Hey guys have you encountered some new so called "models" that claim to have little or NO experience but yet choose not to do tfcds and some even choose NOT to shoot with not so pro photogs??
I recently encountered a so called "model" who when i msg her told me that she has alot of offers and some she is doing with what she calls "HIGHLY SKILLED" photogs... she even said that she has alot of offers and that she is "considering" who to work with..
After showing her my portfolio she said she was willing to consider working with me although she thought my portfolio was just ok only with problems with my lighting and angles. No doubt my portfolio isn't the best but coming from someone who is considered new to this field and acting so arrogant it's kinda irritating..
A few days later i msg her again and she totally forgot who i am and asked me for my portfolio again!! I just think she was unprofessional and didn't even bother to take note of who she would like to work with and think that just becoz she has found "highly skilled" photogs to shoot for her tht makes her a supermodel liow???
This isn't the first one i have encountered... alot of young girls 16 - 20 onwards are now trying to enter the modelling industry and some of them are really arrogant after getting like msgs from photogs to shoot them... come on let's face it, everytime a new "model" posts her service in the services provided section alot of photogs will msg her to do shoots coz let's face it, those of us who can't afford it will try to get as many tfcds shoots as possible. Isn't TFCD shoots a win win situation for both the models and the photogs??? (I'm refering to newbies who are both trying to build their portfolio) so if these new models choose to reject tfcds and would rather get paid then shouldn't we as photogs also charge them for our services? Aren't we service providers too??? if these brand new models wanna charge us to shoot them then i think we should not give them the pics then. We are paying them to pose for us so that we can build our portfolio but since they charge us then why should we give them the pics for their portfolio??? I SAY WE CHARGE THEM FOR THEIR PICS!!
What do u guys think?
