Does anybody have some advice!? Let me know what you think please! thanks.

I think you have a beautiful face/figure and are showing a varied portfolio The only problem you might have with this website is that its mainly based in the UK so offers of shoots might not be very high. It might be worth you also joining model mayhem as there is a larger US based membership. Stick around though, the forums can be helpful. Good luck with your modelling xx

You may also want to read through the forums on here and other sites as your question is not uncommon!

Also it appears to be a simple question but there are so many aspects its hard to know where to start.

As has been said, you have beautiful features, a lovely figure and just need to expand your port!.

Good luck and hope you stick with us!

I know how to feel, its difficult not having many photographers all that close by.

It's better to have one quality shoot a month than 3 not so good ones a week - When I started out I used to travel every month to one of the larger cities and work with a photographer/ who then became one of my best friends. It's always worth saving up some money and getting out to other areas if you can. Another option is to find some nice locations near where you are staying, and within the casting you can maybe mention that you had a location in mind (that way the photographer can come to you). I always found location work much nicer, you get a better chance to actually have a chat with the photographer prior to the shoot so you are more comfortable with one another before shooting.

I always say - just be honest, everybody respects honesty. Tell people you don't have much experience but you are willing to learn and put the effort in to help get great images and most photographers respond well to that.

Figure out what "type" of modelling you would like to focus on/what you are best suited to. I do think the pinup/lingerie stuff really suits you, see if you can find some good photographers specialising in that style nearish to where you are based. Remember it never hurts to message people and don't fear rejection because we all get it from time to time.

When I message really good photographers asking for collaborations I usually say "if you are looking to test out your lights or a new style please give me a shout, would love to have the opportunity to work with you".

It's also a good idea to see if there are any modelling groups specific to your area on Facebook - that way you will find people not on the main websites, you will also come across models and hopefully make a few new friends. Other local models who have lots of experience are good friends to have, they will know who to "avoid" working with.

Good luck

xx
