The very first question before a photographer go and shoot a model is probably the intention and purpose of the shoot. What are you shooting for? Is it for your portfolio or for some potential ad or for your own stock library.

You are not going to pay peanuts to a professional model and have her pix on a big company ad all over the world.
Hope this helps.
Nonetheless, pls ensure that you get a copy of the model release for every shoot, or else, the shooting session is as good as none and it is your responsibility to ensure that the photo is not misused in bad taste.
