Chris —

Thank you so much for reading and responding so thoughtfully.

I knew models didn’t make a lot, but that seems abysmal. When I was a booking agent, all our ladies used their own photos, which we provided a photographer for. They had the rights to all their photos as well, the agency did not attempt to hijack the images after someone left. But we were one of very few in the area I worked in who did that.

A lot of agencies would use model photos “similar” to the actual lady working. If they did provide photography, they held all the images and refused to send them to the lady. I’ve seen these images circulated as ‘model photos’ at a later date, with no compensation.

The sex industry is rife with exploitation.

Thank you again, you educated me on something I wasn’t aware of.
