You guys didn't see the pictures of this dude. I know it's wrong to judge a book by it's cover, but I wouldn't even want this guy on my property, and especially not in my house
He might have made a great prop.
I did have something similar happen to me. I usually shoot outdoors, but do have stands and a white background at home if needed. A friend of mine had me shoot her portraits during fall, outdoors and she was thrilled. She asked me if would shoot her bikini photos. I did. I had a mutual female friend come with us to the lake and I had my friend help with posing the model. She changed bikinis mid-shoot in the back of my car and the shoot went well. She was thrilled with this set too. She later asked me if I can do her lingerie shots and I said ok, but let's do it indoors. She said ok, but then, it never happened and she soon moved to a different state after marrying her boyfriend. A few months later, she texted me one day, and told me that she'd just got done modeling for a calendar, and she said it was because of my photos of her that she had the confidence and that those photos in her portfolio are what got her the calendar gig.
A few months later, she said she's coming back to my town to visit her old friends and so I asked her if she wanted to do the lingerie shoot. She said she'd love to, but her husband didn't like her modeling and that he'd asked her not to. So, I told her that even though she liked modeling and was disappointed in her husband's opinion, it's not worth hurting the person she loved the most. She agreed. And that was that.
We went to the bars a few times, watched a basketball game, ate out with other friends, but no lingerie shots. Also, the husband in this case was on the other end of the criminal spectrum - he was a very nice, well-educated geek earning decent money doing a good IT job. But, if a photoshoot will cause a rift between two people, then I think it's best to drop the idea. I think your canceling it is the best decision.
