as above a full length shot would be handy. ideally some simple full length shots taken against a wall are good enough to tell what you look like.

Perhaps, put up a casting for some TF shoots and see whats comes of them

Duck face only works for ducks. Don't do it.

Short advice would be find a free couple of hours and shoot with my partner and I ( www.lisaviolet.co.uk )
We're about twenty minutes from you and have new lens gear which needs a test.

In your profile notes you've written 'I am a mum to 2 children. Single'.

If I was you, I'd change that. This isn't a dating site, and you might attract unwanted attention.

I would suggest getting some clear head shots, some in swimsuit and some nude.  I personally don't think they need to be super pics, but ones which show you clearly, so maybe as a minimum taken by a friend with a reasonable camera to start.  By all means follow up offers of tests shoots etc

I also suggest regular contact on the site in order to answer messages, and carry through any interest.

Aww, I like that particular duck-face, one of the best I've seen for ages JayJay, you need to take up one or two of the better offers folk have made.

The poor lass is going to have loads of messages.

She is going to have to weed through the mountains of shite to get the few genuine ones.

I just hope she simply looks at every profile rather than simply take credentials/claims by photographers into account. A picture being worth 1000 words etc. about the skill & intent of the photographer.
