I have to say they are very welcome but very rare.
Since 2009, I think I have had 3.

It's a pity not many are like you to reply with a no thanks
Most just have bad manners and never reply.
I suppose the excuse would be , had no time but only takes seconds to type ...no thanks.

Hi All,

Personally I think its nice to get a reply, even if its a no thanks.

Choosing the right model is not as easy as it appears and i'm sure from the models point of view its similar.

Always reply to any email. Any model who purports to have a professional position in this business should find this essential. Too many treat it as a quick mail from a friend and just bin it. If you don't want to work on a project say so with thanks for the offer. That photographer might in the future have work you would die for. Although as a "professional" I can't imagine many jobs that would be so repulsive you would choose to avoid earning the cash. As a professional photographer and later in another profession I have never worked for anyone I liked or respected. I worked with people I liked and respected and that made up for it. The real professional attitude, work ethic and even just common curtesy is sadly missing these days though I am pleased to say not with the Purestorm members I have employed.
It only happens all the time.

This... is what the notes tool is for. Always worth remembering the positives, as well as the negatives.

I'd much rather get a "no thanks" rather than be left wondering ?
I'm sure it will smart with some people with more ego than talent but that is their issue not yours

A "thanks but no thanks" whilst not exactly welcome is appreciated as you know where you stand.
A little help is worth a lot of sympathy.
