I'd just focus on the worthwhile ones and quietly ignore the rest. That's what I do with photographers and that's why I always have a smile on my face and a healthy ticker.

Constructive comments: Yes, real models exist. And the really good ones have typically earned the right to charge. Some do, some don't. As for 'improving portfolios' - that depends on if they deem your work to be better than they have already. It's all a bit subjective, the latter part anyways

Yes, they do exist, and one of the best seems to be back in the fold

Almost two years! It's nice to be back

Quote from joroda777
~ who are real, not bored brats with a mobile phone,
~ who check their emails and respond to them - even if it is just to say thanks, but no thanks.
~ who request rates that are on a par with their experience level. Beginner does not equate to £ 90 an hour for glamour shoot!!
~ who actually communicate in english not text speak,
~ who want to really improve their portfolios and not just their bank balance.

I could go on but  I do not think that my blood pressure can go any higher. So constructive comments please.



Do any photographers exist who;
- aren't bored middle aged men with a lensbaby
- don't respond to emails without making sexual innuendos
- pay models fairly for getting their tits out for the photographers personal pleasure
- genuinely like photography and want to improve their portfolio, not just hang out with young naked chicks
- aren't IT managers with a middle aged spread and no hair

If you can find some please let me know.

Damn, got me with that last point,
although to be fair I haven't had any hair long before the spread set in

Hey that's me you are talking about! I am feeling hurt and insulted!

But I am not an IT manager and I have a few hairs left. Otherwise I would be suing you for libel!!!

As in life, so in a game of hazard, skill will make something of the worst of throws.

Quote from RattusRock
... just another rant from a photographer with not much to offer that wants everything for free



Not necessarily directed at the OP, but I feel this observation may be one of the reasons we see so many whining, model bashing threads.

I am not an IT manager, have hair and don't have midde aged spread - but even as a joke I am not sure it would matter if I did!


And I don't ask models to "get their tits out" - even for my personal pleasure.
Amateur - happy to do TF with models with potential and enthusiasm. Website: www.mphodson.co.uk
