I was wondering if you all could provide me with some insight as to current rates for hiring a model. I have some stuff I just ordered and want to try out. I made contact with a local amateur model and she would like to work with me. I just find her rates a little high in my opinion and was wondering if you all could either confirm or correct me.
She is not a full time professional. She has been doing this for about a year now, part time on the side as the opportunity presents itself. This would be a casual shoot, in a public place, in casual clothes. This is only to work with new gear. Her rate is $75-100 an hour and she wants copies of every photo on a CD, plus the "better ones" after enhancement. Am I the only one who feels this is high?
