Pros: -There is a nice variety of ethnicities, ages, and body-types.
-The women/girls have a very authentic quality to them.
-All picture sets (or Folios, as the site calls them) are available as zip files.
-A huge amount of content.
-ISMS recently abandoned its multi-tiered pricing scheme, so now all members get all the content.
-Decent quality videos, downloadable as .mp4s, with no DRM.
-Discounts available if you can locate a banner ad and link to the site through it.
-Some of the more popular Abby Winters models (such as Toni B) have some additional sets here.
-Very fast downloads.
-11 updates per week
Cons: The single biggest issue here is that there is no good search feature. Basically, you can search by country and that's about it. Considering the many hundreds of models on the site, we should be able to search by age, race, body type, and more.

The other downside is that the pictures aren't huge, especially by today's standards.
Bottom Line: Perhaps it's officially true: with today's fancy cameras *anyone* can take a great picture. Well, anyone can take an in-focus picture with decent lighting, if these girls do indeed shot themselves. I'm skeptical because there is a fairly uniform quality. When real girls shot pictures of themselves in the mirror or whatever, they're usually pretty terrible with red eyes, poor lighting, and such. I'm not convinced the site is authentic.

It IS, however, a great source of unconventional models. There are many races, many body types, and many ages. The vast majority are caucasian girls in their early 20s, but there are some women up to 50. Many of the models are not conventionally beautiful in the super-thin, fake-breasted, air-brushed manner that we're used to. They seem real with a joyful vitality.

Some of the models have more of an artistic sense than others. Some models just shoot their bodies in a straightforward manner, while others get more creative. The premise stays the same, but there is still a surprising amount of variety.

If you enjoy amateurs having a good time naked, this site is for you. It updates 11 times per week and the quality of the updates is consistent and doesn't overload you with a lot of generic junk. The personality of the models really comes through and they seem like real people.

I wish the site had a decent search option, but that hardly matters when you consider the uniqueness of the site and how it does so much right. Highly recommended.

uscue (39) You are right, nothing about this site screams authentic which after touring the site I'm not interested. But, I can also interpret it "I Shot Myself" as being a site where people send in their own professional (nude) model photos instead of the company just going out and shooting themselves.

Is there anywhere in the members area where they ask you to send in material? If so, they would at least make me believe the premise a little more.

It's complicated. Perhaps a few of the models are professionals, but the vast majority are definitely amateurs. Most look very different from the standard sort of nude models we see on all those other sites.

My comments were mostly directed at the idea that these models actually take the pictures themselves. Perhaps they do, but I'm certain there is also a representative from the site "coaching" them through the shoot, helping with lighting, suggesting poses, and giving some artistic instruction.

Even if that's the case, you still have the fact that most of these girls are as amateur as it gets. It's a tough call, but the question of authenticity doesn't bother me too much. It's just interesting to debate.

To answer your question (finally), there's no place where you can submit photos directly to the site. There is a page where they invite you to model for them.

This actually makes it look like the models do, in fact, shoot themselves and then submit the results to the company. If this is how it works, I'm impressed. I have trouble merely taking a picture of myself and a couple friends at arm's length when we're out at a bar. Part of the requirements say "you must have one hand on the camera at all times."

Interesting.

The "Shoot Yourself" link is where users submit - we ask for samples first to weed out the dross, guys pimping out their girlfriends or sending pics downloaded form other sites. If you follow the link and read the procedure you'll see it clearly isn't an invitation to 'model for us'. All the folios are shot by the girls themselves, though obviously we aren't there to see if any might be getting a little help om their friend. We presume it happens occasionally.

Yes, it's an invitation to 'model for us', but it is an invitation to submit content to the site. I think what I originally meant by that comment was that the models come to you, rather than you going out and hiring them from professional agencies. Either way, it speaks to your authenticity.

Thanks for the reply. You've got a really unique and high-quality site.
