hi !


i thought i would start a forum post on people that have contacted u and pulled no shows in Vancouver this is pain in the ass for people that try to organize shoot and makeup artist / stylist.

so as its stands i hope this catches on as people that stand u up and waste your time should be pointed out some how so they don't waste others time as well !

It's called outing and not permitted.
You can, however, put a "not recommended" list on your profile with the MM numbers only.
Good to see you removed the numbers from this thread.

Last minute cancellations and no call/no shows has happened to pretty much all of us. It's the main reason I will rarely even so much as consider bringing in a MUA for untested llamas.

My flake / no show rate is less than 5%.

The way I do this is by only setting up & confirm shooting dates/times by phone.

On the shooting day I call/text to confirm about 2 hrs prior.

Been there done that, then 1/2 hour before the grandma dies or 1/2 hour later than shooting time the cell phone died.

Plan,plan,confirm,confirm,confirm call,text,email,text and confirm again then fizzle sad , even on some paid gigs.

As much as I like to shoot pretty women, I actually got more interested in doing photo walks,not as stressed out as waiting to see if your booked appointment will show or not.

In my experience, Vancouver is alright. A lot of time spent on scheduling, but I rarely got stood up after heading out.

as it stands i would much rather a person say no then yes and the ability of been able to say yes and not show with having no penalty other wise stated is kinda junk even at 5% of the time could end up costly !
