Careful With Modelmayhem
I won’t mention any usernames, not that it would matter if I did, as many shady and unprofessional individuals will change their names on the site or simply remove their profile. This is kind of like the eBay or Craigslist of the modeling world but model mayhem nowadays is far more corrupt than it was a few years ago. So much deception. Just use common sense. There’s bad photographers and bad models. What I really don’t like or individuals and photographers who lie and renege on the contract. Be prepared to take a big risk if you’re doing time for print as there are many photographers or fake photographers who will not give the model their work as in their photos. My last interactions on this site we’re very creepy and shaky and at that point I closed my account. If you want to model I think that they’re safer venues of finding work. And no one should ever be pressured into having to take their clothes off, especially if not being paid to do so. For the professional this is actual work. The negative reviews about the experiences gleaned from this venue are truthful in most cases. I would refer people to look into agencies but also tell them to do just as careful researches there’s a lot of corrupt agencies out there also. Model mayhem cannot be responsible for other people’s decisions and choices but I don’t think they’re that committed to safety. Nobody on this website is vetted. They can be anybody. There is no accountability. Steer clear of people on this site who try to book you on a body painting session. Make very clear what the physical boundaries are. If anybody acts out of line leave if you can. A lot of so called victims don’t contact the authorities because they’re afraid of being blamed. Almost 9 out of 10 photographers that I had virtual interactions with we’re not actual professionals and were major red flags. Bring a friend with you and if you can’t do that tell others where you are. Do not attempt to use this site if you don’t have a functional creep radar. May as well as women and any age can be tempting to a predator. It’s no laughing matter.
