I am curious. 

I am a mature commecial model and this is my main port.

I also have an alternate port under the name of Fine Wine where I post more sexy and 18+ pics.

Here is the link to my alternate port

If that doesn't work it is Fine Wine MM# 2609028''

So this thread is inspired by all of the profiles I've come across lately that say "Paid Assignments Only"

I'll give you my honest opinion about how much and if you should be paid.

*Some people I will even suggest pay others to help them, that doesn't necessarily mean that you're bad, just that you need to work with a higher level of photographers or models, and that you may need to pay them to accomplish it.

*Also, in my opinion, no one but celebrities and supermodels should ever limit themselves to only paid assignments. EVERYONE else should be at least open to hearing trade offers from their peers. Even the perfect portfolio needs updated!

I do 'tf' work - when it will benefit my port - or just cuz I feel like it.   hat do you think i'm worth?   (maybe a dollar cheezeburger?   -    I've been known to work for cheezeburgers!)

Photographers all over the world tell me they would love to shoot me untill I ask them if they at least can pay a part of the travelcosts.
I'm modelling already for almost 4 years now, I'm realistic enough to know I will never be a topmodel, but it doesn't mean I have to do all that for free? Right?

So i dont get it then,  I just graduated from college and trying to get into the photography world. so if the photographer is the one who should be getting paid then why are there so many models out there who wont shoot unless you pay them? if i am going to drive somewhere to photograph the model, set up and everything, then should i be the one getting paid. not them?

I'm a beginner, so I do only TF shoots now, but do you think I could grow enough as a model to be paid?
