In these cases, it is best the model reports it to the moderators. Unfortunately, they can find even this traumatic and would rather everything just went away. They are feeling pretty sick and put that ahead of thinking about safeguarding any future models.

I can assure you these cases happen and it takes a huge amount of effort for the model to report it. Their world has just come down around their ears and they then have to face assembling all the evidence with the other party deciding to counter claim to save their hides.

The one case I directly came across, fortunately the idiot had tried to bribe the model for her silence and had admitted his guilt in an email so when the model calmed down, she got angry and reported him and it was pretty straightforward.

These people dont usually make these mistakes - they take conversations off line and its all pre-meditated. Once the model realises they have been taken advantage of, they also realise the trouble they will face proving it

I think we need to understand that without the courage of the women in the original post this guy would still be out there doing it to others

And with respect to Jake41 these things are better dealt with behind the scenes with mods / police rather than in an open forum where this guy may read it and be getting his excuses in place

Messages dont run out when you reply to a previous one. It was a lie to get you to converse off line. You shouldnt give someone your private email unless you wish to exchange images and trust the person
If you have to ask why I do it, you will never understand the reason why

Report him though MM may not act as quickly as it should.  A lesson to be learnt don't give out email addresses.  This is a matter you and MM should deal with.  Though it is hard to tell who are the sleaze bags.

I suggest you contact some very experienced models in your area to get some feedback on who is safe to shoot with. In your case I would suggest you contact fizzy.

Quote from Sarge


I have never once spoken to a guy who has said 'i want to become a golfer so i can see ladies in their underwear'.
I have never met a lady who says 'i must go and change into my underwear, the washer repair mans coming in a bit'.
Where as i have heard the expression 'guy with camera', i have never heard the one 'guy with mower', to describe some perv.

Of course not all photographers are pervs, the same as not all golfers are, but being a photographer (whether pro or GWC) does open doors for you and make it easier if you wish to photograph women in the nude or if you are indeed a perv.
Photographers arent being singled out so no need to be defensive (not you personally), its just easier for 'so called' photographers with other motives to put them into action.



I discovered a pair of thong draped over a keyboard belonging to a lady boss who asked me to fix her computer
