Although it sounds like this person is a flake and would never show anyway. If they were serious I don't care if they bring the SWAT team with them as long as they can stay out of the way and keep quiet.

just my 2 cents
Jim

Just curious, how would you feel if a prospect didn't even want to see your portfolio, because somebody else could have shot them ...? Would you work with people that don't trust you?

I stated that I felt the person in question was a flake, I would venture to guess that they never planned to meet or have photos of any sort taken. I would further guess that the "can I bring my police friend' was just an attempt at more chain pulling/ball breaking. But I most likely would have responded as I stated before.

she wants a "police officer" at the shoot?
id be like totally, absolutly! give me his name and badge number so i can contact the department and verify his idenity.
when he is verified, welcome him with open arms and put him right to work holding lights at weird angles.
make him do things that will make her laugh.

you will get some amazing shots and she will have the expirence of a life time...

cheers!

^^ - Absolutely

As long you verify the identity, I don't see a problem. For these rather intimate type of shoots, I'm glad the client is bringing along someone (as long as the someone doesn't turn out to be a nightmare nuisance).

The answer is there a few posts up - She flaked. Could have been 'flakey' all along and was just testing the waters.

Subscribed to this thread. I'm sure the tips here would help me out if a similar situation would arrive in the future.

So what if she brings a officer to the shoot, hell I bring one every so often since my wife comes and helps me on shoots and she is a police officer its works out great for everyone. Seeing what my wife deals with at work as a Special Victims Detective and the horror stories of the constant false accusations, one such accusation is from a photo situation in a studio setting, that turned out to be entirely fabricated. I would welcome the escort being a police officer.

Quote $2,900 for the session, $200 for each shot printed at no smaller than 11x14, no digital files.

Seriously, quote really high, then she walks, you're good.

Everyone gives her credit for 'protecting' herself, and in this case you too have no idea who you're dealing with, why she wants a cop there, what could happen to YOU....... Walk by quoting so high she goes away.

THIS.

I allow escorts on my shoots whenever the model wants one (I thinks that's been 2 of about 50) and for a Boudoir session with someone I've never met, I'd PAY the cop to be there.

The chance of her being a problem is much higher than the cop. Accusations (false or not) are page one. Exonerations go on page 64 under the tire ads.
