LARRY ALLEN SHELTON OF LARRY ALLEN PHOTOGRAPHY OR LUMINOSTIX ARTWERKS DID A TFCD SHOOT FOR A MODEL ON 12/26/2009. THE AGREEMENT WAS TRADE FOR TIME. THE WORK WAS EXCEPTIONAL.

THE MODEL LIKED THE SHOOT AND DECIDED SHE WOULD PAY HIM FOR HIS SERVICES NEXT TIME. ON 01/2010, THE SHOOT WAS TO TAKE PLACE AT A OPEN LOCATION. HE ALSO WAS TO ARRANGE A MAKE UP ARTIST HOWEVER THE MAKE UP ARTIST DID NOT SHOW UP (OR HE NEVER CALLED ONE). THE SHOOT WENT ON BECAUSE HE REASSURED THAT HE COULD EDIT THE MAKEUP ON TO THE PHOTOS. HE WAS PAID $150.


ON THE PREVIOUS SHOOT, HE ACQUIRED A LIKING FOR THE MODEL MAYBE EVEN AN INFATUATION AND WHEN IT BECAME CLEAR TO HIM THAT HE WAS NOT GOING TO BE ROMANTICALLY INVOLVED WITH THE MODEL HE BECAME IRATE. AFTER PAYMENT FOR THE PHOTOS HE AGREED TO RETURN THE EDITS WITH SATISFACTORY WORK ON 02/06/10. tHE MODEL DID NOT HEAR FROM HIM IN ABOUT TWELVE DAYS SINCE THE DATE OF THE SHOOT. ON 02/06/10

NOT A CALL, NOT A TEXT, NOT AN EMAIL.

THE MODEL'S AGENT DID EXPOSE L.A.S ON A MODELING SITE ABOUT HIM TAKING THE MODEL'S DECISION NOT TO SLEEP WITH HIM PERSONALLY, AND WITH HASTE HE RESPONDED, AGAIN IRATE, UNPROFESSIONAL AND DISRESPECTFUL. HE REPLIED WITH MALICIOUS RUMORS THAT THE MODEL SOLICITED SEX AND WAS SOME SORT OF "PROSTITUTE" BECAUSE SHE CONFIDED THAT SHE WAS IN FACT A PROFESSIONAL EXOTIC DANCER.


oN 02/07/2010, HE SENT FOUR PHOTOS SOME TOUCHED WITH PHOTO SHOP AND SOME UNTOUCHED WITH THE WORD "HERE" IN THE EMAIL. HE SMEARED EDIT MAKE-UP ON THE MODEL'S FACE, AND SOME HE DID NOT TOUH KNOWING THAT THEY WER ENOT FINISHED. THE MODEL'S AGENT CONTACTED HIM AND INFORMED THAT THE PHOTOS WERE NOT DONE WELL. HE THEN CLEARED THE MAKE-UP BUT LEFT THE BODY UNTOUCHED.

ALL THE MODEL ASKED WAS TO SMOOTH SKIN AND FLATTEN THE STOMACH, SOMETHING HE DID IN THE FREE TRADE SHOOT.

AFTER RESEARCH, HE IS A MIDDLE SCHOOL HISTORY TEACHER TEACHING IN PALMDALE CA, NOT A PHOTOGRAPHER. NO ONE SIGNED CONTRACTS. AND HE DOES NOT DELETE THE MODELS PHOTOS.

LARRY ALLEN SHELTON DOES NOT SHOW VERSATILITY IN HIS WORK ALL OF HIS MODELS ARE SHOT IN THE SAME LOCATIONS WITH THE SAME POSES. AND HE WILL TAKE YOUR MONEY AND NOT PRODUCE IF HE DOESN'T GET HIS WAY.

BUYER BEWARE.

    I have worked with Larry and he was very professional. We had a release signed and he did everything he agreed to. I am very satisfied with the outcome of the photographs.

    This post is bogus. I performed the work as requested. I offered to reshoot the model because she was dissatisfied with her photos. However, her manager acted very unprofessionally and began posting disparaging remarks about my business and work ethic. In fact, since this posting the manager and models relationship has dissolved and the model has approached me multiple times to work with me. I have, in fact, photographed her since. Further we have maintained a cordial relationship and look forward to shooting together in the future.

    I will post raw and retouched photos of the alleged mutilations after I dig them out of the files.

    The photographer disputes all claims made by the representative of the model formerly known as Substance Truly on the following website, ComplaintsBoard.com. It is unfortunate that the defamatory statements made here can only be disputed and not removed. Such circumstances allow for the dissemination of false and misleading information without regard to its truth or veracity. Be it known though that the model has since fired the representative and has worked with the photographer twice since with satisfactory results.

    The attached photo was taken Summer '2011
