I will call local colleges and studios for high school artists to see if they are seeking nude models. What is the appropriate to say to them? I have convinced others to pose for me with clothes on before, but I am clueless on what to say for my own exhibition. I would explain to the school or studio that I am a learning artist myself. I would also have to state that I have never been a nude model before. I have not been to a model session before, but I have seen videos online.
How long does a session usually last for a classroom setting, and how much should I get paid per hour as amateur? I have never have posed professionally before, and I can hold a stretched out arm only for about five minutes. Then, I begin to shake a little. For less strenuous poses, I can keep for longer than twenty minutes. I cannot hold a pose for an hour. I will likely work with young artists.
It is great if I get to model, but I must know if this might hurt my career in the future. I wish to learn from the same schools myself and work in film or animation someday, and the students who see me nude will likely be my coworkers in the future. Unless, they don't recognize me with my clothes on.
