Did You Know...? #5

...that high fashion and editorial models, especially in other countries outside the USA, make very little money--even for walking in big shows? Because of the high taxes in places like France, the modeling agencies sometimes take as much as 70% in commission from each job a model books! Even more surprising (although I have been trying to tell people this for years), it that the print and catalog models make the most money! (BTW: This is obviously not the case for supermodels but here I'm solely referencing the average, everyday working model)

Don't believe me? Check out the last page of this forum topic, where actual working, agency represented, international fashion models talk about their experiences and lack of pay for their efforts:

How much can a model expect to get paid, on average?

I guess having a print and catalog modeling job will give you extra money than high fashion and editorial modeling.
