TS..... if this is a TFCD, costs should be split too..... u should've asked to share 50/50 on studio rental and make sure u collect her share in advance
She sounds like someone you know and not a stranger........... u should make known your unhappiness at her irresponsible behavior...... otherwise... if you keep quiet about it in front of her ... then you swallow and ACCEPT IT
This happened in April.......U should be ranting to her LONG AGO then and not to us only just now when its almost September, no ?
Sorry, I just HATE any man to be played the fool by a woman and not do something about it.
better luck next time
i think the replies to this one will be very, very interesting.
we could even produce a clubsnap humour book about it, and it will be a bestseller. can help with server upgrades for years to come.
i am sorry if anyone here is offended by my sweeping statements about model shooters.
of course, if your conscience is clear.............. why do you care what i say? it won't apply to you. or does it?
next time just meet up the model first before any shoot
at least u know how sincere the model is
I know of such problems. I do TFCD shoot too.
Kena fly aeroplane a few times already.
My "playsafe" solutions are:
- Choose the TFCD models who don't club.
- Choose locations which is also near breakfast F&B outlets. (Clarke quay is near song fa bak kut teh / chi gardens near hawker centre)
- For studio shoots, ask them to pay "deposit" first?
making a factual statement, before moving on to a personal viewpoint and a clear statement of it... with no attempt to disguise it as something else (like, for example, a "humble view") , is now seen as a cocky comment and self-flattery?
oh dear, the next time i declare that a plate of chicken rice is delicious and rub my tummy, i will shut my mouth for fear that people will think that i think that the sun revolves around me.
Yes, model can always start a new thread. the point is, PGs can refer to the sticky, check out the various feedbacks, then browse thru the sections/threads.
Even if the pilot start a new thread, if the old thread link is in the sticky, surely the PG would have some impression? Then maybe refer back to the old and re-confirm whether it's the same person.
Of coz, if the PG don't do homework and check out the sticky.. then cannot help lah..
The link in the sticky thread is there for a record of consumer feedback. Just like there is a thread for all de-reg a/c.. something like that..
As for the disputes, it's in the respective thread body itself.. it's up to members to judge and refer to both sides of the story..
For entries to the sticky.. the member can request to the mod team. The sticky will only contain links.. no comments, no judgement.. just links. So mod team stand is neutral and not involved.
Of coz, models can always reg new nick.. at least, there'll be 30 days "break" before they can post again in services..
This, can be an encouragement for the professionals and responsible models.. as it can meant potentially more business if the photographers avoid the irresponsible ones..
There are pple who likes Orh Lua (蚝煎) for whatever reasons.. maybe the oyster, maybe the egg.. to say negative things about pple who likes to eat oyster omelette, or about the food itself, is like not respecting others lor..
it kinda also insult pple who eat it for the oyster/egg.. not everyone eat it for the cholesterol.. just inevitable that oyster/egg contains cholesterol too..
To say "you like to eat something" have different impact to others from saying "other food is unwholesome"..
My view is.. I eat my oyster omelette, and will continue eating.. you say what you like.. it's free expression of opinion.. I respect that.. so no issue for me..
But nevertheless.. to comment negatively about other pple's liking for that particular food is like a bit rude lor.. some have no issue.. some may have issues..
The food thing is just an illustration.. I guess you know what I meant lah..

I think you've made your point and repeated putting down "these photographers" to effectively lumps them into a category of low-class citizens doesn't really help in your case. Instead it makes you look like you have a personal vendetta against everyone who takes xmm pictures. I agree with ed9119 whom I don't see as posting as a moderator (why bring in this issue about mods?) but rather as any other person sharing the forum. I for one, have always been trying to get the mods to post and reply as normal people rather than high and mighty moderators, and I appreciate ed9119 posting in the way he did.
Don't mean anything personal to you, and hope you take this in a positive manner but frankly, there have been one too many postings about xmm and their green tea.
catchlights brought up a good point - "...that is a "culture", "custom" or "ritual" for them to fly photographers aeroplane..."
It's not going to be easy and it will take a lot of collective effort from these photographers to implement, not to mention, there will always be new blood from both photographers and models (with short shelf life) and the same problem will keep repeating itself, unless the culture or custom can be changed.
You don't really see many people fly aeroplane during the free outings organized in Gatherings & Outings, right? I believe this is because of culture or custom - anyone posting and cutting queue, for example, will be reprimanded and repeated offence people will be blacklisted from the organizers.

I think it's all about supply and demand...
