nothin'. they are happy if they can get away with their lives : )

Indeed fear is the best motivator. ;) Just scare the sheat out of them and they'll do anything for you ;D

They'r teen gals mostly, it's pretty easy to intimidate them : )))

nice attitude. remind me to remind my nieces about photographers like you....

Lol, Americans...

Edited for replying under the wrong post

I'm Canadian...

Even worse, as an American you'd at least have an excuse for not understanding humour that's a bit more demanding to get than dumb&dumber, american pie and all of the like comedies they make. Actually the vast majority of the comedies they make so that even a 10 year old 100 kg inbred kid gets it. No child left behind, right? (like in their school system, cause you're Canadian) I mean no one should be offended for not getting something, that's why health and safety ppl put all those idiotic warnings everywhere, usually for warning ppl not to eat something no one in his eight mind would think of eating. Check this to better understand it ;)

I don't know what to pay a model because I only know part time ex-models and never done those types of shoots anyway. If you mean for microstock you'd need to post the photos on as many stock sites as you can with the pay per DL mainly being so low. My wife looks the part but not sure if she can do it or my photos would be good enough (lighting etc)

From 2011.
May be a valid discussion again today. But likely better to start a new thread.

With low paying in microstock i would use friends,  family or myself. I think.

I stopped using models for microstock long ago you can't get your money back with these low earnings anymore and the pictures got misused all the time and are embarrassing the models I once used.

How can people afford to pay anything with the rates microstock pays?
