 I didn't see a request by the model in question for a portfolio review? so why give one.
Oh, sorry. I'll only post when asked to in future, maybe you could do the same?

well, she's right, she does need some new images, her port doesn't do her any favours it looks like some kind of instagram profile at the mo.I do like the couple of images by Mikex79 though.
If you want a portfolio review, why not post in that section rather than on a random thread. If you don't, it would be polite to assume that other people who don't ask for a review are not interested in your views on their photos.

Saw the thread and just had to have a search for the casting, the 2nd one..

Couple of things I note, she's originally from Russia so maybe English isn't her first language.. and maybe her casting is too general.. certainly photogenic enough and in need of some more polished photos.

Of the 2 photographers she's worked with on here, it would seem she's after images to her first listed photographers standard..

It seems she's not willing to pay for the right photographer, who she could approach directly, to create the photos she wants. So she will just have to wade through all the replies she gets until she finds a photographer, she deems, is skilled enough.

Ah well, according to Silverk, (6th response to the thread), "the only way we get better is by being critiqued".

Not much point in critiquing a third party who has never posted on this thread (even if this were true).

Stolenfaces et al. Perhaps I was unkind in my post, I didn't intend to be , however, she does have two good images and some others that aren't as "polished" ( well said that man) .
Good luck to the model in question, I'm sure she will find an amazing photographer to work with. In future I'll stick to "gr8 images Hun" if I ever feel like passing a comment again.

I think you will find that it is a "unwritten" rule that one does not comment on another portfolio unless invited to do so.  Its all to do with living in glass house I think.blush

If she's looking for a top quality photographer to help her put a portfolio together, why doesn't she approach one instead of insulting everyone that applied to her casting!


And why doesn't she pay for one too?

Model agencies don't rely on TFCD work for their models' portfolios so why are unsigned models looking to improve their port seemingly so unwilling to invest in it?

TFCD should be for photographers and models learning the trade and starting to build a portfolio or for fun shoots, concepts, personal projects etc. so models, photographers, MUA etc. should set their expectations to work with others at around the same level of experience as they are.

The trouble, is everyone seems to be after something for nothing these days.

I'm sorry to sound thick, but how do you folks know which particular model is being ridiculed on this occasion, and also how many applications she's received and how many replies she's sent?

Ah , I genuinely didn't realise that, thank you for enlightening me. I was rather puzzled by one of the responses to my comments as it seemed to be inferring something that certainly was not mentioned or implied in my post. I'll go back to drinking lemsip and feeling sorry for myself till my "man flu" goes

I didn,t know who was being talked about until the casting was pointed out and have only just seen it. Badly worded and disrespectful, yes. But she is clearly has the potential to be of a high standard..I can see how she would want a really excellent photographer...decent images could lift her to a completely diffirent level. The truth is there are very few people capable of and probably willing to provide them. most applicants will probably be fantasists or freeloaders and the few applicants who geniunely could give her something will be lost in the dross or she will be to inexperienced to identify the right applicant I have no doubt she has been inundated with useless offers and "advice" on how to place castings and has now probably left the site in disgust So my offer of paid work is probably pointless..
