Hi what is this all about? from what i gather its posing for photos to be sold on to private collectors? is that all?
Occassionally a genuine private collector will commission a photographer to shoot specific content of a specific model which he cannot get anywhere else. ie. niche or fetish content or something which is above the models normal levels. Usually the requested model is well known or has a fan base.
However the most common "private collector" scenario by far is in fact the photographer shooting for his own later enjoyment and using the "private collector" angle as either justification or an excuse to get a model to work to higher levels.
An astute model would be asking quite a few pertinant questions before agreeing to such an adventure...
