Hi,

Sorry to hear of your health problems, and i hope that whatever it is soon becomes better.

From what you say this photographer is a narrow minded bigot, and should not be allowed on this website,for safeties sake i think a lot of models do, and should take a chaperone on some assignments.
Especially if its him !!

All the best. x




Are you for real mr gwc

Don't be silly.

All the photographer has actually done is contact a model who has a chaperone policy, and said that he doesn't like chaperones for secnd shoots onwards.

He probably hasn't read her profile..... Hardly a hanging offence.

Mention this on your profile.

Thats all there is too it. People can choose their own chaperone policy, its up to the individuals.

The problem starts when people start saying "oooh, a photographer should allow chaperones..." etc. Just let people make their own minds up.

heyyyyy

thank you neil and lee for your input

and thank you to everyone who is being supportive such as hannah and other models and photograohers

im not going to put on the forum exactly whats matter with me as i think it personal to me...but if a photographer books a shoot with me i will tell them just as i have done with lee...

its also states clearly on my profile that i take a chaperone...

every picture on my profile has been taken with a chaperone present...

and i dont think it affects my work what so ever ...

i didnt start up this thread to be another chpaerone thread it was purely about how the photographer re-acted to me when it states clearly on my profile page...and iv always been honest (not like what he accused me of) and when i do shoot or am shooting im totally honest as to why my chaperone is with me ...i dont want my health to be sprouted out everywhere ...i do however like people to be aware of health conditions

spoke to the photographer concerned...and the blocking was un- intentional...id like to think this is the end of the matter...we are discussing things personally which is the best way

I've seen things you people wouldn't believe. Attack ships on fire off the shoulder of Orion. I watched c-beams glitter in the dark near the Tanhauser Gate.

Out of order? What a lot of tosh!

Feel free to take anyone you like to shoot if the photographer will accept them but what is truly out of order is to brand those who prefer not to work with chaperones as being disrespectful of the personal safety of models. That is rubbish. Many, many professional photographers and digital art creators do not want people looking over their shoulder when they work, and there is absolutely nothing untoward with that.

Imagine how you would feel if you got to a shoot only to find the photographer had invited their mate to sit in on the shoot and watch you modelling because after all "you cant be too careful these days". Would you be comfortable standing there in your swimwear? Probably not. The exact same thing applies for some people trying to concentrate on creativity without feeling the gazing eyes of some random sitting in on the shoot.

If you want a chaperone there for your peace of mind, that is totally fine and your wishes should be respected but please do not lecture those who do not allow spectators, that is naive and not just a little bit insulting.
