Depends entirely on the context!!!

At every wedding and family portrait session I've worked at, there's been someone under 18...

Are you implying that the photographers are doing something illegal by shooting under 18's?

Really, this just sounds like an intentionally inflammatory opening post in an attempt to get some popcorn.

When making such statements as yours, you really need to be more specific as to what is going on or what is alleged to be going on!

If not, you're just spreading hear'say...

#13 of Purestorm's T&Cs (http://www.purestorm.com/terms.aspx) says the site is not for under 18s. If the model is a member of this site she must have fibbed on her application. If she's not a member of the site, then it's perfectly legal unless you can provide a more damning context.

What she said. Probably photographers working in every High Street photography studio in the land shoot under-18s, so how could a site like this possibly object to such people being members.

There are lots of excellent under 18 fashion models on Model Mayhem and Net-Mode. One good example is : http://www.modelmayhem.com/portfolio/1641653/viewall



I expect quite of few fashion photographers would be keen to shoot these models:

There was a post recently where it was said that you cannot have under 18s on your PF.

That was River who was told she needed some over 18 models on her portfolio to qualify for a photographer account.

Oh bugger me. Am I in serious trouble, or what? The model was - wait for it (gasp!!!) - sixteen when this picture was taken. Shock! Horror! Should I be thrown off the site? Or tied to the stake and burned?

Purestorm policy is that applicants must be over-18 to be accepted for Purestorm membership.
Photographer registrants should not upload images of under-18s to their submission.
The occasional parent & child image is acceptable on an accepted member's portfolio.
Uploading of inappropriate images of under-18s to a portfolio is a Suspension offence.


Special exceptions have been made in the past to allow professional child models (i.e. LEA-approved) to be featured in member's portfolios.
