Just wondering how many have had some resistance with the idea of you being married shooting good looking models?

I'm not married but in a long term relationship. I think that still counts.

I haven't had any problems with this. And to be honest, I can't think of one single reason why it would be a problem.

A relationship needs trust. If your significant other has a problem with you working with models of the opposite sex, it is a sign of trust issues.
Personally, I would never be in a relationship with someone who doesn't trust me. Such a relationship is doomed to fail. It is only a matter of time.

I was shooting models before I met my wife. We are married and I still shoot models, it's never been an issue.

Thanks for the imput. I'm a newbie at shooting and have a few girls that asked me to shoot them. Told my wife my plans and she was cool (32 yrs of marriage). I do sense a little bit of her being uncomfortable though. Maybe bringing her a long......not sure yet.

No resistance at all. Carry your self as a professional as you should be and their is nothing to worry about.

Agreed.....To be honest, not sure this will make sense lol or be believable, but shooting a model and (if I was single) hanging at a bar and checking out a pretty girl is totally different. I'm picture a shot...skin tone and how a shot would turn out. Using my imagination on how to put a spin on the subject? It's all good, thanks for the imput

My missus has a pretty big problem with it. She has some fairly major confidence issues derived from a pretty messed up family and childhood. It's got nothing to do with her not trusting me, but specifically relates to her feelings of unworthiness. Whilst kind of messed up, it's not something with malicious intent, it's simply her inability to see her own beauty in the mirror.

I love my girlie, and would never want to put her through too much stress over something that doesn't mean much to me, so I don't really 'argue' it or whatever. She's all good for me to shoot women professionally (musicians, events, portraits etc.) but just doesn't want me to shoot women specifically for the purpose of them being good looking.

On the plus side, she's actually a damn looker herself, and at 20 years old, she has years of photogenic left in her :D. I love shooting her, and whenever a client wants an idea of what I can do with women, I just flog them some shots of her and they always love it. Besides, I shoot cars for a living, so the discussion really barely comes up.

Very understandable and may be a little bit of her being so young. I think the biggest thing is keeping the women informed and also letting them be a part of it, to an extent. I know that I may want to do risky shots to have a more edgy out come and that's something my would not understand..... nor be interested in.

My wife is cool with the idea. I use our living room as a studio she even comes in while shooting and suggests poses and props

Not an issue. But then 20 years ago my wife modeled for me and assisted at other shoots. She knows when I come home from a shoot sweaty, filthy and exhausted that it's from legitimate work. You don't get that kind of dirty from fooling around.


Thanks for stopping in and having a look.

My current partner has some relationship baggage that causes problems. I took her along to a couple of shoots and she started coming around, once she realised how professional the whole deal was.

However, it only needs one model to make a pass at a photographer in front of his partner to ruin it for everybody. :(
