...of pretty girl film photos.

If you stick a pretty girl in the frame does not mean you have a pretty film photo.
Many such photos have bad posing, bad expressions, bad lighting and bad composition.

I don't mind looking at bad photos from photographers just beginning or looking to improve.
Unfortunately, many pretty girl photos are usually from people who consider themselves skilled and would throw a hissy fit if you suggested something in their shot needed improvement.
I'm staying away from anywhere that has lots of pretty girl photos on display.

Whatever. It isn't like photographing a car or a vase. An understanding and perfectly moral relationship is required between photographer and model to get the best out of that kind of shoot. There are many who did it well. One that comes to mind is Peter Gowland. His wife was always present.

They must be good at something to have pretty girls pose for them.
