Glad I wasn't one of the photographers applying for a certain casting call which has appeared. Apparently it's the second casting call the model's posted in a couple of days, over 50 replies received and NONE of the applicants was good enough!

I though the travel to Fantasy World was the problem - take too long to get there.

Call me sceptical but there is a chance that 50 photographers who may apply just won't be good enough! Maybe for once the model has got her head screwed on properly instead of settling for pictures of little value like many do.
Whether she should be using the castings and whether her terms are attractive enough to find what she is looking for is another thing but to be honest, its none of our business unless she asks for help
If you have to ask why I do it, you will never understand the reason why

Me thinks she may have to put her hand in her pocket to get what she thinks she wants.

But even then her expectations might be too high so I'd be very wary.

I think you'd better grow up a little Kiboko, being snidey about a rejection to a casting hardly makes you look especially reasonable does it?

We all aren't good enough sometimes, on this occasion, you weren't. Get better or ignore, or shush, just don't whine about it.

Well I have applied for the second casting, if she says no then she wont be the first and wont be the last. The only way we get better is by being critiqued!

I have applied if only for the honour of joining a list..... but good for her . She looks a good model so should be picky, OK her casting lacks a bit of Xmas spirit but ho ho ho....

Maybe you should read posts properly before having a dig at people. He clearly says in his opening sentence he's glad he wasn't one of those photographers who'd applied to that casting call.

To be fair - he hadn't applied!

I don't have a problem with her being selective - but there are ways of responding to applications without announcing that no-one is good enough for her! It may of course be that those who have not applied feel much the same way!
