I just thought of something. It happened about four years ago, but I want to write it down before I forget for another four years... ;)
I had a confirmed booking with the model. I was to travel 50 miles to her for a half-day booking in her studio flat. Well, it was the late evening of the night before & I sent an e-mail asking if she was still OK for tomorrow? Anyway, I get a response where she says that's she's eaten something dodgy at her brother's & can we rebook another time. I said it wasn't a problem, wished her well. But I never got a date from her.
I checked her profile a few days later before sending her a message & she had feedback from another model & a photographer stating that they all had a really good TF session on the day my shoot had been scheduled for.
I contacted the model & she said that by the afternoon, she had felt better. Yeah right!
Anyway, about eight months later I did eventually with the same model at her home location. The place was small but sufficient for my needs. The shoot itself was a bit rubbish. For a semi-pro she needed directing.
And, for someone who said she was a makeup counter manager at a local department store (My lips are sealed...), I was surprised that someone so pale skinned would have such an orange face? Having a tanned look when you're clothed may suit a lot of people. But not when you're posing nude! Have I ever told you about that model called Brightonorange? No? I will one day. Promise! (Liar, liar...).
So, if a model messes you about the first time, whatever you do, don't book her again.
There again, on just reading the above, I remember driving 100 miles/two hours to find an empty house. It was supposed to be our third shoot. The model later told me she'd gone shopping with her mum! Oh, I was bloody fuming. Five hours of my life just used up like that. But, we had another four shoots after that. The best model I had worked with at that time. Sadly, I don't think she models much these days. Well, she certainly doesn't login to MM, PS possibly.
