Thanks for the request! Please give my new lonely set by Candylust featuring boobs and latex some love If you get the chance!
love all ur ses cant pick a fave....
Ah, in a nutshell, and other issues notwithstanding, without proactive models like yourself, being a Zivity photographer is mountains of hard work for a pittance. :(
The extended cut being: the only ways to be successful as a tog on here are to have models that do the rounds (as per the suggestion in Zivity 101) - it has to be the models, it doesn't work if we do it as fans don't really want to chat with photographers if they can chat with sexy models - or be one if the golden few who get promoted by the site.
I had a set - that I'd spent over a week of ...
... evenings editing in a style I thought would be popular with the mods - rejected when I've seen similar getting featured.
I tried - for the first time ever - to promote my models by dropping a line to their fans to say we had new sets. I've had only negative responses despite the fact you can't move for models blanket promoting their sets to alk and sundry round here, regardless of whether ...
... they're fans or not.
I do love that Zivity loves the models, but I hate that it hates the photographers.
I agree completely with what you are saying that it is the models who have to promote for a set to be successful. It is after all, the models who the fans visit the site to see. All you can do is encourage your models to be active and friendly on the site. I do understand how frustrating it must be for a photographer who has put his all into a set, to see it get very few votes.
I do have a great respect for you, and others, in that you've worked hard to build an empire from scratch on here - as such the 50/30 royalty split is more than justified. We have a model driven site with a model driven economy which is a very empowering thing. It's not just votes, it's nice to get feedback ... getting comments on photos on Facebook or reblogs on tumblr means so much, the comments
I get with votes mean more, but then people have to vote to comment. It feels like sets sit in a vacuum for most of the time.
I love to get comments and feedback too. Perhaps you could suggest to Zivity that there should be a way for people to comment on sets without actually voting.
Ah well sorry ... I only messaged her fans and I did look for stickies, must have missed it.
Been here a year and yet to work out how to actalkt get anyone to see your stuff, maybe I'll just finish up the sets I have left and stop throwing things into the black hole...
Plans in the pipeline! There is not enough nudity on my page, time to sort that out. For me to get naked will take MORE votes :o
If you were to haul ass over here to shoot I promise I will do it naked then ... deal? :-/ lol
Love the profile sentence..BC is my top dog in my pound of hounds! I adore your showcase..brings to attention some gems for sure! I hope your weekend has been splendid..if not let me know ..I will fix that! ~xo
OhI intend to :) and yeah, it's great that in this global mix of people there's still a slice of home.
thanks for the FR! I love my profile picture too :-)
Have a lovely relaxing day! I am chilling out today too, in the garden. It's a beautiful day, isn't it?
Ah sorry, some folks are thankful and others hate it - I usually fall in the second camp. I find for every model I wasn't crazy about who spammed me (had to unfriend a few) there are ten whose stuff I love who I wish would keep me updated... wish Zivity was a bit more user friendly sometimes...
Don't I feel like a bit of a stalker......I promise not to friend request you again ED2EUS, I hope I did not bug you too much honey :o) xxx
It's a difficult line ... as models as togs we want people to see our work, to vote for us, as fans we want to know when models we love have new sets up, but we don't want spam. I'd only we could subscribe to new sets from favourites or something?
I am afraid I am one of those (total honesty here) who appriciates attention because I want to be liked. I'd hate to be known for my annoying qualities though :o/ I just don't have it in me to be an attention seeker in real life....Too shy and unsure. Here it's different. Please be my friend ED2EUS! Purdy, purdy pur-leese, with whipped cream, a cherry and sprinkles on top :o)
Hey, thanks for the fr!! :)
thanks for the FR! Hope your day is rad!
Thanks for the FR. <3
Happy Birthday :)
Great thanks, busy! :-/ How goes the writing?
Nothing serious I hope?
Ouch, not good :( hope all went well.
Happy birthday!!!! Here's hoping for something rEEEEally cool or fun! Both would be fabulous! <3
Thank you ... and yes, it was fun AND cool :D x
Thank you for accepting my friend request. Promise to check out your sets real soon ;)
It's June showcase time ... and as everywhere in the northern hemisphere bar our beloved Blighty is enjoying some sun, what better to have as this month's theme. Ladies and gentlemen, I give you the summer, Zivity style:
http://www.zivity.com/models/ArielVonVargas/photosets/14 - Arial Von Vargas rocks a classic beach set to get the temperature soaring...
http://www.zivity.com/models/DanaBelle/photosets/1 - Dana Belle has fun in the sun with a dangerously melty looking I've cream...
http://www.zivity.com/models/kristhatrinity/photosets/1 - the beautiful Kristha Trinity goes for an all over tan ... No chance of any white bits here!
http://www.zivity.com/models/sabinakelley/photosets/3 - Sabina Kelley strips off in the pool, a beautiful combination of summer sun and wet inked skin.
http://www.zivity.com/models/MicheleRenatta/photosets/5 - the very hot Michele Renatta cools off in style for an awesome wet t-shirt set.
Hi ! ThanXXX for the friend request ! OMG you're from Yorkshire, I once worked as a journalist in York for a week, I miss it so much !
Hello new friend!
Hey, pretty good thanks ... just crazily busy as always. How're you?
Any chance of uploading the rest of our sets? :)
Most definitely! Just uploaded one now in fact, waiting to be able to tag you and submit it... :D
You are such a love! Thanks for the shout out. xoxoxo
Following a brief conversation a while back, I really wanted to get back into showcasing awesome stuff on Zivity ... there's so much more here than just the latest photosets. I tried to think of a theme, asked myself what drew me in to this place, but my theme pretty quickly became a person - the first photographer I saw on here that made me go WOW, and most importantly made me want to join in.
The intention was to make this a "top 5" ... but I can't get it down below 8, and even that's grudgingly. I'll leave themes for other months, but for May: here's Pirate Photography:
This is the style I love, contrast and motion and craziness - and toned down here but still rocking strong:
...my eye loves contrast, light/dark or colours and tones, and these sets are beautifully executed and highlight the tattooed beauty of the models. Following colour is monochrome, gritty and gorgeous:
...and abstract and awesome:
Again, it's contrast and the playful nature that really inspire me. Fifthly, if that's a word, comes the first Zivity set ever to be my favourite:
It's simple, it's beautifully whimsical ... I've not seen Integra look cuter, and that's saying a lot! And last comes the crazy :D
Yes latex! Yes crazy posing! ... but there's something about the colour again that draws my eye and keeps it. And to finish, one I'd never seen of Tamara from the trawl through Kitty's 200 sets. It's beautiful, serene, and easily one of my favourites:
And while I ponder the theme for June, I hope you enjoy these as much as I have...
hi darling how are you
"Avert? That doesn't seem fair..I am standing here with a warm towel in hand!
Boo! i see you there in the bath! Just about to go and have a nice hot bubble bath myself, funnily enough.
Eeek! he he
Mine was hot, but not bubbly as that's a tad unmanly...
Mine was VERY hot, VERY bubbly, and VERY scented!
thank you soooo much for featuring me on your page :D that is so sweet of you!
Thank you for the FR lady :)
thanks so much for voting on my set with Integra :) it seems to be persistantly a favourite!
Hi! Great work, thanks for the friend request! xo
Thanks for the friending. You are so wonderfully versatile!
I have been MIA for a bit but glad to be back in time to congratulate you on our Featured set..Keep up the great work!
Thank you for your friendship.
Thanks for the FR and for appreciating me highlighting the great work that is found on zivity. I try to change it each week.
You deserve a big bag o' kudos for it ... I tried to do the same myself but I'm hoping to do a showcase monthly ... currently thinking what to do for May!
I love the new Sweet Cheeks set.
I know! I spend an absolute fortune there too. Buy all my petrol and everything. The upside is that I now have LOTS of Cubcard vouchers, and am going to use them to have a holiday, courtesy of Tesco!
Lovely set! Congrats on getting it featured! well-deserved! I love the way the blacks and whites in the set really show off Lauren's beautiful auburn hair. Great job!
Hahaha. :D I try to be creative with these things. ;)
Awh, (blush) thanks. Nothing like getting out in the great outdoors!
Oh yes, there is much more. My hard drive is a dragon's lair, overrun with damsels in dis-dress.
Thanks for the FR. Great work!
How are you today? I like the new profile pic. looking forward to seeing the set.
Just uploaded it, keep 'em peeled. I'm a bit overworked but other than that I'm good thanks Babs. Having fun! Yourself?
I will watch out for it. I am having fun too. Shot an outdoor set for the Sexy Sports Fans contest on Thursday. Going out for a meal with friends this evening, so thta will be fun.
Thanks! Look forward to yours too, and enjoy.
Yep! :) I'll have a new set very, very soon...
You might have to ... editing takes me aaaages ;)
Yeah Yeah ... rub it in! I really should shoot with you sometime, and Tamara too for that matter... lol
Har :) TBH I spend most of my time waiting for the USM filter to process ... maybe I need a PC upgrade? lol
That sounds exciting! Looking forward to seeing the set. is your new profile pic a teaser from the set? Have a great Sunday!
