If I am paying a model, should I pay her for the time she sits in the makeup chair? We are not requiring her to let us do her makeup, but I am not fond of taking chances with what she does herself.

What do you think?

When I consult, I expect to be paid from the moment I arrive until the moment I depart.
On the rare occasions I paid a model - away back when - I paid her the same way.

When you go in to work and punch that time card do you want to be paid for the time you went and grabbed a coffee or just the time you worked? Also when you take on the role of the photographer shouldn’t you know all the aspects that come with it? You should know what to look for and help the model with her makeup. Not necessarily apply it but help her with the areas that need highlighting.

Maybe it’s just me but when I started out I wanted to know as much as I could so I learned my camera first then posing then makeup.

I should be clear. I have a makeup artist. I am not doing her makeup.

We strongly suggest that the model allow us to do her makeup, and most of the time they gladly accept. Some models prefer to do their own foundation, which usually annoys my makeup artist. The models rarely apply the foundation correctly (according to my MUA).

I agree that the model should get paid for all the time she spends in the studio or on location. I asked the question because I have seen some discussion about this elsewhere in which the consensus was that you start paying the model when she walks on the set. To me, makeup is part of the preparation for shooting, therefore it's part of the job.

"To me, makeup is part of the preparation for shooting, therefore it's part of the job."

If you want her to wear your make-up, you pay for her time applying it, whether your MUA does it, or you do it, or you have her do it with your cosmetics. The job starts when she shows up (well, maybe within 15 minutes of that moment) and goes until the she's ready to leave. IMO, anyway.

Would you consider stopping the clock when she steps off set to change wardrobe?

It's standard industry practice to pay the model for the entire time they are on the job, which includes make up and even lunch. I've always hired models on a day or half day basis though.

What do you think?
I think it's part of the "CREATING A PHOTOGRAPH" process, so YES you should pay them while sitting in the makeup chair.

As a photographer, I've always paid my models for the entire time they're at the shoot. This means they're getting paid while makeup's being done as well as for the time when I'm changing lighting setups, etc.
