    Can others edit my Photos:
    Photos OK to edit
    So what is the $60.00 for? If that the model fee and do they sigh a release? For the fee do we get a one-on-pne time? Why are the other photographers listed as a plus?

    I've been a photographer for a number of years, I was also in the modeling business in the early 80's. This has scam written all over it. Now if this was a workshop, that may be a different story.

    I wouldn't necessarily call it a "scam"....just a silly sales attempt. I mean, you should never have to pay. Today there are thousands of people who think they are models that would pay you for the chance to have their pics professionally (even semi-professionally) made.

    More power to these guys if they can get people to come, no one's forcing anyone.

    I call it scam. There's been many professional news write ups and Better Business Bureau reports that refer to this type of thing as a scam.

    I think that's kinda harsh. Not every beginning photographer is all that great at getting decent models. If you can, then there's no need for you to go, but I don't see an issue if someone wants to.

    Money makes the world go around. I don't see that 60 bucks is an unreasonable amount to pay for a beginner to go spend a day taking pictures of some attractive models and I'm not going to fault anyone for trying to make a buck off it.

    If it's not as advertised, then that's different. Buyer beware.

    I'm not sure about the whole spamming the forum thing, though.

    I think that's a bit unrealistic given the location of the thing.

    And I'm not a big proponent of either a photographer or model giving away their services for free. At the very least, someone should get a token cup of coffee.
