The hard fact is that their understanding of "the basics" is probably different from yours,

Perhaps they simply don't think you are worth your rates?
Modesty is just arrogance in stealth mode

I expect most photographers seek to negotiate modelling rates. I guess though the issue is peoples' varying assessment of what constitutes negotiation and what is nothing more than taking the pee.

However if someone's claiming poverty, for whatever reason, that sounds more like an appeal for charity which kinda puts them firmly in the latter category

I have worked with Cody, which I suspect sd hasn't, and can confirm she is a talented professional model who charges competitive rates. She is also charming, with an easy manner. Its certainly true that those with less experience would learn a lot by working witb her.

Actually sd, have you ever worked with anyone on this site because we never see you post any work....but that's the point isn't it....much easier to get attention just posting negative worthless opinions, as ever ...and including this one, based on no experience or fact?

Its obvious you get some pleasure from your endless worthless vitriolic diatribes...you might be able to get help you know?

I think this is the case
I see this said in casting calls before I have even got in touch with rates so it's not often a personal thing

Some models I would look to negotiate with, some I wouldn't. I suspect Cody is one that I wouldn't because of her experience.
People will always try to reduce cost. It's a fact of life

I do t see the problem. If they cant afford a rate and seek to negotiate its the models choice to negotiate or not. Not everyone will think your worth the stated rate. Some will.
