Yup the forums are dead. However to answers your questions above 1. Nothing' much wrong I am not keen on the phone shot and there are a couple that look a bit "shot in a bedroom with on camera flash" (can't link them easy on the pad) 2. Really nice, have been amen admirer for a while 3. Hell yes DaveMinniHey lovelies! I just added a whole bunch of new images. I need you guys to tell me 1. what I need to get rid of and what I need more of 2. how my port is generally 3. if you would work with me based on my current look and port. Please don't critique the photographers work also. Thanks in advance
1. nothing really, it's a decent port 3. yeahMinniHey lovelies! I just added a whole bunch of new images.

Thanks for your reply. No hard feelings then haha.Kiboko(1) and (2) - profile looks promising. I'm going to be very cheeky and suggest it lacks the genre I aspire to, - model photographed against a beautiful natural scenic backdrop, most of the images are indoor or studio shots with the exception of three outdoor shots with an urban backdrop. HOWEVER - (3) Most likely not! Reason: checked out your profile and found I'd written this in "Your personal notes for this profile (These are only visible to you") "Another no reply, Nov. 2012 re. shoots 2013 or studio shoot during the winter". I must have written that in 2012 or early 2013.
I reply to all serious requests providing there is sufficent information and I would like to work with them. There may have been a few I've missed in the past due to being busy, but I always try to get back to them... If I don't it's due to one of the above reasons. In some cases both. Sometimes emails are just missed though, most people will write again as they understand having accounts on every modelling/social networking site and my personal email on top means that occasionally some do get lost.KibokoNo, I just moved on. But assuming you posted this with a view to getting more exposure, increasing your client base or with the genuine intention of improving your portfolio, I hope that you'll have perhaps learnt by now that in ignoring genuine requests, especially from local photographers, you're likely to come across as someone who doesn't reply or is difficult to communicate with (not this site but another beginning with P actually assesses reply rates and they're visible to members). At the very least you miss out on work. If I'd have photographed you, and if you were adept at what you do and proved reliable, I'd have recommended you to others. There's a group of us who do paid group shoots throughout the summer, it's regular work, - I don't think any of my circle of photographer friends have photographed you or perhaps even heard of you, - and thereby lies the importance of networking. You do yourself out of that if you don't reply. So I don't necessarily think your portfolio needs a great deal of improvement, I'm probably not worthy to judge but it looks fine to me, - just keep it fresh and update it regularly, - the problem to be resolved which you might be unaware of, is to ensure your communications are beyond reproach. Nothing on your portfolio to suggest it isn't, but who knows how many other photographers might have contacted you and heard nothing back and written similar comments in their notes?
