Quote from PaulManuell
Of course a photographer's looks don't matter; as long as you behave in a professional and respectful manner,




Uh huh. If you heard the amount of models I've heard say "so glad you don't look like all the other old fat photographers" cos, you know, I dont.

Of course looks matter. When I was a (half) handsome young man I had no problems getting young ladies to model for me. Now the response is more likely to be "BigEarsPix is a naughty person off you fat dirty old pervert".

I'd have thought only having 4 profile photos after 10 years' membership would be a tad off putting too.

Really? I'd have thought that 40 positive recommendations going back eight years, including from a few of the best models to have graced this site over the last decade, would more than compensate for only having a handful portfolio images on display (unless, of course, one was actively seeking payment from models for professional photography packages).

I've never found looking like Brad Pitt to be an issue on shoots..... mainly because I look nothing like him.

I'm not sure why the photographer's looks should matter to a model, but I have noticed that on the occasions I've seen models talking about photographers who contacted them that they didn't want to work with, they would slag off the looks of the tog as well as their work in a 'they're creepy' way if said togs were 'old' (basically over 50) and/or fat. E.G., 'I had a look at the guy's pics, they're crap so I'm not gonna work with him, and he's a fat old man anyway lol' type talk.
A dry sponge is a happy sponge.
