Answering a Reader Question #217
Also, should male models be careful of shady female photographers, or sleazy girls with cameras? Because I've been hearing from a lot of male models about them and that they were complaining about female photographers just taking photos of guys, even in an inappropriate matter which made them feel uncomfortable, behaving in inappropriate ways, and using their photos without their consent and how they had violent confrontations with them and called them nasty names like slut, tramp, whore, etc. especially when these female photographers were ranging from the later teens to middle age and even teenage male models had violent and destructive arguments with them as well. Believe it or not, there could be shady female photographers, or clients out there and some male models will just deal with them through violence and insults.
All models, regardless of gender, should exercise caution when dealing with photographers. There are definitely shady female photographers out there, but GWCs (guys with cameras) tend to get more attention because these types of encounters occur more than the other way around. Of course, that doesn't mean male models should let their guards down either. Both male and female models should do their homework and research the credibility of any photographer they plan on working with. This includes getting references from models the photographer in question has worked with in the past and arranging a face-to-face meeting during the day in a public place. The same goes for interacting with clients as well.
