This kind of lack of professionalism gives photographers a bad name

I had the privilege to work with professional model a few months ago. She was professional, took direction very well, and is extremely photogenic. Even with all this, she has been treated rather shabbily by a different photographer at a different photoshoot. “S” was told that for all her work on the day, this fauxtographer told her she wasn’t going to be paid, as he only pays large breasted models, but he would give her ‘time for prints’.

“S” has her own portfolio, and doesn’t need freebies. (I know this feeling only too well. I don’t need a photo credit, or portfolio freebies, as I have over 700gbs of photo, more than enough for a portfolio). “S” works hard, deserved to be paid for her time, as her time is valuable. She did not deserve this dismissive jackass saying that to her.

This guy really needs to be named and shamed. I won’t nag “S” about it, but he does need to be called out for this.
