Just a question for discussion here.
How much would you pay to shoot a model?
I have come across models whose asking fee is $80 to $150 per hour depending on the theme of the shoot. But I have to question, how do they justify their rates?
Does having a pretty face and sexy body mean they can charge more? But what kind of training did they have?
Several of the models I shot cant pose to save their lives.
I have to guide them to pose and even teach them on their facial expression, which usually dosent work. Then when the picture didnt turn out well...they would quietly say its the photographer lousy.
I guess some of the blame does have to go to the photographer, but if Im paying top dollar for a model, is it too much to expect some standard from her?
