    Hi guys

    After doing a recent modelling shoot with my 15 year old daughter she has decided she would like to make a bit pocket money by offering her services to other photographers! I obviously have her safety in mind first and foremost and was wondering if anyone could help me with a rough idea of how much she should charge and where is the best way to advertise her services. Bearing in mind some of them seem to be very much "adult" themed! Thanks

    Standard modelling fees are between 10 and 50 per hour. The price depends on experience and what the model will do. A very experienced "adult" model will easily get 50, while an inexperienced fully clothed model may find it hard to get minimum.
    You have to be very careful that she makes it clear about age and that she will not do adult type material.
    I'd start by contacting the local camera club and see if they would like to hire her.
    She could join a modelling agency - there are several who specialise in children and organise the shoot, costs etc. Watch out some charge a fee up front to join and you may never get any work!
    She could join one of the model sites (although you'd have to check if there are age restrictions). And they do often tend to be more adult themed
    Local paper classified ads may help, make sure she's accompanied on all shoots! It's totally acceptable and even more experienced models who've been doing it for years have a chaperone.

    Thanks for that Pete. I would of course always chaperone! I dont suppose you know of any of the sites who specialise in children/teens??

    There are many if you search google but I have no experience of any. I notice there's a Sun investigation into three that may be interesting to read.

    It would seem after google searches most are scams wanting money up front, or soft porn which is not what she is looking for at all, thank god!!! It would seem best option would be classifieds!!

    Another option might be to contact local hairdressers, clothes shops, fashion accessories etc and ask if they want a model to help illustrate their products.
