Hi Clubsnap!

Although my passion lies ultimately with photography, i'm currently doing freelance modeling to fund my expensive and expansive hobby. Having said that, i set up an account at a site called Model Mayhem, i'm sure some of you have heard of it.
I was recently approached by a photographer with the following query:

"Hi,
I'm organizing a group photo shoot for newbie photographers to expand their portfolio.
Just want to ask how much is your rate per hour for:
Glamor / Fashion="

Now then, i've spent the better part of the last hour on these forums trying to gauge a price range, but have come up absolutely empty on answers.
I've read much about "Charge how much you think you're worth" but as i've mentioned, i have very little professional experience, and have never given an "hourly" rate before.

I also read in these forums (from the photographer's point of view), that an experienced photographer could look at the pictures of a model and roughly gauge how much he thinks he/she is worth --> which lead me to post this thread.

Here is my profile on the site:

If possible i'd just like a ballpark figure out there of how much i should charge, based on my experience and previous projects, thanks ;)

Sorry, no shmexy eye candy on the other side of that link, i'm male :nono:

I would suggest that in your port, you should have at least a clear shot (centre, left, right) of your face. If people cant see you, they wouldnt spend time writing and begging you for a clear picture.

Thanks to both of you for the compliment and the suggestion; i've already decided on a rate with the photographer.
Jacephoto, i don't really see the relevance of your comment in this context ^^; i've never been begged for a clearer picture, nevertheless it might be useful to do as you say :)
