    well, i told them, i don't shoot models, so you're asking the wrong person, unless you think i sleep with rocks.
    Should bring them on an actual production shoot. Say sunrise theme.

    Wake-up and get ready to meet: 2am
    Call time: 3.00 am
    Arrv Location: 3.30am
    Walk to shoot site: 3.30am - 4.00am
    Equipment set-up, make-up and wadrobe: 4.00am - 4.45am
    Test and adjustments: 4.45am - 5.30am (usually slightly longer)
    Break and wait till sunrise: till 6.35am
    All stand-by: 6.35am - 7.00am
    SHOOT: 5 minutes.
    Break-down, equipment check, dress-down, pack-up, area cleaning: 7.15am - 8 am
    End of shoot.

    Don't think they will have enough energy left to do anything between anybody's sheets and your rocks liao!

    This is what I call a good article, the person who wrote the article makes a stand and argues his point. It does not mean his point of view of view is correct, but it does allow readers to understand the purpos of reading the article.

    beg to differ.
    ST's journo's starting pt is "this is what's happening..", not "IMHO, i think that.."
    you don't expect an opinion piece of "The police arrested someone for drugs at 4am this morning", in that section of paper..
    unless she turns into a columnist, thats when you're right.

    of course, they can play with that by choosing which facts to (not) tell

    looking at the article, i wonder if the guys could have been dressed less casually, in order to give a more decent image than the article is implying..
    (ok, i know, its mainly a hobby, shouldnt need to be so formal..)

    It's the weather here that dictates dress codes.

    If it was to describe an event like an accident, a catatrophy, a murder etc, yeah, the facts will do. But a story of men taking phtographs of ladies or girls in bikini is no where near worthy news to simply state facts (which might also be subjective here). It's like as if the article was meant to make a point, but fell short of it.

    Folks they way how the papers in S'pore works ( roughly) is most of the angle of the story after it's discussed before hand and after it's written LIES on the editor of that section ( home,sports,etc).
    >During meetings,story ideas are raised......
    >The reporter is assigned to cover n write,research,etc
    >After articles written,the supervisors read,approve,query,chop,blah
    >Sub-editors will layout,cut,chop story to fit space,column,etc

    See,what u read isn't really the whole story.

    Reporter(s) failed to explain the definition of TFCD, why they do so. They made it sound as if it's 'free' bikinis instead, downgraded the entire image. Beginners does TFCDs, heck, even very pro models does tfcds to update their portfolios, norm in many countries. Some pro intl models (on TFCD) even specifically ask for lingeries/bikinis. Childish article.

    If they want to report on real sleaze, better off to report on other forums that teach you how to upskirt, selling spy pencams, shoecams, real sex freelancers and oh, they're from JC's and Poly's as well! But you can't get that in CS here. No matter what, we shoot models with cameras, with consent.

    After reading the printed article, I find that the reporter though admitted having knowledge of the very different types of model shoots as evidenced by her reference to "up to $250" shoots elected to focus on bikini and lingerie shoots. Her purspose is made clear in the invitation at the end of the article to "Have your say at www.straitstimes.com" about "Young girls posing in bikinis or lingerie for money - Is it appropriate". Borrow knife and kill people?
    Unfortunate, ignorant and immature organisers and models helped her.

    I'm wondering if the reporter herself even went to the photoshoot? as the ST photographer that apprently went for the photoshoot was a man!

    Just wonder whether the organiser and reporter ever thought of the feeling of the model when her picture was appeared in the paper.
    The organiser invited the reporter to his shoot and the reporter later put the picture in the paper and the model face was seen clearly.
    The model is still a student (as stated in the paper), so what will happen to her if her whole school know what she doing...
