Like most photographers nowadays it seems, I enjoy working on personal projects with models when things quiet down for me. I dream of one day creating my own photo book or having my own art show. I enjoy being creative and working with creative people. I like to photograph themed shoots, fashion, sports and even artful nudes. It alarms me though that there is this sub-culture that exists around under-age models working with photographers in ways that I'm not sure are legitimate.
So I decided after a recent contact from a young model, that I'd write a little letter. I've included it here. I hope it goes out to every young model. It isn't meant to squash your dreams. It's meant to be some feeble attempt to keep you safe and happy.
