  3. Great posts. I have been working on pricing for a few weeks now. Especially with the upcoming season. I've practiced on my friends long enough, but now its time to turn around and really go the more professional route. Any tips to share for starting off? NOTE: You may have a blog post about that, but I'm behind in my readings.

  4. As far as starting off have you tried model mayhem? Try doing some TF shoots. It's also good to contact some agencies or other MUA's to see if they need an assistant.
