I'd just like to ask a question about whether it's normal to allow a photographer or videographer to touch you while making a video? I was asked to make a video and when I asked what kind he said one where he would touch me. He said it's normal for this type of think but when I said no way he then said he can provide references from other models who he has done this to. I haven't been in England long but have modelled for some years and never been asked to do the type of thing he wanted.

If you don't want him to touch you or you have even the slightest doubts about him touching you, then no. Not normal. Not at all. If he sent you the message via Purestorm, report it to the moderators and they will deal with it.

Depending on where he asked to touch you (although I would say anywhere is inappropriate), it's a style called "gonzo", which is not allowed on this site.

What type of video is it?
I'm not sure on adult things but I wouldn't let the photographer touch me.

Anything that you are not comfortable with is not acceptable. It matters not one bit that he may have 'touched' models in previous videos, if you are not happy for him to do it with you, then it's a big no.

Some photographers have a reputation for pushing models level which, in my humble opinion, is completely unprofessional and unacceptable, but it happens. If you are getting bad vibes then I would suggest you stay clear.

I wouldn't think it's normal for adult work either. Open leg seems pretty straightforward, no assistance needed and the OP's highest level is nude anyway.

Nope it is not normal. Shooting on video is no excuse and using references from other girls shouldn't sway your own decision.

Seen plenty of images which suggest otherwise from photographers who source their models via purestorm, but then I presume the shoot details were completed via e-mail.

Some really "classy" images... from no doubt upstanding gentlemen.

Which reminds me I really need to get myself a shutter release cable
