Wow that's hilarious! I didn't even notice that she updates the ad. What an attitude. I don't want my pictures being instagramed with a crappy filter and her calling it edited. Thats just wrong... I really hope nobody accepts this crazy job.

Why are you so wound up and emotional over this ad from a 17 year old? It's not a personal invitation to you, just ignore it and move on.

If you take the time to do a search on that site, and in the same geographical area, you'll find several photogs offering a free shoot (to add to a portfolio), low cost shoots on the order of $50 or so, etc. Maybe you can go dig those out, post them and be outraged, offended, etc.

I look on there all the time. It's more the lack of respect this 17 year old has for what we do that has me upset. Even though its not a personal invitation to me, it still bugs me. If she was looking for a plumber I wouldn't care, but it's a photographer she's looking for and doesn't have to respect to even listen to what people are apparently telling her even though its true. It's her attitude and lack of respect that's bugging me.

I expect that you have far better things to do with your time than worry about what someone posts in an online ad. You're not going to change anything associated with this by posting it in a WW forum. There are better causes to get involved in, should you be so inclined.

I understand that but it's an open form and I can post about what I want, and this does relate to photography. I'm not looking to solve anything, I just wanted people's opinions on the ad.

I also work nights full time so I have a ton of free time on my hands.
