Been here 6months. Had loads of models ignore me.
Just now I got a prompt reply (within 15mins) saying just two words NO THANKS.
I'm impressed! OK a bit loud, terse and negative but at least I got something emoticon

I could be wrong, but I suspect he was being rejected for TFP shoots. Offering models paid employment usually gets a far more positive response. emoticon

Yes you're probably right, although I often get requests for TFP and I still reply and am still polite!

Simon - I am not totally convinced by your "non scary" avatar - it does look a bit like a scout master checking the weather outside the scout hut.

If you want to get a more positive response from TFP enquiries then perhaps you need some examples in your portfolio of the type of shoots you are claim to shoot - swimwear, lingerie, glamour, topless, gothic, art nude etc. Alternatively, try hiring a model - with the credit crunch there are some very good offers available, or book an hour on a studio day.

Fair point on TFP. The model had no experience, and was open to TFP, so that is what I offered. I've done TFP and paid shoots. I certainly get more repeat work if I pay! I'm not fussed I got turned down I wont miss her. I've already done 3 shoots this week, and 4 models waiting for next week and beyond! @tarmoo, very good points about getting examples of work on my portfolio. I guess I'm limited by number of photos. And hiring is indeed possible. I've just had two offers since this thread began an hour ago! As for my avatar, it was a quick change from one where I was sticking my tongue out. I didn't mean it to get in the way of the main topic. I was once a scout master! That probably makes me more respected in some eyes
