This pricing page is more complex than others as rates are variable based on model experience.
I will have graphics that lay it all out, but in designing this page, I'll put it down in text format first and work out the graphics later.
I highly respect the work that models do. I have worked with a moderate number of models and have seen a wide range of skill.
Please forgive any directness, but a model is not just some cute girl who wiggles in front of the camera hoping to do something right.
A model not only understands posing, but has an awareness of lighting. She can produce a number of expressions on command. She is professional.
So, I have worked out a formula for when I pay a model and when a model pays me and it's entirely based on experience.
For the moment, I will work on a 3 to 1 ratio. I have been a WORKING photographer for 13 years.
Thus, if you have been modeling professionally for under four years, you will pay me.
If you have been a model for exactly four years, we work on a TFP basis.
And if you have been a model for more than four years, I will pay you.
It also matters what we're creating. Having done 3000 portrait photo shoots, of beautiful men and women
in natural light or at the Arboretum, I don't especially need any more of those shots.
I hire models for fine art fashion, very glamorous dressed in impeccable outfits that make a statement.
I also hire models for tasteful fine art nude photography projects that I can use in my portfolio.
Again, based on model experience in ratio to my experience as a photographer.
Needless to say, models are safe working with me. I don't do creepy and I am highly respectful of the model as a professional.
More graphics and price/rate breakdowns at a later date. I am very busy just now.
