I get loads of requests from models to shoot with them but then I pay so I suppose it puts that point to bed straightaway!



Hi Geoff

I am glad that you have so many models asking you for work that you will never look at someone and say I want to work with that person.

Good on you.  It must be so tedious to have all of these brilliant people contacting you all the time and having to break so many hearts by them knowing that they will never shoot with such a brilliant photographer.

Not trying to sound bitchy/jealous or anything, no time for that kinda stuff I'm just trying to see it for what I believe it truly is? Non habitual forum users and people in the background have a voice too ya know?


All people are welcome to answer on threads that I starts.  Especially if they are going to answer the question that I have asked.  If someone chooses to answer that is their choice.   If they do not want to then that is also their choice.  I welcome all answers to my post.  Not just those from people who post more regularly.

It does seem to me if you wanna get by on this site, it helps to create some kind of presence (be it good or bad) for yourself on these forums...regardless of the pictures you either take, or pose for. A veritable collection of backslapping to be had or as I believe, cleverly disguised as networking? Girls only want to shoot with (or even pay) photographers they feel can propel their careers to greater heights...nothing wrong with that per say, but to have an image tagged to a certain photographer, is quite often seen as being more beneficial than the actual pictures that photographer takes 


I think that you appear to be wanting to make your present felt like you hacve said others do.  Feel free.  But at least answer my question.  It would only be polite.

This thread was merely a way to see who other people want to shoot with and get ideas of whom I may want to shoot with in the future.  This was not cleverly diguised as anything.  It was simply a way to see whom others like and maybe add people to the list that I would like to shoot.

I doubt that much of what happens on forums in genral can be classed as back slapping.  Nor do I think of it as back slapping. It is merely people saying what they want to say.   The amount of bitchy comments show that.

. I find it strange however when a lot of people (listed even) are only too happy to mimic/copy the ideas and produce work of a very similar look to that of others? So, if you haven't already pressed the block button, please go ahead


I would block you but I am wanting to see your words of wisdom and to bathe in the aura of your originality.

Sorry if I seem a little sarcastic but this was not meant to become controversal at all just an idea of whom people would like to work with.  There was no real reason to have a swipe.

stphq, it's a tough one for most to remember, haha. Also, yay for being on a list! cheeky


How do you pronounce his name?

Is he from a country that has not heard of verbs?

Having said that I have looked at his port and I like his port and yours too.

I have added two more people to my photographer list.

@ pinkbuildingphotography....You know, I've read a lot of what you have to say here on these forums and you are such a sarcastic arse aren't you....typical of the condescending people who overpopulate these forums screaming 'look at me, look at me' (and no-one else) Quite pathetic when you consider? Practically all of the models I've worked with have been, or are members of this site! I don't know how you carry on, I don't really care as it's none of my concern but the way I go about it is either by working with models people tell me about, or in most cases search through various portfolios myself? If I believe a particular model is worth paying, will help give me good images etc etc then off we go! Attention seekers are so boring, I take it with all your worldly knowledge of these things, you know exactly what I mean? Like I said, along with everyone else, I too have a right to an opinion? If you can't deal with that then it's pretty much set in stone that you fit right in with the kind I refer too.

I notice a few people had mentioned Raphaela.  I thought that she had retired.

Is she still modelling?

But surely that's the whole point of this thread Geoff. It's people telling you about other people. I've discovered quite a few different models I'd like to work with as a result of this thread. If anything, it's doing good for some of the talented individuals who choose not to post on the forums.

Yea, I guess it is and if people find it useful then good luck to them! The point I was trying to make is I find it tiresome to see the same old, same old in posts like this, if this thread was created a year ago, every subsequent reply would have probably appeared as they are doing now? So, as for originality and perhaps progress, it seems apart from me (as pointed out above) nothing has really changed, no-one is moving on? One thing I will agree with you on though is that there are some very talented members who would never choose to post on these forums, they just get on with it! Not talking about myself there by the way....just in case anyone is wondering
