Now I'm not out to cause a bun fight but I just saw -
'I'm a semi-professional full time model'.
No disrespect, no downer, no axe to grind, just had a tough day and little things please......., would happily book her - just a smile.

I don't get it. What's the punchline?

Full time semi professional does seem something of an oxymoron.

She works a full week but is only paid half the time?

Or maybe, she works a full week, but only behaves herself every other shoot?

I think she does a lot of tfp which makes her a full-time model , but not paid for all of her modelling.
Like any dealer he was watching for the card that is so high and wild he'll never need to deal another...

But in fairness it's only 'us' that define these things... I know we all define it and so does mr wikipedia as part time but it could mean just not totally experienced. As in a lot of models on here. And to be fair I've yet to meet a really full time model.. ie, one that models for 38 hours a week with 4 weeks paid holiday :-)

You've obviously never been self employed. 

There are lots of sole traders (including models and photographers) who can't afford to take a holiday (either financially or because they feel they can't just close their shop for a few weeks).

But if she said she was a professional you would moan that she was not that good?
