Hiya River......I have been a long time admirer of your work, but I believe your profile is beginning to look a little bit predictable. Saying that I do like the black and white boudoir shot, and think you should look at doing some more shoots along those lines

Hello River-

One thing that stands out for me is that there are not a huge number of recent photos. Say from 2013. Those you have added are probably not as good as those from previous years. (Except for one in B + W.) I can see why you have left the old photos that have been on for years. They're better.

Having worked with you, I know you are a fabulous model with a beautiful look and it is easy to take lovely photos of you. I will blame the photographers for not doing you justice in 2013!

PS. IMHO The photo you have added entitled "Blue Toned" does not do you any favours. I think you should replace it.

Very good - I would really like to work with you re: an informal shoot. You have a great, unique 'look'.

It looks good, but I prefer to see photos which are less than 6 months old, even if they are not as good as older images.

The ones which are two or three years old should be replaced with newer images.

For me, this is my favourite shot on your portfolio (beautiful face and lovely photograph):




This is good for showing your figure and a bit of your personality:




I'm not keen on this.  The lines on your neck are jumping out at me.  I would have had to clone them out if it was mine:




Nice photograph, but I don't think this adds anything to the portfolio:




I think you have stronger images than this:




I'm on the fence about this... It's colourful but doesn't really do much for me:





I hope that's OK.

Best regards
Paul

You are a very attractive subject, but my reaction from scanning through your images is that there is something missing. I'm looking for an engagement with the camera so that something of your personality jumps out, which is possibly not helped by too many images of a similar kind. It all seems too 'safe'. Try some different role playing and see what happens.

My tip is to beware of the raised chin/low camera angle! To me it makes your eyes look sleepy.
My favourite shot is the jnorman portrait where you are looking straight to camera. I know you are looking at me!

Not sure you do!! Just keep doing what you are doing!!Your main page shot is stunning, but I am not sure you need two..one detracts from the other a bit IMO..keep the main one?

You have a few "duplicate" poses and may be you could just pick one. If there is a weakness it is in some of the head shots at the bottom of the page..could be thinned out may be?

And just to be contrary (known for it!), I really, really like the B&W ones Paul_Jones is less fond of!! So, can't please everybody!!

I think you have a great port, just keep adding to it and editing it down as you go to the "very best". Something I am not too good at myself because I can never make up my mind what to keep and what to go!!
