I've done a lot of modeling for artists, and once for a photographer. I'd like to get more jobs and more photo shoots with which to build a portfolio. I have some decent shots already, but could always use more.
A couple of my friends have posted photo shoots on facebook, and I thought it would be a good idea to ask them and the photographers about it. In my direct style, I said the photos were really nice, asked the models if they paid for them or if the photographers just needed models, and asked the photographers if they needed more models. No response from anyone. Was I rude? Should I not have asked those questions? How do I find out these things if I don't ask? Should I have worded things differently? What is the proper etiquette for these situations?
Edit: Actually my friend responded and said she was just busy at the moment, and the photographer responded too and said good things. So it was probably the case in the past too that people were just busy. Fe freak out. In any case, it would still be good to know exactly what to say and how and when and all that if anyone feels like they know. Which is just as well as I can't delete a thread.
