Hi all.
Well,i am finding a bit hard to "promote" my portfolio..i know i cant have a profissional carreer on modeling, but i want to do it as a hobbie. So i dont know how to expose my ideas to photographers, i really would like new challenges.

1. Raise a thread in the forum

2. Shoot some really nice pictures with photographers who know what they're doing.

3. Post the resultant pictures in your port, in competitions and in as many places as you can - refresh them regularly.

Job done

No 2 is the hardest bit - finding capable photographers willing to provide you with a style of imagery which sells you well. So lots of ferreting around and PMs to likely looking candidates.

Good luck

Not,certain about your look right now, there seems to be a mix in your portfolio and I can't reconcile this with your stats. Otherwise we've some techniques and projects that need a model, and tf might be an option if you'd be interested?

Looking at your portfolio it's obvious to me that you have plenty of potential. I'm sure if you follow the instructions above you will have dozens of good photographers to choose from.

Good look
I’m sorry about the white jacket with ties at the back. My doctor says I’ve made excellent progress and I will be released from Broadmoor on Tuesday; fancy a shoot on Wednesday!?

HI,thank you for your reply and advice
I try to participate in competitions, but it is hard because it is always about how many people you know and talk and not actually about how good is the photo or how good is the model, so i always think it is a bit unfair.
yeah, the point 2 it is hard because i consider myself amateur on this industry so i dont really know which style of imagery would sell me well. thats way i want to try almost every style to try to find my own.

That's very true but it assumes the only reason for entering is to win the competition. However if I were you I'd enter every competition going whether you expect to win or not - it gets your likeness out there and in front of peoples' noses. Some competitions don't allow a profile link but others do. Obviously it makes it easier for people to discover who you are and to contact you if competition entries include a link!
