However, the model expects her expenses to be paid, and expects to get the going rate from day 1 - the make-up girl has to pay her own travel, lunch, parking etc and gets paid more with experience - some of the new girls coming on here are asking the same (if not moer) than the models who have been here for years...
Nearly all the high earners in the industry are webcam or late night television girls who rarely model...they are the type of girls who would have been models 5/6 years ago, but there is no money in it for them now. I shot a popular TV girl a few weeks ago, we paid her a rate that most models can't even dream of. It was her first photoshoot outwith the channels own publicity shots in 2 years. What she got out of it was a high profile shoot which will help maintain her popularity on webcam which is becoming more important as TV wages fall, what I got out of it was exclussive and very saleable content. But as she told me...although it was a high fee it was less than she earns in 2 TV shifts and the same as she was earning for *1 shift a couple of years ago...and on the TV or webcam she doesn't have to show the world her foo-foo. A lot of the girls who would have been on these sites 5 years ago are choosing the TV/ webcam route....but *TV chat wages are falling rapidly for all but the very top girls, webcamming will probably go the same way. Nothing lasts forever... The latest refuge for the best looking models who want high earnings are off-internet exclussive limited member paysites and private collector groups.Gerry99111The other thing that frequent shooters of glamour and adult must have realised is that a reasonable proportion of these models have discovered webcaming which pays significantly more than any internet modelling. Some of them I am sure only need to model to create a fan base to get punters onto their webcam work and will cut down on modelling putting an upward pressure on rates for some
I stopped because even when I was earning a lot, it wasn't worth it. Internet models are treated terribly in a lot of ways, and it was taking too much of a toll on my mental and physical health.
