    Typical, cropped at the joints and a roof line running through the head, when will the boy ever learn.

    I do like the brochure though, maybe make the web addy a little smaller so that it doesn't intrude into her and the overall look as much?

    It's a good photo and all, but I'm not sure it's your best Darren. You've got other shots that have a bit more pizzazz which would make me want to take a second look.

    I suppose it depends what you want out of it, and who you're giving it to.. but the brochure doesn't really tell me what you do.

    Do you do portraits of Joe Bloggs, fashion, faux fashion (shoot people who think they look like models), or anything inbetween or outside of that?

    It's nice and simple though, which is good, better than being over-designed.

    I like it, the idea is simple and its not cluttered. Is it just me or does she look like Michael Jackson?

    The sad look on Josette's face, the crumpled grey shirt and the pink lipstick would not make me look any further.
    Doesn't work for me. But what would I know?

    Very simplictic, a lot to like, but I feel the brochure is not balanced. As already stated the url needs to be no bigger that the first line. But the lettering right in the middle doesn't work for me. How about on an angle from the top to the right, following the arm. That will leave a small spot in the bottom to include abn or something without cluttering the front. The colours in the lettering are good and complement the image.

    To be honest it doesn't do much for me. The positioning of the letters draws attention to the midsection of the model, which I don't think is her most flattering aspect. It's a good photo, but as Jules commented, I reckon there are better ones out there that you've taken to pick from.

    Cheers!
