Seen on new models' profile.

I know Purestorm has been going a long time and it's probably too late to ask for changes, but, please can we have an "Implied topless" and "Implied nude" tick box on models' profiles?  It just saves time reading their blurb before finding out that they want to hide behind hands, hats, polar bears etc.

Yup...I read that!!! One of the reasons I closed my paid account on here. These aren't models, sadly like so many on here, just looking to earn some money from those who aren't photographers!! As long as the "style" and level suits them of course (and doesn't upset their BF's?)

Their choice of course but it has become increasingly tedious to filter the wheat from the chaff (as is so apparent from the HP thumbnails that rarely change one month to the next). PS has become a mostly chaff site, which includes so many GWC's as well of course?

Is life really as depressing for you as it sounds?

Fair enough.

Perhaps the model means that when she's nude she will be suggestive.  She could get lots of replies.

Can we have extra tick boxes for hats and polar bears then?

Whilst we're at it, 'hand bras' would be worth adding too

And how about Lady Gardening Gloves as well?

For god's sake, can't you make it easier for the amazing photographers on this site to see what girls will get naked for them. *rollseyes*

Nice to see comments from like-minded photographers.  So often you just get bitchy comments.  Well done sir!

Oh my God!...you lot should really stand back and think about the way you view models sometimes! I truly despair!

i get this with male models, sometimes new models, sometimes not so new.

when i email them and say i will want to photograph you nude (them, not me) but without any of
their dangly bits showing, they scream like a little girl and run for the hills.

these are models that put nude erotic etc in their profiles, LOL LOL LOLLLLLLLLLLLLLL

so, i gave up approx. 2 years ago. i now ask for an email address via pm,
and spell it out as i want it.

i try to make it obvious to them i'm not a pervy molester of men, (the feedback here
kinda gives that away hehehe) and explain to them the concept behind the photograph if
there is something firmed up at the time. often there is not.

i do not use the term implied nude, or gardening gloves, or hand bra or anything like
that, i just tell them what i want from the model, in plain language.

i think that's the best.

however, IF ps wanted to DEFINE the term implied nude, and put a tickbox
by it, wouldn't that be the solution (i.e. they force us to read the definition
before we tick the box )

Suggestive nude is my favourite, I think there is nothing better than artful shadows or folds of cloth just teasingly hiding detail. But I would never dream of using a model unless the agreement was for nude, and payment if applicable. Frankly I do not want the model second guessing what the image is displaying, or worse still trying to censor the poses during the shoot. This goes at all levels, if you want deep cleavage or visible nipples then pay topless!
