Last weekend I scheduled a shoot with a model. The day before the scheduled shoot, the model e-mails me to cancel the shoot becasue she has a dance class (the appointment was made a week ago and at that time she said it was OK with her schedule). OK .. fine, I had a relaxed weekend. About 6 days ago, scheduled another shoot with a different model for coming Saturday and today the model e-mails me to cancel it (family matters - she says).
The problem is that almost every time I schedule a shoot for a weekend I forfeit a possible newspaper assignment (which is a paid job). So, I am thinking if its worth it to schedule anymore TFP shoots with "busy" models because after next couple of weeks it is going to be cold outside (I do outdoor stuff only) and also I keep on losing time/money by cancelled appointments at the last moment.
I think I should try be a photo-journalist although I prefer to be a glamour/casual phtographer. Am I over-reacting???
