wtf are you doing?
i happened to witness a meltdown on marvin’s ig page.
as you know,
marvin has photographed some of the best meat in the business.
whenever he photographs a male model,
they end up getting in essence and doing background work on shows.
well apparently and allegedly,
another photographer didn’t appreciate not getting credit from marvin.
it all started because of travis cure.
this is what marvin posted…
first of all,
would this have been an “issue” if marvin was white?
the posts continued:
i just gotta font:
FOTO 119 WOULD NEVER
TIBO NORMAN WOULD NEVER
everyone looks horrible and unprofessional in the situation,
including the manager to travis cure,
but why did marvin even have to “go there” by posting it?
“when they go low you go high”
michelle obama was speaking truth with that.
why blast this on ig like a regular civilian?
if we really want to go there tho,
i’ve posted marvin’s work on the foxhole plenty of times.
i show him endless amounts of love and appreciation.
not once has he hit me up and said:
“thank you jamari”
he has never highlighted the foxhole on his site.
i would know.
the foxhole is quick to tell me when we get acknowledged.
the foxhole isn’t as big as “bossip” or “essence” tho.
i’m not on the level of a “kid fury” or “jason lee”.
i might not be worthy of that to marvin,
but whenever i post anything/anyone tho,
especially stuff from HIS brand,
everyone is interested.
18 million views,
with 300k+ a month,
through word of mouth is nothing to sneeze at.
so it’s funny to see this all started about credit,
talking about “i’ve been working my ass off for such and such”,
like he said,
i genuinely support him because:
i love his work
he is a black male trying to make a name for himself
he always provides top quality male models
he can be a bit “extra” nowadays.
like when he asked his supporters the other week:
“Do you prefer to make love with the lights on or off?”
you’re a photographer.
not one of the vixens on “the real”.
get it together.
so marvin needs to figure out if he is a:
ratchet d list attentionisto
photographer with real connects and power
…and never do alla “that” again.
lowkey: is marvin the “star” or the models?
