THE DANGER IN ANSWERING AMATEUR MODELS WANTED ADS
If you ever see ads for, or are approached by someone who says they are a photographer who would like to photograph you great, it happens and good luck to you, as there are some awesome talented photographers out there.
However. As you will see from the attached press cutting not all is good out there. So. If you really want to be safe and enjoy modeling then at least go to established model/photographer websites where there are genuine photographers who should have an established track record of their past and current work.
If someone says they are a photographer or video person who works professionally then you should also be able to reference them and their work on Google, or other search engines. The golden rule is if they are NOT on Google then they are not in the business - except perhaps in their own heads!
Be health and safety conscious at ALL times and be safe.
