I'm a man and men make much less in this business than women. And my average hourly pay typically depends on assignment but is never less than $150 an hour. Many aquantances of mine make 750-1200 hour and these arn't HUGE models. ElectroPopTart 7 years It just goes to show how flipping HARD those FAMOUS models must work! Bettyesque 7 years 11! Thats crazy lol guess it doesnt pay to be sooo good looking, thats great ... um I will keep my job! Asia84 7 years I work in the fashion industry (not as a model), and it is all dependent on the show/designer/brand the model is working for. then you have to factor in the level they are at, the niche, etc.there really is no way to average it out.and trust me, they make more than that an hour. also you have to factor in the girl's agency too.LMAO, charity models get paid more than that per hour.

When you consider your weekly circular Target/JcPenney's model...very few of them will ever see the megabucks!!! cubadog 7 years With my job I actually work with fit models and they make anywhere from $75 - $125 per hour so I obviously got the question wrong. lms 7 years They averaged it out between actual jobs booked. My 7 yr old has been modeling for years and the minimum is $75 an hour and some jobs guarantee a 2 hr payment regardless of how long you were there. Adult models get more per hour generally. Obviously when you get up in the ranks you earn way more. sophia_HL 7 years Yeah, if it was really $11/hr no one would care to do it. tiaregirl 7 years to poizenisxkandee: yeah, that would def. make more sense! tiaregirl 7 years to poizenisxkandee:yeah, that would def. make more sense! tiaregirl 7 years Really? My best friend is a model (small-time, dept store ads, local runways shows and such) and she gets min. of $75/hr. I'm surprised at the $11 rates! i-am-elle 7 years Eh who cares haha. :-P i-am-elle 7 years Eh who cares haha. :-P poizenisxkandee 7 years well thats a little misleading, how much per hour average like income per year divided by hours per year worked? or how much made per hour times hours worked? because some freelance models make 200 per set, and well say thats like 5 hours, but they dont work every day of the year, so thats like 40 per hour, but maybe only 10 hours that month or something? right? books-and-shoes 7 years Good to know I didn't get into the wrong field, haha! ehadams 7 years Wow I thought they made a lot more. This makes me feel better about my job. Haha! Veekore 7 years Is this taking into account statistical outliers like Cindy Crawford, etc? TidalWave 7 years Usually they get to keep the clothes they wore during the shoots though, which is probably worth more than $11/hr Martini-Rossi 7 years huh? Martini-Rossi 7 years huh? bingkaycoy 7 years I know this because my cousin is a model here in the US. Unless you're in the ranks of Gisele Bundchen, then y ou're worth millions. SkinnyMarie 7 years IS that who that is? Her nose changes in every picture I have looked at. Did she get that paris hilton nose shaved off?
