up reading.

By photographer seems very strange, have to say I've never seen it before. POssibly because it means you have mor photos than needed in each section, making them quite overloaded and repetative. Take the "rope" shoot, 3 of them seem to be almost identical.

Yeah i understand what you are saying. I cant make my mind up which one i like the best! I just thought showing as many photos as possible would be better than just showing "one" picture out of the full set. I do always struggle picking pictures and the photographer always seems to like the one i dont like. Anyways

Thank you

We all see the same picture in a different way, nearly every model that I have worked with has said the same

Hope to shoot with you this summer

Understood. I'm the same - I'm hopeless when it comes to deciding on just one pic from a particular sequence. (Earlier today I uploaded six pics from the same shoot, so I don't exactly practice what I preach!)

However, when I look at a model's portfolio, if I see a lot of 'same shoot' pics I find myself thinking "she can't have done many shoots, otherwise she wouldn't need to pad her portfolio with several lots of pics that are very, very similar". (That's not meant to be rude. Honest!)

If there is a photographer you know fairly well and whose judgement you trust, why not ask them to select just one pic from each set. If you're using your folio to try to get you work, it's more important that it should appeal to photoraphers than it does to you or other models. (Again, I hope that doesn't sound rude - it's not meant to be!)
