I kinda agree with a few models you've mentioned here. Though... nonetheless not every models are into sizzling sex(y) themes. So they just ignore.
In Chinese this is called "thunder very loud, but then it did not rain" LOL
I would have written her off if she does not respond to SMS or email within a resonable time frame.
You know they are not fully committed; no point wasting your precious time.

They same goes for waiting for replies ... if they were serious about the assignment it simply makes no sense for the delay.
Initially I tried to give the models the benefit of doubt, but now I simply move on and make it a point not to ponder over the issue ...
Some of the other brothers here are right .. this is just something we do for enjoyment, why get worked up over no-shows and bad attitude, There are many models out there .. if A won't shoot try B .. if B shows attitude ... C, D and E are waiting in the wings ... eventually the serious ones will have their own following , and the others will fall by the wayside ..
By all means name them .. but just don't let them bother you too much .. just move on ..
And don't wait THAT long, no matter how much you want to shoot them .. there will be others, better and more responsible ..
While there are many bad models out there, there are also models circulating bad photographers names around.
I guess we should leave it to both models and said victim to trash out in this space.
Somehow, without a contract, it is not possible to take action against the non-contracted party for no show. The only best way is to write them off and tell your best buddies to avoid them.
In bridal forums, they have the bad photographer awards. In photographic forum, there is the bad model award... Sometimes, it just makes a dull sunday bright reading all these.
Take it easy guys, there are more green shoots coming up every day.
I replied to you asking for more info about the shoot, because I wasn't NOT interested or thinking that you're low class, I never ever think any photog is low class. I was really busy that time, and I have also explained it to you in my further reply to you. I replied you as soon as I could, which was already ASAP. I don't sit at my com all day replying pms and when I replied you regarding the shoot, which at that point of time, you thought I was already purposely not replying, like models who don't reply at all when not interested.. And I understand you felt upset because it seemed like I asked details for fun, then seem to be not interested to do dun wanna reply. So sorry that you felt like I purposely refused to reply and wanted to ignore you.. but that really wasn't the case.
Regarding email, I didn't know at that point of time you're the same person.. I just checked thru my email.. I'll tell you why I didn't reply, but privately if you wish to know.. but basically it's pertaining to bogus requests and emails..
At the end of the day ... the responsible ones will come out in the open and explain their stand ..
It's one way to separate the wheat from the chaff ...........
other models you have listed there i might not know, but i believe that Magdalene had her reasons as she had already replied to you above.
I meet with photographers, GWCs, makeup artistes, other nuisance characters and NPCs who purposely block your angle of view, distract your models when they shouldn't be there, done their own job and badmouth others. Its life. Just have to face it.
Nvm...at least you have come here and put in effort to explain, i appreciate tat.
