I was contacted by a local photographer to do a foot fetish type shoot. Fully clothed, with hels, and even food products being involved. I was open to the idea,the each his own. So we set up a date, (with a chaperone) and I though everything was all set.

He calls me the next day, angry and says there is no way I can bring someone to the shoot with me. he said it will dirupt his "creative process" and won't be as much of a turn on.

Hold the phone, for one, I do not shoot without someone else there. Period. And second, I was not aware this was for his immidiate sexual satisfaction. Then he got all offended when I asked him for references. He said he doen't supply references because his work is for provate use, and not published.

What a bunch of bulls***. Then he says that I am the one being unprofessional, and a little "too cautious" (none of HIS models ever brought this up). For all I know he's never even shot a model. Hell, he probably doesn't even own a camera.

It really sucks, because I'd love to do a foot fetish shoot. Oh well. In this case, I am definately better safe than sorry. It's not worth the risk, even if I am paid cash upfront, and I desparetely need the money.

Thank goodness you didn't go. You would be surprised how many girls don't listen to their instincts and they end up getting hurt. It all sounds very creepy and you can help other girls by talking about it and warning them about this situation. You might even run a check on his name and see if he is a sex offender. I hate to think about what he might do to someone who isn't as wise as you....

I don't blame you at all. This guy seems a bit too shady to deal with. Any photographer worth his salt would allow a chaperone, especially on a fetish type of shoot. Throw on there the fact that he cancelled the day before, makes me think that he had something else in mind. As far as referances, if he has any, then he should show you them. If he dosen't have any, he should let you know. Either way, I wouldn't work with him in the future if I were you. Keep you distance.

At least you found out ahead of time. He does not sound professional.

Yeah that's what I am thinking. I see his ads on an internet networking site, and I just want o warn everyone that gets into contact with him.

Hi Jade,

It's a good thing you didn't go. Always listen to your instincts.
As to the foot fetish thing, if you still want to do it, find a photographer you know and trust to do it and just have fun.

Well, the debate over whether a photog should or should not allow escorts will probably continue to go on, but "won't be as much of a turn on" is NOT a good reason to turn an escort away. That's a red flag that screams "HIGHLY WIERD!"

Don't let the need for money cause you to do something stupid. From your description it sounds like the guy really needs a hooker that doesn't mind if he brings a camera.
