That might work for you but if I offered the same shoot to four models and then told three of them that they were then too slow to reply they'd rightly be JadedRed is a naughty person ed off with me.



That would be their problem. If i have a job i cant promise it to everyone who replies, just not possible, i dont see why a mail should be any different. But then maybe its just because i dont want photographers getting angry with me because i wasn't on call 24/7 and they didn't bother to book anyone else so its my fault they dont have a model.

I think a simple no thanks is better then nothing at all. I have always tried to reply to everyone who contacts me.



I think just typing "no thanks" completely kills all chances of working together in the future. I'd consider that more rude than not getting a response, but I don't apply to castings anyway... so feel free to ignore me.
My name is "Lynn" or you can call me "Lynnie". Do NOT spell my name "Lynne" or I will smack you.

not sure if its the same thing Red

I advertised a job in the jobcenter and had over 450 replies
I was then informed by the jobcenter that I'm now obliged to reply to every applicant


(but that could just be the jobcenter being anal for all  I know)

But you aren't obliged to give all of them the job are you? Most likely you will reply 'this position has been filled' like i said before.

That sounds JadedRed is a naughty person stupid though, i figure if they are on the dole then maybe they want you to get back so that the jobcentre can confirm they are looking for work, but if they aren't? I dont know, stupid.

I have seen this subject come up before and the answer according to some photographers is: A) models get about five replies to a casting so it only takes 5 minutes to reply to them all. B) Photographers get about 1,000,000 replies to a TF* casting and 10,000,000 replies to a paid casting.



to be fair thought to my paid casting which i chose Iveta i had about 50 models contact me and mabee only 5 of them where what i had asked for in the casting but i still messaged them all and told them why
pissing purestorm off since 2009

Sounds like SerenDigital is a naughty person .  I applied for loads of jobs through the job centre (ones they told me I HAD to apply to otherwise they would stop my benefits) and I never got a reply from any of them.

That's above and beyond the call of duty. 

I would have simply said the casting was filled. If any were of interest for a future occasion of course I would have taken the chance to tell them so.
