Do you pay your models for submitting photos here? Or some kind of profit?

I often give them some beer to drink while shooting. :D

Sure, we pay the more professional models. We give a disk (TFCD) for the rest.

sure, this morning I award her the grand prize, which is , a wedding ring...
like Yuri Arcurs did with his top model.
ha!ha!... April Fool. (marry my top model? I wish !)

no seriously, yes I do give them a copy of every single selection that I use for stock.send them monthly updates of downloads, and make them composites so they can use them for their own model portfolio. and for my most proactive model(s), i share profit with them , not much from stock but 10%. i don't always write that in the MR, but I do send them a cheque whenever I can. even if they don't reach 10% of my dl. I pamper my best models, as they are usually students and don't have much. but more the reason is because they are precious to me. I enjoy their working for me and I want to maintain a long and lasting working relationship.

Yes £20 per hour. I am thinking of offering free commercial images to companies in return for their use in microstock but not certain whether this is permissible. David.
