    I'll start off by saying that I love model mayhem because it's an amazing networking tool for photographers that need to get stuff done. Simply amazing.

    But I am soooo tired, of seeing all the crap that you have to filter through to get some decent results.

    You're supposed to be a model, and I see some midget looking, completely overweight beyond the plus size model category, old, raggedy, "what the hell are you doing on here" type models. Besides that, I'd say a good 80% of photographers on there are either creeps or serial killers. Unbelievable.




    I'm just tired of sifting through loads of crap, and wanted to air out. lol

    I know what you mean.

    I was on there for a little bit, but got a little weirded out and deleted my account.
    Also, I kinda felt like I was on a porn site.
    I understand and appreciate artistic nudes, and some of the photos were indeed artistic, but a lot of them were just distasteful.

    And I was really paranoid about the people contacting me about shoots, so I decided to just leave the site.

    Are you thinking they need an 'ugly filter' ?

    +1 on the porn thing. If the good didn't slightly outweigh the bad, I'd be gone too. But I got 3 beautiful models doing a shoot with me the 27th of Feb. lol

    A big one.

    I've heard plenty of valid rants about MM, but bitching about fat/ugly chicks seems a bit over the top. If you can't tell by their profile pic if you should take a closer look and are bogged down sifting through heaps of ugly women, you should probably revisit your workflow for identifying candidates.

    I don't care how talentless or creepy other photographers are as I don't search for them nor do I feel the need to contact them. I certainly don't need to work with them. If 80% are GWC's then good for me.

    If you want a newer site where people with grievances with MM migrated to, check out Model Insider. It's where I'm spending more time. It has a more modern interface, more features and many of the more active and talented photogs that used to frequent MM have landed there.

    Thank you for your candor. Not many people will openly and publicly acknowledge their prejudices. This is truly a breath of fresh air. :er:

    Something that is pretty funny about MM and is not the site fault but when you see a "Model" looking for Photographer, MUA, Hair Stylist for her new portfolio and ask for TFCD LOL. Sometimes I do not mind do the TF because the fact that I love photography but sometimes is enough

    Thank you for expressing your gratitude for my candor in the least creative of sarcastic ways.

    was just taking a gander at the site, never heard of it, and i agree... most of it looks like trash trying to get picked up for Hustler or something...

    guess its kinda like ebay... gotta sift through a bunch of junk until you really find something good.
