Topic | So how do we breathe life back into this old dog?

Maybe we need an event, get a few people together and get some of the old Camaraderie back?

A competition maybe? Prehaps combine the 2? 

NP can put something up surely? Prehaps a few quid to enter and that can go towards something... dunno?

Help me out people Member Image

Don't know Nige. I think we need some input from the moderators as they must have the figures regarding membership, site hits etc. Like others, I'm guilty of cancelling my paid membership but only because response levels had declined. There are some great folks on this site who all want it to succeed but need ideas. Why are other sites more successful when their product is inferior. One in particular comes to mind - it's a nightmare to use but has 1000s of members. Two years ago I'd ask for portfolio critique and get loads of insults - now I only get one or two and I don't think it's down to me getting better!!


HAPPY TO WORK UP TO OPEN WALLET LEVELS

Ola folks,

I haven't been around for a while, Nigel hows tricks?

I've been busy running my label and doing events, so the photography took a back seat for a while, but now back and with some help sorting some shoots out to feature on here, what have I missed?

Reading about the idea for a event, well I'm up for hosting something in London/ Croydon if wanted, I work with enough venues to get something sorted at no cost, and possibly a shoot meet, on location at no cost to the photographer, or models? Let me know how I can help and I will, good to be back.

Why the site's gone quiet is a mystery !

A prize draw !

Not a bad idea but ...............

No good having a prize draw if people don't visit the site to see the draw.

I tried that on my site "SimplyHousemates" it was an expensive mistake.

I do as much as I can but am wary of being all over the front page and hogging the space.  Whenever the user on-line list is refreshed I make a point of commenting on the profiles that are on-line and will try and add a couple of photos a day as I plough through my never-ending pile of editing.

It just needs activity and an acceptance that money is a bit tight right now so collaborations may be the way to go for a while.

I have also put up a fair few casting calls but my time is limited and there isn't usually much of response.....when models do 'apply' they then sometimes fail to respond to my follow-up email.......I am offering a service, more often than not free, why am I doing the chasing?

Anyway, enough for now.  Activity will make the place more vibrant.....its up to us.

well, its been 6 days since the last post and things are not looking any more exciting are they. viewing the forums, the newest posts are 5 days old. it doesnt seem like modles want to be shot unless its for money whether ther good or bad at it. but hay ho at least my application to join the site has not been rejected like it has from ps.

Hmm !

I wonder if they'd sell this site ?

It might be worth buying-out and re-marketing !

SOLD!!.

its a shame its not being used as it could, do you think its,.......I hate to say, but is it a bit ceedy and sometimes tacky, not saying my work is top draw, far from it but when ive seen other model/photographer/mua sites they seem quite classy, PS site refused me entry!! snobs Member Image . perhaps it needs to sharpen up a little, have a beginers (with some skill and knowledge of photography), advanced and pro section.
