So I joined a new modeling site recently just b/c the models weren't that decent and I just wanted to get on their top ten list... lol

Anyways - I posted on the site that I was only accepting paid assignments and to please respect that and not contact me about TFP.... *i did this b/c the photographers on this site aren't that great... (that I saw)*

Anyhoo.. got an email from a photographer asking to shoot and I told him that "Sure... I'll shoot with you... My rates start at $200/hr." He wrote in return that "his were $250.00 so we could just call it even..." I'm sorry, but I looked at his portfolio and there is NO way that I would EVER pay to shoot with him...Considering that I've yet to pay any photographer that I've worked with..

So anyhoo...I told him that if it was a "even trade" then that'd be considered tfp, so like my account on that site says, "i'd not be interested in shooting tfp and that i hoped he had a great 2006."

So he wrote me back... here's what he said... and I thought you'd have a laugh...

"Your portfolio lacks variety and impact. That's why I contacted you. You appear to have a lot going for you but you could do better with your pic selection."

So anyways - I looked at his pictures again and all he had was nude and swimsuit stuff and the lighting was TERRIBLE!! He's obviously never shot in a studio ever either and his stuff was just...terrible... location wasn't good either...

So I wrote him about other sites to see my work on... and talk to me after he sees my "other variety of shots"....

Here's what he wrote back saying:

"I'll give you that you have a good figure for photographic modeling but I'm
not sure of the face. Those portraits recently done leave a lot to be desired. Caldwell seems to do your best portrait work. Your other sites are much better as far as variety goes. You have a few good shots there. Mostly implied stuff.

Those umbrella shots are for what? Talk about looking stupid.

I never have shot in a Hotel although there are some Hotel lobby's I could
do wonders with you. No need of that though with my access to many great
photographic locations.

Just remember beauty is in the eyes of the beholder. So I'm sure there's
someone out there that really likes your photographs. But super model now
really. I will follow your progress and I'll bet you a shoot with me that
you won't be a super model by the year 2007. You win I pay the price. I win
you shoot with me for the hell of it."

So anyways - then I wrote him saying that he had issues....lots of issues....and he just wrote back saying "GOTCHA :-)"

Just thought ya'll would get a kick out of that!! [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/smile.gif[/img]

Let me know what you think..... lol

(The following, every single sentence, is sarcasm...)

Aw come on Tiff. You can't appreciate a real, pro, photographer taking time out of his busy schedule to not only offer you his services on a TFP basis, but to also care enough about your professional career to take additional time and give you constructive criticism that is sure to catapult you onto the cover of Vogue? Sheesh, you are one ungrateful person.

That's a tough break, I'm sure you're crushed.

I'm with Stan, I'll bet he's cooking up an umbrella & slicker shoot right now.
