    Question Onemodelplace

    Why is it that almost everyone on Onemodelplace is either very ugly or a wannabe porn star? Kinda odd, really. There are a couple decent looking TFP people, but in general the pickings seem kinda slim....anyone else have similar feelings?

    well... thats what a lot of models are.... there are a lot more ugly people in the world than stunningly beautiful/handsome people.... so i guess therefore, there are going to be more ugly people who want to be models... just like there are more ugly people who want to be dentists... just cuz theres more of them in general...

    Max, Im sure you're gorgeous.

    Who said models have to be beautiful?

    But to answer your question: If they were beautiful enough to be models on their own they wouldn't need onemodeplace, would they?

    lol...good point. But not necessarily true. I just look through it and everyone is either extremely ugly or in a porn star pose. I'm sure there are some normal people on there, I'm just having trouble finding them.

    <----------------- and can't you tell that I'm gorgeous?

    High end models use agencies, not free web sites.

    A lot of 'models' look pretty ordinary...it's the job of the photographer, hair/make-up artist & post production to make them look stunning.

    That being said, I've seen many beautiful models on there. Of course I like to think any anybody can be beautiful in their own way.

    i used onemodelplace once and agree with you about the slim pickins and mostly porn star wanna bes, however, i do know 1 model who has made it large through onemodelplace, and one photog who has as well.

    and yeah, its mostly trash, i did a shoot with a girl who was on it . . . but i sidesteped them bc it had a lnk to her myspace.


    and she was pretty normal looking

    I fully respect your thoughts. Have to say that I never put labels on people. I am proud to have all and anyone in front of my camera.

    It's all a matter of being able to 'weed out' the wannabes... factor in location and it *can be* slim pickings. What I mean is, you're far less likely to find a "model-worthy" model in, say, rural Kansas on OMP, MM or any of the other similar sites, than you are in Chicago, Miami, NYC or any other "major market".

    I have seen and worked with some incredible talent from OMP and MM alike (as a model). I've also seen ports that make me scrath my head and wonder, "WTH is this person doing here?!".

    Then again, what one person thinks is beautiful another may not.

    Both are free (at least OMP is for models--MM definitely is).

    Personally, I like MM better--easier to naviagate, more active forums, better communication options (messages, tags, pic comments).

    I'm 178099 on MM
