Thread: Something unpleasant happened @ a shoot

  1. #1

    Default Something unpleasant happened @ a shoot

    I happened to attend a lingerie shoot today. The reason I'm posting this is because I was utterly disgusted with someone today. A fellow shooter was most enthusiastic & fire off his shots+flash everywhere & anytime. While the models are walking, going to change, posing, adjusting their garments etc.

    Otherwise, he was simply all over the whole room, virtually "stepped all over us", gave us no time & space to shoot. There are at least 5 others around & he has no respect for anyone. Everyone else except him were uncomfortable & annoyed. To make things worse, shots were aimed @ genitalia. Yes, obscene & most rude IMHO. He would ask for poses like opening legs..... u know who you are.

    I mean look, i am a male. I like women & pretty things. I appreciate human body, male & female just like I appreciate fine cars, watches, houses, furniture etc. Appreciation & obsession is another thing but acting like a "hungry wolf" is a "beastly" behaviour.

    In fact, I was so disgusted that halfway through, I asked for the model's permission to call off the shoot. She was extremely uncomfortable & what's the point of photography @ other's pain?

    I'm not trying to score anything here but I'm sure this will not end here & banning or screening shooters will only work to a certain extend.

    I appeal to all organisers & models to have the right to HALT a shoot when the situation calls for it then have a word with that photographer. Expel & refund him if necessary. If the orgainser is/are gals, please seek help with guys that are present, I'm sure some will help/support.

    I hope the gals are doing fine, they need to make a living like us but not to the extend of getting exploited & humiliated. It is shameful that some of us don't treat others with respect.

    whats the point of having this thread without naming the person?

    if it is true that he is so annoying to everyone present in the shoot, the more u should name him so next time, if org include him in any future mode shoot, others will have the choice of not joining the shoot, else suffer the same unpleasant feeling u have now.
    photography makes one sees things from all angles.

    i mean u never know, the fact that newspapers did published such... i am sure some noble folks will complain to police to check out those shoots behind hotel doors...

    fyi too, if your camera or laptop or any storage media (SD, CF etc) is found with evidence of pronography content by the police, u are doomed under the law...
