Let's see if I can explain myself (english is not my native language)

I work as a photografer for weddings, events, and models who want a book for their model agencies.

But almost none of them ask for nude/glamour pics, so apart from those models working for men magazines, what are all these pics I see at glamour1.com for? I mean who pays for them? Becasue I dont think most of them are TFCD/TFP. Where does a nude/glamour photografer get the money from?

Just curious.

PD. I always ask myself this kind of questions when I see Bobby_G's fantastic work

While shooting nudes is not the majority of my business, I have made "decent" money shooting nude and semi-nude for a variety of women. Some models manage their own "pay" websites and pay me to shoot new content for them. Some models pay me for "Playboy quality" pictures that they (or we) can submit to Playboy. Some married women pay for sexy pictures to spice up their marriage. Some exotic dancers have paid for nude pictures so they can sign the picture and give it to their top customers. I also get a lot of business from "Escorts" and "Consorts" who want the images for their promotional websites. Heck ... last year I was approached by a company that manages those "sexy teen" websites and wanted to pay me to shoot some nude teens for them. I declined, but I'm sure some photographer out there picked up the gig (and the paycheck). Finally ... even some of my typical "modeling portfolio" models will sometimes end their shoot by asking me to shoot a few "astistic nudes" or "tasteful nudes" for them. I don't know what they do with the pictures, but I'm always happy to oblige.

In my case, the photos in my Glamour1 portfolio and my book (which are not all the same) come from three sources. (1) I was paid by someone other than the model, because I was hired to take the photos for specific commercial use. (2) I paid for the photo, because I decided to attend a workshop for the opportunity to work with more experienced glamour/nude models. (3) TFP/TFCD. I have also been paid to do photos for private use, but those photos do not go on the internet. Some of those can go in my book.

Professional photographers NEVER pay models, and if there is no client picking up the tab, the model gets no money.

Why do you think models are so thin? They have no food, because they have no money...

Amateur photographers on the other hand, do frequently pay models.

All amateur glamour photographers are independently wealthy, you have to be to afford the toys...

Actually, many/most are independently poor...

Otherwise, the wouldn't always be wondering where to find models. They would just hire some.

Thanks to all for your replies!

It's more or less what I guessed: I live in the wrong country

Living in country of just about 40 million people, only in big cities is easier to find models eager to shoot photos different from the usual thing.


I have only done FTCD once, I always get paid, otherwise I couldn't afford my gear. And I think people dont value what is "free".

Almost all of my work is trade with the models. It isn't 'free' , both model and phtographer bring something to the shoot. Time, equipment , wardrobe, the model's look are all contributions.

I do go to workshops and occasionally pay for a specific look, and photography is my hobby now, not my source of income any longer.
