Live Model Classroom Etiquette?

Live Model Etiquette refers to some basic guidelines to follow when working with a live model.

Remember the model is here to do a job, so please respect their break time and limit your conversations accordingly. Please be quiet while they are posing. Too much movement or noise makes it hard for them to hold the pose.

If you liked the model's poses or felt that they did a good job, please give them a tip when the session is over. Some models charge money if you take reference photographs of them.

Photographing a model is ONLY permitted during a clothed or costumed sessions and at the model's discretion. Please ask first! Taking a shot of any model while posing nude is not allowed under any circumstance, no exceptions!
