So...
I had about a year off as I was pregnant and now my gorgeous son is 3 months old and I'm wanting to get back into the swing of things... However I've put out a few casting calls recently and haven't had any interest at all ??
Has paid work for models dried up, am I too old now ? Are photographers thinking my post preggo body won't be up to much ???

Perhaps do a tfp shoot and update your profile so photographers can see how you are looking now

Hey Zoe, don't take it to heart; things have got VERY quiet around here in the last year. Its a combination of several factors I think; 1. Much of the traffic has gone to other sites (the dark side that shall not be named) 2. Photographers, on the whole, are earning ever less money from images, so the budgets they have are lower (yes, I know, there will always be some lucky buggers who claim to be doing very well. But I'm talking about an undeniable general trend towards less money being in the photography game) 3. Every day that goes by brings more models to an already saturated market So don't despair. Keep trying if you really want to get back into it. I'd totally book you, but I realised about six months ago that the photographic/visual industry as a whole has no monetary future, so now I just do it for fun - but that means I have even less to spend than I did before.

Good idea... I'll do a TF shoot when I have time! Tricky doing something unpaid when I got a newborn tho!! X

I think the only thing that would put me off is that the last updated image was posted in January of this year. Hard to tell what a model looks like from older photos

Yes the site is quieter now but very few people are going to take a chance given the pregnancy. Doesn't need to be a tf shoot just get some doc shots done with a phone or compact. Having been burnt in the past I wouldnt take a models word for it on a post pregnancy figure.
