Wondering what you all comp your models?
Not quite new to Fstoppers, but first time posting. I've been recently reviewing the way I conduct shoots, and one of the facets is how much I comp models. I don't want to get into a debate over pay vs. getting paid, I don't shoot for a business, just a professional hobby, and I believe in compensating people for their time while I continue learning. With that said, I would LOVE to hear from other photographers what they compensate models for Casual, Lingerie, Implied, and if you shoot it, topless or nudes.
I end up spending anywhere from 1000-1600 USD per shoot, mostly for outfits (I purchase everything I shoot), Location (studio/hotel/etc), and model, with MUA and any additional equipment rounding things out. I'm not really sure what reasonable rates are, so I'm sure I'm over charging. If anyone pays models for the above looks, would love to hear what you compensate! Thanks.
