I was a freelance photographer from 1980 - 1997. I started my own little PR company and recently closed it and am going back to freelancing. I have a photographer's business profile I use and clients come to me. I either supply models myself or I put out the casting calls and refer responders directly to the client.
I have no problem using inexperienced models if the situation allows. my rate is 35.00/hour with a $100.00 retainer, which includes 2 hours of shooting. I hire out to agencies or individuals. I also do videography. It is nice to have models pre-screened and on file. I also will do TFP situations on a limited basis. As we work, if you don't have experience I also do model development for no charge. Everyone deserves a break.
