I'll still send you the list of MM models that are coming so far. (about 25 so far just from MM) - Going to shoot the wedding now, I'll hit ya up with it later tonight or tomorrow.

I also have a talent "agent" that does commercial ads that is planning on making a stop by! (could be good for the photogs as well)

Well, I hope I'm on the list as it all started with the idea from Marko who started with ME and Mia. As we get closer I hope all those who have stated they will be coming ACTUALLY show or have the courtesy to notify the event creator (Marko) that they will not be coming.

I just attended an event on Saturday where at least a dozen models and as many if not more photographers ALL said they were coming. TWO models, ME and one other photographer showed!!!! The event planner and organizer paid $350 to rent a place for the day. SAD!!!! Just so everyone knows.........IF you say you will be somewhere........BE THERE or Call. AND I don't mean calling 30 minutes before, Sheeeeeeeeesh!!! Y'all know MY phone number is on my profile here. A no show, NO call is a guarantee of never being worked with!!!!

Unfortunately, there are always "no-shows", but you are right about a courtesy call going a long way. . .

Yeah, but when I'm driving from 1 to 2+ hours for a shoot, NO-Shows & NO calls are a serious issue with me. So far in a year and a half I've only had 3 total. The professional thing is to exchange phone numbers and confirm the day before.

Sorry I cant make it everyone. That wasnt actually supposed to be announced tho it had been discussed with Marko. But seeing as now everyone knows I wont be attending, may I just say there is a long uncomfortable lsit of reasons why including my house is under serious repair from 2 sudden leaks,  a sudden relative visit that was unexpected...no not aunt flo, aunt Alison lol, and an allergic reaction to carmine (the reason I never have red lipstick on hand for any models who may have noticed that fact)- http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Carmine so my lips look like I have the herpes or some shit right now...not pretty for an MUA to be walking around like that.


so yeahhhhh....embarassing much?

Got room for another photographer?

I'd be driving in from the Salem/Roanoke Co. area, unfortunately without any models.
