    Actually I would prefer to go oversea and shoot the models.
    Their rate are more economical and professional.

    Quote an example. Went to Philippines for an Fine Art course. This course was conducted by one of the top schools in Manlia. The course fee was much much cheaper than the school conducted in Singapore or a CS model shoot (Lingerine). I am able to shoot two full days with different subjects with studio equipments free for use with lunch provided.

    A professional fashion model is different from a show/event model.

    I will pay according to portfolio strength, level of skillset, years of industry experience.. not becos they looked good

    For most oversea talents, been shot in lingeria or bikini Shoot are relatively normal, so it don't have too big a jump in prices.

    For local talents, it is a "BIG SACRIFICE" .....so they demend more $$$ to heal they fragile and innocent soul.

    To us, it is work and paid service.

    But many of them are already too pampered by their fans.

    the qns is not why local models are paid more than foreign models but why are people willing to pay more for them.

    when that willingness disappears, so does the disparity in fees.

    Local girls quote you a price, take it or leave it.... it doesn't matter to them at all if you dont want them, because they still stay in their parents house, eat and **** at home for free, etc ....
    always the Light, .... always.

    I think it is the same reason why it will cost more to hire a local domestic helper than a foreign one.
