Completely new to this.. what are the normal rates to charge as a beginning model.. doing topless, lingerie and glamour shoots?

Thank you!

As you have a very limited portfolio at the moment it is not that likely you will get the better photographers looking to pay you. At the point where you do get offers - you are probably looking at £15-£20 per hour tops.

Be careful of early contacts - there are some less than desirable types fall on "fresh meat"

You should probably start by getting a few TF shoots under your belt to build a portfolio which will attract photographers willing to pay you.

As above, avoid dodgy offers and choose photographers whose work will improve your port.

Good luck.

I pretty much agree with the above.

Except that many models seem to have varying rates according to the style of images the photographer produces. Rates for 'tacky' am-glam are often higher - perhaps £45 per hour - particularly for new models as those photographers hustle for the opportunity to be amongst the first to shoot her without any clothes on.

You're gorgeous! I'd say be wary of anyone offering you nude work straight away considering you don't have any professional pictures in your profile yet - the likelihood is they just want to see you naked! I'd do a TF shoot with a good local photographer, working up to whatever levels you are comfortable with and take it from there Internet modelling is hard to get your head around if you're new to the industry, so if you have any questions etc feel free to PM me! <3

Particularly as she does not offer levels above lingerie on her profile - though topless is mentioned in the post.  Tempting those who push levels if they think she is not sure how far to go.............

Maybe approach some photographers with good references in your area on a TF basis to kick-start your portfolio.

Good luck, I'm sure you'll do well.

If a photographer offers you £xx and you're happy with £xx then take it.

You will get no end of advice on here telling you to do loads of TF shoots first, but if you were near me I'd pay you.

Good luck!

But - (and this applies to TF and paid shoots) do check references carefully first by contacting models who have shot with the photographer.
