What is the average starting salary for a professional model?

A professional model starting out would be working on an hourly pay scale. The range is quite large depending on the specific job the person would be modeling for and could be anywhere from $10-$50 per hour and the work week would range from 15 to 20 hours per week. Translate the middle range ($20/per hour for 15 hrs/week) and you would come to around $15,000/year. Obviously, there are instances where individuals will make significantly more but this is a realistic range for someone just getting a start in the business. Also, the scale could range widely from city to city and country to country.
