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...
