Disgusting and unsurprising.
The first test shoot I was sent to turned out to be a nude shoot.
I was underage and spent the day alone -and naked- with the photographer, who also happened to do the makeup and spent quite some time putting on lotion on my body (there was no makeup artist as he was doing the makeup himself). The agency had not said anything to me about this being a nude shoot. As this was my first shoot, I had no idea how to get out of the situation. When I called the agency on the next day, my agent only said something like "oh no, he's so annoying, a nude shoot again!".

Thanks, that's very kind of you.

The almost complete absence of protection for models (who, in a lot of case, are underage) is absolutely scandalous. I'm so grateful for the work done by people like James Scully, Cameron Russell, the Model Alliance team etc. to try change that.
