Ok time to rant;

Latest Casting:

"I have been asked to do a shoot for a 13 year old's birthday on November 28th. They have requested a make up artist as well.

It will be for 10 girls of that age, just simple make up nothing fancy or seductive, just something the girls will enjoy having done.

The shoot will be done in Brentwood, Essex at roughly 4pm for a couple of hours. Once make up is done the MUA is welcome to stay and watch and chat or can go, their choice.

This shoot would suit someone local as for payment I will cover travelling costs + £15 on top for doing it, along with a copy of the images afterwards for portfolio use on a CD.
"

Is this a joke?

Lets do the maths at least £10 per person in product usage 10 x 10 = £100

Photographer will pay £15 + local travel expenses and a cd of 13 year old girls having fun in the studio....

How much will he be charging each girl, how much will he make on prints lets say an average of £50 per girl 50 x 10 = £500 and he can only afford £15 towards his mua, this site is disgusting after I read this I receive an email asking me to work on a BBC TV series for the ****good exposure****.. so now the BBC are not paying their artists, I think not.

This leads me to this:

The castings still make me laugh, someone asking for TFCD when it's blatantly paid work for magazine and paying website submissions, come people we are not idiots !! emoticon
