.. Alternative minded models are usually nicer people



Urm, some of the biggest knobs I've come across while modelling have been those who label themselves as "alternative" 
Honestly thats like saying fat photographers are all nicer than slim photographers or fat photographers push themselves more creatively than thin ones. Everybody is different, some are nice some aren't so nice but I wouldn't say one of the "known" traits for being an alternative model is being more open to ideas or being a nicer person thats just rubbish!

+1
People that "subscribe" to a particular ideological / fashion trait tend to be fixed into those behaviours and see everything as others do in that group. Those that also fit in that same group will naturally feel an affinity to each other. They may view people from other groups and free thinkers as different and maybe less friendly.

That is a comfort thing rather than based on any reality.

The more "set in their ways" the group is, the more others view them as a pain in the ass or someone to be avoided or ridiculed

If you have to ask why I do it, you will never understand the reason why

Maybe.....in my limited experience alt models do give rise to different photogaphic opportunities......after all...if you aren't covered in tattoos then that is one area of difference...I know one goth model that spent all her disposable income on really exceptional garments.....it was her 'thing'...not many straight models turn up with hand made leather corsets that cost a couple of hundred pounds...and that sort of quality shows in bucket loads....
