...I am so annoyed and sad!

Sat here in the studio twiddling my thumbs. Let down by one model for this slot yesterday , put up a last minute casting, arranged a replacement model , who has then no-showed!
How annoying is that??

Then I have another shoot booked this afternoon and not heard a peep from the model for a good while, and she's not responding to messages! So that's gonna be a no-show too, I reckon! Hope she proves me wrong...but I am not getting my hopes up!

Could be out having fun in the sun with the kids, or something.

Possibly what the "model" thought?

TF casting on a weekend is unlikley to appeal to the professional models - and the newbies are most likely to get a paid shoot offer at a weekend or decide after arranging they would rather go out with their mates. Add in good weather and you are possibly heading for a fall
If you have to ask why I do it, you will never understand the reason why

Yeah, possibly. Shame that we were in conversation until 11 last night, and then nothing since then. She responded to a casting as well, and at that point said she'd LOVE to work with me...

Crap, innit?

I thought of that, but the wife and kids have gone out now...

Ah well, tidy the studio and wait for my customer (who will show up as I have heard from her this morning) and then see if my afternoon model is a no-show!

maybe she just hasnt logged on today?

11 last night isn't long ago, she might be showering, doing hair/make up, packing etc... believe it or not but models dont just sit around all the time twiddling there thumbs waiting for photographers to message, a lot can go into getting ready before a shoot

also its only 11, the shoot isnt until the afternoon then she might be out or having a lie in with her free time on the weekend

The shoot for this afternoon is a completely different model who hasn't responded to messages for the last week to try to confirm the shoot. She may yet show up, who knows, but it might have been nice for her to send a reply to the several messages just saying "yeah, it's ok...see you then" or "No, sorry, something came up". But not a dickie-bird!

And yes, I do know of photographers who are as bad...this is not a model-bashing, just me saying I am sad because I could have done something else.

And I was only twiddling my thumbs because, believe it or not, I had turned up to my studio early, got everything set up ready, got the kettle filled and ready, bought the milk, checked camera and batteries, lenses and lights, and sorted a few of the props I was going to use. Only started twiddling my thumbs after the model no-showed.

...And there we go...just got word, 2 hours before the start time that the afternoon model has cancelled too. Only now, despite several messages throughout the last week to try to confirm the shoot.
