Should I delete my profile on here then if its mostly UK?



Not at all - just get everyone else you know to join here too.

Whilst some issues might be country specific, especially when it comes to contracts and legal issues, there's also a lot of common ground too.

Yes, Suzy Monty, what a helpful and researched response that was! Just to concur with other posts here, yes, leave your profile up of course..UK and EU togs do go to the States!

And if you are ever over here, I would certainly be happy to work with you if anything I could offer would help your portfolio...

Good luck with it all..keep up your passion and drive, keep "knocking on doors" and I am sure success will come your way..

Hey

I worked in a studio in Atlanta for a while ... unfortunately you were still in diapers at the time lol.

Firstly, NEVER pay for a portfolio. Do not answer ads for 'free photo shoot' or go to castings where they are obviously picking just anyone .. you will be pressured to pay for a worthless shoot.

You are an attractive young lady. Look on Model Mayhem and OMP [One Model Place] and get some tfp shoots [where you give your time for free and the photographer gives you some edited images free. This will get you a starter portfolio, some experience and possibly a start to get paid work from the same sites. Do not be concerned about working with beginners or amateurs, you can help each other. Be very concerned that whoever you shoot with is legit and has references.

Always act in a professional and friendly way. Every contact, shoot, email and text is part of your marketing campaign and word does get around, especially bad stuff.

Personally, and that is probably because I am shallow and unimaginative lol, I do not like the first three [no makeup] images on your profile. Perhaps with the right lighting that may work, but I love you main one and that is what made me read on. I would only offer a bare face if asked.

Hope that is useful. Feel free to message me if you have any more concerns

Go for it and good luck
