"So first of all I should see photographer's works I decide only when I see if photographer can do smth and not just practice on me I am interested in very good quality and interesting content of my pictures or in very good money amount .Whole day my work cost 500£ ,one hour 85£. I accept only interesting shoots when I see sence of them it means I wont open my legs and pose for home porn pictures or stay in funny background If I see its rubbish"
 
Ever hopeful I suppose, particularly with 6 pics on her page, the quality of which you decide. Apparently she does Adult..but no open leg?

Does anyone check the profiles before they go on line because I thought there was a submission process? I assumed, probably incorrectly, that the body of the text may also be checked for accuracy and understanding of levels.

But anybody interested in shooting with a lady from another planet may wish to contact her...I doubt she will be too busy with photoshoots to reply! Oh yes, she brings her "agent" to the shoot as well, so you will have company

Is it just me? I find it a bit sad that peoples portfolios are put up for public ridicule. Let the market decide and be decent about it.

I read that last sentence to read she wont do it IF its home porn or the backgrounds funny or rubbish. That leaves everything else as ok?

People may [or may not] get more work if their portfolio notes are beautifully written but its up to them how they portray themselves.

If this is a cut and paste from the persons portfolio, it should be possible to "out" the model making it even worse.

Maybe threads like this should be outlawed?

So..... rather than just pass the model by because she didn't measure up to you exacting standards, you decided to shame her in public. You really are an insidious little creep.

Yet another "lets have a go at the models" thread? Aren't we all just a little fed up with them by now? Is this really all because some model didn't appreciate your Hasselblad?

This sort of post is just going to discourage models from being honest on their profile, but hey that presumably is what the op is looking for, another excuse to moan that a model wouldn't work for him on his terms.

...."You really are an insidious little creep"

You say it like you assume it is, because we know each other so well? Name calling is easy and for the ignorant and ill informed, which you clearly are?

As for another totally ill informed post, I don't have a Hasselblad (!) and even if I did, if you knew anything about them you would know you could pick one up for the price of a used DSLR..!

I am glad you all see £500day/£85hr and an offensive dismissive text as so attractive a proposition..why don't you all book her?

We didn't say that - but I am sure some people have paid that before for commercial adult work and we only have your word as to how suitable / unsuitable the model is.

This sounds awfully like unsolicited critique - I will leave it to the moderators to decide but there was a time when the site took a stance against ripping in to new models and I for one would like to see that stance beefed up. We need a diversity of models or the site will die.

I find it incredible that you don't realise how many models are leaving this site and posts like this are just going to accelerate that. I'd be surprised if any models even bother to join in this thread as the forums seem to be nothing but whining about how bloody awful they are, mainly by no hope photographers who have nothing of any value to offer back anyway

I think you're missing the point. Her rates won't attract any work but you just come across as bitter, wanting everyone to ridicule her on a forum. It's so off putting that models are never written about in a positive light.

Every time I see threads like these, I question my own membership here. It's embarassing to be associated with a site containing such negative views on models, even though it's the tiniest fraction of members expressing them.

In short ...


STOP

SLAGGING

MODELS

OFF.


They're kind of a central part in model photography, at least for some of us.

I read her profile as a lady who's first language isn't English (an assumption), has experience, but is afraid of being bombarded with GWC types looking for a baps and flaps shots. She picky, she's expensive, but she is old enough to make her own choices. I wouldn't dismiss her because of her profile, but I'm unlikely to pay those sort of rates. But I don't see why she has to be singled out and held up for ridicule.

Just as a point of order, there are at least a dozen or more models on here whom I and several other photographers would pay that sort of rate to.

I dont know who this particular model is, but if she is capable of walking the walk as well as talking the talk, I rather like what she has written...apart from the "agent" part.

Anyone copying and pasting that into Google can see that it's the profile of a new model who joined yesterday.
What a nice welcome to such a friendly community.

Why are you so bothered about how she chooses to promote herself, or the levels she works to?


On a side note a budding new model friend of mine joined this site less than two weeks ago.
She has now closed her account.  Can anyone guess why?
She isn't the first new model that has been scared away. 


Why are some people constantly looking for something to whinge about instead of out taking photographs.
Be positive.  Negativity gets you nowhere.

Yet another reason why I'm trying to downgrade my account and keep thinking of leaving this site...and sometimes modelling altogether.

The OP seems to have a previous track record of wanting to provide unsolicited critique on brand new models.

Is this behaviour really acceptable?
