What I learned at Model Mayhem

Regarding photography:

  • The photographer owns the copyright and can do whatever he/she wants with the images.
  • Web images should be 72 dpi to prevent download.
  • Shutter speed affects strobe exposure.
  • Dental floss in the butt crack means the model is no longer nude.
  • All professionals reply to all emails regardless of interest level.
  • Photographers charge deposits but don’t pay deposits.
  • Photographers require full commercial releases from TF models but models have to get special written permission to print images or use images on an agency web site.
  • Listing photography gear on the profile adds credibility. Buying an International Photography Award adds even more credibility.
  • It’s illegal to photograph a minor without both parents and a notary public present.
  • People care about how much money photography gear cost.
  • People actually care that a model flaked on a photographer.
  • People will care when I leave Model Mayhem so it’s best to start a thread announcing my departure.
  • Everyone in a TF shoot must work free even if it does not benefit them.
  • $35 kit fee is less expensive than a $35 mua fee.
  • Picture comments mean something.
  • A pervert is a photographer who touches a nude model. A true artist is the same photographer with a body painter profile.
  • A true artist cannot shoot with an escort present.

    You forgot a few.

    Giving mods virtual cookies will get you faster more personal attention.
    If your CAM isn’t answered within 5 minutes, you should start a thread in SR outing everyone involved.
    We do have a search feature. In fact we have three of them. Sendu TFP.me and Google.
    Client? lol. Everyone knows photographers pay models.
    Handbras, caution tape, railroad tracks and angel wings are sure signs of a professional model/photographer.
    Being published in e-zines started by amateur photographers count as legitimate tearsheets.

  • Amazing write-up! This could aid plenty of people find out more about this particular issue. Are you keen to integrate video clips coupled with these? It would absolutely help out. Your conclusion was spot on and thanks to you; I probably won’t have to describe everything to my pals. I can simply direct them here!
