$$$ vs. Art

I know that, if I want to make money, the thing which pays best is softcore nude images of fit women alone or in fake lesbian layouts.

I know that a number of my models are annoyed that I refuse to shoot the fake lesbian scenarios they want me to.

I know that shooting varied body types makes people feel okay about being unpleasant at me.

I know that shooting men or couples who actually love each other is a sure way to get people to be unpleasant at me.

I know that religious nutjobs have infiltrated and co-opted my community to the point of making it almost unrecognizable at this point.

But I’m an artist. I don’t feel like I can just do what pays and call it a day.

What would you do in my shoes?
