Hello all...

I just thought I'd give my two cents as a noooob here.

I have registered because I will be coming over to the UK very soon for a couple of weeks, and intend to pop over more regularly in the future. Originally from Essex, I have been living in Cologne, Germany, for the last 13 years and participate as a photographer on German websites similar to Purestorm...

So far... I like it here. I have written to a model and got a reply and also created a casting call and got replies. How pleasant! I have to say (I am not indulging in cliches here - it is a fact) German models seem to be less friendly... And if you really want to watch a flock of vultures picking apart someone that they perceive to be less talented, post something on the Facebook page of the German 'model-kartei.de'

I have seen a couple of stern messages about trolls and nutcases here... I almost look forward to meeting them... Are they as evil and destructive as their German brethren?

So - so far -

And here is a photo... just for the hell of it!

Chris

Welcome to the funny farm hope you have more luck than me, Models might reply but getting them to commit is a completely different thing. Although some have been fantastic. By the way love the pic you posted model with bag on her head.

I think so - I borrowed a few old cameras from an antique shop and took photos of them. Sadly I don't own any such cameras :-(

In Cologne you need to know someone who knows someone who has heard about another one who may have what you are looking for.

No idea how that works in UK (especially Scotland).
But since you are British you know your mates.
Good luck
