Just emailed a model to confirm our shoot tomorrow and got a response that she used her boyfriends laundry detergent and broke out in a crazy rash.

Definitely the first time I've heard that one...In her defense, I have shot with her numerous times in the past and all have been great professional experiences...so I do think it is a legitimate excuse...but just an amusing one.

I've just joined MM ... only recently even considered shooting beauty/fashion type stuff ...

Don't know if it'll work for me ... no-one on MM less than 100mi away! One of the drawbacks of living in the sticks.

Anyway, I'd like to make some contacts so drop by if you're up to it:

I don't know where you are in the valley, but Wikipedia says Golden is near the Columbia Valley listed for your location. I entered Golden, B.C., Canada and set a 100 mile radius, and it showed two models right in Golden. One logged in today, and the other a few weeks ago.

Golden is 90 mins drive from me ... that and Cranbrook/Kimberley, also 90 mins drive ... are the closest contacts to me ...

H8Monday, I am somewhat new to POTN and would like to join Models Mayhem. See that you are a member, so hoping you can answer a couple of questions.
How do I perpare my photos for MM. ie: sizing, protection of copywright, etc. I guess I am asking your workflow when putting photos on MM. I use Adobe CS4 to edit my photos. Open to any advise you will to offer. Thankfully, MVS Photography.

Another reason why I can't stand Model Mayhem. I was browsing again... I know, I keep thinking maybe I'm gonna give this thing a shot :rolleyes:

Anyways, as I'm looking up potential models, I kid you not... I'm reading this chicks profile and she blatently states "I don't take bookings from this site". Are these girls f-ing serious? If you don't take bookings from the site then why are you on there? It never ceases to amaze me some of the moronic things models will write. :rolleyes:

Probably not much worse than ads on TV saying "our food is the best" or a myriad of other stuff. Say, the insurance ads in the sterile white room, where one customer is a competing insurance company's agent. Maybe in MM it's because there's so many profiles coming our way in such a short span of time. One thing I like though, is watching some profiles morph over time and seeing which direction a model's head might be leaning.

Just make your images 72DPI with an average height of around 650 pixels and an average width for the horizontal images around 750 pixels and you'll be able to upload jpgs just fine

It's unfair to single out models. Photographers on MM will also often write stupid things. And it's not just MM, just look at some of the posts here on POTN.

Everyone has their own perspective and reasons for doing things. I try not to judge.

I'm not singling her out... I didn't even mention her name. It's not just her, it's a significant portion of models on that site that have their head gassed. If you go back and read the previous post I made in this thread, then you'll know exactly what I'm talking about.

I'm sure there are some photogs on their being moronic as well. But I'm not on the other side of the table trying to work as a model so I'm not really looking at other photog's profiles. But if it's your production and you're the one paying everyone... you sort of have a right to make whatever demands you want. When a model wants to call the shots AND get paid... I say hell no!! Not on my production.

I have had nothing but good experiences in MM. I had 2 cancellations but with good reason and a weeks notice so had enough time to find replacement.

Don't have anybody from this forum as a friend but feel free to add and I am very friendly.

I've also had nothing but good experiences. I had one complete flake this year. I tend to only shoot with girls who communicate decently and I always have a plan B. If they don't answer my call in the moring then I don't pack up my lights and do whatever it is I have for plan B. Could be hanging out with friends, shooting something else, watching a movie, whatever. If a model can't make it I just shrug and go on with life.

I've met dozens of really cool models and grown a lot as a new photographer this year because of MM.
