I was asked recently by a new model to send her a list of modeling websites that I recommend. This is fairly common i'm sure where newbie models are concerned. I sent her the list of sites that I am a member of and told her my opinion of all of them.

I did however leave out one particular site, I wont mention it by name but it rhymes with blowdenpee.

My question is this. Am I doing the model a disservice by not mentioning this site to her?

its the largest online modeling service and it creates hundreds of contacts for models.

its not perfect, and neither are you and I.

But if your model friend gets out there in the world, someone is going to mention it to her, and she'll see how big it is, and then she'll seriously consider why YOU didnt tell her about it, hurting your credibility.

So tell her the good and the negative sides of it and let her get on there.

+1 If you don't mention them, you'll look uninformed when she finds it. Feel free to tell her your opinion of the site, but tell her.

according to your post, the model asked you for modeling sites you recommend, not simply a list of modeling sites. and that's what you provided her with: your personal recommendations. so how did you do her a disservice by responding with what she asked for?

maybe cause its just not an honest thing to do.

Like them or not, they still are the biggest modeling website, and to leave them out becuase of your personal feelings is not really in her best interest, which is the reason for the exercise in the first place.

hardly, "according to your post, the model asked you for modeling sites you recommend, not simply a list of modeling sites. and that's what you provided her with: your personal recommendations. so how did you do her a disservice by responding with what she asked for?" I agree with Jimmy on this, (I dont agree with him on a lot of things)

Its of my PROFESSIONAL opinion that one could consider them not a modeling website. I recommend models not to post their profile on the site because in my PROFESSIONAL opinion it LOWERS their PROFESSIONAL image. Its in my opinion now how NOT to promote yourself. The site does not have a descernable standard, I hold myself to a higher standard than "no" standard.

Since when did biggest automatically make them right, the best, professional, or the authority?
