Inappropriate use of a Stock Photo?  ;D You're right, lots of tiny entry level cameras and lenses, what no cell phone?

The article was from 2017..A lot has happen in the stock business in the last two years.

Like what for example that applies to the topic of What's happening with Yuri Acrus? Keep in mind he owns a studio,  and building, runs a school, has millions of dollars, owns an agency and is an IS/Getty exclusive, 115,611 Peopleimages stock pictures, 15,164 Yuri Arcurs stock pictures and images, 3,513 yuri_arcurs stock videos, 8,495 peopleimages stock videos

Do you honestly think he's hurting or in trouble, like some have suggested?

Yes we have been knocked down, in fact since 2012, doesn't seem to be slowing down Yuri at all?

Nice building, from the outside. Good for him. Jealous.

From this link, it reads like he is doing just fine.

I was also looking at min wage in South Africa. It is something like $1.50USD per hour. Of cause models would earn much higher, I can hardly believe how cheap it can be in SA. Good for him to relocate to somewhere much cheaper. I personally wouldn't do it. I'm lucky enough to live in the first world, and that is where I'm staying.

Never been to Cape Town but I'd agree with you on what I imagine it's like. I also think climate, what's the weather like, a bit on the warm side for my taste. What's the political atmosphere?

Not sure about 3rd world, as it's a tourist destination, big city, and should have many choices for different living and financial status.

I wonder how many Danish models there are.  ;)

Oh wait, I get it now, Yuri is doing so bad that he had to move to a third world country to stay in business. LOL  ;D

Alas, poor Yuri! I knew him, Charged: a fellow
of infinite white, of most excellent photo: he hath
borne me on his back a thousand times; and now, how
abhorred in my imagination it is!

Yeah it's a classic tragedy.

I guess no one bothered to look at Yuri's Instagram account.  He was looking for "new faces" for his portfolio.  The address listed for the casting call was in Cape Town.
yes I don't do Instagram....that was for January 2019 though last post Nov 18

It was actually an Aug 30, 2019 post for a casting on Sept 2, 2019.  A little over two weeks ago.
