Hey kids! Watch as I write this without name calling and profanity! I know, hard to believe and you are already betting I can’t do it. Let’s go…
Since posting this and this, a few things have happened. Best news: one of those abused women has made it public. Instead of letting this individual simply get away with it, she’s speaking out. I’m pretty pleased about this. I can only begin to imagine how difficult getting through this is going to be.
In other news, the photographer has reached out to some of his “people” to add “do not work with JSV” to their portfolios. I was reading though some posts the other day that were talking about creepy photographer issues. When I clicked on a couple of those model portfolios to see what their issues were, I was surprised to see MY name as someone to NOT work with. No explanations… message them for details. Hmm.
I looked at these two portfolios and wondered if I had blown my mind completely. I don’t think I even remember either one of these people. For a second or two I figured I was just old and had lost it, but then I realized I did not even know these people… I have never met them. Seeing these portfolios was the first time I was ever aware that they were even on the planet. As I investigated, I discovered that each had worked with the sexual abusing photographer, the person at the root of this tale.
I am ruing the day, evidently. I guess this is his retaliation and a way to black list me or something. Whatever.
In the meantime… I shot more small silly things.
I did it! NO swearing!
