With all the threads about non-responders I was curious to know what the strangest/funniest initial contact that some models have gotten from photographers who are requesting to shoot with them?

Go!

I hope there was a note attached to his penis explaining the details of the shoot.

OMG! I was going to say that same thing! It's really weird when the text they provide is friendly, but not overly so and is professional in tone... Then out of no where... Dick pics.

I once had a conversation with a very established photographer, who wanted to do a series (with me wearing clothes, so not even nude) with me for a gallery exhibit... and in the middle of the conversation, it went something like this

"so I would like to have the series done in 3 months or so, so that it is ready in time. by the way, would you like to see me masturbate on cam?. Oh and I have found a great stylist for the shoot, it's going to be amazing"

right...

Yes, I have been texted one of those as well.  Needless to say I didn't go through with that shoot.

I would have to go back pretty far to find the weirdest ones, but here's a few from the more recent past:

Hi! how are you? what do you think we work future?

If you are and can work in LA. ,I ll be happy to talk to you.

Would love to have my way with you...

I fucking love your images, lets shoot!

if you'd like to meet someone new, i'd much rather meet you in person...

(this was an initial message from somebody I'd never contacted before).

This doesn't compare with "penispictures" but I did have a local model from back in the day when I was on omp and the entirety of the initial communication was:

"I really want to do porn and I'm obsessed with McDonalds."

I'd love to say I'm paraphrasing but it really was that abrupt. I have no idea if she wanted some crossover of those two industries...like posing with a Big Mac stuffed in her muff...

I didn't follow up.

No, I'm sure it's not too grown up. Highly unlikely. But I absolutely love the way you used the word "penis" as a verb there.

"Hey baby...I'm going to penis you some pics. Holla back atcha boy."

I guess they felt calling it comedy was less intimidating or offensive than calling it a fetish project.

I'm guessing that would be Slapstick Comedy? (thank you folks, I'll be here all week. Be sure to tip your staff*).

*No pun intended using the word staff.

I don't think kicking guys in the nuts is funny, but I just couldn't stop laughing at this offer. big_smile

Go!

Subject: Hey Girl!

....I am not your BFF, nor are we related. If you want to collaborate in any form, TF/Paid/Whatever...please be proper about the little things, including titles. When your in a professional setting (even online), please remain so.

I don't walk into my day job and tell my boss, "sup!", in place of "hi/good morning/how are you"

ps- this artist has few photos and is an obvious newbie. No big deal. But for future reference, don't be so ...casual?

Damn my shitty fast typing without reading before posting......
As punishment I shall sit and think of how penis I am.

C/P of message received, with added commentary from moi in brackets. From another site thank god...


I am looking for models to boost my portfolio (fine so far), but since so many of you models are so stuck up you dont answer any message someone told me I have to pay (no-one responding, huh? Seem to be a little more upset than any grown man should be over a couple of unanswered messages, especially for a business proposition), so I want your rates, and if your a stuck up b***h (I blanked the word, not him) and dont pm me back I will put you on my flake list to show everyone I know so you better message back
(Name omitted)

There have also been the obligatory penis shots, invitations to 'Skype together... You know, see where things go', requests to engage in threesomes with couples I do not know and one marriage proposal from a Belizian gentleman who was coming to the UK for training with the British army and wanted to take me back with him.
