Feedback for you... Nice body. Feedback for your images... They don't jump out and shout at you to look at me... Probably need to work on your poses more and expand your portfolio when you have shot with other photograohers... Not really anything else i can offer as constructive....

Hello! The poses in the pictures, I have not much to say about ... but the feeling, expression and facial expressions you need to practice. When you are no longer afraid to look "ugly" in the pictures, and dare to let go, then the fantastic pictures will start to come. Do not wait for photographers to contact you, contact photographers you want to work with and start getting photos that you want. I often devote a little extra force to the shoots when it is the model that contacted me and wants to work with me. But remember to strive as much as you photograph the photographer's idea, like when he photograph your idea (TFP). And yes, you have a nice body too!

My initial opinion is that your image selection is a bit repetitive, which is unsurprising as you only have three shoots under your belt and there is not much creative variety shown by the photographer/s you've worked with. It is almost as if the bowler, which appears in 7 out of 10 images, is the star of the show.

I suggest working with a number of local / regional photographers who shoot in the alternative / tattoo genres to both increase the breadth of your portfolio and gain inspiration for / practise at different poses and styles.

On this site, and similar ones, it won't be particularly easy to find the right photographers to work with as you do not fit the usual internet model stereotype or work in the most popular genres, but if you dig around you should find a few.

I would agree with the previous posts, but with even more focus on your expressions. In most of your shots you have your lips tight together, so it's not showing the expressions that I'm sure you could achieve. Try to do a series of expressions for your next few shoots, and you'll soon get used to delivering them on demand for example, the B&W Portrait shot with your head back and the rose, could be re done with all the standard expressions e.g. Happy, sad, excited, scared etc etc. A lot of your shots are "looking away" which is valid in a lot of cases, but you then have to express the emotion of the image using your pose alone. You have good eyes, so don't be afraid to use them! They are the first thing that most people look at when they first see an image. I think the B&W Portrait shot with your head back and the rose, is the best one so far, and hopefully there will be lots more to come, good luck, and keep going!
