I think you have to be a member to see the naked ladies. Everyone was dressed or the image was covered by a content warning. It is work safe for anyone who stumbles upon it. It looks like everyone is from the UK. Some of the comments to models were interesting but Model Mayhem has members that seem more local to me.
That was a funny post, after is as “bad” as “before”, just different.April 4, 2013 at 8:17 pm #8591adsParticipant
Anything on this girls flickr page…tons of selective colour, orange babies with their faces planted in blankets and some AWESOME “frame” jobs…just love the descriptions she adds too! http://www.flickr.com/photos/alessaspics/April 4, 2013 at 8:45 pm #8592dstone81Participant
I know I am coming to this post a lil late but Cameraclicker- I liked the second link you posted and I found myself thinking to myself that I do a lot of those. LOL. Especially the ones about the neighbor kids and the one about family events. Oh and the one about going through a rough part of town and seeing it as a good spot for a session because of the gaffiti. And doing an illegal U-turn to go back to take a picture.April 23, 2013 at 12:19 pm #9122photofriendParticipant
Here’s some fun. This person started as a “photographer” at Sears and decided to become independent. https://www.facebook.com/BethsPortraits/photos_streamApril 23, 2013 at 12:50 pm #9125sceeParticipant
There is just no accounting for taste. People pay literally millions for bad art at auctions every year…it’s no wonder that people will pay dollars for Fauxtography junk. Look at the selfies people take of themselves in front of their toilets and post on facebook…not to mention the thousands of facebook albums dedicated to “sexy” selfies taken in the car while driving. Just pity them, and go after the clients with taste.May 15, 2013 at 1:35 am #9685totemononsenseParticipant
I am a new military spouse, though I have had a long time interest in photography. I started studying in 2007 when I was in college in Japan and bought my first dSLR. Fast forward 6 years later and I am still not 100% comfortable charging for my photos. I see so many military spouse “fauxtographers” that it is honestly disheartening as someone who wants to build my portfolio and learn more every day. I know I am not a professional, yet, but I hope to get there someday. It is definitely hard to build a clientele when you have bored housewives with a P&S and Paint Shop Pro who charge practically nothing for a session.May 25, 2013 at 2:38 pm #10083PJ99212Participant
So THAT’S what I’m fighting! Military spouses. We have an A.F. base near here and there are a ton of $40hr sessions offered.

I guess that peggy doesn’t know you’re not suppose to get close to peoples faces with wide focal lengthsJune 10, 2013 at 1:50 pm #10614
haha.. least she has a prolab !June 10, 2013 at 1:50 pm #10615June 10, 2013 at 1:52 pm #10616June 10, 2013 at 1:55 pm #10617June 10, 2013 at 2:13 pm #10619nesgranParticipant
I don’t think she is too fauxy, just not a good photographer. Sure, there’s some warning bells ringing like having a cover photo of a rebel with a kit lens and not realising wide angle lesnse shouldn’t be used for shooting someone close up but at least she is paying taxes and some of her shots aren’t too bad. I wouldn’t want anyone to hire her for a wedding but she is honest she wants to build her skills and charge a bit excessively for I think ($100/hr)
