Charity fashion shows

Sometimes a model will be paid anywhere from no fee to $75 dollars a show and up

Charity shows and benefit events will give a new model a chance to work with them because there may not be a large budget to put on the event so they will do a casting for girls just starting out with the look they are looking for to meet their budget to raise money for the benefit

Promotional Modeling Assignments

Clients look to hire new models as they are looking for new faces to sample their products

Many of the girls doing promotional modeling work are very young unless it is a promotion for a night club where there is an age requirement

Test Shoots

If your agency is offering a test shoot always take the booking if they recommend you to

It is a great opportunity for you to add photographs to your portfolio, learn new looks and moves in front of the camera

Spec Print is when a photographer is willing to shoot for a client for no fee in the hopes that the client will like their work and book them on future assignments another option for the model and photographer is that they will use the shots when complete and then pay an agreed usage fee
