It seems so... Lack of interest I surmise due to the fact that of late photographers and models are flooding the site with mediocre snapshots and think that if you have a camera that makes you a photographer and if you can take you clothes off and stand or sit - that makes you a model.
I'm busy trying to keep my head above water while honing my craft.
Jene & I have been submitting images to galleries or juried competitions and marketing ourselves as fine art portrait photographers.
But I know if i need inspirations, there are still some of the best photographers/models here on MC
Sorry, the other MC (Model Coast) seems lonelier than here.
Unlike other sites, MuseCube has a lot more outreach. If you choose to do so, you can send people here who are not members, and they can view all your work. That's an option not available on most of the other sites.
For that very reason, I've gotten paid work off of MuseCube and Glamour Models, the only two open to the public. Why those two sites are relatively quiet these days is still mystifying, but they both offer more benefits than the popular ones, at least where I live.
Yea, I'll put a plug in for the 'cube. I have been here almost from the beginning and remember when the site was free. There were TONS of critiques but a lot of them were, well, like comments from members who would join a free site just so they could look at pics of nekkid girls.
Not that I have anything against naked girls...
But I would agree that the quality of the diehards here is pretty damn good and I like the feedback I receive on my images, which is generally positive (funny, I don't remember offering bribes...)
Anyway, may the 'cube live on. And I will say that the websites in general (at least to me) seem like a way to get people to contact me by phone, etc. Works kind of like a really affordable catalog in the old 'mail order' days.
