    it's wrong to misrepresent them as "Models"



    they are only considered "Talents" in the event circles

    Yes there is. It's called common sense and spending within your means. If you can only afford to spend $100 but something costs $150 will you still spend or choose not to? Nobody put a gun to your head and ask you to spend what.

    Don't like, don't join. Like but no money, don't join. Like and have money by all means join. I don't hear those who join complaining the way TS is complaining?

    As someone said, don't break other people's rice bowl. TS if you feel it is too expensive you have 2 options. Don't join or organise one that is more affordable according to your standards.

    No wonder some walls are gluey.

    Although many of the cs photoshoot "models" are only fit to be known as xmm or promo girls, but there are some which stand out and go on to become real models. We can't deny this.

    I'm amazed how people can draw a conclusion that TS want to break other ppl rice bowl by just asking why photoshoots cost are increasing.
    Its very common to complain about a product or service, for example in the FnB industry, no one is accusing anyone of breaking other ppls rice bowl (no pun intended :P) if they complain or review the taste or service for the price.
    And like photography, food taste is a subjective matter.

    The people who complain about breaking rice bowls are mostly shoot organizers themselves... ;-)

    Agree, that doesn't make sense at all. So if I complain about the increasing price of rice, cooking oil and toilet paper, am I breaking NTUC's rice bowl?

    I think it is because those shoot organisers may have observed that the participants have grown richer, so many having upgraded their gear and buying the latest gadget, thus its time to also rise prices to better align to the spending power, richness and talent of the esteemed participants.

    We look forward to more stunning photos at the Portraits & Poses forum!

    No, you are breaking some Thai farmer's rice bowl.
