This! If a project is fun or a new photographer would genuinely like help then I do TFP (free shoots) but I've put so much more money into modelling than I've gotten out of it. But it's a passion of mine so I deal with it. But when photographers demand pay and state that their camera was £X We find it rude and a little insulting. Like say models just turn up and stand there. The preparation for a shoot can be madness and with constant pressure models have to constantly work out and watch what they eat, whereas the photographer can eat and do whatever outside of the shoot. All I'm saying is we all put a lot in to reach our dreams, so don't think that models are just lazy girls looking for easy money. Let me tell you, it's not easy! So please think about that when you think you should be the one paid or think rates are too high, please think of this. I totally agree that photographers deserve to be paid too but this is often dependant on your project and why you want the model in the first place. (See 11) .
