    Default Clubsnap publicity ...

    With the recent ... ahem .. publicity given to Clubsnap and photographers hiring freelance models in general ..

    Does anyone feel it may now be harder to get freelance models to do photoshoots ??

    The press coverage seems to have painted Clubsnap forum users to be less than professional ... I know that TNP is a tabloid and all that, but it does have a sizable readership .. and the articles may have had an effect on models wannabes ...

    Just wondering what others here feel ....

    WEARING nothing but a pair of pink heels and a simple bracelet, the model, a former photographer from Australia, reclines on the bed in a hotel room here, as a group of photographers circles him for a good angle.

    TIRED: The model drank two cups of Coke Light during the shoot at a Hotel 81 room. He brought a suitcase of skimpy clothes and props, donning a tiny bikini in the first of three costume changes, before shedding all his clothes and whipping out a toy snake.

    If willing to pay top $, there'll is no shortage of takers.

    If you read the article carefully the girls are there for the money and not for ART.

    What I meant was, do you think there will be shortage of real aspiring models willing to go through the process of learning via TFCDs, then followed by paid shoots as they gain in experience .... those who are in it for the sake of photography.

    The bad publicity will attract more people of the wrong kind (both "photogs" and models) and drive the real ones away ( from worry that CS is getting sleazy ?)

    Either way, we will get more models who are only in for the fast cash, or less models who are in it for photography's sake ...

    Which is bad news for true photogs ?

    If there is a shortage of "real aspiring models" then more photographers will come from behind the camera to in front of the camera.

    And P&P will be full of self-portraits of all sorts.
