Dear All

I have not seen a sign to say over 18 , or minors not allowed.

The reason , as I have completed a few photos of a baby and am rather pleased with them .  The family have been pleased  with a few I already sent on and would like to share a few on here.Though it seems unless the model is over 18 the images have no merit., or interest.
Just needing clarification 

Kind regards

Paul

Why - is this facebook or something?
This site is primarily for discussing model-shoots - for the same reason you'll not find me posting my weddings, portraits, sports, news or landscape work here...

Dear Rob Knight . I have asked a question . your attitude is not required.
I do not have an account with Facebook or anything else .

I believe this site is for camera owners and models . I own a camera , the baby was asked to be photographed by the parents with a view to offering them to a Model agency . .

This is an 18 plus site, so photos of babies or young children are not a good idea.

We provide free portfolio hosting for the modeling and photographic industry

is the title when opening this site.

I don't see before entering or logging in the requirement to be over the age of 18.

Without falling out with anyone here , can some say if I can post a couple of images of a baby with the parents
permission .Fashion and typical baby images.

You will get loads of opinions here but only the moderators can advise. If you are asking the parents permission, you better direct them to your portfolio page to make sure they are also happy with the context their baby will be shown in
If you have to ask why I do it, you will never understand the reason why

I have sent a request to the moderators to answer my enquiry, or post.
The mother has yet to be supplied with the images though I have sent a couple of small J-pegs which has received a
positive response .

Telling you something you didn't want to hear isn't 'attitude' - it's just not what you wanted to hear...

Put what you like in your portfolio - it's your portfolio, but as others have said, I'm sure the parents will be delighted. Take the images to an agency by all means, but an internet model-forum isn't that place.
