We have made a start. Now is the time to accelerate a little. How about we pay a few good llamas. Than probably TFCD. Sounds like a plan?

I've only did TFP so far, not in it for the money but I am curious nonetheless, if you please. Thanks.

Holly:
I hope you can take it constructively. You are very beautiful - but for an actress I expected a range of emotions/expressions in front of the camera. I see only two - one suitable in a card game and the other says "I am glad".

Unless the above is reflected you may have to work on your port on TFCD basis.

I like your lighting. But a couple of clothed pics are ...err...not top notch..themes/conceptualizations/variety are a few things probably your port needs - in my opinion.
I am gonna say $40/hr

Please let me know?  I have been paid already, one shoot was 30/hour.  The other was 100 for a half day.

I completely concur with the two rates you got.

$30/hr or $25/hr for longer periods.

This may have been said already,

BUT Hourly rates do not apply to models (The main ingredient to the image) or photographers (The people who light and press the button.)  I have not shot for an hourly rate since 1978. Photographers work for a day rate, expenses and Post.  Travel is a separate fee. Then there is usage, by the client, and web usage.  With Magazines there is a lower day rate (assignments), expenses, space and web usage.  For models the issue is the usage of the images.

For photographers the ASMP has the guidelines and this pretty well layed out.

In 1978 I shot PR photos for $100.00 hr + expenses.  In the new millennium I shot a Country western signer for SONY records, a buyout for $5000.00 a day + Expenses, I could have made more money shooting it for free and licensing
the images to the magazines.  I've also handled "HOT NEWS" photos that were
licensed for one time use to the major magazines for $80,000.00  a pop.

This thread is a dis-service and most of it is poorly informed.

Keep in mind I am not now nore have I ever done "retail" photography.

Very nicely said. Is there some other portfolio we can see of your work. This one has only 7 pics.

For gothic models - get ups are their main strengths. You may wanna spend some on some get ups and revamp your port maybe?
