i was looking thru the castings(ny) area and seen a photographer(i can take better pix with my camera phone) and seen his pics and the things he is casting for and i just think its crazy how he is actually on here. i know i know my port is in need of major work. but if you see him its like he is worst then a gwc cause a least a gwc would have a real camera. and i even seen him nake d in a pic with the "model". he asked me before to shoot and i said i will talk to my manager and he said i dont work with ppl with managers and hung up on me.

to the point i know he offers pay(25 an hour) but i want to know how much is your respect worth. i had a girl he worked with and she was very upset cause he had her shoot outside on parked cars in a thong and she said the shoot was the worst (not blaming this guy) but again she should have seen his pics and knew hers would be no different and how much could someone pay you to lose your respect.

sorry for the long post

Seriously.
WTF is this unlicensed "urban management" (from their MySPace) crap?
I couldn't IMAGINE dealing with someone who was "managed" by a bunch of unprofessional phonies like that.

OP, you might want to SERIOUSLY reconsider your career choices.

lol its true, on the MySpace page he doesnt even use correct english. Seems like a joke, someone is obviously trying to boost their own ego, and in his case the term "Fake it til you make it" doesnt work.

We all answered.  If you are signed with these kind of "managers", you will be sent to this kind of castings.  I think no one was surprised.  And that was your answer.

And could you please use some punctuations?

Do you know who Terri Richardson is?

OP, you should have done some research before going public.  This isn't the ploace for pissant managers and management companies.  We may have a lot of amateurs on here but mostly they have a professional attitude and approach to their work.  Cyberpimping is not what we want to encourage.

You have a good body and face and I'm sure that with a little self promotion you could generatoe you own opportunities on here.  Why not try it?

If Myspace must have music, think about having something more enjoyable to the demographic that you want t visit.  Rose Royce's "Car Wash" is in my head I don't know why.

Then don't do it.  Simple as that.  I don't even know why you need to ask the question.  If you don't want to do it, no one can force you.  Someone else will take the job.

i understand what you may be trying to say and i respect that. but i personally dont have a problem with my company. and my company isnt here i am. i am just trying to build my port. they turned this about management. but my manager isnt pimping me in any kind of way.

These kind of "managers" will likely never send anyone anywhere, other than a casting couch.

Mean?  Just telling it like it is.

1)  You are signed with a "manager" which is not a real agency.
2)  Your photos scream amateurs.
3)  You can't even write in simple, clear English.
4)  You come in and complain.

Seriously.  What kind of answers did you expect to get?  Nothing was mean unless you have a preconceived set of answers that you would like to hear.

Yeah they are ass holes around here.

You and Q Flava are alright with me. They do try to give good advice sometimes. Like that one chick said you should get a myspace page with like, Carwash playing in the background.

Which makes like zero sense to me but whatever. I'm drinking Cognac on a Friday Night Bitches!
