Every now and then, I get an email from someone (not the same person) saying they have seen my work or my shots of a certain model (various models) on one of my web pages. They then inquire if I am selling, or most recently trading, nude or semi-nude image sets.

Since the four web pages I have clearly state that I am an amateur photographer, and there is absolutely no mention of images being for sale or trade, I haven't figured out why these people keep approaching me.

Stranger still is that none of my pages have nudes on them; a few topless shots, but no nudes.

Is there some vast underground network of image collectors or something? Or are these just porn site operators looking for new stuff for their pay-to-view sites?

Have you been approached via email by individuals offering to buy image sets? Or is this something particular to stating that you are an amateur (i.e., presumably not into photography for the bucks...)?

My answer has been and continues to be no, my images are not for sale or trade. If it's not posted by me or the model, you ain't gonna see 'em.

About as close to nude as I go...

I had a similar e-mail the other day,..a guy in Va wanted to know if I had any images of one of the models in my GG port,...said he was interested in nude/glamour and wanted to know if I would like to trade/view some of his images. Seemed really strange to me,...I told him whats in my port, is all there is, and let him know I wasn't interested in viewing his images.
The model he was interested in is NOT nude in my port.

Yes.

Do you spend much time perusing the Usenet newsgroups?

Just as there are coin collectors and stamp collectors, there are image collectors, in the digital age "file collectors."

These guys are typically harmless, they really don't even always have that much interest in the subject. They get their satisfaction in being able to ferret out every "file" available for any one model, or having the "full and complete" setup.

And yes, there ARE guys that are doing this as a sideways method of procuring content.

Recently, I've been getting emails through several of the sites that I run, asking for autographed photos. My response has been, and remains: "Sure, no problem, just visit her store page at this link and place your order."

Also of note: While the models that send out autographed photos *do* do it themselves, they no longer sign them for A) identity theft reasons and B) decreasing the resale value on eBay. To that end, the models also *without fail* address the personal message to the person that ordered it by the name on the credit card used to order it.

Um...How many circles have I rambled around in now?

Oh yes. Getting back to the point. All of the above happens, for the reasons you stated and more.

Cheers

I got an e-mail from a guy a few weeks ago asking if I had more photo's of a particular model. I thought it was kind of weird so I asked him how he found my site, he said he didn't really remember. I showed him a few more and he basically said "thanks, do you have any more?" Sounds to me like he just wants pictures of pretty girls for free.

I haven't had anybody offer me money yet.

Got one about a week ago, some dude says he's interested in Glammer photography, blah blah blah....do I have any more images of one particular model, blah blah blah. When he said he was a "fan" of my work, I knew he was some kinda nut! LOL!!

My take is "Ain't seen it? Ain't gonna till everyone else does, too...."

There are some that aren't totally honest in their emails? [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/ooo.gif[/img]

Gee the next thing you'll be telling me is that disposed African Prince that asked for my checking account # isn't really going to share his wealth with me. [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img]

Darn! I thought I finally made the big time. Some guy from VA, see RonC's post, wanted to exchange photos. Said he was a big fan. You mean I'm not going to be famous? Last year I had a guy contact me and ask if I had any nudes of a particular model. He said he would buy them all if I did. I figured he was a nut, so I contacted the model to make sure he wasn't a stalker. Turns out they went to college together and he was looking for some pix of her. No, I didn't send him anything. It would be cool, though, if someone wanted my stuff.....guess it's a long hard road.

I got the same one verbatim. Sent back a thanks, but no thanks. Next came some bad snapshots of a topless woman. No more replies from me.
