Right. I posted a thread asking advice about rates. I had no idea some other person was using same name. In no way am I unprofessional and wouldn't turn up to a shoot and I resent the implication. Just because I'm new doesn't mean I'm unreliable. Bring down her name? Again I have no idea who she is. Why should I Change my name? All photographers who have contacted me know exactly who I am. It was NOT a valid point to bring up as it's irrelevant and I was asking for help on rates. I will think twice about ever asking for help on here again. I'm not remotely embarrassed about using the name and after all this ridiculous storm in tea cup I will not change it on principle. I don't like intimidation. With regards to following links, I did and they were most helpful.



No need to change your name   If someone decides to derive their name  from a story - Then so can anybody else.

.....Rates a market rates. 

Do ask on here again - Ignore those who are up thier own arses.

Glad I don't hardly use this site anymore and feel so sorry for New people joining this site .

There is more bullying and personal attacks by various members on here [ same hardcore group ] then any other site I have been on.

The well known mouthy ones tend to pic argument nothing to do with a thread and obviously don't have a life

I would never ask advice on here for the barrage of abuse or intimidation I would receive , Why peeps cannot be nice and just simply
answer the question instead of picking a stupid argument .

Apologies to a lot of nice peeps on here but spoiled by the ignoramuses who are allowed to get away with insulting people ..

Mouthy ones , I await your abuse

Having worked with the original Artemis, ie Artemis Fauna, I think she has made a completely valid point. The names are just too similar for both to be used. It will definitely cause confusion somewhere down the line. Also I think the people on this thread who are saying that it's not important are missing the point completely. OK, it's not important to them because it doesn't concern them, but it shouldn't take a whole lot of empathy to realise that it might very well be upsetting to someone who has used the name for years. Greek myth or not, it is still a very unusual name and in my opinion it would be similar to someone using the name Zorba the Greek suddenly to find after firmly establishing that name that someone else came along who called themselves Zorba the Spaniard. Also I think that Artemis 2 should possess a little more common decency as she is new to the site and choose another name. Personally I wouldn't want to work with someone so obviously bloody minded and uncaring of the in my view completely understandable feelings of others.

On what basis do you ascribe original use of the word Artemis in a modelling alias to Artemis Fauna?

No, she didn't

She has no trademark/copyright whatever to the name.

Could not agree more!  My name is Harry but I don't have red hair and am not the brother to the future King.  I am sure anyone reading my profile would realise this!

The op's name is different in that the OP's name is just a single word where as the other is two words!  If people can’t read its hardly the OP’s fault!

Lets stop the bullying; the abuse and ridicule or this site will go the way of others in the past!

I am sure a number of us will note the attitude too........

+- duly noted

Just had a call from Greece, some woman is complaining that people on here are using her name and getting her a bad reputaion. Apparently she is the Hellenic goddess of the hunt, wild animals, wilderness, childbirth, virginity and protector of young girls. I don't think she has to worry about being confussed for someone else!
