Hello everybody and thank you very much for your support at the misshellas 2009 modelscout competition.
BUT I owe you a HUGE apology because due to some personal disagreement I had with the committee of the contest and especially the president, Im going to have to resign. I'm, so sorry to disappoint you,I hope you don't feel like you wasted your time
I still owe you an explanation.The president of the committee will be one of the judges at the finals so Its understandable that he won't be very objective after our little disagreement so why should I bother competing right?
And to be more clear about the disagreement:
He happens to be the agent of one of the girls of the competition no2. You know this girl you can see her in my pictures
I shot her for the competition but I didnt give her the permission to use any other pictures except the one that was for the competition (the reason is personal)
Unfortunately neither did she or her manager- the president of the committee- listen to me.(Plus I think it's really unfair the manager and on of the judges to be agent of a contestan, anyway)So they used 5 of my photos in her personal web page and in his companys web-page without even asking me or mentioning my name!!!
When I asked for an explanation he said who tells me that the pictures are yours? Have you signed anything? You dont own the pictures! I can use them any way I like to promote my model
So, you dont really expect me to stay in this competition and be judged my this man do you?
If any of you, photographers of all deviant art, were told something like that, what would you do? Because Im still very young and thats my first time I get screwed like that!
