I don't think the images on your portfolio do you any favours at all. There are one or two that are fine, the one under 'Fetish' is a good strong shot. There is one of you listed under the 'images' section which is shot against a sheet, and it completely ruins the shot. You need to fill your port with good strong images and sell yourself. Im hoping that as your notes tell us you have been working for two years with many amazing photographers, you have some much better shots to add. The one on your 'bio' page on your website would be a good one to use.
Finally may I just congratulate you on your donation to Cancer Research. It takes a brave girl to shave off her hair, particularly a model. Well done.

I agree about the quality of your images maybe being a bit "weak" - however if they are generating paid bookings and if paid bookings are your priority then they are "doing" the job just fine.

You list many styles on your website - It would be good to see some of these styles in your portfolio.

Try not to use too many images from the same set/shoot, people want to see variety.

What I would do if I were you is maybe try and figure out what area I want to "specialise" in - get some really strong images in that style. Seek out photographers who really know how to bring out the best in their models. Also maybe see about getting some decent head shots.

Your rates on your website are confusing, might be a good idea to simplify it slightly 19 levels with 6 different rates is hard to calculate if people want 10 minutes of fashion/20 minutes of nude/30 minutes of glamour and an hour of gothic. Maybe just say £25 up to nude levels - contact me for adult rates with a detailed message about the shoot.

You do have an interesting tattoo on your back, would love to see a high quality black and white shot of it in the artnude sort of style with gorgeous lighting. I'm not sure if the other tattoos will work in your favour though - might be a good idea to mention them in your portfolio and add that you are happy for them to be photoshopped out or covered with makeup (if you don't mind that is).

Best of luck to you

Chrissie is almost always correct, and subtle in her assessment of these matters; hers is the feedback you should take on board I feel.
I'm not always correct, but do always comment, unless a portfolio is so dreadful that the 'if you can't say something nice...' Rule applies.

In your portfolio, I'm left confused. In two years I can't see evidence of any decent pictures, most in fact looking like phone pics. Which leads to think you get work because if your adult level indicates. That's not unusual, or innapropriatw to the site. However, I genuinely struggle (after reviewing the portolio only minutes ago) any nude picture, or anything remotely obvious as a glamour. So honestly, I think you'll be attracting nothing more than a photographer type likely to give you more muddy and dull pictures. Based on other glamour or adult models here, many of whom have a proven history of producing great pictures, and many who charge as low as £20-£35 p/h to do so - you're not likely to be making a regular or profitable income from your modelling now or long term. So, I'm confused again.

Really, have a scan about and find which pictures you really want taken of you, go all out to get those shots taken, give yourself a fighting chance to enjoy your modelling and be shown at your best. I hope you are successful.

I think you look great as a model and I think that many photographers would be willing to pay you however as Chrissie said you do need more variety in your port, maybe show a variety of genres or settings (not several photos from the same set).

Hello. I'd say Work with a photographer who has a flattering eye and is willing to bother photoshopping your pictures.
