Thread: Best Photography

  1. #1

    Best Photography

    Of all the agenciies that advertise on MERB, I would vote Mike & Chloe`s as the one with the best and most attractive photo shoots. Riley in particular looks like a godess and Carmen and Karrera look so much better than they did on GOF.
    The worst is Angel`s with the girls up against a fence looking like they are posing in a dog pound and the lighting (spot lites ?) distort their bodies.
    Special mention to WOP for showing face shots.

    2 things come to mind. I don't think photos are updated regularly anywhere, I don't think any agency likes to spend money on photos or a photographer.

    I don't care much for the fence, but for me the lighting is the killer. It's so bad, I just can't see how the pics could have been taken by a professional photographer. But thumbs up's for putting lots of pics and putting them on FAST.

    WOP is THE worst, they just put up horrible phone pics... sometimes just one.

    You must be kidding as well... Asservissante is another example of what horrible lighting can do to make a good looking girl look REALLY average and not the opposite. At least the surprise must be good when the girl knocks on your door...

    My vote for most realistic photography. What you see is what you get. I kike that!


    My honorable mention goes to Chris and his numerous agencies. If I remember well, he's one of the 1st agency owners who decided to invest a little $ in photography and put some really nice pics on his websites. Sometimes too nice as some of the pics are so well lit and photoshoped that we are in the opposite situation of Asservissante. It makes an average girl look super hot! Could also lead to a surprise when the girl knocks on your door...

    My "dishonorable" mention goes to Jessy and Peter who take waaaaaaaaaay too much time to put pics of their "new" girls on their websites... tsk tsk tsk

    I have to disagree.

    I did experiment with Montreal Sex City many updated with the pics, many more time for the ladies that have been around with me since asmost the opening of the agency. So in 3 years, yes, they've been many many photoshootings done to satisfy the demand of showing accurate pics.

    Well we use to do that very fast but since it as became a higth tendency for some ladies to stay till the pics goes up and then vanish ... It was figured out to wait and see if the ladies where serious enought to stay before doing so.

    Even with unwritten agreement, the most respectable agencies are starting to steel pictures from each other. We have decided not to be part of this and also decided to not recycle ladies as much as we can from other agencies to avoid that waist of time, ours and yours perhaps. In that sense, I can only applause merb administration to have decided to no allow agencies to ''post'' other agencies pics on the forum without getting permission from the first one.

    Greatfully now, we will find ''real brand new ladies'' that won't have their mind poisoned with all king of
    tricky manipulation to try on us to get either more exposure, suddend publicity or trying to get some for
    their other new agency, where definetly, seems not to work as well as they tought.

    At least one of the pics of Chloe predated the existence of this agency so why is the agency to be credited for it? If the pics are good then Chloe and the photographer get credit, not this agency.

    I agree with Jessy that photography theft is so rampant that to credit any agency with any photographs is a dangerous proposition as you may be crediting someone who is a very good thief. I am not saying that is the case here, but I know it is the case elsewhere and posters who have posted to compliment the photography are guilty of aiding and abetting a theft after the fact. That is a crime by the ways, although one you will never get prosecuted for.

    That being said Eleganza takes his own pics for many years now and his style is very obvious, so you know that what you see on his website is John's work whether you like that work or not.

    One of my two previous choices was indeed mentionned tongue-in-cheek. You pretty much guessed which one.

    I do agree with your comment in regards to Devilish/GOF's photography. Many of the girls on the website look like absolute knockouts, but you're kind of left with the feeling that you shouldn't get your expectations too high while waiting for a particular girl to show up (from experience). It's not the girl's fault. Blame it on a damn good photographer!

    With Eleganza, i usually have the opposite feeling about the girls i see on their site. From past experience, even though the girls look good in the pictures, i've often been pleasantly surprised at who would show up at my door. The classic case of this would be the former Emely's first set of pictures to ever appear on the site. I found the first set to make her look so-so....the lingerie she was wearing in those shots wasn't very appealing. The second set of pictures that came out two years later were a different story, though. She was hot!

    Finally, i have to agree with the 'Asservissante' pictures. Not wanting to be critical, but i doubt there's a single picture on that site which makes me want to see a particular girl. Bad lighting, bad clothing, bad poses, too much emphasis on a particular girl's negative physical assets (no boobs, unattractive boobs, skinny ass, etc). There also should be at least a few facial pics. It would go with the rest of the trend seen at other agency websites. Anyways, that's just my opinion. Maybe others like them....i don't. The good side of it, i suppose, is that the chances of a girl showing up looking much better than you imagined are probably high.

    As for XXXtase, it's not the worse that's out there. Most of the pictures are okay. However, there could be some improvement in all aspects of the website.

    Who is paying for photo?

    I was reading above and thought about the the actual ownership of the photos should be determined by who is paying for the photos.

    If the agency owner is paying then why not just watermark the agency name on to the photo.

    If the individual model is paying, then no watermark is necessary. Although a date watermark would be nice.

    Just my $0.02 CAD

    I am curious as to whether photos are a good business move.

    I used to read the bio's intensely and review every single photo before making a selection,
    but it didn't necessarily translate to my actual experience. So now, I pay little attention to
    written bio's, and try to keep the impact of sexy photos in check.

    So I wonder, when agency pays for high end photos, is there a return on investment.
    Does WOP get less bookings than Chloe's P. because of the investment in photography?
    Or better stated, would the exact same girl, get more bookings if she ditched her cell phone pics and
    piad for a great photographer.

    In our case, the is no expectation when we put up pics or new ones since it's the reputation of the agencies and the reviews that makes the entire differences.

    In other words, pics or not, good or not, better or worst, the inverstement's returns aren't established by if there is pics or not, no matter how much was invested. Don't know about the other agencies.

    I NEVER book a girl without pictures. So an agency definitly looses my money if don't invest in a photoshoot.
    Will a bad picture keep me from booking a girl? Maybe not... but it will certainly delay my decision.

    Hi !

    We definetly understannd your point of view, and it's a valuable one.

    That being said, after the pics are up, then the next question we have is :

    ''Is there any reviews ?'' >>> And beleive me, this one occurs even when the girl is debutante ! Ah ah ah ! ;-)

    And after there is, finally, the next thing we get is :

    ''I'll wait and see if there is more reviews ...''

    To sum that long story, by the time people fallow what they consider a sure avenue ...

    The girl is leaving the business cause she indeed made the money she wanted only base
    on reputation and feedbacks that we can repeat from one client to another on the phone.


    And CWipe, yes we pay for our pics. I can't imagine someone arrrgh enought to claim the rights
    on pics when they didn't even pay for them. Our photographe works exclusively for us and he as
    straight instructions on what I want as for the pics.

    Hello Peter & Jessy,

    I was just visiting your web site www.satindreamz.ca and noticed of the 4 ladies on your site, only 2 seemed to have photos associated to them.

    My questions is can you deduct photography as a business expense when you file your taxes?

    Just wondering,
