It seems just recently after 7 years of modelling and over 250 good 100% positive feedbacks I can't seem to get any modelling work. I email photographers they don't reply? I cannot seem to win whatever I do. Is there something I don't know??

This 'recession' is hitting hard. Most photographers on these sites do it as a (rather expensive) hobby and in times of financial need it will be the hobby that'll go first. I for one haven't taken a single photo for five months due to time & money problems myself.
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.

There is always something you do not know, thats how life is.

As for work, have you not realised that there has been a down-turn in the economy over the last few years, and every model is getting less, and less bookings.

Even the cock with a camera is struggling (thank god).

Hi Samantha,
I seem to be in the opposite? Since I was made redundant, I have been getting asked to undertake many shoots. But as I have don't have any permanent work, I am unable to book models and have had to turn away potential shoots. I think its down to the lack of money available. So lots of models who are normally working are struggling to find work. Its not anuything wrong with you or lots of other models facing the same delema.
I hope you find work soon
Regards
Norman
Each photograph I take gives me the thrill of acheiving something great, (not there yet, but i'm working on.

Do you mean models have offered to pay you - or asked you to pay them?

Amateur - happy to do TF with models with potential and enthusiasm. Website: www.mphodson.co.uk

I seem to recall some saying along the lines of  pots & kettles about this sort of thing.

Yes I have realized. I've not been under a rock for the last 5 years, I was more thinking about companies and websites, there are many that my close modelling friends work for but when I contact them I get either no response or a no? And 2 days later they have a references off several models, just when they have told me they are not booking at the moment.

Not that you're my normal shoot type, but I don't think I'd noticed your port before, and maybe that doesn't help; your public profile being a little weak here perhaps?
Hope that didn't sound at all snotty, just that you might need to get out there a bit to promote yourself?

Well you've got the looks and the modelling ability, so I can only assume it's the time of year but it's a little rude that people don't reply and tell you.

Keep your chin up.

Most of my work is fetish/adult paysite stuff and I always find November/December very busy as everyone wants to get stuff in the can so they can have a nice rest/worry about taxes in January. Maybe try people again as there may be some spots to fill. X
