You have a keen eye for spotting beauty - in models as well as in locations. Photography comes naturally to you. A couple of pics in your port bring down your price due to poor light and exposure. But you still should charge $55~$60/hr

Really?? Which pics? Well how about that, I've been charging $20-$25. lol

You got very exotic looks. Yet, I cant figure out what could be your ethnic heritage. You can pass off for about 379 ethnic groups, give or take a couple! Please do tell me!!smile
I would pay about $65/hr because of your flawless skin tones alone.

Megan:
In my mind - There are 2 things that is stopping you from photographers and agencies breaking down your door, for you do belong to the top bracket - a non-nudity clause, a scorching port! I would advise you beg one of the best photogs from MM to shoot you to enhance your port and voila the sky is the limit! For now: $65/hr

You are very talented both as a photographer and as a retoucher. But I will pay you more on retouching services. As a photog we need more than 13 pics to make a fair assessment. Lets have some more TFCD.

HA, I think I have found a way around US workers rights laws (I'm going to call it "in family sourcing"). Now if only I could train my children to do hair and lighting set up.

Seriously though, I'm always telling the llamas how excited they should be to work with my wife, because she's at least 10 times more experienced than I am in this field. A lot of girls have quite a bit of skill in doing their own makeup, but I also think they enjoy letting someone who's commanded teams and done commercial print work take the reins for a day.

Ian:
Just for the spirit and the admiration you show for your wife - I am going to increase your team value to $125. $85 for your wife and the rest to be distributed equally between you and your kids.
Jokes apart - you guys are awesome. Be happy always!

As the cliche goes:
1. Take some modelling classes
2. Build your portfolio and show some variety in it. Even Hire someone good to do your port.
3. Show a range of emotions

Again its gonna be just an opinion - I see a few things wrong - a hint of arrogance in your write up, escort policy, a non-nudity clause brings down your score significantly - your beautiful smile notwithstanding. $25/hr
