WOW Share! 15: "Tips for New Models" - Dom Bower
I partly disagree with the pricing structure Dom has mentioned in the video because how it works here in the U.S. may not be the same in the area Dom is from (UK). When a photographer/art director hires a model for whatever level they have, they will pay and not work TF because the photos and likenesses from the photos that the model provides will be used for commercial purposes for commercial gain. Nobody should earn money on anyone’s likenesses without some kind of compensation. TF, TFP, TFCD, etc… should be for non-commercial usage and for portfolio usages only, that may or may not include advertising for the photographer and models that would depend on the agreements that the model(s) and photographer(s) agree based on the TF agreement. I do agree when a photographer and model has the same level of skill and experience they should do TF… but not when it involves any commercial usages for whatever parties involved.
