Sorry to hear you're having a problem.

(81) others viewed & reported no such issue...

Or "81 others" got this and didn't bother? (in FF)

A few decades ago - when it was common for stock shoots with models to happen in major markets - it was normal to have people you cast in shoots to become famous to one degree or another. Indeed, the main method of finding models in those days was to take ads in acting newspapers like "Backstage." Today, very many fewer people do model shoots than they did then, and most of those people are in much smaller markets that are cheaper to operate in.


Having models that became famous was good in a way and bad in many more. Their images would no longer interest big commercial buyers and essentially condemn the shoot to use as novelty images for gossip magazines. I photographed at least three people who wound up having recurring roles on major TV shows (of the time). Those were the days!
