She works hard for the money...

There's more to life than being really, really, really
ridiculously good looking...
-- Derek Zoolander (aka Ben Stiller)

I was wrong about modeling. It turns out that it's a lot harder than it looks. A few months ago, I was part of a modeling photography workshop that featured local models-in-training A. and M.

The workshop lasted about five hours but at the end of it the girls were tired for sure. Much like firefighting, a lot of modeling involves sitting around and waiting for 'THINGS' to get set up... flashes, scrims, reflectors. Once that is done the models then have to be 'on' for the camera immediately. No bored or disinterested looks allowed.

I'm not sure that supermodels are worth the money they make, but your journeyman model earns her money.
