I never thought of it.

But I guess I would at least make sure that nudity/sexual themes were at least completely separate, if not completely absent in the group.

It wouldn't occur to me to begin with, but then I think I'd only submit it to a group where the mature content was completely separated or not present.

I pretty much refuse to shoot anyone underage. I just never want to have a parent look at my gallery and freak out over my other things.

I don't shoot under 18s for my own art or personal projects, but when a commercial client books the models for a (fully dressed!) fashion shoot I don't view that as the same thing at all.

Commercial I see as fine, I just get nervous with parents etc since my work can get pretty gorey. I am going to do some fashion work at my school so that may help me with my anxieties.

Provided that the groups were not posting nudes purely for prurient interest, I would have no issues with it, provided that said groups had clearly delineated folders that separated mature content from other non-mature content.

When I was doing photography I only shot with models who were of age. Mostly because of the hassle of obtaining consent and the inherent complications arising from requiring parents to be present at any given shoot.

Now I just draw and don't need to worry about such things. ;)

I don't shoot anyone under 18 for my own personal projects, mostly because I shoot things that I wouldn't feel comfortable having photos of an under 18 anywhere near.

It really depends on the PERSONALITY of the Group more than the CONTENT of the Group.

Granted, I don't work with underage models as a body painter (I could tell stories.....) but would not deny a Group from sharing the art if the ONLY criteria were age/mandatory MC tag.

"It really depends on the PERSONALITY of the Group more than the CONTENT of the Group"

I hadn't thought about it like that. Wise words indeed :aww:
