Is it the same as your portfolio here? Having attention drawn to your portfolio here probably makes sense. If you want people to view you here of course.

My feeling, having looked at both sites is that you are a pretty girl whose portfolio does not make the best of you. That's a mixture of things - too many with limited expressions, not enough thought gone into the styling of the shots - and frankly some grim photography. I'm sure with some more effort it could be much better. All meant in the nicest most helpful way!

Should I be a model or am I not right?

That's not a question for anyone but you to answer I feel; if you want to, try it, if you don't - why start a website and page here?

Even the best of models here start with a fairly ordinary portfolio, the successful are noted by agencies or have drive, resilience and personalities which eventually get some results. The money and hours are rubbish for the majority I'd think, so you'd better be determined. Probably best off seeking advice from other models really, for real insight into it all.

[qt][author]Lightwing12Star[/author] Should I be a model or am I not right?[/qt] Define model! Internet modelling is quite different from real world modelling If you would like the fun of posing and the possibility of getting some nice shots you can look back on - why not? If you mean as a career - probably not - just as I should not try to be a professional photographer! Even getting a reasonable number of shoots as an internet model will involve quite a bit of effort in terms of looking for jobs and also time and money on clothes accessories and make-up - together with studying poses and developing your skills. There are only a very small number of models who make any significant money without getting their kit off and it is clear from your profile this does not interest you - and nothing wrong with that. See if you can get some TF shoots by posting a casting call - i.e. you pose and get images you can use for your portfolio as payment - but make sure you use guys whose own portfolios show they have the ability to do you justice. (and smile a bit more! )
