Just some quick advice to models with the flatter chest, please don't consider getting a boob job because they just don't work and I wont work with models who have had this modification done. I seek beauty in nature and silicone is an artificial substance not ordinarily to be found within the human body. Thank you!

I think this is something you should probably note in your profile if you really have an issue with it (I haven't read your profile so I have no idea if you've already done this).  I'm not sure what creating a topic about it will do for you besides striking up a debate I imagine.

Seriously just stop telling models what to do.  This is the second thread I've seen you start today trying to tell models what to do. 

You are not the only photographer on here.  And not all models have the same goals as you.

I personally don't care for most body modifications, from piercings to tattoos and of course any plastic surgery.  But I am smart enough to know that there are enough people who do appreciate those things, either as the person getting them, or the person taking the picture, that its none of my business to tell them.

If a model asks me, "would you still shoot me if I....." I will tell her, but other than that its none of my business, and none of yours.

Photographers! No paternalistic rants in the model forum about how your personal preference should be universal truth.

Thanks!

You can't control the actions of others. Just find those who are most in tune with your wavelength.

Telling people not to get boob jobs or to have color avatars just makes you look silly and won't change the actions of others.

You seem to like to tell models what to do. Here is the thing, if you dont like it, dont work with models with fake boobs! it really is as simple as that! I'm just going to go ahead and grab the popcorn.

Well wait...so I have naturally big boobs which I intend to get lifted...that is technically a boob job. What you're saying in I shouldn't do something that will help not only my self esteem but modeling because you don't like it? That's just silly tongue

Dude, you are on a roll in the forums today! You should definitely write a book on modeling with all this great advice...

So, your first thread was "Models: No B&W Images (for your avatar). Now you're telling models to not get implants.

How about this...

"Arrogant and Bored Photographers: Keep it to your fucking self."

Yes, so stay tuned for the "Models: No Tattoos!" thread he's in the process of writing.

Amazing that someone who claims to be so busy that they don't have time to click on an avatar to view the model's portfolio images would have no problem wasting time in the forums dispensing a self-absorbed How To Guide on Modeling.

That is all anybody needs to know.

I don't particularly favour enhanced breasts either but what I prefer to do is to look at the portfolio of models I'm thinking of working with and make my mind up based on their overall look, not my personal feeling about the merits (or otherwise) of surgery.

It really depends on the genre you're doing!

Getting implants might lower to zero your possibility of getting art nudes and fashion gigs, but - at the same time - could be a very good bonus when shooting swimsuit and glamour.

To each their own, right? smile

Oh I think I just died a little inside. I will have to have my tattoo surgically removed to appease him. Whatever will I do.

As everyone else has already said, its a matter of personal preference and you cannot just come on and tell models what to do, it makes you look like an idiot to be fair!

Everyone is free to do what they wish to their own image. Also, have you tried be a flat chested girl, none of the tops your friends wear fitting you and constantly feeling like you aren't feminine. I'm not saying all flat chested women feel the same, a lot are happy with it and I think they are just as womanly but if a woman wants to make herself feel better then she should have the right to do it without judgement.

I suggest you keep your opinions to yourself in a more professional manner because you have just lost the respect of a lot of models on here (implant wearers and non alike).

Sounds good. Let me go get DD implants.
