Huntington, New York
United States
"WEEPWA.COM" IS, ON THE SURFACE, AN INTERACTIONAL WEBSITE DEVOTED TO THE "PROMOTION OF THE FILM AND ART COMMUNITY". IN REALITY, IT IS A SCAM WHICH WAS ORIGINATED AND IS MAINTAINED BY ONE JOHN DOWLING, OF HUNTINGTON, NEW YORK. IT IS A SINGLE MAN OPERATION. THE CREATION OF THE WEBSITE APPEARS TO BE FOCUSED SOLELY UPON ONE PREMISE: THE PROCUREMENT OF YOUNG WOMEN FOR JOHN DOWLING. I PERSONALLY ATTEMPTED TO HELP MR. DOWLING ESTABLISH ROOTS AND CONTACTS IN THE FASHION MODEL COMMUNITY. ONCE I DID SO, THE PROBLEMS COMMENCED. WHAT I NOTICED ALMOST IMMEDIATELY WAS THE PENCHANT MR. DOWLING HAD FOR SMOKING MARIJUANA, FOR EXTENDED PERIODS OF TIME, THROUGHOUT THE DAY. MR. DOWLING CONSTANTLY REFERRED TO "ATTORNEY RELATIONSHIPS", "ATTORNEYS ON RETAINER", "BOARD OF DIRECTORS" MEETINGS, AND "CONTINUAL AND ONGOING MEETINGS AND NEGOTIATIONS WITH PROSPECTIVE INVESTORS". I QUICKLY FOUND THAT, ALL THE WHILE, THIS WAS A ONE MAN OPERATION: JOHN DOWLING, ALL BY HIMSELF, COMPLETE WITH MARIJUANA PIPE. I ARRANGED FOR DOWLING TO WORK WITH A VERY HIGH PROFILE FASHION MODEL IN ORDER TO BETTER PROMOTE HIS BUSINESS, AND TO GIVE IT A RECOGNIZABLE FACE WITH WHICH TO BETTER MARKET THE COMPANY. DOWLING WAS SPECIFICALLY WARNED BY MYSELF THAT HE WAS, IN NO WAY, SHAPE, OR METHOD, TO APPROACH THIS FEMALE FASHION MODEL WITH ANYTHING IMPROPER THAT SUGGESTED SEXUAL RELATIONSHIP, FAVOR, OR INNUENDO. SLIGHTLY ONE HOUR AFTER I HAD ISSUED THIS DICTUM, THE SUGGESTIONS ON MR. DOWLING'S PART COMMENCED. HE IMMEDIATELY SUGGESTED A PERSONAL RELATIONSHIP OF A ROMANTIC NATURE TO THIS WOMAN, MORE THAN TWENTY YEARS YOUNGER THAN HIMSELF. SHE DESCRIBED HIS INITIAL APPEARANCE AS "UNKEPT AND UNSANITARY, COMPLETE WITH GREASY PONY TAILED HAIR, AND THE DISTINCT TRACE OF OFFENSIVE BODY ODOR". PERSONALLY, I FOUND HER DESCRIPTIONS OF JOHN DOWLING TO BE ACCURATE IN DETAIL. IT WAS SUGGESTED UPON NUMEROUS OCCASION TO THIS YOUNG WOMAN THAT "SHE WOULD HAVE TO BE AVAILABLE AT ALL TIMES TO ESCORT MR. DOWLING TO AND FROM PUBLIC EVENTS", AND THAT ONE OF HER DUTIES WOULD BE TO "BE SEEN" WITH MR. DOWLING IN FRONT OF BUSINESS CLIENTS. ADDITIONALLY, HER MOTHER WAS RUDELY TOLD BY MR. DOWLING THAT SHE WAS NOT TO CALL THE PLACE OF BUSINESS ( A SMALL, DECREPIT HOUSE IN HUNTINGTON, NEW YORK ) AFTER 5 PM, FOR ANY REASON WHATSOEVER, THAT THERE WAS NO NEED FOR HER MOTHER TO SPEAK TO HER. DOWLING ALSO INFORMED THIS YOUNG WOMAN THAT SHE WOULD, FROM THAT POINT ON, HAVE HER CAREER MANAGED BY MR. DOWLING. AFTER 2 WEEKS OF "WORKING" WITH DOWLING, THE YOUNG WOMAN PERMANENTLY ENDED THE ASSOCIATION.
DOWLING HAS REPEATEDLY SUGGESTED THAT WEEPWA.COM ONLY WORK WITH FEMALE FASHION MODELS, THAT MALE FASHION MODELS WERE NEVER TO BE USED. HIS SHODDY EXAMPLES OF "FASHION PHOTOGRAPHY" EMPLOY AN APPROACH THAT IS OFTEN REFERRED TO AS "TITS AND ASS" PHOTOGRAPHY. DOWLING OFTEN APPROACHES YOUNG WOMEN IN SHOPPING MALLS, BARS AND NIGHTCLUBS, OFFERING TO THEM THE PROMISE OF PHOTOGRAPHY AND EXPOSURE IN THE NEW YORK CITY FASHION COMMUNITY. WHAT, MORE OFTEN THAN NOT IS OFFERED ARE PHOTOGRAPHIC SESSIONS WITH JOHN DOWLING, WHERE NUDE PHOTOGRAPHY IS USUALLY SUGGESTED. ANOTHER YOUNG WOMAN COMPLAINED TO ME OF THE OFFER OF A "NUDE JACUZZI SESSION" WITH DOWLING. I ATTEMPTED TO REASON WITH DOWLING, WHILE, ALL THE TIME, INVESTIGATING THESE ALLEGATIONS. ONCE I FOUND THEM ALL TO BE ACCURATE IN SUBSTANCE, I ABRUPTLY ENDED MY ASSOCIATION WITH DOWLING.
THE "WEBSITE DEVOTED TO THE ARTS" RUN BY DOWLING IS GLITCHY, SLOW, CUMBERSOME, AND DARK IN NATURE. TRUE TO MR. DOWLING'S VERY NATURE, THE WEBSITE IS MORE DEVOTED TO THE LONG ISLAND PARTY SCENE, THAN IT IS THE ARTS.
I WOULD STRONGLY ADVISE ANYONE WHO WOULD HARBOR THOUGHTS OF WORKING WITH MR. DOWLING TO BE AWARE OF HIS UNETHICAL BUSINESS PRACTICES, AND HIS PENCHANT OF USING THE EXCUSE OF A WEB ORIENTED BUSINESS PLATFORM TO "DATE" YOUNG WOMEN. THERE IS CONTINUED DRUG USE ON THE PREMISIS. THIS, I HAVE PERSONALLY WITNESSED. WHILE NOT BEING A DANGEROUS INDIVIDUAL, DOWLING'S PENCHANT FOR PATHOLOGICAL LYING ABOUT HIS "BUSINESS CONNECTIONS", COUPLED WITH HIS EMPLOY OF FICTICIOUS EMAIL IDENTITIES, LAW FIRMS, AND THE LIKE RENDER HIS VERY CHARACTER AS BEING LAUGHABLE. IT IS HIS AIM TO APPEAR TO THE BUSINESS COMMUNITY AS THE CEO OF A CORPORATION, THIS IS WHAT HE WOLD HAVE THOSE HE DEALS WITH SEE. WHAT WE ACTUALLY SEE IS A POT SMOKING, GREASY LOOKING SLIMEBALL HUNCHED OVER A COMPUTER FOR 16-18 HOURS A DAY, SMOKING POT, AND HITTING ON YOUNG, ATTRACTIVE WOMEN.
MY ADVICE HERE WOULD BE TO STEER WAY, WAY CLEAR OF JOHN DOWLING AND "WEEPWA.COM". ABSOLUTELY NOTHING THAT COMES FROM HIS MOUTH IS THE TRUTH. IIS PENCHANT FOR PATHOLOGICAL LYING TO EVERYONE HE MEETS IS ASTOUNDING, AND IS DEDICATED SOLEY TO ONE THING:

DATING YOUNG WOMEN.

CLAYTON NELSON IS A PIG. REALLY THE MOST DISGUSTING AND TWO FACED MENTALLY ILL CRIMINAL I HAVE EVER KNOWN. CLAYTON CONTACTED ME TWENTY YEARS AFTER I MOVED OUT OF NYC TO SUGGEST WE WERE VERY GOOD FRIEND BACK IN THE 80'S. EVEN THOUGH I DID NOT REMEMBER HIM AT ALL, I WAS POLITE TO HIM BECAUSE HE WAS FACEBOOK FRIENDS WITH A COUPLE I INTRODUCED WHO LATER MARRIED. OUT OF RESPECT FOR THEM I ENTERTAINED HIS OBSESSIVE TELEPHONE CALLS AT ALL HOURS OF THE NIGHT AND DAY, AND HIS RIDICULOUS IDEAS FOR HOW HE WAS GOING TO INTRODUCE ME TO CLICK, TOP MODELS, AND INVESTORS FOR MY BUSINESS. WHILE CLAYTON IS A VERY GOOD PHOTOGRAPHER, HIS PROFESSIONALISM STOPS THERE. EVERY SINGLE PERSON HE INTRODUCED ME TO SPOKE ABOUT HIM AS IF HE WAS A CREEP, DISINGENUOUS, AND SPOKE IN CONFIDENCE THAT THEY KEEP HIM AT ARMS LENGTH BECAUSE OF HIS INSISTANCE ON USING THE MOST FOUL LANGUAGE IN PROFESSIONAL SITUATIONS THEY HAVE EVER HEARD. WHILE IT IS TRUE THAT HE INTRODUCED ME TO A TOP MODEL, SHE WAS A SICK ALCOHOLIC WHO WAS UNABLE TO WORK MORE THAN A DAY AT A TIME WITHOUT UNFORTUNATELY CREATING DRAMA AND PROBLEMS WHERE EVER SHE WENT. ALTHOUGH I FELT A GREAT DEAL OF COMPASSION FOR THIS MODEL, I DISCONTINUED WORKING WITH HER BECAUSE SHE PRIVATELY WHILE INTOXICATED SHARED WITH ME THAT SHE DID NOT WANT TO MODEL ANYMORE, WANTED TO BE A NURSE, BUT HER MOTHER WAS FORCING HER TO CONTINUE IN THE BUSINESS BECAUSE SHE HAD SOLD HER HOUSE EARLIER CLAIMING THAT HER DAUGHTER WAS RESPONSIBLE FOR THAT LOSS. THEY WERE THE MOST DYSFUNCTIONAL PEOPLE I MET DESPITE THE FACT SHE WAS ALSO ONE OF IF NOT THE MOST BEAUTIFUL PEOPLE I EVER SAW. SHE ALSO BEGGED ME NOT TO LISTEN TO ANYTHING CLAYTON NELSON HAD TO SAY, AS SHE WAS USING HIM FOR FREE PHOTOGRAPHS. CLAYTON NELSON FOR SOME REASON MAINTAINS VERY HIGH RELATIONSHIPS. PROBABLY BECAUSE HE PHOTOGRAPHS MODELS FOR FREE FOR MANY AGENCIES WHO REMAIN GUARDED RELATIONSHIPS WITH HIM BECAUSE FROM TIME TO TIME HIS OBSESSIVE FACEBOOK FRIENDING FINDS THEM A MODEL OR TWO. CLAYTON PERSONALLY INVITED ME TO PHOTOGRAPHIC SHOOTS WHERE I FOUND OUT UPON ARRIVAL THAT HE WAS SIMPLY TRYING TO GET ME TO PURCHASE DRUGS FROM HIS DRUG DEALING FRIENDS. KNOWING THAT I HAVE A SEVERE HEALTH ISSUE, AND HAVE USED LEGAL MEDICAL GRADE "HERBAL REMEDIES" FOR MASSIVE PAIN. HE HAS INTENTIONALLY USED THAT TO TRY TO PROFIT FROM MY ILLNESS, AND I HAVE TURNED HIM DOWN EVERY TIME. HE HAS ALSO INVITED ME TO PHOTOGRAPH AND INTERVIEW MODELS AT STUDIOS IN NYC WHERE RAMPIT DRUG USE FOR NONE MEDICAL REASONS WAS BEING DONE, AND HE EVEN TRIED TO GET ME TO SUPPLY HIS ASSOCIATES, OF WHICH I REFUSED. I AM NOT A DRUG DEALER, I DO NOT USE NARCOTICS, AND MY ENTREPRENEURIAL WEB SITE IS THERE FOR ANYONE TO USE WHO HAS A CREDIBLE STORY OR CREATIVE PASSION THEY WANT TO MONETIZE. WHEN CLAYTON NELSON ATTEMPTED TO EXTORT MONEY FROM ME BY SUGGESTING I PAY IN ADVANCE FOR SERVICES OF HIS ASSOCIATES, I DISCONTINUED ANY RELATIONSHIP WITH HIM WHAT SO EVER. EVEN HIS OWN LONG TERM FRIEND AND MAKEUP ARTIST SAID THAT HE NEVER SHOULD HAVE ASKED ME FOR MONEY IN ADVANCE. THE MODEL WHOM HE SENT TO ME ALSO IS VERY SICK. THERE IS NO DOUBT IN ANYONE'S MIND WHO SPENDS TIME WITH HER THAT SHE SHOULD BE IN REHAB, A TWELVE STEP PROGRAM, WHICH IS WHAT I SUGGESTED TO HER OUT OF COMPASSION. ALL THE WHILE CLAYTON KEPT INVITING HER TO GO TO THE LOCAL WATERING WHOLE AND GET DRUNK, PROBABLY HIS IMMATURE AND DISGUSTING WAY OF TRYING TO GET OVER ON A MODEL WHO TALKS TO THE WALLS WHEN SHE IS INTOXICATED, NEVER MIND ABLE TO PROTECT HERSELF FROM THAT VERY AWFUL DISEASE. AS FAR AS CLAYTON'S OTHER CLAIMS.. I INVITE MEN AND WOMEN TO MY VERY SMALL HOME STUDIO FOR FUN, TO CREATE ART TOGETHER, AND TO SHARE THE EXPERIENCE. EVERY SINGLE ONE OF THEM HAS THANKED ME FOR THE PHOTOGRAPHS, USED THEM FOR THIER CARDS, AND HAVE COME BACK MANY TIMES YEAR AFTER YEAR. CLAYON'S JELOUS AND SLANDEROUS REMARKS ARE SIMPLY WRITTEN TO FURTHER HARASS ME BECAUSE I WILL NOT HAVE ANYTHING TO DO WITH HIM AT ALL ON ANY BASIS. HE IS BANNED FROM OUR NETWORK, AND I HAVE ALREADY MADE A POLICE REPORT AS TO HIS OBSESSIVE EMAILING, AND THREATS WHICH ARE PATHETIC. BECAUSE OF MY HEART CONDITION I DO NOT DATE, NEVER MIND YOUNG WOMEN. WHEN I DID, I ASSURE YOU I TRULY LOVED THEM, AND THE LOVE WAS MUTUAL. EVERY WOMEN I HAVE EVER DATED IN MY ENTIRE LIFE I AM FRIENDS WITH, AND EVERY ONE OF THEM WOULD AGREE THAT I AM BOTH A GENTLEMAN AND A PROFESSIONAL. I LOVE THE HUMAN FIGURE AND PHOTOGRAPH WOMEN AND MEN NUDE AND MY WORKS ARE BEING AGGREGATED FOR A BOOK ON THE HUMAN FIGURE. I ASSURE YOU THAT THEY ARE NOT PORNOGRAPHY AND THE ONLY INTENTIONS FOR USE ARE FOR THE SAKE OF BEAUTIFUL ART, NOT AS CLAYTON SUGGESTED. CLAYTON NELSON HAS NEVER ATTEMPTED TO REASON WITH ME OR ANYTHING OF THE SORT. HE IS THE MOST UNREASONABLE, UNPROFESSIONAL, AND MENTALLY HANDICAPPED INDIVIDUAL I HAVE EVER ENCOUNTERED AND I SUGGEST YOU STAY AS FAR AWAY FROM HIM AS POSSIBLE. THE LAST WOMEN I MET AT A NIGHTCLUB WHO I SUGGESTED BECOME A MODEL, I PHOTOGRAPHED, SHE WAS PUT ON A COVER OF A LOCAL MAGAZINE THAT SAME MONTH, AND WAS PICKED UP BY CLICK THAT SAME WEEK. THE SAME YOUNG WOMEN THAT I SPOKE ABOUT TO CLAYTON WHO HE SUGGESTS THAT I SUGGESTED SHE ESCORT ME TO PUBLIC EVENTS, IS TRUE. THE LAST ONE I TOOK HER TO, SHE WAS PUT ON STAGE WITH MARTIN SHORT AS A FAVOR TO ME, TO HELP REBUILD HER CAREER AFTER YEARS OF HER NOT BEING USED BY JUST ABOUT ANYONE. I HAVE AN ATTORNEY, IN FACT I HAVE 3, ALL OF WHICH ARE WELL INFORMED AS TO THE HARRASMENT BY CLAYTON NELSON AND ONE OF WHICH WILL BE STARTING A LAW SUIT SHORTLY FOR CONTINUED EMAILING AND TELEPHONE CALLING TO MY HOME AND HANGING UP AFTER A LEGAL SIECE AND DESIST ORDER WAS ISSUED. IF YOU WOULD LIKE TO HERE CLAYTON NELSON HIMSELF AND HOW HE SUGGESTS HE LIKES TO PICK UP GIRLS "BY GOING TO BARS AND HAVING GANG BANGS" SIMPLY GO TO YOUTUBE.COM AND SEARCH CLAYTON NELSON. YOU WILL SEE THIS DISGUSTING CREATURE FIRST STATING THAT, AND THEN SUGGESTING IN A FOLLOWING VIDEO CLIP THAT HE KNOWS HOW TO HURT PEOPLE HE DOES NOT LIKE BY GOING TO THEIR HOUSES AND THREATENING THEM. HE HAS SUGGESTED THAT HE HAS THE HIGHEST LEVEL CONTACTS WITH ORGANIZED CRIME AND TO LOOK OUT OR HE WILL HURT ME, SO I HAVE NOT RESPONDED TO ANY OF HIS EMAILS OR THREATS. HOWEVER, THE POLICE DEPARTMENT IS NOW INVESTIGATING CLAYTON NELSON SO I AM SURE IF HE HAS ANY CONNECTIONS, THEY ARE GOING TO STAY FAR AWAY FROM CLAYTON AS HE IS SHORTLY, IF HE CONTINUES THESE HARASSING AND THREATENING EMAILS AND POSTINGS WILL FIND HIMSELF IN JAIL. THERE ARE MAY OTHER POSTS BY PEOPLE WHO HAVE DEALT WITH CLAYTON NELSON ON THIS SITE SO I SUGGEST YOU READ THEM, AND STAY AS FAR AWAY FROM CLAYTON NELSON AS POSSIBLE. IF YOU WOULD LIKE TO KNOW MORE ABOUT ME, MY NETWORK, AND MY ART, THAT IS SIMPLE JUST GO TO WEEPWA.COM AND YOU WILL SEE THE LEVEL OF PROFESSIONALISM I MAINTAIN, AND THE EXTRAORDINARY NETWORK I HAVE BUILT FOR ARTISTS. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eiJ92UrSE1c THIS IS WHERE YOU CAN SEE HIM PERSONALLY

HERE IS ANOTHER EXAMPLE OF HOW CLAYTON NELSON IS A BIGIT AND A CRIMINAL. JUST READ THIS EMAIL YOURSELF OF CLAYTON NELSON THREATENING AN INNOCENT AND TALENTED HAIR AND MAKEUP ARTIST JUST BECAUSE OF HIS LIFESTYLE CHOICE. IF YOU THINK THAT PEOPLE SHOULD BE ALLOWED TO CHOSE THIER OWN LIFESTYLES AND NOT HAVE TO BE BULLIED THEN AVOID CLAYTON NELSON AT ALL COSTS.

FACTS ARE FACTS HERE. JOHN DOWNLING HAS BEEN "BLACKLISTED" AT VIRTUALLY EVERY NEW YORK MODEL AND ADVERTISING AGENCY, DUE TO NUMEROUS COMPLAINTS, NEARLY ALL OF WHICH DEALT WITH INNUENDOES OF A SEXUAL NATURE. I MYSELF HAVE FIELDED NUMEROUS COMPLAINTS SINCE MAY OF 2011, MOSTLY FROM YOUNG GIRLS WHO WERE APPROACHED BY DOWLING, WITH THE PROMISE OF "WEBSITE EXPOSURE", AND "EXTENSIVE NEW YORK CITY MODEL CONNECTIONS". APPARENTLY, THE ONLY THING THAT DOWLING ATTEPMTED TO "EXPOSE" THESE YOUNG GIRLS TO WAS A VIDEO CAMERA, WHILE SCANTILLY CLAD, IF CLOTHING WAS WORN AT ALL. ONE SUCH GIRL RELATED TO ME THAT THE SITUATION WAS DEGRADED ENOUGH TO THE POINT WHERE SHE HAS CONTACTED THE HUNTINGTON, N.Y. POLICE DEPARTMENT. THE "HOT TUB" ROUTINE WAS ATTEMPTED UPON THIS 19 YEAR OLD GIRL, AS IT IS ON NEARLY EVERY YOUNG FEMALE WHO COMES IN CONTACT WITH DOWLING. JOHN DOWLING IS FAIRLY HARMLESS. NO ONE WHO HAS CONTACT WITH HIM WILL FIND THEMSELVES IN ANY DANGER. WHAT THEY WILL FIND IS A DUMPY, GREASY LONER WHO COMES ACROSS AS DESPERATE FOR FEMALE ATTENTION. ONE READILY IDENTIFIES HIS PENCHANT FOR A HEALTHY AND PRONOUNCED DISRESPECT FOR WOMEN. HE GENERALLY TREATS WOMEN IN A CONDESCENDING MANNER, MUCH AS A "CLIENT" WOULD TREAT A "HOOKER". HE HAS REPEATEDLY DEMANDED OF YOUNG WOMEN THAT THEY ACCOMPANY HIM TO "CLIENT MEETINGS", AND ALWAYS "HOLD HIS ARM, HAND, OR EMBRACE HIM", IN SOME MANNER. GENERALLY, THESE "CLIENT MEETINGS" HAVE CONSISTED OF NOTHING MORE THAT SOCIAL GATHERINGS N.Y. RANGER HOCKEY GAMES, AND BARROOMS ON LONG ISLAND. WHILE WORKING WITH DOWLING, I MYSELF WAS ENCOURAGED TO LOCATE WOMEN FOR JOHN WHO WOULD BE "OPEN" TO SEXUAL RELATIONSHIPS. UPON CLOSE EXAMINATION, THE "WEEPWA.COM" SITE IS LITTLE MORE THAN A TACKY SOCIAL PARTY SITE, ONE WHICH ESPOUSES JOHN DOWLING'S EVER PRESENT AND NEVER WNDING THEME OF "TITS AND ASS". HIS PHOTOGRAPHY IS RIFE WITH IT, AS IS HIS WEBSITE. THE WEBSITE ITSELF IS AMATEURISH IN BUILD, DIFFICULT TO NAVIGATE THROUGH, AND IS VERY "DARK AND GLOOMY" IN APPEARANCE, AS ONE ADVERTISING EXEC IN MANHATTAN WHO HAD OCCASION TO LOOK IT OVER DESCRIBED IT. IN A DISCUSSION WITH ME, SHE LIKENED THE WEBSITE TO "LONG ISLAND TRAILER TRASH". DANGEROUS? NO. OFFENSIVE, AND INSULTING? YES. JOHN DOWLING, TO ANY OF YOU YOUNG FEMALES ON LONG ISLAND, IS AN UTTER WASTE OF TIME. HE IS REGARDED IN THE MEDIA WORLD IN MANHATAN AS "THE LITTLE HORNBALL GREASEBALL FROM LONG ISLAND", AS ONE FEMALE AGENT DESCRIBED HIM TO ME. IF YOU WISH TO FIND YOURSELF IN A DUMPY LITTLE HOUSE IN HUNTINGTON, N.Y., INVITED FOR A "HOT TUB" SESSION WITH A MAN OLD ENOUGH TO BE YOUR FATHER, THEN DOWLING IS WHO YOU SHOULD DEAL WITH, AS THAT IS EXACTLY WHAT SHALL TRANSPIRE. THAT, AND NOTHING ELSE.

INCIDENTALLY, JOHN... THE CORRECT SPELLING IS "BIGOT", AND NOT "BIGIT"...

UNFORTUNATELY, THERE HAS BEEN A SAD UPDATE TO THIS EPIC SAGA. I HAD PUT TOGETHER MR. DOWLING TOGETHER WITH A VERY PROMINENT FASHION MODEL, FOR BUSINESS PURPOSES. ONLY. JOHN DIT NOT QUITE GRASP FULLY THE DEFINITION OF THE PHRASE, "STRICTLY BUSINESS". HE SUGGESTED A PERSONAL RELATIONSHIP TO THIS YOUNG WOMAN, MORE THAN 20 YEARS HIS JUNIOR, TEN MINUTES AFTER MEETING WITH HER. SHE BECAME QUITE ALARMED, AND THIS ALSO SET OFF ALARM BELLS WITH ME. NONETHELESS, SHE DECIDED TO SEE IF IT WOULD WORK. IN RAPID FASHION, IT BECAME OBVIOUS THAT JOHN COULD NOT BE WORKED WITH, AT ANY LEVEL WHATSOEVER. SHE TERMINATED THE RELATIONSHIP ON A PERMANENT BASIS, EXPLAINING TO ME THAT DOWLING WAS JUST TOO "WEIRD". WE LWFT IT AT THAT. TWO MONTHS LATER, THIS GIRL RECEIVES AN EMAIL FROM JOHN DOWLING, VERY CHEERY IN NATURE, EXPLAINING THAT HE IS IN KENT, OHIO, VIRTUALLY BLOCKS FROM THE GIRLS RESIDENCE, AND WISHES TO SEE HER. THE EMAILS CONTINUED, DESPITE HER BEST EFFORTS TO IGNORE THEM. EVENTUALLY, THEY CEASED, AS DID DOWLING'S PERSISTENCE. IT JUST SEEMS A BIT DISTRESSING THAT DOWLING WOULD FOLLOW THIS GIRL OVER 500 MILES, ALL THE WAY TO KENT, OHIO, AFTER BEING EMPHATICALLY INSTRUCTED BY HER TO FORGET THAT SHE EXISTS, AND TO HAVE ABSOLUTELY NOTHING TO DO WITH HER. OTHER SIMILAR COMPLAINTS HAVE SURFACED RECENTLY, AS REGARDS THE "TITS AND ASS PHOTOGRAPHER FROM LONG ISLAND". NOTHING IN LIFE SEEMS TO BE MORE DISGUSTING THAN A WANNABE PHOTOGRAPHER WELL INTO HIS FIFTIES PURSUING RELATIONSHIPS WITH YOUNG WOMEN IN THEIR EARLY TWENTIES, WHILE USING A DECREPIT WEBSITE AND A CAMERA TO DO IT.

I RECENTLY TOOK A CALL FROM THE DISTRESSED MOTHER OF A PROMINENT NYC FASHION MODEL, WHO LIVES IN THE STATE OF OHIO. MUCH TO MY PRESENT REGRET, I HAD PUT MR. DOWLING AND THIS YOUNG WOMAN TOGETHER FOR THE SOLE AND SPECIFIC PURPOSE OF CONDUCTING BUSINESS. I TOOK GREAT PAINS TO EXPLAIN TO DOWLING IN GREAT DETAIL THAT THIS RELATIONSHIP WAS TO BE NOTHING MORE THAN THAT, AND THAT IT COULD NEVER BE ANYTHING MORE THAN THAT. MUCH TO MY ALARM, THIS YOUNG WOMAN TOLD ME THAT, AFTER TEN MINUTES OF MEETING HER, DOWLING HAD SUGGESTED THAT THEY PURSUE A "PERSONAL RELATIONSHIP", IF SHE WOULD BE AMENEBLE TO THAT. THE GIRL PRETTY MUCH BLEW HER TOP, AND EMPHATICALLY TOLD DOWLING THAT IT WOULD STOP RIGHT THEN AND THERE, OR SHE WOULD END IT, RIGHT THEN AND THERE. FOR THE MOMENT, DOWLING COMPLIED. LATER, DOWN THE ROAD, DOWLING BECAME INSISTENT ON A RELATIONSHIP. THUSLY, THIS YOUNG WOMAN ENDED THIS RELATIONSHIP ALTOGETHER, AND WENT BACK TO OHIO. NOW, THE FACT HAS BEEN BROUGHT TO MY ATTENTION THAT DOWLING ACTUALLY WENT TO KENT, OHIO, STAYED AT A HOTEL BUT 1/2 MILE AWAY, AND REPEATEADLY ATTEMPTED TO MAKE EMAIL CONTACT WITH HER, AS SHE REFUSED TO ACCEPT HIS REPEATED PHONE CALLS. THE MOM RELATED TO ME THAT HIS REPEATED EMAILS MADE BOTH OF THEM "NERVOUS, AND UNCOMFORTABLE."SHE REFUSED TO ANSWER ANY OF HIS EMAILS, AND EVENTUALLY, GETTING THE MESSAGE, DOWLING WENT AWAY. IN THIS THREAD, I HAVE PREVIOUSLY DESCRIBED DOWLING AS "HARMLESS". NOW, I FIND THAT I AM BEGINNING TO RETHINK THAT TRAIN OF THOUGHT. WHAT SORT OF RATIONAL MAN IN HIS MID FIFTIES PURSUES A ROMANTIC / SEXUAL RELATIONSHIP WITH A YOUNG WOMAN MORE THAN THIRTY YEARS HIS JUNIOR? THIS YOUNG WOMAN AND HER MOM BECAME SO CREEPED OUT BY THIS, THAT THEY ARE CONSIDERING OBTAINING A CIVIL RESTRAINING ORDER IN THE STATE OF OHIO. I REITERATE: IF YOU ARE A YOUNG WOMAN IN LONG ISLAND, BE VERY, VERY CAREFUL, IF YOU ARE APPROACHED BY JOHN DOWLING. TRUST ME, WHEN I SAY THAN NO GOOD WILL COME OF MEETING HIM.

My 19 year old daughter was approached by a man claiming to be a "New York City fashion photographer, and "Top Model Scout". He gave her a business card with the name "John Dowling", and printed on it were very tacky pictures of scantilly clad young women, none of whom could be described as being very attractive. This individual told my daughter that he had the "connections" in the model industry to make her "famous", and that it was just a matter of time before this would happen. When he became very pushy and overly suggestive with Elyse, I immediately conducted an internet search. I saw here on this site where there were many entries under "John Dowling", and not a single one of them was flattering. I called New York City model agencies, three of them. Two of them knew who he was, and recommended that we stay far away from Mr. Dowling. Accordingly, we have decided to do exactly that. I found his "website" to be very difficult to navigate, and extremely sexist, in nature. I have nineteen year old daughter to think of, and cannot possibly allow her to become involved with a man that a prominent New York City model agency described to me as "a creep". After seeing the amount of complaints about this man, i decided to contribute.

DEAR JILLYGIRL. I INTEND TO STAY ON THIS GUY LIKE WHITE ON RICE, AND DO SO IN A PERFECTLY LEGITIMATE MANNER. THIS GUY IS NOTHING OTHER THAN A "CHICK CHASING" SLOB. HIS PHOTOGRAPHY IS ABSOLUTELY HORRID, IF YOU HAVE SEEN IT. NEW YORK AGENCIES AND MODELS ALIKE GENERALLY LAUGH AT IT. I HAVE SPOKEN TO TWO PROMINENT MODEL AGENCIES IN NEW YORK, AND ONE IN FLORIDA WHO TELL ME THAT THEY WILL SHOW HIM THE DOOR, IF HE ATTEMPTS TO CONTACT THEM. SOME PEOPLE IN FLORIDA WHO I AM VERY FRIENDLY WITH HAVE RELATED TO ME THAT HIS PERSONAL APPEARANCE WAS SLOVENLY, WHEN THEY MET HIM IN FLORIDA. THE VERY BEST THING TO DO HERE IS TO RIP UP WHATEVER BUSINESS CARD HE GAVE YOU, AND SIMPLY IGNORE HIM HE KNOWS NO ONE, AND NO LEGITIMATE ADVERTISING OR MODEL AGENCIES WILL HAVE ANYTHING TO DO WITH HIM. HE RECENTLY FOLLOWED A GIRL TO OHIO, WHERE HE ATTEMPTED TO MAKE CONTACT WITH HER. I ORIGINALLY BELIEVED HIM TO BE FAIRLY HARMLESS, UNTIL THIS LATEST INCIDENT OCCURRED. STAY FAR, FAR AWAY FROM THIS OLD PERVERT. HE IS IN HIS MID FIFTIES, AND IS SLIME BALLING UPON YOUNG WOMEN, IN THEIR TEENS, AND EARLY TWENTIES. WHAT DOES THIS SAY TO YOU? STEER CLEAR!

This guy is a SLIMEBALL! He came up to me in a shopping mall parking lot, and said that I should be a model, that i was beautiful, that I would make it in NYC, with his help.He promised to put me on his website, he called it weepwa. He said that he was connected in the model business all over the country, and could help me big time. I met him the next weekend at his home in Huntington. It was pretty dirty, and looked very unorganized. I got suspicious when he said that I could not bring my boyfriend with me. He began to give me the creeps, then he said that do make it in the model business, that i would have to do nude photography. I snuck into the bathroom, and called my boyfriend, who came and got me out of there. OMG! A photographer friend of mine referred me to a NYC photographer to talk to, who gave me a history on this guy. He said that John Dowling does this stuff all the time, that it is the only way he tries to pick up girls. When I showed up, his "office" was really his house. it was pretty dirty, and it looked like he didn't take a bath in a week. IF THIS SLIMEBALL COMES UP TO YOU, AND SAYS THAT HE WANTS TO HELP YOU BECOME A MODEL, HE IS JUST TRYING TO HAVE SEX WITH YOU! STAY AWAY FROM HIM! HE GAVE ME THE CREEPS!

Setting the Record Straight, so to speak …. regarding the Talented John Dowling {lol}

Salutations All Metro-NYC Model Scene Readers,
For starters, in order is deference to the late-1980’s -- then much revered -- emergent Fashion | Beauty Test-Photographer, one John Dowling, whose career had been bent [again, back then …] on a meteoric rise in what was a super-hot, models and magazines (his work had been featured in numerous “start-up” publications), Metro-NYC-based, fashion world.
John’s talent proved inspirational to many.
Underscoring John’s rapid, if brief, rise, was the fact that John Dowling took terrific and compelling, while fashion savvy, utterly enticing (read: attractive and interesting face pics) headshots.
His pictures of new female and male models were much sought after by for top-modeling-agencies’ for their head sheets, and for said models’ composite (NYC | Milan) aka Zed cards (LA | London | Milan).
John had been a much sought-out and respected new photographic resource (in today’s parlance) aka photo talent; his reign, if that, spanned approximately a 48 month period.
Too, it had been asserted by some adherents that he himself, as a youngster, had been a high-earning pre/teen commercial model.
John’s photographic talents were sought out by many top-agencies’ bookers/agents and their models, as were the likes of other selective “test” photographers of that period in NYC (those mentioned, to greater or less degrees rated as sort of peers) …. Eg, Dennis Butler, Bruce Gillette, Reilly Ward (RW) [this last entry was, perhaps, the most talented … though reclusive, aloof, rich and the hardest to access | he proved by far the most selective of all … he deemed John’s work only as worthy and memorable, second to his own … and he would recommend John to any model he himself deemed worthy of a test/booking: referred many to John for more testing/editorial bookings, so that they might build, as a new face, their portfolio; again, John and Reilly only tested great new faces whom had already been filtered through highly selective ranks of eg, the likes of top agents such as Jan Gonet (Nytro; Manner; Elite Men … Select), Joey Hunter (Wilhelmina (sic) Men | Ford Men, NYC) and the like ilk], ….. as an esteemed and highly gifted (but, alas, an undisciplined and somewhat erratic, self-taught, yet high-caliber capable, output photographer …. wielded (and perhaps stills wields) scads of potential and opportunities for remunerative successes (should he ever adopt rigor, discipline and tenacity; avoiding distractions and wrong paths) that he seemed to have taken for granted …. he easily diverted himself and his talent by the engaging in the ages-old, precarious and dreaded PARTY PRINCIPLE, which crippled so many during the decadent late 1980’s, despite the dreaded emergence and growing fear of the era’s woeful STDs transmission, so to speak. Some had been frightened off from testing with John when he suddenly developed a very noticeable extreme hive-like skin condition on his arms, neck and one side of his lower-left facial areas: some wonder if that portended to the then rampant ….. disease, often associated with …. which was known to ravish and vanquish many creative types in NYC.
John’s counter-productive personality quirks included eg, (a) a bit of a silly grandiloquent egotist [his speech often trumpeted “I”, (b) he conveyed an indictable slippery character eg, he was known to deliver “tough-guy talk” and boosted “power-grab blurbs”; his assertions and often misstatements made some chuckle (behind his back) has is profuse “promises promises …. of high-roller-dom”, and (c) despite those pitfalls, John’s affability shown through; he attracted new friends despite his puff-fish posturing, since overall John radiated an party-animal magnetism; his presence was generally positive, and that would prove appealing on some level, if for a brief time, to most acquaintances (professional or otherwise): (d) perhaps, too, John was |is too much influenced by eg, the salient inculcation-driven themes ie, those brandished in such contemporaneous flicks (primary and sub-textual themes) that influenced the era mentioned, think eg, The Eyes of Lara Mars, Network, Animal House and later Lipstick and Wall Street {see them if you have not already, you will get the picture … literally; listen to the English techno sound of the era …. their lyrics …. of the era too eg, M-TV …. Hunger Like a Wolf …. Bands: Flock of Seagulls, Modern English, The Thomson Twins, The Smiths, Cure, Depeche Mode …. }.
John’s work swung -- unfortunately it proved nearly as unpredictable as his moods -- from superb high-fashion beauty imagery with a decidedly “old Hollywood rawness and high-key butterfly lighting appeal” (again, for top modeling agencies’ new faces) -- both female and male models (think eg, John Gallagher, Scott Benoit; Maria von Hartz; later, Cathy Fedoruk) -- to an edgy decidedly ‘80’s sleek-look that used semi-complex | mingled light sources. At some point, John seems to have forsaken those motifs for his duds ie, those of his pics
{due to, perhaps, poor photo-rep advice, and for some unknowable and poor reasoning …. he miss-steered talent came to target, more and more, an avid pursuit, capture and display of what amounted a silly portfolio that miss-advertised his own work, hailing it as an ode to “near miss Sports Illustrated ésque ‘ism” ie, scantily beach attired vamps splayed on barren beaches, ripe for the picking, so to speak ie, pics (thought to be the “money trail”)}
that mimic the era’s other pin-up pics variety, which seemed then and seem now better suited to some tell-tale low-caliber photographer’s non-talent (not John’s talent ….) the sort who survives on output of cheesy “skin calendars”; sad fact, John sank into smut imagery; but, true, too, is that otherwise, John’s real talents, nonetheless, laid and lays (pun) in beautiful and compelling fashion portraiture and editorial shots; perhaps …. he was ill-brainwashed into chasing “fast money making schemes” eg, assuming selling skin pin-up schemes, which seems important to some … but, he may, ultimately, return to and reclaim his true talents …. and deserved market-place positioning?
Rest assured that John Dowling was and remains a naturally talented, if undisciplined and erratic, photographer …. when he is “on” his fashion portraiture imagery work can best most others …. but he desperately requires gifted stylists, hair and makeup people. He understands more than the mere rudiments of facial planes, complex | combination lighting schemes, composition, juxtaposition of thematic elements, angle and delivers a certain, varied and conveys appropriate punch in his facial imagery: natively!
John’s work needs additional polish, which would be imparted via discipline and rigor; that achievement may prove to clean up his product … ensure proper placement of his raw talent; which itself puts him streets ahead of most highly trained and polished …. but lesser talents; John’s raw talent cannot be manufactured; it remains intact, lifelong, and for that John must be reckoned with as a photographic talent: spacial relationships, within the measurement of IQ realms, surely rate high for him in certain categories, rest assured … a rare find, he.
Despite his erratic and often sloppy work ie, for all his tell-tale lack of rigor and stylistic flaws, compounded his “whiz bang-up speedy approach” that sometimes inflicts still further careless errors …. sabotaging refined “perfectly styled” imagery, despite that, his best output did and can shine brilliantly for the ages ….
Indeed, back in the day, so to speak, John (metaphorically it seems) had a pet killer-snake -- a large one that ate rats -- couped up in its glass aquarium, living in his (John’s) studio | duplex apartment on NYC’s upper Eastside; often that reality ….. resoundingly paralleled his “sly as fox egotism”, coupled with a too high and lurid sort of AC | DC libido” [yeah … that too; but, that is to be expected …. all you moral majority – paternalistic moralizing types -- can stuff it]; indeed, John had | has his reptilian side, to say the least.
Beyond all those negative but frank comments, John Dowling was and remains much loved and respected by some photo enthusiasts; most of the highly selective young gals and guys models, over the years, that he has photographed successfully in Metro-NYC can and would attest to …. John’s talents; if a bit whacky, judged by certain standards, he never proved himself a bore … rude, brusque and dismissive, yes …. bent on erratic behavior, that too … yet development by him of a glimmer of a more solid stance; one that shine through now and then would and could serve him, his personality and talent well into the future ... especially, since so much of his initially emergent talent and currency had been squandered during that brief and daring CLASSICALLY GOODLOOKING MODELS era of those mentioned 48 months, specifically ranging from late 1986 through late '89 period when John had emerged on the Metro-NYC modeling scene as a force to be reckoned with my most in-the-know.
Yes, even the likes of eg, John Casablancas, Monique Pillard and Chips (all Elite), along with eg, Francis Grill (Click) thought highly of the young John Dowling, as an emerging photographic talent: to that I attest to personally here.
HIGH GROUND: Assiduous review of the assorted maniacal ALL CAPS posts, which have prompted this reply …
{NOTE: All CAPS rates tantamount, online, to SHOUTING … nonstop, during a face-to-face conversation: John resist being baited by this Clayton fellow whomever he may be {his talent or lack of it, whichever the case, is currently unknown by this contributor}
require change. Kindly, curb that antic ... otherwise, what carries insufferable lunatic "soap box" orations; predilections of nut-cases; that proves utterly repugnant to sane minds: lol. Okay? Best regards all!
