 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! 


That's just t'internet mirroring the real world for once; a world where for every successful applicant interviewed scores or even hundreds don't make it past the first hurdle.

What surprises me is that the model concerned only had fifty offers of TF from guys pitching beyond their skills level.

Lol...Its not about whether your photographic skills are good enough, its about whether you are good enough to pay or not...offer her enough and you'll be good enough, I'm pretty sure about that..
I tend to be a modest man, but then I do have a lot to be modest about.

I saw that casting, was amusing. But mostly because I am (constantly) suprised at how people don't realize how they portray themselves.

Even if i was awesome enough to apply, I wouldn't, the CC just shows someone I wouldn't want to spend time with. Not to mention the fact her port was hardly "all that".

Perhaps it was a language thing, though, who knows. She isn't English.
Modesty is just arrogance in stealth mode

I love these forums
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.

Ah right, might mistake sorry.

Mind you, complaining about it and it having no relevance to you is still whining.

Exactly. Just as you were whining about the OP's post, a post which had no relevance to you.

A Silver member hardly needs to put up a casting looking for cash and trying to pretend its a TFP.

I actually think she wants exactly what she cast for. I would lay money that most of the applicants were a mixture of chancers and GWC's and a few that maybe could take a half decent picture. Not what she wants at all.

It is pretty obvious she is looking for a top quality photographer to help get her somewhere - the sort with a great pedigree of published work and those don't bother scouring the TFP requests on the castings.
If you have to ask why I do it, you will never understand the reason why
