Since going to a Freebie account - whereby one gets TEN images available, I've since noticed quite a few top models on here only have free accounts - namely because their  good modelling name and many excellent reviews speak for themselves.

Good reviews usually equals plenty of more shoots...and within ten images, one can encapsulate basically what a photographer is looking for...i.e. knows how to pose, photogenic, good figure etc.,

However, If I was a photographer I think I would still have a Platinum Account to show as many different styles and models that had worked with, as possible.

A professional model agency after all, usually  has basic photographs of any given model, to show full length and headshot plus profile pictures of models on their books to entice bookings.

A professional model doing the casting rounds, usually has a basic 12 picture portfolio to show clients, showing up-todate images.

Some Photographers or photographic studios have portfolio images going back years to prove what they are capable of, with lighting and different genres etc., Multi images.

And generally a photographer's professional life is longer than that of a model.

So perhaps a model doesn't actually need a huge profile. As long as their basic images are up-todate and representative of their capabilities in modelling, that's all that matters?

Whereas a photographer has to capture on image, all the models ( with many varied looks)  all of the time...

Purestorm is still my favourite modelling site.

In my experience, as a photographer obviously, the thing most likely to generate interest from models is the simple act of posting images. Either if I post them myself or if the model does. It works even with a small portfolio. If you want plenty of interest post often. Just having a large portfolio, of itself, does nothing.

Facebook is particularly good at generating interest although it can be a double-edged sword. At times I deliberately hold back posting stuff because I simply can't do everything I get approached for.

sadHee! Hee! You just answered my next question - which was how MANY images do people need to see on a profile, before they decide to work with them...It seems a small port will work as well as a huge one...it's quality surely, not quantity that counts - plus keeping the port fresh and up-todate.
I came off FB - too many GWC 's...Happy to work with amateurs as well as pro's , but some of the weirdo's on there...Plus FB is addictive and can be a time-waster...
With Purestorm, everything is well monitored. Plus I prefer the review system.
