xVicky_Dx - "Plus a fact i had a shoot on saturday, my mum was with me.... my car decided to over heat and smoke poured out of the engine i didnt have a clue what i had to do. If i was on my own i would have just stopped there in the middle of colchester and cried. Lucky enough my mum knew exactly what to do" So does the RAC but I wouldnt want you to bring them either!!

to be fair Jes my head gaskett blew if it was a simple overheat then yea its not hard to know what to do... I have degree's in many things mechanics not being one of them

Naivity does not come into it, its just a matter of opinion which you will find is probably split 50-50. Some agree some dont.

Fair enough, point taken..no offence meant!  I'd love to know how your mum fixed a head gaskett.  She's like Supermum!  You could hire her out as a chaperone to others, lol!

xVicky_Dx - Im only teasing you although would be handy to have a mum that could do that - Its one of the things you have to learn to work in this industry - one is have a reliable car and two have breakdown cover. If you cant get to a shoot, then you're not going to get paid for it and also get a bad name quickly.
Always have the clients details to keep them informed and always do your utmost to get to the shoot - no one will bad mouth you for trying

~Anyway Im going of the thread now, but a chaperone isnt the ideal answer for 99% of things that can happen during any part of a shoot

Oh Noes. I had a plumber come around the house today and I was all on my own in the house with him.

Poor lad.  I bet he didn't know what hit him

I have worked with a model who brought her boyfriend along, he was a nice chap and stayed in the car during the location shoot. I didn't have a problem with this but having read some other togs experiences i think i won't risk it again!

from reading some of these posts i reckon the only thing left to do is to go around in groups of three or more people from now on!! the world just doesn't seem safe anymore!!! 

I'm scared!

I think that there is a slight difference between the checkout at Tescos, and a young model in her underwear, on her own with just a tog in a studio.

I hav no problems whatsoever with chaperones.
