Hi guys.

Very interested moving to another level in my photography. Shooting some nude. Nothing like porn more boudoir and tasteful which you can show on here.

Many thanks Paul

It varies with each model. Some will scrape the barrel at as low as £15 an hour, others could charge up to 50 an hour.

If you place a casting for around £25 an hour I suspect you'll get plenty of interest. You'll probably also get one or two models saying they're keen but are looking for £30. Just as you'll probably also get one or two saying they'd be happy to TF. Although if I was hiring a model I'd tend to approach one directly with an offer I thought was fair, rather than place a casting. Never been turned down yet! Beware the rates models sometimes advertise in their profile notes - they're almost always aspirational rather than realistic. And don't be afraid to negotiate [efficiently] - models expect it. Good luck NB by efficiently I mean make her an offer which she is capable of accepting in a single response without requiring further clarification. Message 'ping pong' will do you no favours.

I see you have a casting now for 'Erotic Nude'. Many [most?] models will interpret that as a desire to shoot adult levels without wanting to pay adult rates. Since it seems out of kilter with what you said above I thought I'd mention it.

To save embarrassment and awkwardness, I find it good practice to book a model for one level higher than what you're intending to shoot (especially when shooting levels like lingerie or nude that can be borderline).

I found employing an experienced model for my first nude shoot made it a far more relaxing shoot, her confidence helped me no end. A neewbie might make things tense for both of you,I still struggle with the correct terminology to use for certain body parts with a given model so we have a conversation before we start, always turns into a good ice breaker
