I'd drop the dark picture added 10th may, it's not helpful.

I definitely prefer your fashion and clothed work, some really beautiful stuff in that genre. Your art nude looks very accomplished. Not really as interested in the glamour stuff though I expect its a significant part of your income.

Thanks.
I'm trying to phase out the glamour stuff.
I have some 50's pin-up images coming soon.

I'd also get rid of these as they make you look inexperienced IMHO:





I would have thought your forte would be nudes.

You don't have a forum avatar at the moment - you can set one here if you want:

Welcome back

Thanks for the input.

I don't have any other head shots.
To be honest, I'm not too comfortable with beauty shots and close-ups. Eeek!

I think lingerie and artistic nudes are the way to go.

I didn't realise my avatar wasn't working. Maybe because i tried to use a nude pic?
I'll try another

Thanks again

I think you might be confusing your main image with the forum avatar - they're two different things. You have to use the link I provided above to set a forum avatar. I'm pretty sure nudes are OK too.

Ah, I see!
Ok, I'll sort it.
Thanks

Excellent main pic- nude with whitewashed buildings. Top quality. Rock pool pic is very good too.

The others pics look mediocre to me and some are quite unflattering, especially "Hollywood Laundromat".

The impression I get is that most of your profile does you few favours, but it is only my opinion. I can see your main pic and think - wow yes, great model, fantastic; and then look at the rest and think no thanks. Personally I think posing sitting on the loo with knickers down is never a great look.

Anyway, good luck with getting some better pics!

First off - you have an amazing figure/had an amazing figure.. Your portfolio confuses me a little - in your main shot I think - "woah hot blonde glamour model", then there are some slightly weak ones of you with red hair and I think "meh alternative" then theres the fabulous "alt nude" in the rock pool, then some fashiony stuff. I'm not saying you need to be a one trick pony but people usually want to see who they are working with and your strengths are all dotted around with no focus at the moment. It maybe just seems that way because you have a few different hair colours in your portfolio. These are my favourite shots on your portfolio.. The not so good - I think that sometimes your "moody" expression comes off as "harsh" or it might just be the lighting/photographers. I do prefer you with the "softer" expressions. I hope that helps a little - you have such good stuff in there but its weakened by the not so good stuff. Your beautiful with a fantastic figure - go use it! xxx

So I should go quality over quantity.
I guess I'll have to build my pics up again with the same hair colour.

Quality is always the thing to strive for. particularly if you want to market art nude and lingerie rather than glamour.

I don't think you need to change all your pictures to your current hair colour. You maybe just need one or two pictures that show that and the rest can be your best pictures that showcase your posing and what a photographer to achieve. You can cover your hair colour in your notes also.

That first picture that Chrissie picked out is seriously flattering to your figure and if your body still looks like that, who cares about the hair colour

Really don't change lots of your best work unless you happen to get something even better

Definately - The stronger shots are really good and I'm sure they would attract enough attention for you to get some more good shoots with the new hair colour.
Good luck

I totally agree with the points made by Chrissie.

This photo is excellent.
