Hey jizz,

 

I had a photo session with this photographer. Some of the shots are on my [link:www.andreasmikeals.com|site].

He shot two rolls, one in color and the other in b&w. He gave me the color roll but kept the b&w roll to develop himself. Unfortunately, I've never seen the b&w's. I've contacted him many times but have had no success.

To anybody who is considering having a photo shoot done with him, be cautious. He does great work as is obvious on his site. But my experience indicates he might be unrealiable in delivery of the final product.

Andreas, I accept the rebuke about the images. I'm not apologizing for placing my priorities where I did, and I'm more than happy to explain, and would have to you, if you had asked.

 

My mother was increasing ill, going downhill visibly. Not just her physical condition, but her mental state. She went from being someone who had been vital and active for over 90 years...to someone who needed constant watching.

 

For over a year...I was driving every two weeks...to spend four or five days at a time taking care of her. My two brothers and I shared the duties. I don't begrudge it. But frankly...it was an increasingly wearing experience...and I haven't felt like doing darkroom work for many many months.

 

What it comes down to...is...I think my Mother's care was more important than delivering prints to you. I seem to remember paying you as a model. I didn't do a photoshoot based on an exchange of prints for modeling. I paid you.

 

Perhaps I am being a prima donna...but I don't feel that it's my place to need to explain to you about my own personal problems.

At the same time...if you had bothered to ask...I would have explained.

 

It's really strange...how going through having a family member take a year to DIE...tends to take away my creative verve.

 

My mistake. I'll be more careful next time and make sure that there are no moments of personal crisis.

 

In the meantime...don't be surprised to see your images. And if you want to air your dirty laundry on here...go ahead. Like I said...you DID get paid. And you DID get the color film.

 

Thanks!

Jerry,

 

Sorry to hear about your mother. I understand how the downfall of a loved one can deeply affect a person. I went through the same thing with my father.

 

But there are some points of your post I must respond to. I knew about your mother's poor health at the time of the photo shoot in November. And this knowledge is what kept me from hounding you about my prints. I've contacted you three times in the past 6 months. Each time you explained about your mother and each time I waited a month before contacting you again. Finally, I gave up.

 

You mentioned losing your "creative verve." That is of course understandable given your situation. However, several months after my photo shoot, I was contacted by another model who was flying into Texas and had arranged a photo shoot with you. You gave him my e-mail address as a reference. So during this lack of creative verve, you seem to have at least one moment of clarity to do a photo shoot. By the way, I gave you a glowing reference and did not mention any problems.

 

Yes, you did pay me for the photo shoot and yes, I did receive the color prints. But, delivering half of the final product is never considered to be acceptable. Especially, when during this time, you have conducted other photo shoots.

 

I did a search on all your posts on this site. It seems that in your grief, you've had the time to be moderately active with posts. In fact, according to your own post, you visited DC in April where you went to LACage. You were in DC, my home town, obviously with some free time on your hands and it didn't occur to you to contact me in any way.

 

The point is, I never expected my prints to be top priority in your life even without the crisis with your mother. Nor did I expect you to stop working. I did however expect you to fulfill your obligation to me or to at least maintain contact with me until done so. I stand behind my original statement, "He does great work as is obvious on his site. But my experience indicates he might be unreliable in delivery of the final product."

PS: Coincidentally, I did receive the prints this morning via e-mail.

OK... there is no way you can post those HOT pics on an escort review site and expect no one to ask..."where are the escort ads with contact info on these guys?" Now the photos are wonderful, and every guy is gorgeous (I wouldn't kick a single one of them out of my bed)... but being a fan of the more twinky, young, smooth type (like Nick in gallery 4), I almost creamed in my pants when I saw the pics of Brian in gallery 3 and Brian in Leather! Now there is a boy and a boy ass that is begging for attention! :) So any texan out there who may be familiar with these boys please tell me... how does one turn the images into reality? Better yet... any working boy on that site should post their email here for us "disciminating clients!" LOL
