I have to admit that I had a couple of situations that were very frustrating. Two photographers had mentioned that they were going to be in the area at the beginning of the month. I immediately asked the who, what, when, where, and everything else to ask about getting a shoot on the calendar. I got literally got vague answers back. Weeks went by and I texted them both again. Nothing. Then I get back from one of them that they did not know that it was Superbowl weekend that the hotel prices were not going to be affordable for him. This was texted back on that THURSDAY before that weekend he had texted initially to work with me. I in this time frame had booked something else that was more solid.
I try to respond pretty quickly to anyone who emails or messages about an assignment. I don’t want to have a bunch of going back and forth to figure out all of the details. This is why I have a booking outline. It takes everything and puts it into one simple outline and then if changes need to be made, we can do it from there, then sign off on that agreement.
With the two instances that I had, I politely said, no thanks and wished them best with them on their careers or hobbies in being a photographer. I always treat my modeling like a business and that will never change.
