GordonOne thing that is food for thought do any photographers take a chaperone with them when they do a shoot in a models home, the reason I say that is I'm disabled and could easily be overpowered by most female models.
To be honest, for all this talk one way and another, the reaility is most photographers don't want chaperoned models (for many reasons,) and have no reason to work with models who insist on bringing them. If you are a model who is wanting to make a career out of modelling, or do it as a part time job, then thats the reality of it.
At what point in its 4.5 billion year history was the world a safe place...
I'm worrying then? If someone needs a lift, fair enough, they can drop them off, help them in with their bags and leave, there's no need to hang around. If they are getting their makeup done, I highly doubt the makeup artist wants the model chatting to her boyfriend.
Not on my shoot you wouldn't, your giggle partner's arse would be in the waiting room.
That would never happen even if I was in it for fun I would still be looking to create quality images
What I'm saying is if you are a hobbiest photographer who is doing photography to - Meet people, get some nice images and generally just have some fun then it shouldn't make a difference if the model brings someone along..
I am, I do and it doesn't.
Bring who you want but they stay in the waiting room.
Location is different. I can understand why a girl half my age who I've never met before wants someone with her when she's half naked in the middle of nowhere.
You don't get me though, my reason for preferring someone else there is not down to older photographers or the fact we are strangers it just seems more "convenient" for there to be someone else around acting as a look out - wether that one of my friends or the photographers is irrelevant to me. Like I said if people are at all unsure about being alone with someone then they shouldn't take on the shoot because it will result in a model looking "unsure" which isn't a good look.
Nothing bad has ever happened to me out on location (touch wood it never does). Infact I find location work safer because it feels less intimate to me somehow..
AmethystVioletThese days a doctor won't even give you a genital exam without a chaperone being present, (incase you accuse of false practices), so I think it's perfectly logical for a photographer to accept chaperones at least for his own safety and reputation, if not the model's.
Dunno what doctors you go to...AmethystVioletThese days a doctor won't even give you a genital exam without a chaperone being present, (incase you accuse of false practices), so I think it's perfectly logical for a photographer to accept chaperones at least for his own safety and reputation, if not the model's.
