I may get some horrible comments but ill try anyway

I was wondering if you guys could take a look at my portfolio and tell me if im doing anything wrong, i pose different in every photo i try looking different but i must be doing something wrong for some of the togs i work with not to even bother with my images i work hard and spend my time and effort on these shoots but they sometimes feel like a waste of my time.

If they think im horrible they shouldnt work with me in the first place, is it because i am a size 12 and not a size zero is that what it is? I dont have the perfect skinny body, i have curves and a bit of baby weight like all women get but i get the feeling some photographers think that a bigger model is disgusting when its not, i just dont know whats going wrong or where im going wrong

Does anyone else feel like there is something wrong with them when a photographer doesnt use your photos? Is there anything wrong with how i look? Do i need to be anorexic to get somewhere?

Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

But... I just clicked on the "view other" button and you ARE on photographers profiles. 5 of them in fact. That's more than me.

Actually love the A7X bat skull tat! I wouldn't say size 12 is big at all, you've got a good figure - maybe its just that your working with the wrong photographers????

They are kinda old now though when i was more 'fit' but now since i have had a baby it seems nobody really wants to add my photos which makes me feel awful about myself i cant help the baby weight can i? I know some people might think im being daft and whinging but it happens a lot and ive never said anything till now i just wanted to know whats going wrong.

I know sometimes things like this can seem very personal but it's not necessarily a reflection on you. A lot of photographers don't update their online portfolios very often (I've worked with quite a few photographers who don't). Or it may just be that they haven't got round to it yet.

I shouldn't think it's a deliberate slight at all. I don't tend to add new photos as soon as I get them. Occasionally I'll have a re-jig of my portfolio and all the new ones will go in then. Maybe that's what these photographers are doing?

It might be worth PMing the photographers in question and just asking them direct. I bet you it's nothing like as serious as you think. After all, they agreed to shoot you in the first place!

I've had shoots where I know the photographer is happy with what we shot, but the photos are not in their portfolio. I just choose to assume they don't fit with the current layout.

Thankyou it does make me rethink and makes me feel a little better when others say it happens to them too, i am just quite a fragile sensitive model who thinks the worlds out to get her sometimes i appreciate peoples advice

I get it, you get it, everyone gets it. Sometimes people just don't use your photos for some reason. On another note, you can help the baby weight if you want to - it's just fat, you can lose it if you exercise and eat well. If you're unhappy with it, change it

In all, I really wouldn't worry if some people don't use the images, just keep working hard, enjoying yourself and working with the right people.
