  1. YES YOU SHOULD SHARE THE PROFIT IF THEY HELPED OUT IN ANYWAY RIGHT NOW YOUR NOT GETTING PAID SO THEY CANT, BUT WHEN THEY CAN DEPENDING ON WHAT YOU MAKE SIT DOWN AND TALK TO THEM AND ARE THEY PROFESSIONAL MODELS IF SO THEY SHOULD GET PROFESSIONAL; PAY

  2. There are several ways you can do this:
    1. TFP/TFCD – time for prints or for CD’s of images… make sure you get a model release form signed and also explain copyright – it’s yours! This can also be good marketing for you if your images are displayed and there are some contact details on the image such as a discreet mention of your website.
    2. Fee split – eminently fair, but you need to have some realistic plans to sell and market your images.
    3. Pay for their time – the rate will depend on: the local market, their market level… you can expect to pay more for some than for others.

    This is always best discussed and agreed in advance – in writing!!

  3. Why should they pay you? I would love to ask my model to pay me for my magazine. Best of both worlds.
    You pay the models for their shoot and the pics are yours. If not, they own the pics.
