Hello all, Surrephoto Here.

As many/most may know (hope this is not a sweeping statement), there is almost certainly going to be an article on the Sunday Times tomorrow about clubsnap photoshoots.

1. I was called by an ST Editor by the name of D*****. He/she asked me whether the prices of photoshoots will go any lower.

At the end of the conversation, i received an SMS from him/her stating that they were interested to interview Bikini/Lingerie models who preferably charge low rates.

2. Today without agenda, i joined Candleghost's photoshoot (Sundress+bikini top) at Sentosa Palawan and figured that ST's reporter cum photographer was there to take shots of the photoshoot.

I'm not going to go on a guessing game on the angle that ST will take with their article tomorrow. But as a newbie organiser i simply hope this will not cause another wildfire like it did before.

Thanks all.

I've no bone to pick with any organiser, I'm fine, in fact I pay the models almost all the $ profits fr the shoots. I'm doing all these out of fun but...

If reporters were to report on the hotel's venue in the papers along with the Organiser, and if the hotel takes action, he'll be in hot soup. Safer to have the photog/potential undercovers sign NDA before shoots.

I'm aware reporters, hotels, law enforcements, etc are reading CS too.

At the end of the day, people don't spend so much time to thoroughly understand the situation.

If you go everywhere and tell people you join/organise shoots that feature lingerie/bikini or even casual fashion models for random photographers to shoot, you're going to receive a few stares for certain.

Whether it is a self-proclaimed/proclaimed model, interviewees who join/do not join shoots, the resultant public image would be the same.

We should just brace ourselves if its yet another wildfire. Sometimes need to work within the problems instead of showing that its not a problem.

I'll assume for now that D***** the editor/reporter from ST is simply doing his/her job.

Just as clients demand a quota of photographs from their wedding photographer, the chief-editor demands a quota of articles a month from his/her editors/reporters...

Was just called by the Straits Times again. This time I was asked how much I earnt from organising photoshoots.

I've been honest with the Straits Times and hopefully they will be so mutually.

Straits Times have very good techniques and track record to turn fact into very interesting articles.

Good luck with the article tomorrow.

Let's not be too pragmatic about the situation. I'm simply hoping and trying to be optimistic. Lol.

We'll see about it.

One fact i'm willing to accept is that such photoshoots (xmm, bmm, pro-model, amateur, self-proclaim, deproclaimed) is not something majority of the public can accept.

Whether i speak the truth or refuse to comment, it's simply easy to sensationalise articles about sociably less acceptable entities.

Just my two cents...
