a famous photographer has tried to get me to work for him or someshit

anyways, his name is carlo roncancio.. just in case some of u have heard of him.

I am the epitome of skeptic ok, as anti-naive as u can get. so my first thought is, wow this guy wants some ass. No.

He first talked ot me about 2 years ago, maybe 3, and i saw him again downtown, and he recognised me, but not really, and he asked if i was a model.

Im not a genius, or a model IMO. but people tell me this **** all the time.

I am still concerned he wants sex, and honestly i have heard he has ripped off a few people..

they pay, he doesnt give them any pics etc..

But then i have heard so much more good stuff about him, and that there are so few people who say anything bad im betting they just have conflict and they are trying to undermine his reputation.

but anyways, any advice?


words of warning? lol.

my lazy eye is gonna freak me out if this guy is legit.

i just dont want to waste my time. bleh ******* WTF?

me a model? am\ i being negative and holding myself back or being cautious?i guess thats the question.

perhaps i should take a middle approach and go in with skepticism but just dont let him get any leverage to rip me off and see if hes legit.

Go for it!

The scenario described above is exactly how I became the hardest working man in the porn industry. And I mean hard.

well, you will find that out, won't you? (If he wants your bod) Take it easy. You CAN say NO, can't you/

I suggest:
Be sure to sign a contract.
Ask what will be done with the finished product.

(And don't assume that you are a pretty-boy just because someone has asked you to model. You may have an "interesting" face, or some other feature that is needed. Heck, you might be the "before" person in a makeover picture)

Good luck and go for it. you will always wonder if you don't.

Oh - and DON'T let him talk YOU into paying for a photo shoot. HE approached you, first.

I Googled him. He does model portfolios. That costs a bunch.

Hey OG

you have got the looks hun!

What exactly has the guy said he wishes to do?

Do you have to put money up front to have a photoshoot done?

If you do it, don't get undressed and really, if you are that concerned, take someone along with you and get them to be in the room with you

Don't put yourself in any uncomfortable situation and don't compromise yourself in anyway.

If you do go ahead, make sure you read the paperwork - so, if he takes photos of you and then uses them ... that you will get paid for that. Then, if he wants you to buy the photos - which, I'm thinking you don't wish to do, then don't sign anything that says you will buy them or pay for his time for the photoshoot.

If you talk to him, ask for a copy of the contract/waiver - whatever it's called out there.... scan it ... and show us. I'm sure there's enough USfolkises here that can tell you if it all looks legit.

If yer really think he wants to get in yer pants - keep walking away buddy!

If it's bothering you a lot - just say "no thanks" and don't think about it again.

Take care y'hear!
