Really? I'd have thought that 40 positive recommendations going back eight years, including from a few of the best models to have graced this site over the last decade, would more than compensate for only having a handful portfolio images on display (unless, of course, one was actively seeking payment from models for professional photography packages).

Good point, well put

I've never found looking like Brad Pitt to be an issue on shoots..... mainly because I look nothing like him.

the only thing that matters to me is how good they are at taking pictures

I'm not sure why the photographer's looks should matter to a model, but I have noticed that on the occasions I've seen models talking about photographers who contacted them that they didn't want to work with, they would slag off the looks of the tog as well as their work in a 'they're creepy' way if said togs were 'old' (basically over 50) and/or fat. E.G., 'I had a look at the guy's pics, they're crap so I'm not gonna work with him, and he's a fat old man anyway lol' type talk.

But how would those models know how old the photographers are and what they look like if they've not worked with them? I've never once been asked my age or to provide a photo of myself when booking shoots here or elsewhere.

It's Facebook where I've seen such remarks made, and people tend to have at least one or two pics of themselves on there, even if it's not their personal page.

Uh huh. If you heard the amount of models I've heard say "so glad you don't look like all the other old fat photographers" cos, you know, I dont.


I was hoping the models did not notice how old and fat I am!!! Cos, you know, I am.

Ah, I see. I'm not on there or any other social media sites so that never occurred to me.

I would respectfully suggest, from the viewpoint of most young models. 95 per cent of photographers on these sites are "old and fat!"

You are the lucky one. Best not to be on any of them so you cannot see what they are saying about you! frown

I'm short fat and ugly, although I do have a knack of making models laugh.

Well I accidentally (honestly!) picked up a pair of my wife's size 12  jeans the other day - and apart from the length they were fine - so I guess I'm in the 5%! 
(I'm ignoring the "old"  )
