I have a few questions i would like to ask anyone who may be helpful. I have considered modeling (not that i know i could) just always wanted too. One reason i like to have pictures taken of me and would love to try it and i wouldnt mind the money if its there to be made. My question is magazines like Playboy and Penthouse how much do they pay there models for just basic pics or nothing like playmate of the year or maybe the internet pics cyber girl etc. Just want to know if its worth the money i have no problem with the nude pics i would just like to know before i even try if there is money to be made in this and if any one knows how much.

Thanks

One thing to be aware of is Playboy will not use you as a playmate if you have other nude photos out there. That is one of their questions. They want to be your exclusive nude photo holder. Your value to them goes down if there are a lot of other nude photos in circulation. My understanding is that once you are a playmate they have you sign a contract that says you won't do any other photos for a certain amount of time. I'd talk to Holley Dorrough. She is on this site. Rolando discovered her.

I think the playmates make about 25k. The photographer gets 5K. But I don't know what the special editions girls get. Check with Holley or Rolando Gomez. Do a search for Holley or Rolando. They can fill you in.

http://www.glamour1.com/forums/members/holleyd0406.html This is the link to Holley's profile. She was the April 2006 Playboy Playmate. She can give you the best info on submitting and all the requirements. Rolando Gomez is her mentor and Photographer who photographed her for submission to Playboy. They work together regularly. Rolando is the producer for the Glamour1 site you are using so he is easy to find.

I look forward to seeing some of your images. I would be glad to add to your portfolio but I think you are a bit far for me. Although I will be on the east coast in Feb.

Good luck with your goals.

This is just my opinion based on the many of Rolando's workshops I've attended and the models I've worked with. So...

Much of it depends on you; your looks, figure, hair, etc. and your ability to portray a variety of looks. Every model has her own unique set of attributes, so evaluate yours and honestly decide what you may need to work on. One of the models I've worked with on several occassions who has all this down is Kristen Achee (now Miss Hawaiian Tropic International 2006). The lady is just plain stunning and very talented in front of the camera (and she doesn't do nudes by the way). As far as Playboy goes, another model I've worked with who's been in a Playboy Special Edition says commercial work actually pays better so do a little research. For portfolio pics, assemble those from a variety of photographers - you don't want your book all shot by the same guy. As far as nudes, don't be in any hurry to do those as they're not a prerequisite for success (unless of course, porn is the genre).

Best of luck,
Alan B.

Kelly Walls, the beautiful Kiwi I shot at Rose Bay in Sydney, Australia

Playboy generally pays between $500 to $1,500 to the model for pictures their photographers shoot for their magazine(s) like the special additions or "girls of..." (obviously not a centerfold shoot). You may or may not be paid for shots done by others and submitted to Playboy for internet use, it depends on the arrangement the photographer makes with you. When I shot on assignment for Playboy's internet site in Australia prior to the 2000 Sydney Olympics, the models were paid $500 directly by Playboy.

I would give you more information but without any images or vital statistics of you available it is impossible to know whether the it would be of any value. Put up some basic pictures and information (age, height, measurements, hair and eye color, location, etc.) and perhaps someone could be of more assistance. Those images should include a few face shots (smile and show those teeth!) and a few body shots (swimwear is fine) and should include a full length which shows your legs.

I have no idea what other magazines pay for nude images.
