Quote from PaulManuell
What's the etiquette on sending a follow up email after they've opened but not replied to the first, asking again if they'd be interested in a shoot?



If I get no reply, and I remain interested, I send a follow up email after a while and repeatedly do so until either I get a reply or they cancel their membership or they block me. (The last of these has never occurred; the first has happened and has led to one or more productive shoots.)

If they ask me to no longer contact then, then of course I'll stop.

I regard my message to the model as unsolicted email (though a permissable and legitimate kind) and naturally it is their perogative to reply or not.


I've never answered a model's casting call, but if I did, I would regard my reply equally as an unsolicted communication, for them to respond to or ignore as they see fit.

I'd never go to that extent to get a reply, I'd be concerned I'd be viewed as a pest. I've sent a follow up email to the model that I started this thread about, but won't be sending any more if that's not replied to.

I've never answered one either, but if I did I certainly wouldn't regard my email as unsolicited; the model is, after all, inviting replies to her call.
