If you are interested in shooting with me, thanks! Please just send me a message. I will respond kindly to you regardless of my interest. That's just good manners.
If I contact you about shooting with me, but haven't met you yet, it means there is something about you that I think is interesting and we could create some nice work together. I will not have details. I might have a vague idea.
I don't send requests lightly. If I contact you, I'm serious about shooting with you. So if I contact you about shooting with me and you are not interested, it's cool, please just let me know, I won't bother you again. Otherwise, I'll assume you didn't receive my request and try again.
If I send you a FR, it's because I like your style/talent/abilities and I see (hopefully) a future project involving you. It is meant as a sincere request.
The model's ideas and goals are very important to me. That's why I prefer to meet for coffee first, so that can each get an idea of what the other is looking for. I have my own vision, of course, but that doesn't keep me from doing my best to deliver work we can both be very proud of.
