For those of you who use models, do you get them from agencies?

What is the average pay for a model?

I was thinking of putting up some ads at the local college, but I'm not sure what a fair price is.

Awesome, thanks!

I was hoping $50/hour was the right range. :)  And my plan is to post notices in the theater bulletin areas at the local university.

$10-$20 is the right range for non-model models.

Well, most people hiring non-model models stepping in front of the camera for the first time aren't going to make thousands off of the images.  I'm all for compensating where compensation is due, but I see no reason to pay first time college students $50/hour.

What about commissions on the photos? Or pay plus commission.? Would this be more work than it's worth?

Yes, more work that it is worth.

I have paid as little as nothing, but given the models a CD of retouched images.
I have paid as much as $100 per hr for a very experienced model.

In general in my area (Southern California) the semi-pro models are asking $75 per hour but are willing to take $50.

A good model and MUA can make or break a photo shoot.
So I am in full agreement with Chumley on the importance of good talent.

I find some on Model Mayhem, and some are referrals from people that I have already worked with. After a while you will build a reputation and people will actually seek you out.
