Home Forums Am I a Fauxtog? lets go Reply To: lets go


The whole idea of Model Mayhem rubs me the wrong way. I’m sure there are a lot of great photographers and models on there, but I’ve stumbled upon a few older creepy male fauxtogs who shoot nothing but skanky, trashy models and only get likes because the women are half-naked. They use harsh flash and have no visible technical knowledge. There’s a creepy guy who hangs out at the bars in my town and asks girls to do photoshoots of them. He goes to their houses, picks out their clothes, does their hair and makeup, and then takes their pictures and over-edits them. Some of his “models from florida” images look like he superimposed the girl on an ocean background.
