but if I am a professional with a reputation can i not do a bacs especially if they watch me transfer it there and then, or paypal money is instant, is it just because its accepted it happens so I have no choice? If so why,
I find it strange how I can pay a mua and studio in cheques with but models only accept cash
It's probably because, unlike photographers, studio owners and MUA's, who may be active for many years, most models have a very limited shelf life. Especially in the adult industry. What's hot today is gone tomorrow. - So why leave a trail of breadcrumbs for the tax man to follow?
I've used Paypal before and it's easy for both parties to check the transfers, especially since most phones have apps for it. Most of the time I pay cash though although as an amateur I don't need to account for the money trail.
But yes, there are photographers who aren't trustworthy and some of them have a disgusting attitude when it comes to paying models.
this isnt a tax issue for me I dont care what models do thats their choice, I have four shoots of different types next week with about 6 models I dont want to have to get out that much cash, time wise and security wise
its good to know some people do cheque and bacs and paypal I will ask all the models
I often shoot with a model who doesn't like carrying cash so I always pay by BACS before the shoot, I've never had any problems and if it makes her feel safer traveling home I'm only to happy to do it for her.
