I was contacted by a friend on facebook who i added and have never met. He mentioned could i go to Cardiff (from cornwall) to audition. This work would be paid of £1500 per day and travelling and stay expenses all covered if im a successful candidate. This would entail publications in such magazines as playboy, GQ, nuts, zoo and many others. He said this "The audition is very straight forward. I'll meet you from the train and we simply take a variety of shots in my car to use as audition photos. It'll only take an hour of your time at the very most".

Is this a electric_neon is a naughty person and should i trust this photographer?

Now let's see... You're being asked to go to Cardiff to meet up with a guy you know nothing about, then he will take pictures of you in his car. Yeah, sure!

I have to be honest, if you could even consider that this is not a scam, for your own safety, I suggest you quit modelling and get off the internet immediately.

If the guy sent you a picture with a sign balanced on his knob, saying "avoid me, I'm a scammer", it would probably be less obviously a scam.

I tend to be a modest man, but then I do have a lot to be modest about.

if you where actually auditioning you would go to a studio of some description

from the slithery snake "Do you have any idea about this industry??? Your more than welcome to hire out our studio for your audition shoot, at a cost of £850 for half a day. I was simply trying to save you money. Don't forget, you contacted me, not the other way around."

When you are dead, you do not know that you are dead. All of your pain is felt by others. The same thing happens when you are stupid.

this is the lengths he went to:
Yes, I'm going to say something. You weren't belligerent, you were just rude! You threw verbal assaults at me without any grounding or justification. I suggest you take a long hard look at your attitude burgers continuing in this profession, and maybe ask all the necessary questions next time before insulting someone. This is a fantastic opportunity which, unfortunately for you, is now no longer open to you. Thank you for your time and goodbye.
*if your, not burgers.
