Let me start off by saying I value my time that God has given me here on this Earth. I’m 26 and I cannot believe how fast time has already gone by. On top of that they say the older you get the faster time goes by. I believe it. Lately I have been asking a few people I have come across if they want to do a free photo shoot with me. I’m doing it for several reasons. Of course, in hopes to get my name out but also as another means and excuse to meet new people. I know a lot of people. I love people! I am a people person!. To get back to the point lately I have been asking a few people if they’d be interested in doing a free photo shoot with me. That takes a lot for me to offer up my services for free. When I do a free shoot I offer up a lot of valuable time, but in order for hopes to get my name out there. As some of you know my passion is landscape but with winter here and it being cold and miserable outside I figured it would be a good time to improve my portraits! I am starting to get frustrated though. It takes time for me to find people. I love it when a person tells me yes and they are willing to model for me for free. However lately I have had several people that have told me yes. We plan something then they back out at the last minute or never respond to me when it’s time to do the photo shoot and leave me hanging. Life is busy, I get it, especially during the holidays. All I ask for when I ask to do a photo shoot with you is to be honest with me. Please do not waste my time and do not waste yours by telling me you want to do a photo shoot with me and then back out at the last minute. Not only are you wasting your time but you are going to waste mine and in the end, I will probably be frustrated at you. I am going to respect you more if you point blank tell me sorry I am busy and don’t have time to do a photo shoot with you rather than you say yes then leave me hanging. Long story short all I want from people is to be honest with me. I get it, I seem like a nice guy (because I am) and you don’t want to tell me no. Please though tell me no so I am not upset and frustrated in the end. That is all I ask!
