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.


But how would those models know how old the photographers are and what they look like if they've not worked with them? I've never once been asked my age or to provide a photo of myself when booking shoots here or elsewhere.

It's Facebook where I've seen such remarks made, and people tend to have at least one or two pics of themselves on there, even if it's not their personal page.

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.



I was hoping the models did not notice how old and fat I am!!! Cos, you know, I am.
As in life, so in a game of hazard, skill will make something of the worst of throws.

Ah, I see. I'm not on there or any other social media sites so that never occurred to me.

I would respectfully suggest, from the viewpoint of most young models. 95 per cent of photographers on these sites are "old and fat!"

Well I'm in that 5% and simply fat
I prefer not to think before I speak. I like being just as surprised as everyone else by what comes out of my mouth.

You are the lucky one. Best not to be on any of them so you cannot see what they are saying about you! frown
 
I’m sorry about the white jacket with ties at the back. My doctor says I’ve made excellent progress and I will be released from Broadmoor on Tuesday; fancy a shoot on Wednesday!?

I'm short fat and ugly, although I do have a knack of making models laugh.

Well I accidentally (honestly!) picked up a pair of my wife's size 12  jeans the other day - and apart from the length they were fine - so I guess I'm in the 5%! 
(I'm ignoring the "old"  )
