I was recently asked by a model if she could bring a chaparone to a shoot, nothing wrong with that at all. But she also asked me to cover expenses for her chaparone - is this normal.

My initial thoughts are that if the model wants to bring a chaparone then that is her choice but i couldn't see why i should pay further expenses as well as paying the model for her time and her expenses!

I'm not very experienced so wanted to appraise myself of general practice to be sure.

Just as a bit of background there was not a great deal of distance for the shoot. Thanks.

I'd say no.. but I'm not a photographer and I've never taken a chaperone!

Bit of a useless post there eh?

No way should you cover expenses for a chaperone. I know I'm no pro photographer, but that just doesn't sit right.

If I were you, I'd work with someone else. I've never understood the need for chaperones. I know people go on about safety, but seriously you've got more chance getting mugged just walking down the street, and there are lots of stories of girls getting raped by getting into unlicensed minicabs. But you don't see girls taking someone with them every time they need to go somewhere.

Ditch the model. Find someone with more common sense. If you REALLY like the look of the model, then go ahead with the shoot - but just refuse blankly to pay travel expenses. If she doesn't trust you enough not to need a chaperone, she's in the wrong industry.

Chaperones are generally not used in Pro shoots as they are simply not needed but if a model did wish to bring one they should cover the expenses.

The expenses of the model. Yes.

Tell the model this if they dont like then find another model There are plenty around.

There is another Thread currently running referring to a model who would bring her own stylist and security entourage to shoots.
Lucky you didn't try to book her isn't it?

I never pay for chaperones expenses. I can offer a few pics if they want but thats my only offer. The Model should see to chaperones expenses imo
