these type of models are very common in the US and Europe. For them it is a good place to start to build a port for them to get noticed by big name agents. All you need is to go on the web and they are there.
always the Light, .... always.
Without further elaboration from you since my last rebuttal, I'll just make a bare rebuttal that is:
"Sorry bro, freelance do exists in the modelling world."
I guess in your world, freelance photographers don't exist either, nor do freelance makeup artists, or for that matter, the word freelance.
According to the MerrianWebster Dictionary, "Freelance" means:
1 ausually free lance : a mercenary soldier especially of the Middle Ages : condottiere b: a person who acts independently without being affiliated with or authorized by an organization2: a person who pursues a profession without a long-term commitment to any one employer
According to the Cambridge Dictionaries Online:
doing particular pieces of work for different organizations, rather than working all the time for a single organization
According to the Oxford English Dictionary:
adjective self-employed and hired to work for different companies on particular assignments.
Now, do you still insist that there are no freelance models?
Saw one that quoted quite a high range in the models directory of about some $300. I was thinking how in the world did they come up with those kind of figures. Which is why in CS other than low end of the spectrum to the mid end, that is the max I see. So far IIRC, I have not seen one for $500 yet.
The best part, many give mail addys. No port link at all. Else blogs.
As long as i don't see any props in my area of expertise i won't comment. Pls pls make the models hold bigger guns
