How much do models get paid?

UPDATE: According to The Model Alliance, an outfit that agitates for higher wages, estimates that the average regularly-employed model makes $27,000 a year. Part-timers and men make less.

It mainly depends on what kind of modeling. The more work that is booked, the more money a model can make, however, the salary of the average working model is around $30,000 a year.

But some get paid $40,000 a year if you are working for an agency in new york, L.A., and or miami. Another important factor that determines a models earnings is her experience( if she is a fashion model or a commercial print model) will determine her pay rate, modeling for print advertising campaigns pays more than fashion modeling because of the established industry rates. Also, having agency representation is crucial to a models earning potential because an agency can negotiate on the models behalf for the best pay scale for a particular model assignment.
