If you worked at the check outs at tesco would you take your mothers brothers sisters aunty along to make sure all the customers didn't attack you.

I think that there is a slight difference between the checkout at Tescos, and a young model in her underwear, on her own with just a tog in a studio.

I hav no problems whatsoever with chaperones.

Starting another macarroon thread is not going to do you any favours emoticon

The "chaperone" is just as likely to be one of these "weirdos" as the photographer is.

I don't mind chaperones. Two bodies are as easy to bury as one. I like this topic almost as much as the last chaperone thread

I totally agree about the number of weirdos in the world. I personally never leave the front door without my  burly chaperone because those weirdos are everywhere - bus stops, street corners, shops etc. It's shame that you take the view that apparently ALL photographers are weirdos, therefore you need a chaperone when with them more so than you would in your normal day to day life.

But at the end of the day it is your choice of job/ hobby. If you are not comfortable doing it then don't do it. Sites like this have reference systems (that people choose to ignore) They are there for a reason and not just to butter up a photographer/ model for cheeper rastes next time, they are there to report problems etc which if used correctly would slowely erradicate the photographers/ models who are not good to work with. At the end of the day you can be attacked no matter where you are or what your doing. Just because you are working with someone nacked in there house doesn't make them any more likely to attack you. How many million people are there in the UK and out of them how many have attacked etc. Now how many of them were photographers. The press are making us all scared of each other by just printing bad news all the time. Why don't we bring in a chaperones profile section, that way we can all leave them feedback if they were a good chaperone thats fine but if they get rude and abusive then we can report them, and yes it has happened and yes i did have one steel £100 from my flat while i shot his girlfriend. Unfortunatly that £100 was her wages. And yes i do allow chaperones on my shoots unless I'm shooting in my own home. Altho there is nothing wrong with the models having somebody drop them off/ collect them.

I'll try and be constructive....

Wow...you are seriously pretty!

I cant see why you would have to take on the sort of jobs where you would feel the need for a chaperone! 

You,re based in London, you should be able to find a good commercial agent, I reckon.
