    was reading thru from page 1 to page 8, thou i never try shooting model of TFCD or paid shoots. I take my stand with the photographers that feel that we should blacklist irresponsible models.

    freelancing be it a photographer or model, its a job and we should all be responsible adult or young adult. benefit of the doubt that calling in sick the nite b4 or last min to inform the other party that you cant make it, I believe that you should do so with a call and not sms. upon hearing the voice, we can more or less tell better if the other party is really sick or not (less those actress train type)

    my 2 cent suggestion is to have a vote list of the models that advertise themselves on CS and maybe the same goes for photographers that often engage models.

    example: model name: ABC thumb up 20 thumb down 3

    the vote list should be control by either a Mod or a very well trusted CS member. and that negative votes be only confirm when the party that got stood up either saw the other party at another shoot session or had been informed by other party. give and take the negative vote will only be reflected onto the list after 1-3 days of the event giving the benefit of the doubt that if the person for what ever reason cant contact the affected party due to accident or any un-controllable cause.

    this way any good model/photographer will have more thumbs up than down, and ppl who see the list will know better that which person can be trusted more.

    of cos the negative vote to be submitted up to the list admin should indicate the
    1. reason for no show
    2. number of attempts to contact the MIA party
    3. the pilot party make any compensation effort?

    and after 1-3 days of no response from the voter to redraw his/her negative vote as the other party has genuinely apologized and compensated the affected party. the vote will be updated onto the list

    the list should not be used to rate if the model is good at posing or style as all this are experiences and personal views, model get better with more jobs and guidance. the list should only be use to reflect the work commitment and responsibility the model or photographer.

    Lots of work, and the band will stuff the voting process. There are also so many models coming through, and not all have a visible presence on CS, any official list will be hard to maintain and incomplete.

    That said, I always ask around, for references. I look at the model's portfolio, determine who is the photographer, and go direct for or .

    One used that excuse 3 times in 6 weeks. As I said, I do check references, and I will give comments or endorsements for models too.

    Haiz, more backpedalling.

    Take a look at your posts again, the mention of "sick" only applies to Canonised post. However, I am addressing the earlier post you made saying calling for people to be understanding to models.

    If you wish to quote two people in a single post and only have certain paragraphs apply to certain people, then you will be better off separating your posts rather than get "misunderstood" and backpedal later.

    Not a no-show scenario. Just that some photographer think that the excuse is absurd (and my point is who are we to judge?).

    We often call in sick on the morning. Do we force ourself to work and had the boss sent us home after that? What if we spread the virus to our colleague? In this case, the photographers.

    I am sure we are disappointed when a shoot is cancelled as we make time for it. It's any better to be told of the cancellation face to face as compare to a phone-call or sms?

    In this I really have to agree with the others .. I think you are determined to show your face of compassion that I think you don't quite get what we are trying to say and/or do with this thread ..

    Mainly it's to alert each other to people, mollers or photogs, who frequently fail to show after giving their commitments ... We are not referring to one-off cases of no shows, but rather to alert each other of models with unwelcome "trends" ... As I said, an incident happening to you can be the tenth time the same model does it, but to different people ... Or even as some of the photogs have mentioned, giving frivolous reasons and frequently, like getting menstral problems 3 times in 6 weeks ....(as stated by DP)

    Since you brought up the point about calling in sick at work ... try doing it often see what your superiors think .... Try giving some of the excuses the mollers give to some of us at your workplace, and see if your bosses are understanding about it ...

    i'm once again pretty late into the fray but honestly, some people here have really good suggestions when it comes to evaluating a model. honestly if you go on an singaporean blogshop especially the ones on livejournal, you'll see that the feedback system has been in place for the longest time. i used to have an account on sgselltrade and they had a separate account where all the user feedbacks are stored. so stuff like positive, negative or neutral is put down, and a comment. and the comments cannot be deleted or edited. we could do the same here and it doesnt even take too much effort on the part of the mods. set up a separate section solely for feedback and models are mandated to have a post there they cannot edit, for photographers and organisers to relay their feedback. policing only need come in when feedback gets out of hand or is unwarranted. in the end you'll find with a system in place like that, these so-called models are less prone to want to fly the plane and negative feedback will then be far and few between. AND it is a great avenue for photographers and organisers to find references.

    we now live in a wild wild west situation where there seems to be little or no consequences at all if they decide to back out - which is an insanely immature and stupid move on their part of course.

    and, why worry about the defenders or the men who mainly use their dicks to compose their shots and organise shoots? i think there are enough people here in cs who are mature enough to evaluate fairly based on a variety of factors. i'm sure if you had so-and-so photography going in to to write 'great model. lub her very much worx!' and the photographs come up looking like crap, its indication enough that the feedback is dick-led and not honest at all. right? the level of argument should be some sort of indication that some level of maturity still exists here in cs, albeit in patches.

    or maybe i have a too optimistic view?

    So fed up man. It's like - 60% of these model appointments either don't turn up or get sick or whatever.

    you go through all the trouble of preparing the set, buying props and these mods don't even have the decency of saying sorry or keeping to the appointment.

    They have to realize that a whole lot of preparation and money goes on in renting equipment and stuff, and it's not just a matter of waking up on time for the photogs. So difficult to find dependable mods now.

    Anyone else have any advice?

    Had my share before. Models screw up, but sometimes I myself also screw up with inadequate planning.

    Models who MIA... endless email, sms, call don't reply/pickup.... etc...
