Question: Why does com.apple.photomodel use so much CPU and memory?

Frequently, when I'm using my rMBP 13" (eg browsing, email, etc), I would receive an alert from the Finder that my machine is running critically low on space. Sure enough, when I check the finder, there's less than 1GB of space left (when there is typically about 20GB free). I have to restart the machine to reclaim the space.


Looking at Activity Monitor, a process called com.apple.photomodel is using the must CPU (~35%) and memory (~50GB). I don't have Photos.app open.


Instead of restarting the machine. I instead kill the process and soon afterwards, free space goes back up to what it was before.


What is happening here?


FYI I have 100GB of photos synced with iCloud. On my machine, the Photos Library is only 10GB as I don't have it set to download originals.

MacBook Pro with Retina display, OS X Yosemite (10.10.2)
