Just a little rant today about model/actress safety. I learned a few weeks ago that yet another model was murdered during the course of a shoot. Although the details of this particular one make it sound more like a saga of domestic violence between partners gone bad, I did my thing for the community and posted the news to several of the popular webmaster forums.

As expected, a lot of webmasters and content producers posted replies expressing horror and regret. What I DIDN'T expect was a flood of somewhat mean-hearted and cold posts by photo and video content producers that basically said it was the girl's fault.

To make it even worse, several pro-shooters came into the fray and were adamant that models and actresses should never be allowed to bring along a male escort to a shoot.

This attitude is inexcusable. Any model, male or female, that is booked in to show up with an unknown shooter really MUST have some sort of escort in tow for the first shoot, even if it's her sister or the studio's makeup artist. I know that some shooters will get all high and mighty on this topic, spewing "artistic freedom" themes, but let's face, it: for every 10 legit content producers out there, there are another 10 that simply want a POV blow job and don't even have film in the camera. The problem there is when a model is presented with a dangerous situation and attempts to shut down the production and leave. And then gets raped and murdered.

Our actresses need to feel safe when they arrive on a new set, and an escort or studio staff person is a good idea. That person provides a feeling of safety for the actress, and a degree of protection for the producer as there is a physical witness to what occurred.

Once they get to know and trust the shooter, it's a whole 'nuther ball game.
