Also, if you look carefully at the directory, the "fetish" implied was regarding...partial body part shooting... as stated.
If you ask me, the TNP should create another story to say "How come Model complains about unsolicted requests, when she put "Fetish" in her profile?"
didn't plow through all the response in this thread. but my 2 cents here.
Let's take our local media reporting with a huge pot of salt. we all know how 'good' and 'accurate' the reporting is.
I can recall that there are a few threads sprouting out in this forum on some of the organized shoot turning into 'soft-porn'. I really wonder if these threads were created by the same reporting journalist to create a platform for reporting first before it gets to the print.
anyhow, the report on asiaone sounds like models are being forced to take part in sleazy shoots. I think there are plenty of willing models here in this country who possessed the necessary attributes to pose in nude/lingerie and its the conservative culture (sadly) that results in reports like these.
I tend to believe that most organized shoot are conducted in a ethical manner rather then models being persuaded/force into sleazy shoot. Whether it is view from an artistic point of view or not, i think it really boils down to individuals.
If its between willing parties, I really do not see if there is anything inherently wrong. The more critical issue should be these models should not be taken advantage off during the shoot. As most are aware, there are a few threads from models complaining of touchy photographers during shoot.
So, don't read too much time on such bo liao article.
Opinions are like A-holes. Everyone's got one.
