What would they gain if they let their promoters waste their time on opportunists like you? Furthermore, your post seems to suggest that promoters ought to be obliging and force out a smile for you. I don't know if this has occurred to anyone else, but it seems you are the one who comes across as arrogant. Your camera in hand does not give you the license to shoot anything you fancy. Lastly, these promoters are human, not mannequins. They deserve some respect too.
    agree...some may be normal sale staff that paid $5/hr

    they will rather do more sales and earn from comission then to entertain photographers

    sometimes it is the approach, there are pple who sneak around to take pic without even asking

    for me, I will tell them what I use the photo for, some of the models have been around for the last few years and suprisingly they still remember me and even ask me for photo that I took for them few years back.

    I will also make them pose with the company products, at least the company will also gain some exposure, and not just take the opportunity for "free photoshoot"

    Self-centred, egoistic and selfish, these are the 3 attributes we do not need.

    B : ok lor
    So B is so unwilling let A took her photo ...
    A : (Took out a pocket PC) can i have your contacts? or email or whatever .... so that i can email you the pic, or ask you out to be my model, cos i have studio ....
    ...

    WOW KAO! This is what i saw at Commex .... haha

    At the end, the photo 'MIGHT' appear here at <Portraits and Poses> .... and everyone start commenting, ... wow! pretty ... wow, nose bleeding liao .... wow! tonight how to sleep ?

    Paiseh ... this is a 2 cents of a cat ....
    u will be surprise to see some "pian-jia" using pro body and some real commercial pro using D70 . Anyway i think we need to be more sensible for such event , its already so packed to walk ard already let alone bringing out yr big camera and shoot at busy models .

    this is hilarious, this is comex, a trade show, they are here to sell stuff, this is not, i repeat, not, a car show, and the female promoters are not race queens! hahahaha! so if they blow u off (no pun intended! heheh), just suck it up and move on...hahahaha, they dun owe u a living....

    Its keeping entertained this afternoon....

    Besides, it shows how some newbies get carried away when they have a new toy in their hands!

    Imagine if they introduced guns here.....
    "Oh oh oh! I have a new gun... let me go out and shoot something...."


    Disgrace to the rest who are really photographers and not some hormone charged boy with a speech and social etiquette impediment...

Your work day is long, you are having to be nice to all sorts of people who are sweaty, possibly obnoxious and so on. Add to this the misery of anywhere from dozens to hundreds of hormonally challenged "kids" with cameras wanting to take your photo and post it God knows where or do God only knows what with the images. How would you feel being in this fishbowl scenario for a couple of days?

    I'll bet 99% of you would feel like screaming at some one with a big camera and lens to leave you the F*** alone.
    Yeah, well said Ian. I was at the show for 2 hours, in comfy shoes and still feel very tired after that. Imagine the model in very little clothes on, feeling cold and tired and still got to smile for your camera and those big ass flash that hurts the eyes.

    As for posting of pictures in whatever sites, I guess it doesn't really matter - any public figure like politician, artist, actors etc have got their pictures everywhere - they are all in the public domain, so models shouldn't mind if they think in that manner.

    No need to pity la. They get paid market price leh. Better than to be a crew at Burger King or Delifrance. Some are students who make some pocket money to buy designer's stuff.
