cud it be suggested that it would be better if there was a selection on the casting call that allows users to scan castings that are aimed at: male models, female models, mua's, photogs etc.

im a male model and im put of using your site simply because out of all the model sites i use, this one is one of the only ones that does not have this feature. theres only ever female castings, mainly nude which i feel also gives the website a bit of a bad rep.

with the above selection on castings, it would appeal to every user and worker ni the model industry n not just girls and girl obsessed photogs

Purestorm is mainly nude work...i do recall hearing it be nicknamed pureporn once...and when I click on view all casting calls it only comes up with castings for models, I think I set some preferences up but can't remember how...

I guess that male models are not very well served by purestorm. Maybe it would be useful if you could stipulate in castings whether a male or femaie was required.
You can already filter castings to see only models or photographers or MUA by location if you want to.

If you think the website is not for you don't join. Presumably if it has a bad rep you wouldn't want to be a member...... slagging off the client community is not normally a good way to get work.

lol i wouldnt mind but i do a lot of nude work myself!

im not slagging it off to get work, clearly, i joined purestorm years ago and got a fair bit of work n the beginning, then i noticed it get worse and worse for sexism in the sense that male models slowly got made outcast on this website. by all means i dont use this site anymore, i dont see the point, i prefer modelmayhem snce you can state in casting calls 'show castings aimed at male models within a postcode radius' and various other things which i feel is fair and much more user friendly.

again, im not slagging this site off against that one, the point mi trying to get accross is that it is a SHAME that this website has ended up the way it is.

just seems such a simple edit on the casting call section to solve all this :S so i dont see why not

A quick scan will give you all the info you need. The people, like myself, who photograph male models pretty much always specify "male" in the heading. You can even open up the casting calls page for models and then just type ctrl+F and search for "male".
