Hi Gabriella, In my experience , you will only get paid if you take at least some of your clothes off. Amateur photographers just won't pay for clothed modelling & the pro's will want you to be very very special before they hire you.



This is obviously not true, I always pay and am quite happy to shoot fashio/headshots most of the time.

Obviously not what she wanted to hear (she has now left the site).

I am often amazed at the number of girls who come on here to ask a question but then quickly disappear afterwards.



Due to some crass answers like "You only get paid to take your clothes off or unless you're someone they are looking for" etc...

I think some people should really think before they answer

EDIT: Oh apparently the model has changed her name on here

May well be nothing to do with her post.

Many models get swamped by chancers and level pushers when they join and if I was guessing, I would think that a far more likely scenario



Yep, a much as people want to blame flakey, wannabe models, it seems more common to be things like feeling uncomfortable with the reality of the situation;dealing with such close ties to the adult community, NOT normal to those coming in from the outside,  having to deal with unprofessional situations that they aren't used to having to put up with, being overcome with unsuitable offers, leading them to believe they have gone about things the wrong way, being told they are unsuited to modelling, and not uncommonly being encouraged to work TFP to build up a portfolio and then not recieving images for a shoot.

The attitudes these days seems to be newbies should be chucked in the deep end and then berated if they drown.

It's interesting the mix of responses.

The work available for a model varies greatly from personal portfolios to corporate.

The answer to how much you should charge is the same as any commercial transaction. Whenever a product is sold, the success of the sale of that product comes down to the demand and perceived value.

I've met models who see themselves as worth such a high rate that they rarely get any paid work. The I've seen models who are willing to work for a reasonable rate and they experience a regular flow of work.

Eg: Model 'A' charges $100 an hour and gets $10,000 work in a year.
Model 'B' charges $35 an hour and makes $35,000 work in a year.

Ultimately you've got to work out a starting point, especially if you're new. Some models like to charge more, but what value is the person hiring the model getting? Are they getting any extra value in paying more or are they better of just looking for another model.

Ive had a few and have a few photoshoots upcoming that are paid, i have only found photographers are willing to pay if your willing to do erotic or nude or implied. But average has been £300 plus travel expenses for 3 hour bookings ranging from clothed, erotic, commercial, and nude.
