Wow… the whole “get skinnier, prettier girls” comment is AWFUL!
Obviously it is awful. Obviously real people hire photographers. But when real people are shopping around for photographers, they don’t want to see pictures of girls in sexy clothing with fat hanging out everywhere. They like to believe they will look as sexy as the girls in the magazines. As sexy as the fake girls. And good photographers can make them look sexy and maybe even do a little retouching to “take the edge off” and there is nothing wrong with taking those photos and making the money off of them. But they don’t belong in your portfolio.
