    Photographer threatens model

    I don't know much about the modelling industry but this seems like a really easy way to make sure no model will work with you again.

    One would suspect, at the least, that his business opportunities might dry up now.

    Sounds like someone has been doing work for 'free'. Time for prints etc, and is not happy now that some of the models he has worked with are doing well.

    All he has achieved is alienating himself and using alcohol as an excuse is pathetic.

    Very weak excuse there. I'm surprised there haven't been any civil suits filed against him already. Needless to say, he's going to be doing a lot of child birthday photoshoots for a while.

    Where else would this one head --- All the normal ingredients. Possibly a "model" and a "photographer" with over inflated senses of self worth, a few trendy names thrown in, facebook and then delivered to you by news.com ensure that it will be an ongoing, name calling catfight.

    My suggestion is a change of career. I wouldn't be happy with him doing my kids birthday.

    Hes on my facebook, I ate a lot of popcorn whilst reading/watching the rant building up to the implosion

    Yet in the aftermath, there were models and ppl writing on his wall to defend him.

    That glamour/bikini modeling industry sure is a strange one

    I & M is on the money. Facebook is like giving a bunch of pre-schoolers a handful of grenades. When the damage is done you appoint a pack of journalists as judge and jury. Storm in a teacup.
    In the NT both photographer and model will be regularly sought after. There is little professionalism either side of this promotion but no doubt it will work.

    Making a living as a photographer is hard enough without being a psychopath. Reminds me of the recent case of a friend's child who was left crying and with bruise marks to his arm by a school photographer.

    The Photographer is actually one of the most talented Glamour Togs in the country who made a serious error in judgement. (Well two, he shouldn't have shot with the Diva in the 1st place)
    He's recently moved from Darwin due to non related health issues, and the "model" in this case has now had her 30 seconds of fame and drifted quietly back to well deserved obscurity.

    The model in this case was professional in her role as Ambassador throughout the Darwin Cup carnival last year. It's a little stereotypical to write the model of as a flake. We see alcohol used as an excuse for poor behaviour day in and day out at the local courts and it's just not good enough.

    I am familiar with Marks work and appreciate his skill in his chosen field. Perhaps the relocation will give him the opportunity on refining his personal skills, just a shame he had to confirm the interstate opinion that NT residents are a bunch of yobbo cowboys before he went. Thanks Mark!
