Today I’m thinking about what happens to people? Why they didn’t respect others, their time and work?
Yesterday I should have had a photoshoot. All planned. The girl confirmed the time. I had to drive to another city for this shoot. I like to come earlier to check on the best spots for the shots. So I was there one hour before. Checked the whole location, the light was just gorgeous. I was looking forward to meet the girl. But when the time came, She didn’t show up. I waited for some time and then I wrote a message to her. She read it, but chose not to reply. I wrote another one. She didn’t replied either. It happens sometimes that girls cancel the shoot. It is Ok. But just because the shoot is TFP, it doesn’t give you the right to treat photographer as nothing. It is disrespectful and arrogant. Many people think that to be a photographer means to just press the button. Few people understand that good result is not just the photoshoot itself, it is all the time before and after as well. I used the time to find the cloths (Model didn’t have anything nor dresses nor shoes that could be used), I planned the theme, it took me 3 hours to come to another city, wait for her and drive back. I didn’t even get any words of excuse from that girl. So yes, I have the full right to be frustrated. Totally disrespectful and arrogant person.
So, girls, you who ask me to stand a model for me: I’m very serious with what I do and I use my time for that to get the very good result for both of us. TFP is not just a game or a joke. Lets respect each others work and time. ❤️🌸
