***April Update! I can't beLIEVE I thought about replacing the text below with something more normal! LOL Glad it was just a THOUGHT! UP IT STAYS, and my flake list gets loooooooooooooooonger***
Regarding TF shoots, for the time being, this photog has decided to operate just as the TYPICAL model does. With that in mind, here’s how things will go!
If you want a shoot with me, it would be best if YOU plan 95% of everything for us (even if I came to you asking for the shoot). You should schedule the time, arrange location(s), determine your own looks and outfits, and tell me what special equipment I should bring to the shoot. E-mail and text me so we can discuss our plans in detail over several days. I expect that you take some time after work and on your weekends to scout various locations and research the best time(s) for us to be there. I will make sure that my correspondence with you is irregular, yet, upbeat and excited (after all, I am thrilled at the opportunity to shoot with you!). I will even tell you that I have this sexy purple lens hood and strappy earth toned flash gel that you will LOVE, just to make sure you’re as excited about the shoot as I am.
Three to five days before our shoot, I promise not to respond to your e-mails or text messages, no matter how much you need for me to confirm final plans with you. 12 to 8 hours before our shoot (depending on how much effort I know you will have put into getting our shoot set up), I'll make sure to let you know that I can't shoot on that day because of any single or combination of the following “reasons":
- I am not feeling well, or
- My car had to go in the shop, or
- My barber wasn't available the night before as planned (and I can't shoot w/o a fresh cut), or
- My camera batteries mysteriously all went to empty, or
- My favorite 4th cousin from Lima is in town for the weekend (unexpectedly) and I can't miss him, or
- My babysitter can't make it, or
- Last night was really long and I won't be at my best, or
- It's going to be too hot, cold, windy, sunny, cloudy, and/or perfect to shoot, or
- I can't start until 11am... then 4pm... then 8pm.... then I can't get off of ‘work’ until 11pm.
I will then complete our shoot by ending our communication with the following text message: "I’m really sorry, can we reschedule? I HOPE YOU UNDERSTAND! THANKS!"
OR... if you prefer, I just won't respond at all. Just let me know which works better for you.
Either way, a few days later, I promise to post some really REALLY decent (but not great) photos in my MM port that I took with another model AT the exclusive hidden location you told me you wanted to shoot at, which were taken the day after our scheduled shoot. Or at the very least, I’ll post how much fun I had all day at my friend’s cookout (on the day we were supposed to shoot) on my Facebook page. Oopsie!
Thank you for taking the time to read my profile. Let's shoot soon! *smiley face*
P.S. I will put my normal profile text back up when and if I ever work with a model from here who doesn't pull the crap mentioned above.
Leave a TAG if you're a photog who can laugh and or identify! Leave a tag if you're a model who can assure us that you are the antithesis of all of this (and do tell why!).
