Why do some photographers write in their bio 'please feel free to contact me regarding rates and availability' and then never respond to your message when you do?
It really gets my goat.......can hardly call themselves professional when they cant be assed to respond.
Sorry, rant over!!

For the same reason models don't read CC's properly, don't reply to emails, don't read what you've written, don't...

I could go on, but my point is, it's not photographers. It's people.
Modesty is just arrogance in stealth mode

What does this have to do with ignorance?

I imagine they mean their rates and availability, not yours

Not responding probably due to you giving them your rates

If you contacted them with YOUR rates & availability, when they may have meant in their bio, you could contact them for THEIR rates & availability should you want to pay them to shoot you. Most "professional" photographers only shoot if someone is paying them.

QED they would treat your unsolicited approach as spam & ignore it.

No its ME asking them for THEIR rates and availability! I would understand if it was the other way round.
What does this have to do with ignorance? Well, opening a message to someone asking you a question, and blatantly ignoring it, is ignorance. Especially if they say 'please message me for more info/rates/availability'.

Hi Jodie, not much you can do. Not everyone replies to messages. I would say we all get it.

Find another person suitable .

Two definitions:

1. Ignorant: to be unaware of something---to not have knowledge on a certain topic---to fear or misunderstand something one knows little or nothing about.

2. Ignorant: To be rude, tactless, or purposely obtuse

I was actually talking about the number two type. I have come on here asking why some photographers choose to IGNORE messages from potential clients, I have not asked for an english lesson thanks. Please, if you cant answer the question with anything then please dont answer at all. Its so obvious you are trying to make others look silly.

Thanks
