After reading another poor model's experience, I felt the need to expose this guy as the unprofessional he is.
Go to any of his "marketing tool" websites Something he wouldn't need if he was oh so successful. I'd think his website would be enough). Supershoots. Modelmayhem. Twitter. Facebook. Etc. Read only a sentence or two of what he says.
It is quite clear he is pompous, conceited, and has an over inflated opinion of himself. Not only does he curse out models he has worked with but despite his "busy work schedule," he has the time to bash models and other photographers on forums. Seriously. Complete strangers the don't affect his life. This guy has alot of anger and if you state your opinion and it doesn't agree with his "I'm God's gift to photography" persona, he will go out of his way to chew you out, you're not even talking to him. Not the best way to sell yourself when you spit out nasty things about people, now is it?
What professional photographer who is swamped with work has the time to go off on people completely irrevelevent to their lives? One who is bored and out of work because he cheats his models out of money, that's the kind.
Moreover, he is quite demanding of "high caliber, agency represented" models to work with (how that has anything to do with only accepting paid work, I have no idea....) and nowhere on any of his websites do you see him agency approved himself."
I don't know how nasty people like this make it in the world but sooner or later, he will cause his own end. I just had to put my two sense out there. Saadiq is a nightmare. Think twice before you work with him. Any photographer who feels the need to belittle starting out models and other photographers is clearly not the kind of guy I want to work with .
