Did your model get paid?

After great efforts of asking my colleague to sign the MR, I successfully uploaded my first MR image.

It's quite a tough task for me to get the model release.

I found there are many successful MR images in DT and wondered whether the model get paid from the images?

I often feel awkward to ask friends to be my model. On the other hand, I think it a gamble if I hire the professional model, at least for me, I have no idea whether my images of portrait could earn $ or not.

Thanks everyone.
Mildegard: Yes, I think I should start with my friends, if I could go further in the techniques, I also hope I could afford to hire the professional ones, which might in some way keep the quality of my photos.

Hello, I have more than 40 models and I have never paid one.They are all my family and friends.Dont feel awkward to ask friends to be your models,just tell them that it is their chance to have beautiful photos of themselves and as you start once and people see how wonderful your photos are they will call you to be your models, again and again!
Go for it!
