OMG! I have 1 negative strike. Late cancellation? I was guaranteeing the model her fee, but a fee with no model release info? Note I was left a negative ref on 17.10.2019 by a model I was set to work with this Sat 19th Oct 2019. This is unfair. I made it clear to the model I was to work with, to provide me with all info for the model release. I sent her several messages stressing the urgency. I told her that I cannot pay her without the info in full needed for the model release form. She did not even give me her contact number so I have no option to contact her if she don't turn up. I simply do not operate like this with models who do not want to communicate properly and provide the info required, so had no option but to cancel 2 days before the shoot. I hope this model can see the way she has behaved, learn from it, be more professional with her communications to the photographer. I have contacted admin about this. Unlucky me again. I am left with a negative strike when I am a positive person. I have a model fee here waiting for any model who wants to work with me in Durham this sat 19th Oct. I have already paid for my travel (non refundable) and just have to book a hotel to shoot. I cancelled the hotel just in time or would have lost even more money. I had to rebook the hotel for travel and shoot reasons with my next shoot in Newcastle from Durham, so lost money on hotel fees. I hope the model can realise what she has done and react positively for a better outcome. I have found a way to avoid this ever happening to me again. All models wishing to work with me, must provide 2 weeks latest before the shoot all the info I ask for the model release form or I will cancel. The 2 weeks cancellation will avoid me getting caught in any model's spider web of unfair negative references. I have learned that there is no way out of the spider web trap. I hope this info helps photographers and models alike. Update 28.10.2019. I have found out that this same model had issues with another photographer and are not on speaking terms. She definitely has serious issues. Issues or not, we should all try and work together peacefully. I really care about the welfare of the models I work with, but also care about my sanity.
I'm Tony, a London based Photographer/Videographer who has a passion for shooting Videos and Photos of the female form.
My passion is shooting the Female Figure, clothed, lingerie and nude. I also shoot some Playboy style, adult video & Photos (a bit more explicit than nude, but will not ask any model who does not do that type of posing to do so. I fully respect all the models I shoot with and their boundaries of posing. I consider this a important factor when working with any model, and I also hope anyone who reads my profile understands this. When I contact a model for a shoot inquiry, I have read her profile beforehand. My Objective is to Shoot videos & photographs of a model in the most artistic & creative way. I also want to show (what ever model I work with), in the best light so it boosts her & my popularity through quality work. I welcome criticism on my work, because this is a good way for me to progress by hearing others opinions. I am very professional in attitude and very considerate. I have been shooting video for 8 years now to date 19.8.2019 and photography for 31 years to date 19.8.2019. The most important thing for me during any shoot with a model is for them to feel relaxed, safe and comfortable working with me. frequent communication and honesty is so important between myself and any model for planning a shoot properly. I may need photos of a model's shooting location, if it is a home shoot or studio (To work out it's suitability for my project) and also send the model example photos of my project Ideas. Please note that I do not work with any chaperones at all on any of my shoots due to bad experiences with them, which affected the quality of the shoot via distractions and also attempted theft of my camera gear. I now also offer my models a guaranteed model fee if I cancel the shoot. This does not apply if the model does not want to pose for what we agree on. This also does not apply if the model does not communicate with me once the booking is made. Poor communication may result in poor work result. If the model is late I do not guarantee the model fee. Anything can happen at anytime so I have adopted a new way of making sure that I can 100% Guarantee my models fee, in the event that I have to cancel. I have a credit insurance scheme which covers me. I use to guarantee my model fee before but it failed when I had unforeseen expensive accident costs, so came up with a new idea which is fail proof.

THERE'S NOTHING WRONG WITH A MODEL TURNING DOWN A PHOTOGRAPHER/VIDEOGRAPHER FOR A SHOOT. AFTER ALL A MODEL AND PHOTOGRAPHER HAS TO BE COMFORTABLE WITH ONE ANOTHER. I WOULD CERTAINLY NOT WANT TO WORK WITH A MODEL WHO WAS UNCOMFORTABLE WITH ME. THIS WOULD SHOW IN THE QUALITY OF THE IMAGES OR VIDEO. I'M NEVER OFENDED IF A MODEL DOES NOT WANT TO WORK WITH ME OR REPLY TO MY MESSAGE, UNLESS A SHOOT IS BOOKED AND CONFIRMED WITH THE MODEL. I REQUIRE PROPER COMMUNICATION AND CONDUCT FROM ANY MODEL I AM TO WORK WITH. IF NO MODEL RELEASE INFO IS GIVEN TO ME, 2 WEEKS BEFORE A SHOOT (IF BOOKED FROM A EARLIER DATE BEFORE THE 2 WEEK PERIOD) I WILL CANCEL THE SHOOT WITOUT PAYING THE MODEL FEE. IF THE SHOOT IS BOOKED LESS THAN 2 WEEKS TO THE SHOOT I WILL REQUIRE THE MODEL RELEASE DETAILS AT ANY TIME I SPECIFICALLY REQUIRE IT AND WILL CANCEL THE SHOOT.
