I agree and disagree. Here is my take on it, for the two cents it may not even be worth. I understand that while on a shoot, there are cases where the escort can be a distraction for the model, ie a boy friend. But with that said, the escort can be in the other room if it is appearant that they are being a distraction. Mom's can sometimes create the same issue. In the majority of cases I have experienced, the escorts are rarely a problem. Actually they make great reflector holders and elimenates the need for an assistant. So was this photographer out of line? To a degree yes. If this photographer did not like the terms you laid out, they should have just skipped your profile and moved on. Your convictions are your own and should be respected. Atleast if they felt that strongly about it, a discussion and possible compromise may have been reached, but preaching,..... well that really was not all that necessary or helpful, especially in this situation. Again, just my 2 cents.
