Noone seems to want to actually answer your question, and so I will.

I'd leave them off. I get a little tired of seeing portfolios containing shots that the model won't do.

They are implied nude so if you don't want to work to that level anymore it's probably better not have them in your portfolio These pictures remind me of Brightonian's work. If you want to do beauty work have a look at http://www.modelmayhem.com/680246 Scott

Thankyou all for your compliments, the shoot taught me a lot about posing and expressions. Ive found my mouth goes a bit slanty and wonky when i don't relax it. I think these are better I think I might put number 4 in my port. Ive got more images coming from a recent bridal shoot, so I might be asking for another critique soon if the photographer doesnt do so first

What was NG banned for ?     Does anybody know what  happened to Hugh who used to be a regular on here till recently ?

Not much for these shots.    I think the helmet  does not suit you especially as you have nice hair.

In answer to your question, if you like them and think they are a good addition to your portfolio then put them up, it doesnt matter whether or not you do implied levels ever again but some photographer might really like them and end up booking you for your normal levels on the back of them. They also might attract another decent photographer like Nick who you might want to do something similar with. I wouldnt worry about sulky photographers, every model is free to determine levels with whoever they want as they see fit.

I thought you were asking because they were shot by Mr Giles.

You put images on your profile(s) because you like them - sod everyone else.

Several models have nude images but state that they don't do nude. As always the levels and photographers you  work with is entirely your choice.

Hugh left, he can still be found on model mayhem or on facebook.

I believe my distressed complaint to to 'admin' here about his consistent and frequently upsetting rudeness to me on forums (and Matt told me there were other complaints too from similarly concerned parties) was what led to him being banned.  It was a great relief to me to be able to go on a forum without him darting in and being nasty.  Always baffled me as he'd done some art-nude with me and was very nice.  Must just be a jeckle and hyde on the web and in real life.  Speaking about his photography I feel his best 'period' was the grain barn ones .. since then I've felt he's lost the plot on a number of occasions.


Your posts continue to amaze me Serena. You list Steve_Stanford as being one of the best art nude photographers, yet you think Nicks work has lost the plot? If anything, this statement suggests that it is you have lost the plot? Regardless of his blunt nature (possibly even what some people may consider abusive), his work stands on it's own and to try and bring it down, simply because you don't like the guy is pretty pathetic.

Whilst I now know Nick from FaceBook, I was pretty new here when he was banned, so can't comment on why he was banned, or on what running spats you may both have had,. But from what little I do know of him and his work, I just can't imagine you'd be his type of model, so can't believe he'd actually have worked with you? Of course, if I'm wrong, I'd love to see the images? If not, perhaps most of the other things you say about him are fibs too?

A little OT... sorry River (shots are lovely BTW)

You're accusing Serena of lying?

Well it seems to me, she continues to lead a campaign against him. There was absolutely no reason for her comments about him or his work in this thread.. but she took the opportunity to get a dig in.

I just can't see Nick ever having worked with Serena or a model of her type. So yeah, I guess I'm saying I don't believe her. Is that the same as saying she's lying? Of course, I'm more than happy to eat humble pie if she shows me the pictures. If not, then all I'm suggesting is that perhaps the other things she says about Nick should also be taken with a large pinch of salt.

Wow, ciaran - that's an unpleasant post.

I'm sure he's a lovely bloke in real life (never met him)... but while Nick was here he trolled for England. PS is a MUCH nicer place now, and his absence played a part in that improvement.

He seemed to have a lot of time-outs and 'second chances' before he was turfed out for good. I don't think he was treated unfairly.
