Ah so what you should be asking is, "what can an experienced model get from a shoot with me?" Presumably an experienced model has some nice shots already, as she is a decent model and probably gets emails all the time, and has to be free on Mondays. Sounds tricky! I don't really understand why having your car stolen means that you can't shoot while she's around?HolmaxThanks for that Jen, I can assure you I am normal , Well normal'ish! I never have a problem with paid shoot castings, it's more when I'm looking for tf that I seem to get a poor response. I'm not one of those who goes looking for 'fresh meat' and much prefer to work with models with a bit of experience. I'm going to have to have a big cull. I think sometimes it's hard deciding what are my strongest images so I'll have a good study. I think sometimes my casting calls come across as sounding very serious and it's not going to be a fun shoot, would you agree, or do they sound okay? I can see why only being able to shoot Mondays is a problem also. To cut a long story short, I'm stuck to Monday daytimes due to the Russian mafia! Unbelievable I know. I sold a car a while back and this guy came up from London to buy it. Basically he wasn't who he said he was and turned out to be part of a multi million pound car theft ring. My wife was pregnant at the time, and with me being in a wheelchair I wouldn't have been able to defend us if it had gone pear shaped in the house. As a result of it, my wife said she doesn't mind me shooting with strangers so long as she isn't in the house at the time, which I don't blame her for. She works Monday's, Wednesday's and Friday's, but Wednesday I have a gardener and cleaner at my house and Fridays my parents come to look after my son, which could prove embarrassing if a model is wandering about in next to nothing! I guess I've just answered my own question!
I don't really understand why having your car stolen means that you can't shoot while she's around? Jen, I think it was the invasion of privacy that freaked her out. I think it's the thought of what could have happened, as he was in our house. To be honest I don't blame her and I guess I'm lucky in that she still allows me to shoot from home.Posted 5 May 2012
If you're looking for a photographer...HolmaxI'm going to get that self portrait changed I think Suzy, on reflection it does make me look kind of scary, and I'm not, honestly! I just need some kind of miracle now to make me look half presentable.
