To all the European models who have worked with me, thank you, merci, gracias, gratzie, danke, Спасибо - you are all awesome.
Okay, Americans... what's the deal? Why are so many of you unprofessional and flaky? I know, none of you think that you are flakes, but you are.
How do I know? Here's one way... If you are not willing to give a professional, internationally published photographer your phone number because you don't want them to "bother" you or you think they might be a "stalker", you are a flake.
Speaking as a "professional, internationally published photographer", I'm not going to stalk you. I don't have time to stalk you.
You know who will? Your loser ex-boyfriend. He will stalk you, but you already gave him your number so, that's water under the bridge.
Here's the deal: If I book a shoot (even one for trade), I always show up. I never flake - ever. If you call me, I call you back. I expect the same courtesy.
