I am far from being a pro photographer but I have never paid a model and very few on hear I would pay ,
Not being rude but it takes some hours of work with editing, and there are not many models that you don't have to work on. sorry no offence to anyone

Maybe you'd look less of a fool if you at least glanced at the thread before posting.
Like any dealer he was watching for the card that is so high and wild he'll never need to deal another...

When you are dead, you do not know that you are dead. All of your pain is felt by others. The same thing happens when you are stupid.

What an extraordinary thing to say... the amount of time you choose to spend retouching images has absolutely no bearing on whether a model's time is worth paying for, either in cash or trade goods (TF*).

Catch 22 - agencies arn't going to put a pap on the books who isn't any good and experienced in the first place.



And those people will have worked their way up, earned their stripes and put in some hard work and dedication to get there.

Thess days, everyone wants a backdoor in and an express elevator to the top. I used to gets loads of people contacting me asking, basically, how to be me, but when I told them, they didn't want to put the effort in, they were expecting me to reveal some secret that would allow them to pack their safe, boring job in on Friday, and start shooting for blue chip magazines on Monday. There is no secret, hard work and ability gets you there, along with a little luck.
