Greyroamer's Profile Picture

For those on the cosplay community who are not aware of this (how?), a cosplay photographer has been exposed as a hell of a creeper per this link…
And this Link…

In light of this incident I need to speak my piece on this situation and something some people may not be aware of. For those who may be familiar with what I am about to say, excuse me for preaching to the choir.
To begin with, as many of you know, I largely do portrait photography in a variety of subjects which include, casual, fashion, cosplay and nude. One thing to remember is, no matter the subject, if the model wants to bring an escort, don’t bitch, shut up and let them! And it may do good to have an assistant with you for more than one reason, outside of being an assistant, you may need backup in case things get hairy. At one point, I worked with a model who was on Model Mayhem and reached out to me and work with her. At that time, I had a studio to work with and I suggested using the studio, escort included and she blew off that idea in favor of using the hotel room she was staying at. A ton of red flags were waving on that one and I had a friend come along to be sure nothing shady was going on! 
*Side note here, As with any session that involves nudity, be sure to see and record their ID so you are not blindly walking in to jail cell with a guy named Bubba who thinks you would make a nice pet!* 
After the session, I looked up her name and I found out that the model had a criminal record. Later on, I made mention of the incident to another model and she joked “Model Mayhem! Where the PHOTOGRAPHERS need an escort!” 
Another thing to keep in mind is respect the model, not matter the subject matter! If I need to elaborate, then Leroy Jethro Gibbs will be visiting you to smack you in the back of the head.
Now here is something that I discovered a few years back that is a little more subtle, Naked is relative, naked doesn’t mean you have to have no clothes on. When I first notice major cosplaying on or about 2000, I worked a session with a group of cosplayers, I thought a couple of the cosplayers would do well in a session wearing something fashionable like at a party or casual like what they would wear around school or work. I suggested this to the cosplayers in question and they immediately balked at the idea. I didn’t press the matter and I moved on and I have still worked with them afterwards. It wasn’t until I worked with a nude model who stated she felt more comfortable posing nude over posing clothed that it drove he point home even further how people have different tastes, fears and other feelings in different matters. You can be dressed to the nines and yet feel naked depending on the situation. The fact is that if the person feels uneasy about something, back away! 
In my book, when it comes to nude photography, I will only work such a session if (A) the model is a professional nude model or (B) the person in question says “I would like to pose nude”. Otherwise, I will just go with the flow and ALWAYS respect the model! If the cosplayer approaches you to do a session in more casual or fashionable dress, then accept if you want to go in that direction. Don't press them for it!
No doubt there is more to say, but this is what is entering my mind right now. I hope I have given you readers something to think about.
