    Default Breakdown of costs for Model Shoots

    Hi,

    I'm just wondering about the charges for model shoots. Why is it usually >$50 for ten minutes of shooting only please? I'm a novice to model shoots so just aim to understand more.

    Thank you.

    It depends on whether the shoot is studio or location based and so on. Here's a rough breakdown of the cost factors involved for each.

    Studio Shoot (model)
    - Studio Hire (based on hourly rate)
    - Equipment costs (and depreciation)
    - Refreshments (if any)
    - Electricity, water, and sundry services
    - Profit for studio owner
    - Any other wages (eg: makeup person and their costs involved etc).
    - Statutory taxes etc

    Location Shoot:
    - Equipment costs/hire costs
    - Additional staff costs (PA's, makeup, hair etc)
    - Location hire fees
    - Council/Police/Governmental fees/charges as required.
    - Refreshments
    - Transportation costs
    - Taxes
    - Sundries

    On top of the above add in the cost of the model(s) and that folks can vary from next to nothing for a new model (couple of hundred for a day), to ten thousand plus USD per hour for a so called super model (plus all expenses).
