I have often wondered where that crossover point is where a photographer charges a model to do a shoot, or the model charges the photographer to do the shoot.
Quite often on MM you see models say they will work for TFP with the right photographer if it will add to their port. I personally have worked with many models but I have never had to pay a model for the time I have spent with her. I understand for some models there is a huge investment of time and this is the way they make their living, but as I explain to them, I am investing in equipment (20K), time to do the shoot, and countless hours in post processing to make her look like a model. The pay for her is the final product.
What has been your experience?
