I have some fetish and alternative images in my portfolio though you are probably better off looking for inspiration in Bizarre Magazine or on FetLife.

Woops! Sorry, we're not supposed to mention other sites any more.

alts more style and attitude than pose and that all depends on genre - cupcake pin up going to be more flirty than cyber gothinc modelling - ulorin vex, masumi max, even purestorms andromadax are great alt models that you can learn from but as mentioned before dont try and be someone else just be yourself

As stated - alt is more a state of mind and style of photography than any particular pose.
Try finding a photographer who shoots alt images you like and offering a TF shoot. A good photographer (or stylist) should be able to help you find the right style.

Alt isn't just about tattoos.
At the moment you have a glamour look. Everything about your current look is glam.

You need to change your look first to look even remotely alt.
Are you going for ''ALT'' as in FRONT
or
''ALT'' As in bizzare or such like

Do your research.

Find out who the top 'alt', creative and fetish models are. Study their work, study their poses, look at who they have worked with, look at the sets, the styling, everything. Get a hold of some books, type things into google. I have books on pinup, dita von teese, 'kinky nature' is a great book full of models in latex in the woods.
You need to put the effort in.
I hate putting things on a plate, but heres some starters:

Models:
-Ulorin Vex
-Andromeda X :http://www.modelmayhem.com/515875
- Ellen: http://www.facebook.com/ElegyEllemModel
-Morgana : http://threnodyinvelvet.com/ she dosnt do much alt anymore more fashion, but a sure inspiration.
-Cervena fox: http://www.modelmayhem.com/812816

Dita von teese...masuimi max...bianca beauchamp..darenzia...ophelia overdose... all top fetish models.

Theres hundreds out there.

Alternative is hard to do, you are either 'alt' or not, alt set apart the rest as alternative mdoels make it as offering their look as a kind of service rather than a typical model who can mold themselves to any look.
I am lucky in that i can be flexible in my look and i do nudes, but there are so many things i cant do.

Looking at your current portfolio, you suit glamour, and possibly 'front style', which i guess is a kind of alternative glamour.

I wish you luck. x

Or Alt as in real life not in a magazine alt :P

I can't really add an awful lot more to what the others have said but if you're flexible and brave you could take inspiration from Mosh. Browse through mags like Bizarre and Front but you'll see it's more about attitude than having 'the look'

You might want to find inspiration from models like these: Mosh - http://www.modelmayhem.com/portfolio/219654/viewall - more at miss-mosh.deviantart.com - she's very flexible and you appear to be quite flexible, so she might be a good inspiration for you Meluxine - http://www.modelmayhem.com/portfolio/796671/viewall - more at meluxine.deviantart.com Vanessa Lake - http://www.modelmayhem.com/portfolio/1135277/viewall - more at vanessalake.deviantart.com - she has a very glamour look/posing style but gets pigeonholed into "alt" because of her sleeve Scar - http://www.modelmayhem.com/portfolio/8939/0 - I don't think she has a dA? Ryo Love - http://www.modelmayhem.com/portfolio/417761/viewall - more at ryo-says-meow.deviantart.com Ulorin Vex - http://www.modelmayhem.com/portfolio/2178/0 - more at ulorinvex.deviantart.com dA accounts are interesting because you can see more than one image from a set, read about the model's adventures in their journal (Mosh in particular has a very useful FAQ) and go through their favourites to find more. You can also look through lists on MM. Photographers it might be worth checking out are Mastertouch and Pelicanh on dA. There are plenty of others but my brain hurts a bit at the moment so I won't look them up. :P Fetish wardrobe (expensive!) and interesting styling are often hallmarks of alt photography, but both take quite a while to learn/acquire. Generally look around and see what you find. This is a cool website too: http://www.altexclusive.com ...which has lots of great alt models on it. Skin Two magazine is a British magazine which I hear good things about as well, though I don't know very much about it personally.

Bizarre and skin two are good places to start Alt clothing particularly latex and proper corsets are quite expensive allthough there are many small companies on ebay that make good quality stuff for cheap.
