More and more photographers are leaving off details of models?

I am noticing more and more photographers are not putting down the names of models on their portfolio's. I know that not all models are on this site, but it seems to be getting more and more each time I look.

There are some lovely models whom I would love to contact to see if they would be interested in a shoot, only to find no name has been added? Is this a growing trend amongst photographers?
Each photograph I take gives me the thrill of acheiving something great, (not there yet, but i'm working on.

I never list models names because they are professional models (not on Purestorm - only from model agencies)
Some are personal friends over many years.

I've shot quite a few that are neither on here or other portfolio sites, and prefer to contact photographers directly for shoots, rather than be pestered for shoots.

Like others I'd try and pass on details to the model rather than to the photographer.

Probably less than 5% of the models I have worked with are on internet modelling sites.

Well, you take a model like this



and do this



It's your choice/shot/opinion/style, whatever you want to call it, but I'd prefer not to be involved in someone putting that together.

So what's your reason for not providing profile links on YOUR portfolio to the models you have worked with, thereby allowing other photographers to contact them if interested in working with them?

I stopped doing it., granted I dont use this site much,the list is there but surely its better to look for new talent than constantly work with the same models anyway..ps lots arent on here anyway

Bob,
Rhe only photos where the names are not mentioned are those in the fashion photographs due to the designer hiring the models and I was'nt given their names?
Every other photograph does have yhe models name?
