Supposing a painter wanted to take you photo so he could use you as a subject in one of his paintings, it doesn't matter how old you are, or what kind of shape you are in, he says you have a beautiful face and wants to take your photo so he could use it for a painting, he will pay you for it, 1- you know him would you do it? 2 -you don't know him would you do it? 3 -supposing he once you scantily clad and you know him would you do it? 4 -He wants you scantily clad and he doesn't know you would you do it? 5 - He wants you completely nude would you do it? if you know him? 6 -don't know him? please answers all questions with some explanation for best response

Hi Rose I had a sort of similar experience I wrote a letter to the editor and a few months after it was published I received a letter from a book publishers asking if they might use my letter in their text book, I was quite astonished but it was legitimate offer so I said sure. A while later I was sent an excerpt from the text book and it was using my letter as how not to write a letter to the editor as mine was personal experience and they described it as blackmail to persuade the reader to sympathies with me. The article was on my personal experience with dementia and trying to get the medication I need. So some where out there is a letter of mine that was used against me, so in answer to your question No I do not allow any one to take any thing of me or mine because they are professional. My picture would be in the before and after category and I would be the before lol
