So what is it about photographers living up the idiot,sleezy or what ever other negitive profile Hollywood puts on us? I read too many stories on here about jerks, idiots and boneheads for it to be made-up by some airhead in Hollywood. What is it about this art that draws them? comments please.

Pretty easy answer IMO...The internet and digital technology have made it easier for any Tom, **** or Harry to "lure" models to a shoot. I shot over 125 models last year, and I have asked many of them if they have "horror" stories. Most of them that have shot with 5 or more togs have ALL said they have met a goofball...

I think the net and technology has made it easier for those who simply want to get a girl nekkid and not improve as a photographer. I get emailed DAILY from a photographer who wants me to send sensual pics of my wife to him. He acts as if he wants critiques on his photos in exchange for photos of my wife. I have told him repeatedly that I do not share those images with anyone out of respect for her, still he keeps asking. I finally spam blocked him last night. If he is barraging me, a male like that...I just wonder how relentless he is with young and aspiring models who might fall prey to those deceptive traps...

I do shoot nudes and post MANY of them here...my hope is that people see that I am trying to become a good photographer and not just "take pictures of nekkid purty girls"...

There are creeps everywhere? Why is it when a photographer is one, he is "fulfilling a stereotype" but when a clergy member or teacher or coach is one, "everyone is shocked"?

Give me a break!

Totally agree. I've witnessed much worse behavior in other industries/professions than I've ever heard about in photography (excluding the murder cases). The worst that I personally witnessed on a regular basis was in the mortgage/banking industry. Especially when the VPs from major banks used to come visit us.

Let's face it, a digital camera gives someone instant gratification for pervs, wich there are a ton of out there. Remember, someone with a camera dosn't make them a photographer, unless you are the media.
