I have my first shots with models lined up on TF* basis, and would like to know the normal procedure on giving them pics. Do you normally give them high res photos or photos that are good for web use only, such as say 800 pixels on the long side? Also what is the typical number of photos to give a model for a 1 to 2 hour session?

thanks,
Randy

Give them a CD they can print from, and include watermarked low res versions for them to post to the web. Ask them to use the watermarked version if they put them on the internet. I give the model all the good photos.

You HAVE to give them full resolution,and unmarked photographs. Mark the ones for web use only. Modeling portfolios are usually 12x9 or similar size. They are working for free,so least you can do is to provide them with pictures they can print. You can always print them yourself. Just discuss that prior to hiring a model. And DO edit the photographs. You don't want an unedited photo of your with your name on it be shown everywhere...
Don't give out any bad photographs. It's better to give your model 20 great and edited pictures than 200 crappy,unedited and blurry ones. That's just Baaaaad

Thanks guys for the advise. Yes dmitrim, I would never give out unedited photographs. I want them to look top notch before handing them over. Nor would I give them crappy photos, only good ones. I would just be giving myself a bad reputation.

Thanks again, Randy

Keep in mind that, if you sell a CD of images for them to make green, underexposed, crappy prints at the corner drugstore, not only will you lose the sales, but those will be your crappy prints that will be shown to their friends? ;)
