Simple question, is it ok to include photographs that don't feature models in your portfolio? I've seen some on other members profiles but wanted to check.


Comment : The first line of the Image Upload Page states in large bold letters

Add your modelling or model-related images here

Occasional images of locations, or possibly to illustrate a forum post, are acceptable if they are model-related.
Hire Studio portfolios should include images of sets, facilities and equipment rather than models.
My name is "Lynn" or you can call me "Lynnie". Do NOT spell my name "Lynne" or I will smack you.

You can include whatever you like (within the rules) but as this is mainly a model site that is usually what is needed.

Why would you want to?

How would they benefit you on a model site?

Shop window to another non model photography business or in my case, a single slot used to upload my other pictures to forum threads on occasion
If you have to ask why I do it, you will never understand the reason why

You may want to illustrate locations you have access to
You may want to show clothes/props you have
You may want to a photo to illustrate a problem (eg. technical photography question)
You may want a self-portrait
When you are dead, you do not know that you are dead. All of your pain is felt by others. The same thing happens when you are stupid.
