Send them to me. You have shot some great models and I always like to look at other people's work for any further inspiration...


If I do decide to pass them over to another person, I will be in touch. Seriously.

Got me thinking . When is a good age to give up glamour. At 62 years old I was thinking about getting in to it again. Will I seem like a dirty old man.

I thought of this long ago, why when I shoot with a model I give them a basic edit copy of all images taken on a shoot so when I'm dead and gone my images live on
When going through Hell don't stop!

They think we're dirty old men when we're in our thirties, I found out over a decade ago. One model told me during a shoot, "a typical photographer is a fat, sweaty, perv". I looked up and said, I'm not fat. I laughed, and she didn't. This model was a bit of a misery guts anyway.

When I'm dead, I don't think my images will live on. But I'm not bothered, I won't be here.

The average age of glamour photographers must be over 55. Don't worry you won't be singled out. Most models think any photographer over the age of 30 is a dirty old man. smiley

Wrote my Will last year aged 77.
Have arranged that another photographer destroy every digital picture I have made. Prints, digitally stored and on websites such as this. In return he gets all my photo, studio and computing kit.
My family have no interest in my pictures having described what I do as steriotypes, none of my stuff is museum quality or strong enough for porn sites therefore valuless.
This must be an increasing problem for other photographers as I found it to be. Quite happy with my solution.
A little help is worth a lot of sympathy.

Thats in interesting topic. I have lost over 6000 slides to burglers and similar crap, Now is a terabite digitals around. I am the only one who looks at them, because images are kind of worthless today, to many.

Not many people look at images anymore, too much flooded of them. And comes a good one up they do not notice it, they do not see well.

So, me too, shall I start deleting? Why do I carry them from one computer generation to the next (3 1/2" to zip drive to CD to DVD to Tera drive, what next?) many older formats long gone and unreadable?

I know them all, can tell you where I made them and the road to there nearly with closed eyes. Who else looks at them? Its my memory what is visible, where I was, what I have seen, or experinced if that is to see.
I think we should keep the ones WE find them worth to be found in hundred years, and bin the rest, although that may be a wrong selection ...
And the rest? I had my fun at the time, but no longer with them. I cannot afford a new computer, just for keeping more images nobody will look at, like my 6000 lost slides, with many holiday images (I kept only "worthy" slides), I went to holidays for photographing, some were documentation, some just landscapes, and always trying to find outstanding images. Lost, my kids cannot see them, they have no idea anymore what I have seen and what about I would like to show them ...
Yes, today there is google, many places with street view, and there I can find my views again, a few at least. And online photos from others of similar locations, situations, just not MY ONES. Just by sitting here in front of a 32" HD screen, better resolution than my old images, sometimes.

Maybe tell someone here what you have, and let them take them, filter it, and keep what they think is good. And the rest turns to dust, like all what gets old. You had your fun, and you have still your memories about all of them. Nobody can take that away.
The problem is, if its slides you need a projector, which I still have, Kindermann with a spare bulb in it. is it digital it must be on modern discs, my old PC has still a 3 1/2" disc, but many disk have reading errors after that long time.If you have cupboards full of prints, give them the cupboards too, if they have the space. Or, not thought that to an end, put all up into a cloud and allow public access to all (view only) and leave it to the next worldwide computer crash what survives and what not ...

Does not seem to have been an issue for Tony Nutley after supposedly retiring Can't say I have ever given it a thought either. People judge you by how you behave not your age.
