Kelp!

I've had a long series of successful shoots with no problems, and most of the people you see on these pages are really quite nice (art models are some of the coolest people you'll ever meet), but you do run into the occasional wanna-be model who manages to do something no model has done before in the 200 successful shoots prior to her.

Today's shoot didn't happen and unfortunately it was the last scheduled shoot before my hiatus, so once I upload the clothed set I did with Fierce that's it. The good news is that the half dozen models I'd put off (who would have loved to have had todays time slot) should help me get the ball rolling pretty fast when I start up again.

Update: For those who asked - basically what happened is that she apparently feels that selling art is evil or something and won't sign a release that allows print sales. I feel like the starving artist thing is literal enough already without doing freebie portrait shoots for beginning models which is what the shoot would have become. This would have been her first studio shoot so I was taking a chance on her as it was.

Now how a woman chose to shoot for a stranger, going over to his house alone and nude, and didn't pay enough attention to his website or modeling website profile to realize that he sells prints, or when I was chatting about print sales and portrait work (where people pay me hundreds of dollars to take their picture) on the drive over that maybe she might fit into one of those categories. Very odd and I really have no explanation for it.

Speaking of which, if anybody reading this doesn't know I sell prints... I sell prints! There are "add to cart" buttons below every picture on the website. Press them early and often!

Oh, I hate those.

I suspect it boils down to wanting to make a dignified excuse for not wanting to show up to model right now.

Oh, no, she was in the studio and was all excited about the shoot until she read the release (which I always make available to models before the shoot, she just never looked).

I don't understand it. I remember when I first worked with you, it was very clear that you'd be selling prints if someone chose to buy them. I didn't have a problem with that. But it was made clear that was what might possibly happen. So why this person didn't realize that, I do not know. Ah well... sorry you missed out on your last day of available shooting. Totally sucks.
