Behind the scenes from our poster shoot!

**This is taken with a point and shoot camera, It is merely a behind the scenes shot. If you don't understand what that means, here you go: it was not taken with composition in mind. It is just for fun, to document the shoot. If you wish to unfollow me, be my guest**

This shot was behind the scenes, fair enough, but I have to agree with the people saying that her work overall doesn't really compare to when she first started. It's about time people stop fawning because Oooooh, pretty! She's worked with lots of photographers, and it's almost unanimously agreed that Insuh and Sito are the only ones who produced markedly impressive images. The only two photographers who really succeeded are also the only two photographers who are incapable of taking a bad photo. I mean seriously? The only constant in all of her recent work is herself as the model, but instead of directing critique at her, you're going to pretend that every single photographer just sucks? No, it's not all of those photographers, it's the one model that they all seemed to fail at shooting. Most of her uploads are well-done in all of the aspects for which the photographer is responsible. Good composition, focus, colors, wardrobe.. the only thing that isn't good is the model. But no, I'm sure it's just a sucky photographer.

It pisses me off that somebody with the kind of beauty that almost every woman in the world would give up years of their lifespan to have is just sitting on it. Clearly you can succeed to some extent just standing there looking pretty, because look at how many people fawn over her, but she shouldn't be catering to those people. Somebody who is so ridiculously blessed and who claims to want to do something with that blessing shouldn't settle for pleasing people who will drop their pants over nothing but a pretty face. Make your audience the people who actually have standards because otherwise you're never going to improve.

Honestly, at this point I don't know who I blame more for the deteriorating quality of Susan's portfolio (or of any model who starts to plateau)- the model, or the hundreds of people who kiss her ass as if she is doing everything right. If I could glance in the general direction of a camera and have people profess their love for me over it every day, then I'd do it too.

If you spoil somebody for doing nothing, then they will continue to do nothing. People need to stop kissing the pretty girl's ass and hold her to the same standard that they would hold anybody else, because all spoiling a model does is show them that they don't need a work ethic to succeed as long as laziness looks pretty on them.

I've just recently gone through all of her work and I have no idea what you're talking about. Her recent work is just as beautiful as her earlier work, it's just different styles.

These 2 images were next to each other on the side of my page, one is from 2 years ago and the photographer you mentioned and one is from the poster she did recently. sideshowsito.deviantart.com/ar… susancoffey.deviantart.com/art…

Her face, body and pose look just as stunning in both and in my opinion quite similar. Her face literally almost looks identical except she's tilting her head in opposite directions. She also doesn't look like she's aged a day. The only differences I can tell is that her hair was a lot more red back then, she was a little more pale and she's sitting on a bed in a much more sexualized setting and outfit with another very scantily dressed girl in the background. Actually all of the work from that photographer seems extremely sexualized.

It seems to me that the people who are criticizing are just people who prefer the much more sexualized versions of her modeling. That's fine, but understand that she doesn't have to please your specific preferences for her. She's her own person who clearly is doing something she loves because she loves it, not because she feels the need to please you or anyone else. You might prefer that style but she is free to model in any style that she chooses.

And she's gorgeous in them all!

Finally a person who agrees with me!
I think people these days only care about sexualized works,if they see something more natural is not that good anymore.
I hope she continues this way,I really like to see how Susan's natural beauty is :)

She's going to be gorgeous in every picture she ever takes because she is gorgeous. I don't see why you're crediting her for the part of her modeling that her parents had more to do with than she does.

Clearly I'm not the only person who thinks she's gotten worse and I take offense to you accusing me of preferring her older, sexualized work. That's not only really ignorant but... Seriously? Look at the many sexualized shots in her new portfolio and tell me that again with a straight face.

Also I'm really commenting on here entire career with emphasis on the present because she no longer works with the only two photographers to get something special out of her so the flaws in her modeling have become obvious.

Not to make the same point again but I just came across this image from her earlier work with the photographer you said captured her the best. sideshowsito.deviantart.com/ar…

If you look at her upper body she has the exact same tilt of her head, face, mouth, and angle of her body as the recent photo I shared to compare. Hell, even her left arm is resting outward in a similar way! It's really just her hair and outfit that changes the style. Plus the extremely suggestive girl behind her who is also beautiful.

All I know is she is stunning, both then and now. Anyone who says otherwise is off their meds.

For some reason the second link I posted didn't load. Trying again. Seriously, look at them side by side. She looks almost identical aside from the outfit and hair. susancoffey.deviantart.com/art… sideshowsito.deviantart.com/ar…
