There’s an acronym for ordinary guys for use search sites like modelmayhem.com to find a hot chick who might want to pose naked for them. The term, which should be considered derogatory, is “GWC,” which stands for “Guy with Camera.” These are posers who aren’t really interested in taking pictures, if you know what I mean.

I’ve been visiting modelmeyhem.com frequently over the past few days, ever since I had lunch with a fashion photographer friend last week. I won’t mention his name because, while he is certainly not a GWC, he did admit that he thinks of the site as both a professional resource and a kind of job-specific dating service. (Note to my wife, if you read this: I was only doing journalistic research.)
