There are typically two types of people two model, those who do it on a freelance or independent basis and those who are represented by some sort of agency.
When it comes to a photographer choosing who to work with, this can make a massive difference.
My preference, having worked with both, is to go with the freelancers as much as possible. Here’s why:
1. Less hoops to jump through for booking
2. You’re going to find more variety in look and style
3. More options for being creative in you work
4. Less overall red tape
