that's not very nice better knock out of it before the afternoon coffee turns sour ... if there's still any appetite for coffee

Carrying heavy equipment-> takes public transport-> shoot in high, low, lay flat climb up position-> pray hard equipment don't go kaput -> DL pics (takes times) -> DI pics (takes longer time) -> burn hard copies -> delivered to client -> collect payment.
Carrying small make up kit-> bring maybe 1 or 2 extra costumes-> take cab-> pose, twist, smile-> collect payment-> collect photos, depends whether photographers wants to give, but hey pretty gal ask for it, you don't give meh?.
Bro madman & Sion
Most Female Drummers are not that Feminine, it's quite normal....So, I dont think Photograher wants to take them ...Kekekeke only Photographer who are Drummers Themselves and we do have Monthly Meetups where all our Singaporeans Drummers meet....Well I can invite you all if you wanna have some fun taking Photographs of Drummers - This one is Free. We are Non-Profit Social Activity Group like you all.
Now - back to Topic. Why so called "models" with little or less experience can demand paid shoots?
Generally speaking - - - (not targeted at anyone here) Akin to Drummers, Whether you're one of Singapore Top Drummers or a Totally New Drummers into this passion as an example - You're still a Drummer in your own right and you're indeed a Drummer. you want to engage Jimmy Lee, or Tama Goh depending on how Professional they are - you pay their demanded price. If not get an average drummer or an average band for a function depending on your Budget and ocassion...same same here with MOdels
Models with less experience are Models too and can demand Paid Shots - She has her every right to name a price and if the price is not right - Dont pay lor... simple as that, she wont force us to pay also what. No contract here if terms are not agreeable.
Free Models - would be our personal friends or GFs something like that....We have to Pay for Service Rendered.
Would you all want to take Photos (for Free) for our Drum Xchange Singapore - Drummers - depending I guess...some would, some wouldn't...right same here.
PS: - and.... Dont Bash Rudi

How come no "model" speaks up in this thread?
I believed all these are just part of transactions... agree or not agree in the price quoted... negotiations fall in... experience or not... there will always be a stepping stone in everything we do... be it fail or succeed.
I've beginning to like Kopitiam more than P&P.. Everytime the same faces, same poses, sometimes the talents even wear the same outfits for every shoot. Its getting boring. This topic can be never ending. Supply and demand is one thing, another thing is... No matter who pay who, its all agreed and YOU did it willingly. There is nothing to argue about. I have many who think my rates are high but then again, there are also some who think my rates are reasonable! How to define this? Its tough...
Same goes for models.. As long as people willing to pay them. Nobody forces anybody
my chewbacca has done many themes before, and sometimes her companion princess leia will accompany her.. so you might get a two for one package.
see, softball nude themed shot held in national stadium:
