A part of being a successful model is getting paid for jobs .
Being a freelance model comes with challenges and expenses.
Each client is different and so is their budget but as a freelance model is necessary you know your worth and also to have a starting fees.
What will influence your charges is the amount of experience you have and the strength of your portfolio.
This is because if a client pays you they expect you to deliver as a PRO and they will expect the bar to be very high, so be realistic about your skill and ability. Even when you have a lot of experience don’t expect to get the same amount as the agency represented model.
The price is also determined by
1 The type of gig, is it a fashion, swimsuit, trade show etc .
Glamour, swimsuit, artistic nude clients pays higher because of the nature of the shoot.
2 How long is the shoot
3 Are there expenses involve like transportation lodging and meals
4 Do u need to provide outfit of your own or do your hair and makeup.
