Model Rates: Advice for Freelance Models. In this article, I outlined some things that freelance models should consider before setting their rates.
Factors such as the quality of your portfolio, your look, location, the competition and whether or not you have any additional skills (like hair and make-up) that make you worth the money can all affect your rates as a freelance model.
Whenever I contribute an article to the Model Mayhem EDU section, my goal is to be helpful to aspiring models and to provide them with useful information about the world of freelance modeling.
I'm very familiar with it because I've made quite a bit of money as a freelance model and I have also interviewed models who are far more successful in the industry than me. In fact, the income I made modeling helped me get through university and for that I will always be thankful.
I wanted to take this opportunity to say "Thank you" to everyone on Model Mayhem who has read my article and passed it along.
I'm looking forward to contributing more articles to MM EDU in 2013, which I hope will continue to be useful to the readers.
