Here is what I have observed watching the model contest. First my bud dynamike taught me a lot, if they are just flybys why give them a triple power vote. So I held off on models I had never seen post here before but I have paid attention. Most, when they lose badly disappear they don't come back perhaps because they really don't want anything to do with us they just wanted the money. That is not a bad thing but let's look at statistics, if 97% never come back what purpose did my vote serve? I give my max votes to models who have been with us, who patiently deal with us as photogs, and on occasion give their input. Do we need new model contributors? You bet, but pay attention to how many we have gained from the contest.

To the models and MUAs, female and male that hang with us photogs day in and day out, before we ever had a friggin contest, I want to personally thank you. And anytime you would like a shoot with me that might help your career just let me know. I wish I was rich and could help you all but right now (unless I win MegaMillions) all I can offer is time and talent. BUT, I want you to know that YOU are truly Garage Glamour MEMBERS and in my book far ahead of the pack.

Hi David,
I can't even remember what photo that was for but I certainly didn't mean any offence. It was just a joke I didn't realise everything had to be so serious, I will reframe from doing any like it again.
I really am sorry if I caused offence, if you know who’s pictures it was can you please let me know so I can send her a PM to apologise!
Nina

Nina,

Here's my beef. You have five posts to your name and one of them happens to be about the contest. You want my support in the contest. Then post and support this forum. And do it for more than just about the contest.

Mike,

You're going to get tons flooding in for the $$$. It's the same when new models join 0MP and put up webcam shots and expect to be paid. They never follow up. These models that join just for the contest and then never follow up weren't worth keeping around anyway. Those few gems that do are what we really want around here afterall.

BTW, those of you models & MUA's that stick around and take an active part in this community get my thanks as well.

Mike

Mike,
I have the same appraoch when voting for models in the contest. I only vote for those that are contributing members to the family. I myself gave up on entering the contest, as there is no way for me to compete with all the young hotties that breeze through for the contest, but I CAN support those that are part of the GG family.

Just a joke? There are jokes, and there are insults to peoples anatomy or looks on a contest entry.

A joke is when one photographer kids about another's bald head.

An insult is when a person makes negative anatomical comments about a model who, although she may not have the best photo, is trying. To me, it's just un professional.

I'm not going back to find it now. You left it, you find it.

I'm not bothered about the contest, I know I will not win I just enter to get some feedback on pics, thats why I don't post those please vote for me messages, I thought if someone likes the picture they vote accordingly, looks like i'm wrong. I post in forums that I want to have a say in or something, not to get votes so you have me very wrong there.
