I am noticing more and more photographers are not putting down the names of models on their portfolio's. I know that not all models are on this site, but it seems to be getting more and more each time I look. There are some lovely models whom I would love to contact to see if they would be interested in a shoot, only to find no name has been added? Is this a growing trend amongst photographers?

I never list models names because they are professional models (not on Purestorm - only from model agencies)
Some are personal friends over many years.

I've shot quite a few that are neither on here or other portfolio sites, and prefer to contact photographers directly for shoots, rather than be pestered for shoots.

Like others I'd try and pass on details to the model rather than to the photographer.

Probably less than 5% of the models I have worked with are on internet modelling sites.

Well, you take a model like this



and do this



It's your choice/shot/opinion/style, whatever you want to call it, but I'd prefer not to be involved in someone putting that together.

So what's your reason for not providing profile links on YOUR portfolio to the models you have worked with, thereby allowing other photographers to contact them if interested in working with them?

Bob,
Rhe only photos where the names are not mentioned are those in the fashion photographs due to the designer hiring the models and I was'nt given their names?
Every other photograph does have yhe models name?

I don't ever remember a thread from models complaining about this status. It seems to be photographers who mainly shoot newbies, adult or both who have this as a gripe and to be honest, I often feel like I am doing the model a disservice by including their details as I know they will get more bad rather than good approaches as a result

But in most cases you haven't bothered to link their Purestorm profiles and have merely given names, in one case even using their real name rather than their username or alias, so you are one of those very "photographers ... leaving off details of models" that you seem to be moaning about. The phrase Kettle / Pot / Black springs to mind here.

Not all models want to be linked to images. You can surely find most of them in the references section though (assuming they're on PS and the photographer hasn't 500 refs!!)
